Only Human Therapy is owned and run by Sara Shoesmith. Offering a solution focussed and holistic approach to Psychotherapy/Counselling. Practice is based on emotional needs and innate resources that we are all born with. Working closely with each client, the aim is to specifically tailor the therapy to each individual. There is no one size fits all when it comes to holistic Therapy. Therapy does not have to be a painful experience, mulling over the past as some might expect.

This practical approach is firmly based on a scientific understanding of the mind and body, namely the latest findings in Neuroscience and the relationship between Gut Health and Mental Health. This knowledge of how human beings function, what makes us tick, enables us to give hope and better empathise with clients. This modern approach also means that powerful, proven techniques can be used to neutralise Trauma safely and non-invasively.

Sara has been amazing! I feel like I can now cope with my emotions when things get bad. It was a good experience and has renewed my faith in mental health help.

I came to Sara feeling very anxious about a variety of aspects in my life. Sara immediately made me feel at ease. I felt comfortable talking to her and opening up about the way I was feeling. Over the course of five weeks we identified triggers to my anxiety, the reasons to why I was reacting in certain ways, and strategies to help me cope. In a short time I feel like a cloud has lifted and I am back on track. Thank you.

What a fantastic service! I don’t think I’ll ever truly be able to thank Sara enough for the help she has given myself and my family.

Only Human Therapy Q&A

Only Human Therapy Q&A

What do you love most about your job?

I am honoured to be in a position of knowledge and understanding to be able to help others. I get great satisfaction from being able to see improvements in my clients emotional wellbeing and see their confidence grow. It is extremely powerful that I can make such a difference in just one session and truly change lives.

What inspired you to start your own business?

An interest in Psychology from a young age has propelled me in my training, however more recently I suffered from Post Natal Depression which has given me a newfound insight into understanding Depression and helping in a more compassionate and effective way an almost spiritual level.

Why should our clients choose you?

I have recent training in techniques that are based on Neuroscience and how human beings work. It is proven to bring about significant results in just 3-4 sessions. I also have personal experience of what mental illness can be like, therefore am more motivated to help others get their lives back and not be plagued by a mental illness. Only Human's aim is to get people back on track in as few sessions as possible, saving clients money and enabling them to become equipped to deal with problems on their own and not rely on therapy in the future. That is my vision!
