Psychotherapy, Coaching and Massage Therapy
Welcome to my website.
I'm Sarah Lewin. a BACP registered Counsellor and Psychotherapist, a Life Coach, Hypnotherapist and Massage Therapist.
I work online, by telephone and face to face. I also offer outdoor therapy at Colwick and Gedling Country Park.
"Therapy is for strong, resilient people that want to change and live their best life. I guess thats you"?
Have you had enough and feel ready for change?
Are you in your 30's and wondering what you are meant to be doing with your life?
Are you in mid life and having a coming of age moment, asking yourself if this is as good as it gets?
Are you fed up with feeling this way and looking to realise your inner strengths and resilience?
Do you experience anxiety, fear and panic and don't know why?
You may be looking for a therapist to just listen and be empathic and understanding while you share your story. It is of great therapeutic benefit to share our story with another and can be a huge release. Especially is thats someone who will accept us for who we are, and not judge us.
You may, however, be feeling that the balance of life just isn't working for you right now. You may be confused, stressed, irritable or unhappy but not sure why.
Counselling is focusing on problems and past experiences and how they have lead you to where you are now, and in the therapy room.
Coaching is about finding solutions to your problems. Looking at every aspect of your life and finding out what you want to change and how to go about that in a way that feels comfortable for you.
Anxiety, depression, panic and fears are all symptoms of the wider picture, and once we start looking at your emotional needs and goals then you are likely to feel much less stressed, anxious, fearful and depressed. Its about taking control and uncovering your inner resources.
It can be really difficult to reach out to ask for help, but talking to a professional about whats troubling you can be a great relief and healing in itself.
Things can begin to change very quickly in most cases. Therapy can be a very empowering experience and allow your to feel that you have more control over your life than you may realise. We can explore options and help you to see things from another perspective, that may feel much more positive.
Here is a safe space where you can just be you and feel comfortable sharing whatever part of you that you feel requires change, and the fact that you are reading this now would say you are ready for change.
I have over 20 years of experience working with people with anxiety, confidence issues, fears and phobias, relationships and more.

Supporting your Physical Health
Whether Massage Therapy is something you have tried before or not, it goes hand in hand with supporting your mental and emotional health. You may be looking for some relief from aches or pains, whether muscle or joint pain. You may be looking to relief tension in your shoulders or lower back, or suffering from regular headaches and migraines. Most of these issues do not have a physical connection and are purely related to our emotions and stress.
If you have been struggling with any of the above for some time and found no relief I would urge you to book yourself a Massage and see how the techniques and healing power of touch can make you feel lighter and looser again. I am trained to incorporate heat in the form of hot stones, aromotherapy, deep tissue, and trigger point therapy, which can all provide pain relief and relaxation.

During my 20+ years as a therapist, I have helping people relax and destress in various locations. In a Spa on a Cruise Ship called the Disney Magic, in care homes, corporate clients in the workplace and in the community, as a freelance therapist I work both mobile and from a therapy centre, offering Swedish, deep tissue, hot stones, aromatherapy and advance massage therapy.
In 2001 I qualified as a Hypnotherapist in Nottingham, as I wanted to destress peoples minds as well as their bodies. This gave me some great skills to work with anxiety, phobias and confidence issues. After some years, I completed a BSc Hons degree in Humanistic/Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy at the Sherwood Psychotherapy Training Institute. I continue to complete training and professional development to enable me to offer the best support to clients whether through Psychotherapy or Massage.
I am not very good at answering my phone, so you can email me at [email protected], or via the email contact form on this page telling me a little about what you are looking for help with and I will get back to you to arrange the first session.
