Meet our new Counsellor Sasha Leigh Sasha is a qualified Integrative Counsellor and Psychotherapist and registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (PGDip, MBACP).
Therapeutic counselling is a process which involves exploring your unique circumstances and challenges to help you improve how you’re feeling and make beneficial changes in your life. Sasha works to build open and trusting therapeutic relationships and will take time to listen, explore and understand the world from your point of view and at your own pace. You can talk about anything that’s troubling you, confidentially and without judgment, including things you may not have felt able to share with anyone else. Sasha holds a deep interest in people and is continually inspired by the changes people make through counselling. She finds real meaning in helping people find their way to feeling more fulfilled and content in their lives.
Sasha has wide experience working with many mental health symptoms including depression, anxiety, stress and burnout. Whilst she works with all the challenges life can bring, she has particular experience and interest in long-term and chronic health conditions, major life transitions and change, grief and loss. She also has specialist training and experience in working with past trauma.
Sasha’s experience as a counsellor includes working in NHS primary care general practice in England and in a trauma therapy service in South Wales. She has over fifteen years of experience with the Samaritans providing emotional support over the phone, face-to- face and via email and has also supported individuals longer-term through Bristol-based organisations such as the West of England Centre for Inclusive Living (WECIL), Changes and Womankind. She is currently also a volunteer counsellor with St Peter’s Hospice.
