About me and my therapy practice

I am trained in Contemporary Psychotherapy, a pluralistic approach that puts my clients at the centre. I am also a Pesso Boyden practitioner and facilitator. All are words that perhaps don't yet tell you much. 

I’m not your traditional therapist.

I’m authentic and approachable, but I don’t shy away from kind, challenging and ‘basic’ language. Let’s say that I care and swear. I believe therapy should be far from a cold, clinical experience – that just not me. My training has equipped me to facilitate change through natural conversation, but it doesn’t make me superior to you. You are the expert of your own life.

In therapy, there’s no room for judgment. I deeply respect the trust you place in me, and I’m committed to maintaining a nonjudgmental, safe space.

If you’re willing to put in the time and effort during our therapeutic journey, change is absolutely within reach.

Ultimately, I’m here to collaborate with you.

Practice description

A pluralistic approach

I received my psychotherapy training in Contemporary Psychotherapy, a method pioneered by Pamela Gawler-Wright at the BeeLeaf Institute for Contemporary Psychotherapy. This training brings together elements from various therapeutic approaches, starting with Person-Centred core conditions of empathy, unconditional positive regard and congruence. Weaving in elements of systemic, NLP and the latest insights from neuroscience. It draws on therapies like Fritz Perls’ Gestalt therapy, Virginia Satir’s Family Systems therapy, and Milton Erickson’s Hypnotherapy. See the Contemporary Psychotherapy introduction paper here.

Mind-body as one

I am also trained in Pesso Boyden Psychomotor System (PBSP), a body-based psychotherapy. Our body is a means of communication and exploration so I firmly believe in using body techniques to strengthen the dialogue between me and my clients about what is being experienced and perceived. It may be as simple as breathing exercises, grounding or therapeutically engaging with expressive behaviours such as posture, gestures, facial expression, movement.

Always Learning

I’m interested in many aspects of therapy and am committed to continuing my professional and personal development through ongoing training and lifelong learning. I receive regular supervision to support my work and safeguard both me and my clients.

As a fellow human with plenty of history I aim to tap into all my experiences to help me empathise and understand my clients and walk with them on their journey of self-discovery.

Beyond the therapy room

Through my work in London, I’ve built up experience in leadership development, organisational culture and managing teams and organisations through change. I’ve developed strong coaching skills through many years of managing large, diverse teams of staff in emotive, challenging environments.

About me and my therapy practice

No need for therapist formalities - I'm a real human like you, still figuring out life's complications. My name's Sasha and I believe in keeping things real and with a sensitivity to the context we live in. You'll get straight-talk from me but without judgment. I trained in Contemporary Psychotherapy so I get the mind-body-behavior connection and focus on your goals now. Respect and compassion anchor our work. Change happens through consistency and connection, not magic. I will be alongside you and bring empathy, wit and wisdom to our collaboration.

Based in Folkestone, London and online, I draw on my psychotherapy skills in other areas of my career, supporting individuals through a wide-range of issues, including difficulties with mental health, changes in personal life, relationship challenges, redundancies and work-related stress and anxiety.
