Sacha van Eeten Counselling, MA, RCC

Struggling to move forward?

Clinical Counselling can provide the safety & support you need to live the life you prefer.

Wondering how to untangle yourself from feeling stuck and repeating old patterns of reacting? Most of us can relate to that sense of not knowing how to move forward from the past. As a Registered Clinical Counsellor with over 20 years of experience in the field of Mental Health, I can support you with increasing your awareness about the things getting in your way and together we’ll develop some strategies to support the changes you’re hoping to make.

I work from an attachment and client centered approach which means our work together will incorporate a range of therapeutic interventions based on what resonates for each client. My clinical training includes Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Ego States Work, Dialectical Behaviour Therapy, EMDR, Mindfulness, Neurobiology and Sensorimotor Psychotherapy for Trauma and Attachment. Based on client needs, our work together will include a blend of modalities in response to your specific treatment goals. I see counselling as a collaborative process and relationship and therefore welcome your feedback.

The counselling relationship needs to be built upon safety and compassion in order to engage a process of change and reflection so this will be my primary goal initially. My hope is to support you in making sense of your lived experience and begin to untangle yourself from problematic thoughts, behaviors and ways of coping that no longer serve you. I can help with the following areas of concern:

  • PTSD/complex trauma/childhood abuse
  • substance misuse
  • complex grief & loss
  • mood disorders
  • postpartum anxiety/depression
  • life transitions and change
  • relationship concerns ( open/closed, anywhere along an ethical non-monogamy continuum)
  • sexuality and gender identity
  • compassion fatigue/secondary traumatic stress related to working in healthcare, public safety and social services
Together we’ll work on increasing your insight, resiliency and coping, with the aim of reducing your distress.
