Sarah Jane has helped me immensely in my journey towards a better quality of life. In just a matter of months I could see so much growth in myself, from learning how to shift away from negative and catastrophic thinking towards a growth mindset and being able to own my achievements more often and with more positivism and self reflection.
I always felt safe with her, being able to express feelings that I associated with guilt and shame, and going on hard journeys through a host of difficult emotions that allowed me to better understand my truth and how to put my needs first whilst learning to establish healthy boundaries.
Sarah Jane always had a number of useful worksheets to refer me to as we navigated so many topics and emotions, from grief to cognitive distortion to forgiveness and healthy communication. I have learned so much and can only smile when I remember all the times I managed to laugh. Who would have thought that laughter could feature in therapy?
Thanks so much for all the support, compassion and kindness you have given me on this journey to healing and happiness!
