Dr. Sarah Davies
Chartered Integrative Counselling Psychologist
As a Chartered Integrative Counselling Psychologist I am trained in a number of different psychological therapy techniques and draw on a variety of effective approaches to suit each individual. Above all, I am passionate about offering a pragmatic and holistic approach to mental health.
I offer private psychotherapy and counselling sessions for adults in the Harley Street region of Marylebone, Central London W1. Most of the work I do now is via online therapy sessions and intensive therapy retreat days as well as private home visits.
Having trained at leading institutes for Counselling Psychology and Psychotherapy, my roles have included; Consultant Psychologist & Biochemical Restoration advisor for a high-end private clinic in Ireland; and therapist and clinical co-ordinator for the exclusive clinic Kusnacht Practice in Switzerland. Other roles have been in primary healthcare settings, charity, general mental health and neuro-rehabilitation in the UK.
Throughout my journey of studying the mind at depth, I became increasingly intrigued with the importance of mind-body connection in emotional health and how this can often be lost following stress, trauma or when experiencing mental health problems. Supporting a healthy connection, alliance and harmony between mind and body is an integral part of how I work therapeutically. This includes specialist psychological therapies, body-based approaches, mindfulness and meditation practices, yoga, TRE (trauma-release exercises) and nutrition.
Since 2007 I have worked with individuals experiencing a range of mental health issues including; anxiety and anxiety-related disorders such as panic and OCD, depression, addictions, eating disorders, PTSD, relational issues, personality disorders, interpersonal difficulties and the underlying trauma, blocked processes or biochemical imbalances that often co-exists with these complaints. Specialist interests include narcissistic abuse, codependency, anxiety, stress and trauma. I have also published a self-help book for narcissistic abuse and toxic relationships - How to Leave a Narcissist... for Good
I continue to train in evidence-based psychotherapies and allied approaches and my work is supported with regular clinical supervision. From my training and work experience gained from the UK and across Europe, I adopt a holistic approach to psychological health and emotional wellbeing.
As well as being a qualified Practitioner Psychologist, I have also undertaken further training in trauma treatment approaches such as EMDR therapy, Sensorimotor Psychotherapyy, TRE and Yoga Therapy. Further studies include psychonutrition and advanced nutrient therapy having trained with renowned Dr. William Walsh of the Walsh Research Institute in the U.S.A - a pioneer of advanced nutrient therapy in the area of mental health, autism, behavioural and neurological health conditions.
My clinical research interests include psychological perspectives of time, addiction, trauma and the use of yoga, nutrition and organic biochemical restoration in supporting positive mental health. I have produced and published research studies in these areas and also contribute to blogs and media to share ideas on holistic approaches to mental health & wellbeing.
