Sarah Van Gogh

Sarah Van Gogh has worked as a therapist in private practice for over 25 years and is also an experienced supervisor and trainer. She is on the training staff at the Re.Vision Centre for Integrative Transpersonal Counselling & Psychotherapy in North London.

Before she trained as a therapist she studied English literature, and then worked as an actor, and in community health outreach and adult education.

Sarah worked for seven years as a therapist and trainer for Survivors UK, a London-based charity that provides support to men who have experienced sexual violation. She is the author of “Helping Male Survivors of Sexual Violation to Recover” (Jessica Kingsley, 2018), described by Dr Graham Music as a work that ‘skillfully navigates neurobiology, trauma and dissociation, alongside both classic and innovative therapeutic approaches.’

She has written about the vital connection between the expressive arts and therapy for a number of journals. She is also the co-editor and a contributor to “Transformation in Troubled Times. ReVision’s Soulful Approach to Therapeutic Work (TransPersonal Press, 2018).

She wrote a regular column in the BACP Private Practice Journal for many years on a wide range of topics that affect the therapy profession. She has spoken at numerous conferences and presented CPD events on: working with male survivors; making a place for creativity and the imagination in therapy; and the importance of understanding Eros in the consulting space.
