"I have been seeing Sacha for the last two years. When I began therapy I was going through a difficult time, my self-esteem was low and my emotions were high. I had been thinking about therapy for a long time but I finally came to a tipping point and decided to put aside my fears about seeking help. It was tough to make that leap but it’s one of the best decisions I have made and I am extremely grateful that I had Sacha to guide me through the challenging experience of opening up and coming to terms with my emotions. She creates a calm, safe and reassuring environment where I am comfortable to share and reflect on my life and take positive action. She has been proactive and open to trying different approaches to find what I respond to best so that I get the most out of the time we have. Therapy with Sacha has made a significant impact in my life and my art and I know will continue to do so."

"I was a client of Sacha's for a year and a half. During this time she helped me greatly to understand and resolve a number of issues I had been avoiding for many years. The process was extremely eye opening and rewarding, even though at times also tough but necessary. I attribute a great amount of the success of these sessions to Sacha's abilities as a counsellor. She showed me huge amounts of understanding and guidance, both professionally and intuitively. Despite already being both a listener and guide, she also taught me how to process my own thoughts and emotions, eventually allowing me to actively engage with and direct my own self development. I consider my time spent with Sacha invaluable; my only regret being I had not chosen to do this many years ago. I strongly endorse Sacha's abilities, professionalism and character and I am extremely grateful for the support and help I received during my time with her."

"I have been working with Sacha for around a year now, on a regular basis, and I’ve seen a big improvement in my approach to life situations that I find difficult. We have taken on some challenging exercises which have helped me to discover more about my relationships with other people. I’m confident that when I have an appointment with Sacha, I will get a lot out of it.”

“When I first came to see Sacha for counselling I felt like I couldn’t cope, I was like a soldier running through a cave and tearing it up destructively. Eleven months later, I had the feeling of being able to accept myself and felt like a monk sitting peacefully in a cave."

"I have been seeing Sacha for three years now. Thinking back to the place I was in when I first saw her to how I feel about myself now seems almost another lifetime ago. I’m much more confident in myself and value my wants and needs much more. She has taught me the importance of making space for all of my feelings, whilst reminding me that I am also much more than these thoughts and feelings. Her presence is full of genuine compassion and she has a true ability to listen deeply.
These three years have allowed me to create an honest and trusting relationship with someone in a safe and non-judgemental space, opening up the possibility of deep healing. She has supported and guided me through some emotionally challenging times, helping me to understand that in life it is both the positive and negative experiences that bring us to our highest self. I leave my sessions with energy and love, and more skills to settle myself from within.
For the first time, I’m beginning to know myself.
