Hello, I’m Sasha.
I offer psychotherapy and therapeutic life coaching to individuals, couples and groups. I mainly work online via videoconference. Supporting my clients through their unique journeys of emotional healing and personal growth, I invite my clients to use their personal power for self-reflection, making sense of difficult situations and experiences, and understanding and dissolving blocks to personal fulfilment.
My philosophy is that all people are born OK. Life and history inform and help to shape how people see themselves and the outside world. My purpose in psychotherapy is to help my clients develop their relationship with their self, others and the external world. I believe that relationship and co-creation fundamentally inform how people make meaning of experience. I invite my clients to use their personal power to create emotional healing and personal growth.
Before training as a psychotherapist, I spent 10 years as a commercial lawyer. I am also a musician and calligrapher. My immersion in the legal and creative fields inform my therapeutic style, which is gently and humorously up-front. I invite my clients to be kind to themselves and to tap into their own creativity.
