Sara Pendlebury, MA, MSc, HG.Dip.P, Therapist

Member of Human Givens Institute, European Therapy Studies Institute; Level 1 Internal Family Systems; Narm informed Professional

After a commercial career in Asia, I settled in France with my family. I love the mountains, skiing, and I am also a painter/printmaker. In 2008 I discovered the Human Givens approach to therapy, and have been a practitioner since 2011. I am also a Level 1 Internal Family Systems Therapist (IFS) and a Narm (Neuro Affective Relational Model) Professional. I am currently completing my studies to become an accredited Art therapist in France.  I offer therapy for adults, children, and couples in and around Chamonix-Mont-Blanc.

My consultation rooms are in an old farmhouse in Argentière, at the top of the Chamonix valley.

I can help you deal with anxiety, depression of all kinds, anger problems, loss and grief, addiction, sleep problems, loss of confidence, overwhelm, OCD and Trauma. I also work with children and teens, using painting and play therapy.

I work additionally as a Business Coach, and a Creativity Coach: I have 20 years plus experience in the corporate world of business management, and the principles learned in the diploma in Human Givens helped me in my corporate roles. As a keen artist, I understand the blocks that creative of all types can face and, the principles that I share have been useful to me in my own creative practice. Finally, my work can sometimes involve skiing and the mountains: I use therapy with skiing, particularly using visualization and guided imagery.
