Sophie Bice BA (Hons) Counselling, BACP Registered Member
The Lodge House
Hello, my name is Sophie and I am here to listen, if you feel you want to talk. I am committed to providing a safe, confidential and non-judgemental environment, where we can work through your concerns together and focus on what is important to you. I am an experienced, friendly, professional counsellor and psychotherapist offering appointments at both The Eaves in Godalming and at my home in Cranleigh, Surrey.
By talking together, we can unravel what is troubling you to gain deeper understanding of the place you find yourself in, building your awareness and self-acceptance in order to bring about positive change in your life.
Life can be challenging and hard to make sense of at times. Most of us will at some point experience anxiety and emotional distress in either our personal or professional lives .My work encompasses both work and personal related issues, including: relationship difficulties, self-esteem, self-confidence, sexuality, anger, long-term illness, loss, bereavement, anxiety and depression,
Sometimes we are able to create our own methods of coping or work things through by talking to family and friends, but at other times they are just too close to be able to help, we may feel overwhelmed and struggle to cope with our experiences alone. At times like this counselling offers you the opportunity for a dedicated space and time to talk openly about whatever is concerning you, and share your most difficult feelings with someone who can help you make sense of them and find a way forward.
I am a humansitic counsellor working with both adults and adolescents on either an open-ended or short-term basis (up to 12 sessions) according to what is best suited for your needs.I offer a safe, respectful and confidential space where you can talk of whatever is troubling you, without fear of judgement.
I have a particular interest in working with clients experiencing high levels of anxiety or stress, relationship issues, low confidence and self-esteem and bereavement.
I am also particularly passionate about working with adolescents who increasingly experience high levels of pressure, stress and anxiety due to the experiences they encounter.
I offer a free 30 minute face to face meeting so you can see if you think counselling is right for you.

HOW I WORK
I am a Humanistic Counsellor which means I work with what is happening in the 'Here and Now' of our lives. Our past experiences and relationships are still very much relevant but are explored in terms of how they impact us in the present.
Whilst the reasons people come to counselling can be similar, each individual’s experience is unique. My approach and philosophy to working is based upon the Humanistic values of counselling and psychotherapy. My emphasis is on an integrative framework of supporting theories, drawing flexibly from Person-Centred Therapy, Gestalt, and Existential philosophy, using interventions which focus on raising a deeper awareness and understanding of our feelings and behaviours, so we can bring about positive change towards a more fulfilling existence.
