Davina Sacks, MA, MBACP
I'm very pleased to be able to continue to support my clients during this time by moving to online video sessions. Video calling may be an unusual experience for some, but it could be that now, more than ever, is the time to reach out and ask for help and stay connected in the ways that we can.
Something that interests me most about working as a therapist is connecting with those real, human vulnerabilities that are so often looked past in our usual lives for seeming awkward or out of place. I really would like to know more about those feelings that you hold back or minimise. I’d like to share them with you – the good, the bad and the ugly. I want to help you understand why you feel the way you do and explore how your view of yourself and of the world could evolve a little differently.
I bring a variety of experience within the mental health field, and a passion for learning different psychotherapeutic techniques and styles, of which you can find out more on my website. At the foundation of my work lies my genuine curiosity to unravel and understand, compassion for your experiences, and authenticity with honesty towards the process, bringing a humanness to my work.
My aim for any session is to help you bring some clarity and order to your experiences that can feel chaotic or confusing. I hope you leave the room feeling some relief, and that you’re not alone in the swamp of emotions you may be feeling.
It can be really difficult finding a therapist who suits your way of thinking and who you feel comfortable with, especially after scrolling through all these directories of therapists saying similar things.
You’re welcome to get in touch with any further questions by calling or texting me on 07902498547, by email at email@example.com, or using the contact form on my website.
