About me

My name is Jeremy and I offer welcoming therapy in a professional and highly experienced way. My aim is to help you develop a deeper understanding of the challenges you are experiencing and gain insight into ways of managing. I am trained as an Integrative Psychotherapist drawing on person centred and psychodynamic therapy. In addition, I am an Exposure Narrative Therapist (NET). This is an intensive short term invention for Traumatic Stress Disorders.

Looking for the right therapist can be overwhelming. Scrolling through different profiles takes time and energy. This is why my profile breaks down my services in three ways: why do therapy, what's my therapy about and my experience. I hope this helps you decide if I'm right for you, but if you still have questions check out my website or send me a message. 

Why do therapy?

People seek therapy for all sorts of reasons. You may have specific issues you'd like to want to focus on, such as past traumas, issues with identity or relationships, or alternatively, you may want space to explore feelings and emotions you're experiencing.

It is rare we allow ourselves time in the week to understand our feelings, past experiences or pain. It is my hope that by committing this time, you'll gain a deeper understanding of your experiences and what they mean for your life today. 

What is my therapy about?

My therapy is about providing an environment for you to express your feelings in a safe and non-judgmental space while seeking clarity and insight into yourself and the world around you.​ I offer a mix of person centred therapy and psychodynamic therapy. I also use psycho-education and believe it can be a useful tool for understanding your emotions and is something I offer in order to deepen our therapeutic work. In addition to this, I am training in Narrative Exposure Therapy, a short term, focused therapy for the treatment of traumatic stress disorders. This therapy is an evidence based, culturally inclusive cognitive therapy for those who have survived multiple traumas. 

If you'd like to know more about my therapy or find out about NET, go to my website, where you can read my blog, access free support materials and hear more about my work: www.jeremysachs.com.

I am an accredited member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and adhere to their ethical framework and code of conduct. I am a member of the Radical Therapist Network, a membership organisation for therapists dedicated to intersectional, trauma-informed and anti-oppressive learning and therapeutic practice. 

My experience 

​I have extensive experience working in the field of mental health, historically I have created and run group therapy at SurvivorsUK, a charity supporting men, boys, Trans & non binary people who have survived sexual abuse or violence. Sexual abuse is an area of expertise I specialise in and work with female, male, trans and non-binary survivors. I held an honorary contract working at The NHS Maudsley Psychiatric Hospital where I work with patients one to one with a variety of mental health disorders and issues.

In addition, I have worked in health and mental health for years, working with different groups and services providing support for HIV, gender violence, LGBTQIA, and long term health conditions.
 

Training, qualifications & experience

My experience

I have extensive history working with survivors of trauma, the LGBTQ+ community, young people and students, longterm or chronic illnesses, sex and sexuality. I take an intersectional approach to my work, meaning we would consider all aspects of your experience and identity in the therapy, rather than focusing on one difficulty. This is because I believe people are much more than what they have experienced or the challenges they face.

The majority of my work is online, with some spaces in-person, drop me an email for more info about appointments.

Member organisations

BACP
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
