Welcome

Hello, I’m Sasha.

I offer psychotherapy and therapeutic life coaching to individuals, couples and groups. I 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.

“When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.”

Dr Wayne Dyer

Before training as a psychotherapist, I spent 10 years as a commercial lawyer. I have also been a musician for most of my life. 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.

Training & Professional Accreditation

My theoretical approach is Humanistic and Integrative. I have completed a 4-year Advanced Diploma in Transactional Analysis Psychotherapy (UK level 7 (masters), Irish equivalent level 9). My core training is accredited by the United Kingdom Association for Transactional Analysis, a training organisation within the UK Council for Psychotherapy’s Humanistic and Integrative College.

I am a Registered Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), a certified Mental Health First Aider, and a certified ASIST responder. My client work has spanned the charity, voluntary and education sectors over the last seven years. I have worked with clients from diverse backgrounds, who were experiencing a wide range of issues including:

  • Anxiety
  • Bullying
  • Childhood abuse
  • Depression
  • Domestic abuse
  • Emigration and cultural difference
  • Flashbacks
  • Low self esteem
  • PTSD
  • Rape and sexual abuse
  • Relationship issues
  • Sexual identity and sexual orientation (re-)discovery
  • Stress
  • Trauma

Group Psychotherapy

The aim of group therapy is to facilitate healing and growth through the experience of connection and belonging in a community.  Group therapy has many benefits including:

  • allowing for a realisation and experience that you aren’t alone;
  • experiencing a safe, confidential space in which you can explore the emotional challenges you are facing;
  • providing a non-judgmental space for reflection in the here and now on how you experience others, and how others may experience you;
  • helping you to find your voice and/or find different ways of being in relationship with others; and
  • affordability.

I offer three groups:

  • This Is Us – a general group open to everyone
  • Home From Home – for people of African and Caribbean heritage living in the diaspora
  • Holding Space – for people who look after vulnerable others

These are closed groups, limited to 6 clients in each. Once a group fills up, a waiting list is in place so that a new group can start once 6 more people have expressed interest. Each group meets weekly for 90 minutes via Zoom videoconferencing.  The cost is £30 per session.

If you are interested in joining a group, call me on +44 7849 811 358 or email me at therapywithsasha@gmail.com to arrange your free 30- minute consultation. We will discuss your current concerns, needs, future goals and the structure of group therapy.

Therapeutic Life Coaching

Mindset masterclasses leave you in a muddle?

Can’t get the knack of the Law of Attraction?

Feeling stuck?

Let me help you to get from ‘good’ to GREAT !

I integrate Law of Attraction coaching and Transactional Analysis psychotherapy, gently helping my clients to:

  • transform that “stuck” feeling into one of joyous movement forward
  • experience emotional healing, personal growth, and spiritual development
  • reconnect with their inner authentic self
  • create the relationships, experiences and life they want

Are you ready to do the work?

Unlike most coaches, I don’t offer group sessions, workbooks, webinars, Facebook community, or mass emails. Instead:

You get my undivided attention.

This is because I know that you’ll get the best results from a bespoke therapeutic coaching experience, tailored exclusively to you. You deserve this.

Panel 4

testimonials

“Sasha has guided me though an incredibly difficult personal journey of understanding and realisation. She has shown me the meaning and importance of self care. 5 months ago I found myself in a very emotionally stuck and painful place.
I didn’t think I could actually be where I am now, but I have slowly found my own way of seeing differently which has had a profound effect on day to day life, situations and relationships. I feel strong but with a calm and peaceful approach to my life. My strength has come from the conscious ability I now have to let go of all that no longer needs to cause me pain.
The word ‘ending’ used to terrify me, associating it with a past trauma, now the saying the word ending means it allows a beginning. This sounds cliched but utterly true – a warm a glowing lightness has replaced the hard unforgiving darkness I had previous to my sessions with Sasha. I can’t recommend her enough, thank you for helping me help myself.

– A.H.

“Our sessions with Sasha has been a great way to explore our relationship and to understand how each other thinks which has improved our relationship. The sessions were very open and Sasha was good at picking up words or comments that I thought were ‘off the cuff’ remarks and drilling down into the detail as it became apparent they had more meaning then we’d realised!”
