Sara Bishop
Director and Founder
I am an experienced therapist with over 26 years experience of private practice with a special interest in trauma. I love sharing my passion for the wellbeing of people. As a trainer of adults I enjoy seeing students push themselves to their true potential. I believe that education needs to be fun, humorous and that the stories we tell each other go to the heart of the human condition. I believe in the marvelous way people find creative solutions to their issues.

Rachel Cutler
Tutor
I am a trainer and counsellor in private practice and an accredited member of the BACP. I gained a Post Graduate Diploma in Humanistic Therapeutic Counselling at the University of Brighton and a Post Graduate Diploma in Psychology at London Metropolitan University. I am also a qualified Life Coach. I have worked as an oral and social historian for the British Library and have lectured in sport history and culture at the universities of Surrey and Southampton. I have a special interest in the relationship between physical wellbeing and mental health and I am currently working on research into the correlation between positive self-esteem and body modification. As part of the Dunamis Therapy Hub I want to promote excellence in training and help develop the next generation of counsellors, with a focus on the use of creativity in learning.
