Sophie Christie MBACP
I am Cognitive Behavioural Therapist (CBT) experienced in working with both adults and young people.
I am experienced in working with adults and adolescents suffering from a range of problems.
I believe that each life is a unique journey and that we all have the ability to both trap ourselves, and free ourselves. Not all journeys are easy, and not all friends and family can offer the support we need. It can be incredibly beneficial to talk things through to an honest and non-judgemental ear. I may not have your map, but I believe working together and collaboratively I can help you to draw your own.
How I Work
I am both am a CBT practitioner and but can also work intergretively.
I am experienced in working with a wide range of life issues including depression, anxiety, social anxiety, self-harm, abuse, bereavement, relationship and work related issues and panic.
I offer CBT which is goal orientated work. It is collaborative work looking at the link between feelings, thoughts and behaviours. Often by exploring these changes can take place. CBT is suitable for many kinds of problems from anxiety and depression, to phobias and relationships and can work espescially well with young people.
I am a registered member of the BACP (Bristish Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) and abide by their Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling & Psychotherapy.

I am able to offer short term work focussed on exam anxiety for adolescents - there is huge pressure on young people today and a few sessions can help challenge this pressure and the thoughts surrounding exams and be very beneficial.
