My name is Saskia and I am an experienced counsellor and peer worker. I've seen many therapists throughout my life, with experiences ranging from transformative to frustrating. I know that for many people the hierarchical relationship between therapist and client can be demeaning and disempowering. My practice is particularly focused on supporting those have trouble with these traditional therapeutic relationships. My approach is collaborative and informal, involving you as an equal partner in the process of therapy.

Can you relate to either of these statements: “I’m sick of these patterns. I’m scared I’ll end up alone.” or “I don’t know if I can ever heal from this”? If you struggle with gridlocked conflict, lack of intimacy or the hurt of infidelity, I can help. I support people who understand the importance of healthy and stable relationships to repair, renew and relate more deeply. I assist individuals and couples in relationship crises to gain tools and grow from attachment insecurity, infidelity and betrayal, loss of trust, passion or intimacy, ongoing conflict, overwhelm, anxiety, trauma, managing dysregulation and life transitions.

Do you wonder whether your goals and aspirations have been influenced by society? Perhaps if you were truly living for YOU, your goals would look quite different. Anxiety can dominate our lives until we start uncovering what we truly want out of life. Radically accepting yourself - and understanding your true desires and values - can set you on a more meaningful and fulfilling path. Looking at our issues in a Holistic way allows us to understand ourselves better, which fosters self-compassion.
