Sonia Antoniazzi - Psychotherapist inc Autism, LD, & LGBTQ+
>> COVID 19 - I work in line with the latest guidelines to ensure my clients and I are safe. Currently, all my therapy and supervision sessions have moved online and will continue to be reviewed as necessary <<
Therapy should be available to everyone, and I aim to meet each of my clients' unique needs. I work in a wide range of creative ways, as well as 'traditional' talking therapy.
I have supported people who thought that they would never find a therapist to help them for all sorts of reasons including their sexuality or their disability - even not being able to talk was not a barrier...
I can help you if you are feeling anxious, sad or depressed. These are often feelings that have their roots in identity or relationship problems, feelings of low self-worth or self-disgust and shame. I can hold what feels like really difficult stuff in a warm, helpful, confidential way - and I doubt you could truly shock me.
Whether you are seeking solace or have run out of places to hide, together we can create a space where you find what you need so that you can be the best version of a whole you.
