Meet the Counsellor : Empathic Counselling
Picture of the counsellor

My name is Sasha Brittain, and I am an ACA registered counsellor and the director of Empathic Counselling. As women, we often put the needs of others before our own. I have lived experience in many of the areas I support women with, and I am passionate about holding space for women to prioritise their own needs. I look forward to supporting you to improve your mental health, emotional wellbeing and relationships.
