Sasa Stojovic is a UKCP accredited psychotherapist (Existential Analytic) working from a psychoanalytic and existential perspective.

Working in private practice in Wimpole Street, Sasa generally provides open-ended therapy.
Sasa works with clients experiencing variations of suffering – from identifiable complaints to more diffuse and unknown confusions and conflicts. Sasa works together with the client to provide a therapeutic space that facilitates the client’s ability to explore their unresolved, deep rooted and primary core issues that have contributed to the manifestation of their current symptoms.
Centering on the experience of the client is crucial and consideration is given to the client’s psychological, psychosexual, historical and social contexts as well as the place they occupy in relation to the world.

Sasa believes that therapy provides a place for a therapeutic encounter where individuals who feel displaced, alienated and frightened can begin to raise questions about the neglected and forgotten aspects in their lives.
Individuals often find themselves repeating and reexperiencing distressing relational dynamics or patterns of living and Psychoanalytic work can enable the client to be clearer about the unknown/unthought forces moving through them that often leads to this compulsion to repeat. Therefore, value is placed in exploring the extent to which underlying issues are shaped or impacted by the past and/or founding past relationships.

Individuals increasingly find themselves faced with narrow cultural notions and prescriptions to “be happy” and to therefore evacuate their pain which can work to undermine the human experience of ambivalence, anxiety, frustration, suffering and disappointment. In this way, both Existentialism and Psychoanalysis facilitate an examination of unescapable aspects of existence, raising questions about how one relates to them -which in turn can open up possibilities for the enhancement of living.

Having been the associate editor at the European Journal for Counselling and Psychotherapy, Sasa is actively interested in continental philosophy, the history of psychoanalysis, research and developments in practice. With a background in the arts, Sasa understands the importance of living creatively, encountering the ambiguity, contradictions, ambivalence and beauty of life. In the past, Sasa worked at a bereavement charity providing emotional support to the bereaved. Sasa is currently working towards her PhD in Counselling and Psychotherapy with a special interest in the unspeakable.
