Sarah Hinds is a BACP accredited counsellor, a singer/songwriter and musician. She originally trained in person-centred counselling. She now works integratively and has a creative approach to her therapeutic work. She often works with clients outdoors at The Garden, a centre for counselling and personal development, offering specialised support for women, performers and musicians and those affected by concerns about the climate crisis.

Sarah has worked with musicians, singers, actors and dancers. She has worked with performing artists on: self-esteem, confidence, boundaries  and dealing with rejection; creative process and blocks to self-expression; maintaining personal integrity/authenticity and finding/maintaining meaning and purpose; dealing with the effects of performing or being a high achiever at a young age; the impact of high pressure schooling/parenting and boarding school, dealing with the ‘highs and lows’ of being a performer and concerns about the environmental impact of the music industry. She also offers specific support around the menstrual cycle, menopause and women's life transitions and has counselled women who have experienced abuse, sexual violence or domestic abuse.

With an understanding of the impact of working in the arts and with creative people, Sarah is aware of the complex impacts of performing on many of her clients and of the struggle to find the right therapeutic support in the creative industry.

Sarah is also a Sesame (drama and movement in therapy) practitioner and can work therapeutically with movement, story and sound.
