Sarah Hanison

Accredited psychotherapist specialising in trauma, pregnancy, birth & parenthood

About me

Hello, and a very warm welcome. Whatever is troubling you, whatever the stress or anxiety or trauma, let's work together gently and creatively to support your healing and moving forwards.

I am an experienced accredited counsellor and psychotherapist and EFT and Matrix Reimprinting Practitioner with over 10 years in practice helping and supporting adults. I work either in person from a safe and confidential space in Croxley Green or Rickmansworth, or online (via video, voice, IM, email, telephone).

As a woman and mother myself I have a special interest in women's psychological health and particularly in the following: a deeply transformative experience of menstruation, peri-menopause and menopause; pregnancy and motherhood - what happens to a woman's identity at this time; and in fertility issues, antenatal or perinatal depression, postnatal depression and illness, birth trauma, and the trauma of losing a baby; whether by miscarriage, still birth, neonatal death or sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS).

I integrate EFT and Matrix Reimprinting into my psychotherapy practice and also offer them as stand-alone therapies. EFT is a wonderfully safe, effective and gentle technique for trauma (PTSD), phobias and addictions, stress, anxiety and panic, depression, beliefs … it benefits most things. Utilising EFT and visualisation techniques both these therapies offer a very effective way in processing and clearing deep trauma without necessarily having to relive the actual event and risk retraumatisation.

Matrix Birth Reimprinting helps to gently clear trauma and stress that took place at conception, in utero, birth, and the hours and days after being born (many of our core beliefs and behaviours can be traced back to birth). It is also helpful for infertility issues, loss of a child, miscarriage, abortion, and adoption.

First and foremost, our work together is centred on building a relationship where you feel safe and more at ease. This is about your story, about weaving together the narrative of your life; it is you who knows your sorrows and joys, your thoughts and feelings. My role is to understand what life is like for you as we work collaboratively to make sense of your experiences, to help you unearth the inner resources and personal qualities you already possess in order to cope better and find new ways of being and relating. Sometimes life’s challenges really do offer unique opportunities for growth.

I very much look forward to working with you. Please contact me in the first instance to discuss what you are looking for and how I can help.
