Sarah Worley, MSc MBPsS
I have over ten years' experience in wellbeing and psychology, helping people heal their lives from the inside out.
I work with clients aged 18+ from a diverse range of backgrounds. My passion is to help you get from surviving to thriving, enabling you to discover how much more you can get from life when you start shifting your reality. I am very down to earth in my approach; working with a sense of connection, integrity, openness and honesty is so important to me. I bring humour to the sessions and a sense of humanity and compassion.
I have a passion for music and the arts and have recently qualified in Performing Arts Medicine, so I am keen to work with musicians or artists to help you unlock your potential, overcome performance anxiety and reach new levels of creative expression.
Alongside my private coaching practice, I have worked extensively with students (including mature and post-graduate students) as Wellbeing Officer for Arts University Bournemouth and as the manager of the NHS led Student Wellbeing service at Bournemouth University. I am unable to offer private services to students from the University of Portsmouth as I am currently employed as a Senior Wellbeing Advisor at the University.
Prior to my work with students, I spent over five years working for Solent Mind, helping adults with severe mental health conditions on their path towards recovery. I have also worked with victims of crime and sexual assault in my role as Victim Care Officer for Victim Support and with elderly and disabled adults at The Royal Star and Garter Home for Disabled Ex-Servicemen and Women.
I have carried out research in the field of Health Psychology at the University of Southampton and am a qualified Wellness Recovery Action Plan (WRAP) Facilitator - click here to find out more.
