Sacha Barlow is an integrative psychotherapist and a member of BACP. She holds an MA in Counselling and Psychotherapy and a Diploma in the supervision of therapists. She has completed a course for previously qualified counsellors at London Marriage Guidance. She currently works with clients in TAC’s NHS service at a GP surgery in Wandsworth.
Sacha has completed a number of trainings from different modalities, but believes that the most important part of any therapy is the counselling relationship and reliance on Carl Rodger’s key fundamentals of empathy and authentic communication. She also realises that no two people are the same and the cure for one may be the downfall of another. She believes in the humanistic concept that when appropriately supported the client more often than not, will know which direction to follow, and it should be the therapist’s role to support and aid in this growth.
Sacha has also worked for many years as a classical musician as well as a teacher and mentor. Her role as a teacher for seven years enabled her to understand how very important is it to equip people with all the relevant required skills in any situation. Her musical training has highlighted the value of listening to others in order to work collaboratively in a timely fashion. She is pleased to have helped people with anxiety issues and stage fright as well as more generalised anxiety and depression. She has seen patients in the NHS in Psychiatric outpatients as well as working with students in adult education. She has also worked extensively with couples with various kinds of relationship concerns (including infertility and loss) at London Marriage Guidance.
