About me

I am an experienced counsellor and psychotherapist and I practise in Dulwich, SE21.  Here I offer my clients a safe, confidential and non-judgemental space in which we can think together about about the difficulties you might be experiencing and find the answers that will help you develop your own unique potential.

I work from a psychodynamic and psychoanalytic perspective. This approach aims to help you explore and understand the less obvious, unconscious aspects of your thoughts, feelings and behaviour.  Often, problems in the present may be related to experiences earlier in our lives. Understanding this can help you clarify your feelings and decide the best way forward.

I provide regular long term therapy/counselling and I also offer time-limited counselling. To arrange an initial consultation or to discuss any questions or concerns you may have, please contact me by telephone on 07788 108 198 or by email at  sonya@se21.fsnet.co.uk.  All enquiries are strictly confidential.  I offer appointments from Tuesday - Friday including early morning and evenings.  Sessions can be flexible if necessary to fit in with your other commitments. If you would like to know more about me please go to my website sonyataylorcounselling.co.uk

Training, qualifications & experience

I completed my professional training at WPF Therapy in London and hold their Advanced Diploma in Pyschodynamic Counselling and a Postgraduate Diploma in Psychodynamic Studies from the University of Roehampton.  This is a four year training which includes substantial clinical experience and personal psychoanalytic therapy as well as theoretical and academic attainment.

I am a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP) and a professional member of the Foundation for Psychotherapy and Counselling (FPC). As such, I adhere to their code of ethics. I am also registered with the British Psychoanalytic Council (BPC).

In addition to my private practice I work as a Psychotherapist in a London Prison. I have clinical experience in various mental health settings, having worked as a counsellor at WPF therapy and as a psychotherapist  in the NHS.

Prior to training as a therapist, I worked for 20 years as a family lawyer.

Member organisations


British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
