Hi there, I’m Sasha – a BACP registered integrative counsellor and psychotherapist working with adults in-person in Hackney and online.
Our lives can often feel challenging. You may be struggling right now, have faced emotional difficulties for a long time, or would just like to understand how to live a richer life. It takes courage to seek out support, but counselling and psychotherapy can help you so that you don’t have to manage on your own.
Together we would look at what’s going on in your life and what you want for yourself. You may be looking to explore uncertainties about your future, communication in relationships, difficult decisions or transitions, or questions about identity. Sometimes this involves exploring your past experiences to understand how they could be contributing to your current feelings or behaviour, whereas some people prefer to focus on the here and now.
Whatever your process, I provide a warm and grounded space where you can feel at ease – a trusting therapeutic relationship is central to my approach. Therapy can often strengthen self-awareness, and it’s this knowledge that leads to healing or growth.
I draw on person-centred and psychodynamic approaches, and deliberately use elements from other theories – I am led by you and tailor my approach to suit your needs and what feels natural to you.
I have experience across a range of mental health settings, including in a charity for people with suicidal thoughts, delivering trauma-informed therapy for people living with HIV, and as a health and wellbeing coach within the NHS.
I work with people from all walks of life, whatever their age, race, ethnicity, cultural heritage, socioeconomic background, gender identity or sexuality.
I offer an initial free 15-minute call to get a flavour of how we would work together and to see if we’re a good fit. This is also a chance for you to ask any questions about the process, with no expectation or obligation to continue sessions together.
My fee is £65 for a 50-minute session
I offer some reduced-rate slots for those who would struggle to pay the standard rate. Please get in touch to discuss this option.
