What our client's say about us

  • From the moment you walk into the room you feel the warmth of Sarah’s personality. She is very good at assessing how to help you and does it with gentle steps. She has been an enormous help and encouragement to me as we have worked together on my phobia and OCD. I recommend her very highly indeed.
  • Over the years, in our sessions there were many tears, laughter and so many aha moments, where I had gradually began to see the light again, my wounded heart could open a little more and my mind could turn that corner, to see things a little differently.
  • Sarah helped me to stop smoking with hypnotherapy. I still see her from time to time for anxiety. 
    I am still a none smoker!
  • I came to Sarah for CBT. I’d been signed off from work and had some serious stress issues. Sarah listened and helped me to make sense of the confusion I was feeling. She also taught me ways to help myself. I feel strong and in control now.
  • I was unimaginably fortunate to have met Sarah after I had lost my mother to cancer. I was in excrutiating emotional pain. Swaying daily between anxiety, depression guilt, deep despair and insomnia. I really couldn’t see the light at the end of the tunnel, my world as I had known it had collapsed. On reflection I remember that I had almost crawled into Sarah’s room seeking some relief from my pain


Effective Life offers a wide range of interventions each providing its own unique programme with benefits. Some focus on psychological wellbeing and others on physical wellbeing and relaxation. Employers or employees simply choose the intervention best suited to their needs.


CBT can change your attitudes towards things. Hopes, wants, and desires are all attitudes – as are fears, worries and phobias. Many psychological issues have their roots in inaccurate attitudes towards the self, others and the world.


Counselling offers a safe time and space in which to talk, air concerns and reflect. Prompting, in the form of gentle questions, can help people look at issues in new ways and identify options for change.


Hypnotherapy is the use of hypnosis to bring about therapeutic benefits and positive change. It is a natural state of relaxation which you allow yourself to enter. The sensation experienced during hypnosis is similar to that of daydreaming or meditation.


Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) asserts that if one person can do something well, it is possible for another to learn it. It teaches you how to model successful performance and gives you the opportunity to reach your desired goals.
