About me

Hello, I'm Sarah Freed and I have been a practising therapist for over 15 years, originally within an NHS setting and now in private practice.


My ethos is that healing can come in many shapes and forms, depending on the individual. I incorporate creative activities into my talking therapy to aid the healing process at a deeper, more sub-conscious level. You don't need to be 'good at art'. Creativity encourages us to 'play' and explore, important aspects of being human, which often are forgotten in adulthood.


Eight years ago, I began writing poetry and have found it a wonderful outlet for expressing my emotions. I have since published two poetry books and continue to write poems all the time. I have worked with lots of people who have found their own voice, in their own way, and learnt to express whatever it is they needed to say. Photography is also a passion of mine and I am hugely influenced by the natural world.

I work within a framework that encourages wellbeing at every level - emotional, physical, spiritual and mental (or the mind). Balance in all areas is the key to a contended life.


Prior to my psychotherapy training, I worked in the private sector for many years. I also worked within a learning and development setting where I provided coaching and performance feedback for employees.

As an accredited member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy, I adhere to their Code of Ethics.
