Let me introduce myself...My name is Sascha Rodgers and
I have been working as a counsellor and psychotherapist for
12 years now. I am committed to providing counselling
and psychotherapy in a safe, confidential and non-judgmental
environment. I work with individual adults on an open-ended
basis or for an agreed time period, with the aim of enabling
you to overcome any difficulties you might be experiencing.
I am a qualified counsellor and psychotherapist with full accredited membership status with the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy. I have completed a four year postgraduate diploma in transpersonal integrative counselling and psychotherapy at the Centre for Counselling & Psychotherapy Education in London, W2. This training has incorporated the four main approaches in psychotherapy, namely psychodynamic, humanistic, existential and transpersonal.
I have also completed a Certificate in Person-Centred Experiential Counselling for Depression as part of my role as an NHS counsellor. This training combines a person-centred and emotion-focused approach. The aim of this therapy is to explore any blocked or suppressed emotions which may be outside of our conscious awareness to enable them to come to the surface. It is by exploring our emotions that we can then use them as our internal guide, as our emotions always have something important to tell us. This therapy is designed to alleviate the symptoms of depression, as suppressing our emotions can be a contributing factor to our experience of depression.
empty of its furniture, still treat each guest honourably. He may be clearing you out for some new delight.The dark thought, the shame, the malice, meet them at the door laughing, and invite them in. Be grateful for whoever comes, because each has been sent as a guide from beyond. - The Guest House by Rumi
What is my work experience?
I have spent the last 7 years working as a counsellor in an NHS hospital setting. I have also worked as a counsellor at an aftercare service for people in recovery from drug and alcohol addiction for approximately 2 years as well as working in private practice.
I work with individual adults on both a short-term and long-term basis. As an NHS counsellor and a private practitioner, I have worked with a broad range of difficulties. These include amongst others, depression and anxiety, codependency and relationship difficulties, work-related issues including stress and bullying, bereavement and loss, perimenopause difficulties and neurodiversity issues, including autism and ADHD presentations.
Prior to the commencement of my training as a counsellor and psychotherapist, I worked as a solicitor in the criminal justice system.
I am an accredited member of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy and abide by their Ethical Framework. I hold public liability and professional indemnity insurance.
I charge £65 per session (for 50 minutes).
