Sarah Van Gogh MBACP (Accred) BA Hons

I have been a counsellor since 1999, and gained BACP-accreditation in 2001. I have experience of working with clients from varied backgrounds on a wide range of issues, for long and short term contracts.
As well as having a private practice, I am a tutor on a counselling diploma course at the Revision Centre for Counselling & Psychotherapy in North London, and I work as a counsellor for the charity 'Survivors UK' which supports men who have experienced sexual violation.
Before training as a counsellor, I worked for ten years in the fields of community health and theatre-in-education, and before this, gained a degree in English from Cambridge University.
In my work I offer an approach that gives clients a contained, confidential space to look back at their past experiences, explore their current situation, and look ahead to their future. My therapeutic approach is one that takes a holistic view of an individual, and includes the body, the mind, the emotions, and what could be called the soulful or creative element to life.
I currently work with individuals over the age of 18, and do not offer sessions for those under 18, couples or families.
