Dr Sandra Rasqui
I have worked in the field of mental health for over a decade, offering a range of therapy services, tailored to meet the individual needs of clients, including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Psychotherapy, and Integrative Counselling. I have been privileged to work with people of all ages and from all walks of life, experiencing a range of different mental health issues. I am passionate about providing support for those that require it, basing my approach on Humanism and optimism – the idea that everyone has the potential to change and grow, take ownership of their own journey through life and celebrating individual difference and diversity.
My training has enabled me to develop skills and expertise in both CBT (challenging negative thoughts and understanding how thoughts can affect feelings and behaviours) and Psychotherapy (understanding how past experiences and unconscious processes can impact on an individual’s experience of the present). As an integrative practitioner, I practice flexible working, drawing on the most useful elements of various therapy models to best meet an individual’s unique needs. I believe therapy provides the opportunity for people to explore both their present difficulties as well as develop hope for the future in a safe space; I firmly believe that it is the right of every human being to be understood, to reflect on their life and experiences, to gain an insight into what their values and goals are, and to establish a plan for achieving these. I provide a non-judgemental, empathic means of exploring your way of relating to yourself and others within a warm and safe therapeutic relationship.
