Hi, I’m Sasha.
I offer psychotherapy to individuals and couples online via videoconference. I support my clients through their unique journeys of self-reflection, making sense of difficult situations and experiences, emotional healing, and understanding and dissolving blocks to personal fulfilment.
There are many reasons why people may seek out a psychotherapist. Some may be struggling with specific mental health issues, such as depression, anxiety, or trauma, while others may be looking to address more general feelings of unhappiness, dissatisfaction, or lack of purpose. Some may be looking to improve their relationships, to cope with major life changes or transitions, or to gain a deeper understanding of themselves and their experiences.
Others may be looking for support in understanding and exploring their spiritual beliefs and experiences, or to find meaning and purpose in their lives. Some may be seeking to heal from past traumas, to improve their self-esteem and self-worth, or to develop better communication and coping skills.
Ultimately, the reasons for seeking therapy are as unique as the individuals themselves, and it’s important to find a therapist who is able to understand and address your specific needs and goals. Whether you are looking to resolve a specific issue or to gain a deeper understanding of yourself and your place in the world, a psychotherapist can provide a safe and supportive space for you to explore your feelings and experiences, and to work towards greater self-awareness, well-being, and fulfillment.
My philosophy aligns with the Transactional Analysis Psychotherapy principle that people are all created inherently OK. Early emotional and practical experiences of family and cultures help people to form a frame of reference through which experiences are understood. This frame of reference, together with an inherent sense of Self, shapes the way people think and feel about themselves and others. The frame of reference also informs the meaning made of later experiences and the stories or life scripts that people create for themselves.
I believe that the journey of self-discovery and personal growth is not only about addressing and resolving emotional and psychological issues, but also about connecting with one’s spiritual self. I see psychotherapy as a collaborative process that helps individuals to explore and understand their inner selves, and to increasingly embody the attributes of spontaneity, autonomy and intimacy that lead to healthy functioning in life.
In therapy, I use a combination of techniques and approaches from Relational Transactional Analysis, mindfulness, dream analysis, body-centred work, and inner child work, to help individuals gain insight into their thoughts and behaviors, and to identify and address any underlying emotional or psychological issues. I also believe that the therapist-client relationship is an essential part of the therapeutic process. I aim to create a safe, supportive, and non-judgmental space for clients to explore their feelings and experiences.
By working with me, you will have the opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of yourself and your experiences, to move beyond ‘coping’, to develop new ways of thinking and being, and to find a new sense of meaning and purpose in your life. Together, we will work to create a sense of inner peace and well-being, to help you navigate through life’s challenges and to set you on track to reaching your full potential.
