Sarah Haskett

I’m a specialist mental health nurse and cognitive behavioural therapist. I deliver psychotherapy for a range of common mental health problems such as depression, low self-esteem, general anxiety, panic, health anxiety, social anxiety and obsessive compulsive issues.

My professional training includes a foundation in anatomy and physiology as part of my mental health nursing degree. I am a BABCP accredited Cognitive Behavioural Therapist within general primary care and long term health conditions. I hold a BTEC in adult education and practice in nursing mentorship, CBT supervision and creative coaching.

I am passionate in creative expression for good mental health and using creative ways to tackle stigma and aid understanding in our community. I have a background in acting and teaching youth theatre, and still perform at times holding a registration with Equity Arts Federation. I have studied with Adrian Jackson of Cardboard Citizens in facilitating Forum Theatre (also known as the Theatre of the Oppressed) which has been my main mode of integrating my psychological work with my love for acting. I have recently discovered performance in comedy and improv, which has enriched my life in so many ways! I love to play the West & North African hand drums, and have always been in love with dance of all forms throughout my life, but especially Middle Eastern dance which I perform and train regularly in.

Having acting, comedy, improv, dance and African percussion, in my life has provided me with life long friendships, confidence and joy that I cherish everyday.
