When asked what her approach to therapy was Sandra said “Always present in the moment as a Therapist, respecting the space held and to talk about that which is often unspeakable or difficult to talk about and often shrouded in secrecy and respecting that, respecting the client’s wants and needs and capacity. That therapy is informed and valued theory in action and effective in the healing/helping process. That everyone’s experience is valid no matter how hard people try to take that away from you or have another version of the story. You deserve to be heard and to heal”.
