Sarah Roberts Integrative Counsellor and Psychotherapist London E8Sarah Roberts:

Integrative Counsellor & Psychotherapist (MBACP)

(Currently fully booked)


Hello, my name is Sarah Roberts and I am an Integrative Counsellor & Psychotherapist who works with adults. I am currently available to work online with clients across the UK, and in-person with clients in London – including at HQ Therapy Rooms in Haggerston, Hackney, E8.

I use the terms counselling and psychotherapy/therapy interchangeably when referring to the support I provide through listening, warmth, gentle challenge, exploration and empathy in a confidential and safe environment.

Some people come to therapy knowing what they want from it, and some people come confused and unsure. Whichever you relate to more, we will work together at your pace towards healing and change.

The therapeutic approaches I have integrated into my practice are:

Person-centred therapy

Psychodynamic therapy (including attachment-based theory)

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)

I also draw from ideas from Gestalt therapy and Transactional Analysis (TA) and have an interest in the enneagram as a tool to develop self-awareness.

 

Training and Experience
I have completed certificates in Helpline Skills (Kirklees Rape and Sexual Abuse Counselling Centre – KRASACC), Introduction to Counselling Skills (The Minster Centre) and Moving Your Practice Online (Online Therapy Institute).

I have also gained a qualification in Mental Health First Aid and Advocacy in the Workplace (Learning Curve Group) and graduated with an MA with a Distinction in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy (University of Roehampton).

Prior to counselling training, I gained experience working with survivors of human trafficking, survivors of domestic abuse, and people dealing with unplanned pregnancies.

As a therapist, I have experience working with the NHS to provide short-term therapy, as well as providing long-term therapy at community centres in London and at a pregnancy loss service.

I have worked with clients from a range of ages and backgrounds facing trauma, bereavement and loss, anxiety and depression, low self-esteem, life transitions and change, anger, confusion, feeling stuck and identity issues.

As a registered member of the BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy), I am committed to an ethical framework and code of conduct, alongside ongoing learning and growth through Continuing professional development (CPD).

 

Fees
I offer a free 15-20 minute phone call for an opportunity for you to ask questions and an initial chance to see if I might be the right counsellor for you.  After this, each 50-minute session is £65.

Some people prefer to skip the phone call and meet for a full 50-minute initial session – whether this is also on the phone, via Zoom, or face-to-face. In this case, the initial session will cost £45, with any following sessions charged at £65.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why Should I Seek Therapy?

Many people, new to this type of help, believe that they need to be suffering from “mental illness” or serious “psychological problems”, or be in crisis in order for therapy and counselling to be appropriate for them. This is a common misconception; anyone can benefit from therapy when it comes to helping you deal with your personal feelings and problems, make positive changes in your life, and understand yourself better.

So what is therapy and counselling? If you’re new to this world then the first steps can sometimes be the most difficult. Therapy can be a very effective treatment for a whole range of personal problems covering areas from physical and emotional problems, different types of behavioural disorders, through to human sexuality issues and a host of wellbeing and complementary therapy techniques.

Any problem you have that is causing you concern, anxiety or distress is a valid and appropriate reason to reach out and find a therapist and talk to them about it. Far from something to be ashamed of, acknowledging your vulnerability and asking for help is a sign of maturity and strength.

If you feel that you have a desire and are committed to making changes in your life in order to overcome your current problems and achieve more long-term satisfaction, psychological wellbeing and personal fulfilment, then you are ready to seek therapy. We are here to help you work through a wide range of therapy issues that might be troubling you.

Will Information About Me Be Safe & Secure?

It is quite normal to be hesitant when it comes to sharing private and intimate information about yourself with a stranger. You may fear that you will receive judgment from your therapist, or that your therapist will share your details with others.

HQ Therapy Rooms takes your privacy and confidentiality very seriously. Our therapists are required to keep everything said in therapy sessions between you, just like your doctor is required to keep your records private.

For therapy to be effective, there must be unconditional trust built between you and your therapist, and this relies on a shared understanding of confidentiality. It applies to the outside world as well: it is standard practice for therapists not to acknowledge their clients if they run into them outside of the therapy rooms in order to help protect their client’s confidentiality. Read our full privacy policy for more information.

Can I Contact You For Advice About Getting Therapy?

Talking about your thoughts and feelings with a supportive therapist can often make you feel better and help you face your problems. It feels good to be listened to and to know that someone cares about you and wants to help. It is important that you find a therapist with whom you feel comfortable and can build a trusting relationship to help you make positive changes in your life.

But how do you know what type of therapy is right for you? Taking the first steps in finding the right therapist can be the biggest hurdle for newcomers, so we have made it easy. Simply fill out the form below in confidence, and one of our fully qualified referral therapists can work with you to make sure you connect with the right practitioner and receive the correct therapy and counselling services you require.

Our practitioners deal with a wide range of therapy issues using different types of therapy modalities tailored for the types of clients we work with. We also cater for people who are beset with financial difficulties, offering them services ranging from low-cost therapy and reduced rate therapy, to working with seasoned, qualified and accredited talking therapists.
