Sass Boucher MSc BA (Hons) MBACP

Counsellor and Psychotherapist.

I am a qualified Counsellor and Psychotherapist working in Stafford and registered with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).

My experience as a therapist is wonderfully varied, working with clients in areas of their life where they would like to gain a greater understanding of who they are and how they might like to use this understanding to make changes. My work with clients largely explores areas around anxiety, self-esteem, confidence, relationships, issues around domestic and sexual abuse, loss and bereavement.

Research, and writing

My MSc research project, ‘Looking Through a Lens of Terribleness,’ specifically explored the experiences of professionals working with clients who are living with or have lived with domestic abuse and trauma. The study highlighted many valuable ways that we can increase support for practitioners, and this has encouraged me to explore Self-Care, the concept of proactively taking steps to look after ourselves in an attempt to reduce the potential impact of stress, burn out, secondary trauma and fatigue.

I have written for the BACP Workplace Journal, The Law Society, Social Work News, The Counsellors Café and Women in Trade magazine and contributed to ‘SHARE a new model for Social work’, specifically around self-care from both a personal and professional perspective.

SelfCare Psychology Ltd

I am a co-founder and Director of SelfCare Psychology Ltd. We are a start up with a strong social desire to make changes in human services. We are working towards creating an awareness and a cultural shift encouraging those who work with others to take care of themselves and each other.

It is not acceptable that we are losing highly trained experienced practitioners due to ill health, frustration and burnout by not encouraging them to look after themselves and each other.
