If you are struggling with intense feelings of fear, anxiety and sadness and if you find yourself full of panic, despair and frustration you may be trying to understand why you are trapped in these feelings much of the time. If you ruminate on situations, worry about past events, struggle to connect to those in your life and find your days consumed by worry, anger and stress, then a period of therapy may help you to gain insight into the origins of your emotional distress.

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.

I get you. I worked for many years in the corporate creative world, moving into psychotherapy using the arts specifically to work with burnout, anxiety and stress. Because I came from that background I know how important confidentially and trust is, I also believe you deserve support tailored specifically to your unique needs. That's why I work privately out of office hours. Perhaps you have a secret you can't discuss with others, maybe you want to regain your edge, be confident in you relationships, or perhaps you just want to be able to get out of bed in the morning?

From the outside it might look as though you are coping well in your life, but inside it's a different story. Sometimes it feels as though you're only just getting by. You might be juggling children, responsibilities for parents and all the pressures of a job and it's beginning to show. This might look like symptoms of anxiety that no amount of relaxing affirmations seem to shift. Or it could be that you're irritable and on the edge of anger a lot of the time. Perhaps you're just straight forward feeling sad and unsure of the point of anything anymore. You just want to being "you" again.

Having experienced my own, at times, bumpy journey it has given me a fierce and unshakeable belief that change is possible in us all and we all have the potential to have a life beyond our wildest dreams!

Sometimes we feel stuck in our lives, unable to cope as well as we'd like. Even if we have support around us, perhaps we feel unable to talk freely or fully with friends or family, fearing being judged or a burden. We may be struggling with anxiety, low mood, loss, anger, poor self-esteem, stress or with negative experiences, relationships, thoughts and emotions. When our sense of self is off-kilter, it can feel like being trapped in a circle, searching for a way to unlock ourselves from being stuck. When life's difficulties make us feel hemmed in, blocking our sense of ease, finding support can help to uncover a path forward.

It could be something from your past that is having an effect on how you feel today. Perhaps there is something going on right now that needs airing, exploring & working through. Sometimes the future can be feel scary, bleak or even pointless. It could be that you just don’t feel quite right.

Is everyone in the Psychology Today Therapy Directory a licensed therapist?

Counsellors and Psychotherapists listed in the directory are members of the main professional associations, mainly the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP). Most Psychologists in the directory are accredited members of the British Psychological Society (BPS) and/or are registered in the Health and Care Professions Council (HPCP).

Providers whose professional membership or primary credential has been verified by Psychology Today are signified by a “Verified” symbol. Given that professional memberships are not a statutory requirement for psychotherapists and counsellors in the UK, certain qualified professionals or organisations may choose not to maintain such memberships despite possessing the necessary qualifications. They may be selectively included without the “Verified” seal.

What’s the difference between a psychologist, a therapist, and a counsellor?

Counsellors, psychotherapists and psychologists can all provide counselling or talking therapy and have credentials and experience that enable them to do so in the UK. Psychologists have earned a degree in psychology and many are members of the British Psychological Society (BPS) and have completed a postgraduate qualification in a specialism. Counsellors and Psychotherapists are not required to have a psychology degree, but to belong to a professional organisation such as the BACP or UKCP, they are required to have completed a training course as well as clinical and supervision hours.

What type of therapy is right for me?

The type of therapy best suited to a particular individual depends on several factors, including their primary reason for seeking therapy, their preferred timeline (some therapy types last for a set number of sessions, while others are open-ended), and their personality and preferences—some may prefer a more structured approach. For many individuals, multiple types of therapy could provide a good fit.

How much does therapy cost?

The cost of therapy depends on a number of variables, including location and the therapist’s experience and training. On average, a therapy session in the UK could be between £30 - £60 when seeing a counsellor and £60 - £150 and up when seeing a clinical psychologist. If you have private insurance, your plan may cover some if not all of your sessions. You should contact your insurance provider to determine if they provide coverage for therapy sessions and to determine what, if any, requirements they might have in order for your sessions to be covered, such as a referral from your GP or medical specialist.

What are more affordable or low cost therapy solutions?

Many therapists offer sliding scale payments, usually on a limited number of slots, which consists in an agreement between the therapist and a client to pay a reduced rate. Therapists who provide such arrangements often consider the client's income or ability to pay, but the extent of the discount is ultimately at the therapist's discretion. Furthermore, while group therapy may have different goals and benefits compared to individual therapy, it can be a more affordable solution to address certain types of issues.

If you are struggling to access therapy due to budget constraints, you could also consider public funded mental health services. The NHS Talking therapies programme offers free of charge counselling for common mental health problems like anxiety and depression. The service is available to anyone registered with a GP, though you do not necessarily need to be referred by your GP and can refer yourself directly to a Talking therapies service. The service will provide different solutions, including group and individual therapy, for a limited number of sessions which are generally up to six.

Is online therapy cheaper than in-person therapy?

Many therapists charge the same amount for online therapy as they do for in-person therapy—though clients may still find this cost-effective if it cuts down on their transportation costs. Health insurance plans often offer equivalent coverage for online and in-person therapy; indeed, in many places, they are legally required to do so. Text-based or on-demand therapy apps may be cheaper than traditional one-on-one psychotherapy; however, the practice may be less effective and is not likely to be covered by insurance.

Is online therapy a good option?

Therapy conducted online can be just as effective as in-person therapy, as long as there is a strong alliance between the client and the therapist. To find a therapist who provides telehealth services to clients in your area, click “Online Therapy” on the directory homepage and search by your city or town or your postcode.

Are therapy sessions confidential?

Therapists who are part of a professional organisation such as the BACP, the UKCP, or BPS are bound by an ethical framework that requires them to uphold a confidentiality agreement. Confidentiality is a crucial part of the therapeutic relationship and only under specific circumstances, such as when there has been participation in a criminal act or act of terror, or if there is potential or known harm to the client or others, will a therapist be obligated to break the agreement. These exceptions to the confidentiality agreement are usually discussed during the initial consultation.
