I warmly welcome you to Sarah Hanison Counselling and Psychotherapy. I am an experienced accredited Counsellor and Psychotherapist registered with the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy, (UKCP), and a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). My approach is holistic and integrative, drawing on transpersonal training.
I am also an accredited Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) practitioner registered with the Association for the Advancement of Meridian Energy Techniques (AAMET), and Matrix Reimprinting and Matrix Birth Reimprinting practitioner .
I currently see clients from the Chiropractic & Wellness Centre in Rickmansworth, and from my home in Croxley Green. My location is also convenient for people living and working in Watford, Chorleywood, Sarratt, Amersham and St Albans, and surrounding areas in Hertfordshire and Buckinghamshire.
I practice in a warm, compassionate and person-centred way. My role is to appreciate what life is like in your shoes as we work collaboratively to understand your experiences; to process your sorrows and pain; to help unearth the inner resources and personal qualities you already have (but might not know it yet); and in doing so, to help you discover new ways of being and relating; that transformation is possible, and that life can be lived fully and authentically.
Sometimes there is a purpose behind sadness and suffering, that life’s challenges offer unique opportunities for growth; to discover a deeper sense of ourselves, to find meaning and strength and clarity, to find our balance and creative voice.
First and foremost, our work together is centred on building a relationship where you feel safe and more at ease. This is about your story, about weaving together the narrative of your life; it is you who knows your experiences, your thoughts and feelings. So bearing this is in mind, and deeply respecting your individuality, we can work in a variety of ways; as well as the traditional ‘talking cure’, our time together might also include EFT, Matrix Reimprinting, Matrix Birth Reimprinting, Multi-Modal CBT, mindfulness and meditation, body and breath work, creative visualisation, symbolic drawing and art, and exploration of personal dreams and archetypal material.
I am absolutely committed to providing therapy in a safe, confidential and non-judgemental space. I have supervision for my work, a professional ethical requirement, and any material discussed is presented anonymously and is strictly confidential.
