Our Counsellor

Sarah Stokel-Walker

Why did I become a counsellor?


I feel as though I didn't choose to become a counsellor...

counselling chose me.

I have always been drawn to helping and supporting others, 

and am curious about people's lives, the choices they make, 

and their story about how they developed and grew as a person 

Becoming a counsellor was a natural choice for me.

I love my job!

I trained at The Sherwood Psychotherapy Training Institute as a Humanistic and Integrative Counsellor and Psychotherapist, where I achieved a BSc Counselling and Psychotherapy honours degree


I have attended numerous workshops and training opportunities focusing on safeguarding, assessments and confidentiality, trauma, substance misuse, mental health and self harm
