Sarah HoughtonGestalt Therapist

The mind-body connection is central to my interest in working at WeightMatters.

My History

Before training as a psychotherapist I completed my first degree in psychology, followed by an MSc in occupational psychology. I have worked professionally in a range of environments from 1-1 teaching of children with autism to internal events and communications at the BBC. Parallel to my training, I currently run two national leadership development programmes in the education sector.

My belief is that deep self-acceptance can allow us to relax into our bodies in order to inhabit them more comfortably.

My approach to psychotherapy

I am in my dissertation year of an MSc in Gestalt Psychotherapy at Metanoia Institute. Gestalt draws its influences from a diverse range of sources including psychology, eastern spirituality, psychoanalysis and existential philosophy. The client and therapist work together to increase the client’s awareness of their way of being in the world in an embodied way. Increased awareness of our own body responses allows for experimenting with alternatives to those behaviours which may have become habitual.

Our bodies are so fundamental to who we are in the world and how we hold our space and place.
