My name is Sarah Graham and I work as a psychotherapist based in the centre of Belper, in Derbyshire. If after reading further information on my website you feel you would like to make an appointment, then please contact me (see contact page) to book an appointment.

Psychotherapy and Counselling
Psychotherapy and counselling can help us to manage ourselves and our relationships with others better. If we learn to understand why we do the things we do then we can also begin to have a better understanding of others. So therapy therefore helps improve our relationship with ourselves and with others.

I work with people in order that they may be able to manage and understand many different problems or difficulties that they may be experiencing; for example relationship difficulties, anxiety, depression, anger and/or rage issues, childhood difficulties, abuse, addiction, and bereavement.

People make the decision that they want to start therapy for many reasons; for example they may want to understand themselves better (why they do the things they do for example)...they may decide to come for therapy because they are experiencing an ongoing feeling of dissatisfaction, or they may decide to come because they have a longing to simply feel better.

As an Integrative Psychotherapist my approach is based on the belief that our development as children, in particular our early relationships, helps shape us as adults and that these early relationships have a profound effect on how we form our beliefs and attitudes about ourselves and others.

I work within an ethical framework outlined by the UKCP (United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy).
