Sophie is experienced in working with all ages adults, children and adolescents. Sophie is a member of the NCH, UKCHO and the NHS Trusts Association (NHSTA 6772). She is properly supervised, insured, and CRB checked.

There were plans for the government to bring in statutory regulation for psychotherapists in the UK so that you could be assured that the therapist that you choose is properly qualified and able to offer you the best possible service, however the government has decided not to make regulation of psychotherapy a statutory requirement, so how do you make sure that the therapist you choose is well qualified?. Sophie has completed 4 years of training at MA level and continues in her professional development learning new techniques and keeping up to date with old ones on a regular basis.
