About me

***********************COVID-19 Coronavirus NEWS*****************************

I have the facility to provide sessions via telephone or via any one of multiple video conferencing platforms.  Skype, Zoom, Facetime or WhatsApp Video. For the short term I am able to accept payment via Paypal or via direct bank transfer.


My name is Sonia Herbert, I am a registered Psychotherapist, Counsellor and Counselling Trainer and supervisor.

I am a skilled and experienced therapist with over 14 years experience in practicing therapy and training of trainee Counsellors to undergraduate level. I have worked in NHS settings; hospital and a GP practice, within a children’s nursery, in bereavement, education and colleges.

I am an integrative psychotherapist; this means that I integrate elements from different schools of psychotherapy in order to respond effectively and appropriately to the person as a whole. I believe theoretically there is no one truth, different people need different approaches and interventions at differing times. I have a hopeful view of human beings and believe that we are influenced by external forces as well as our unconscious.

I work either short term or open ended; a therapy session is 50 minutes and we will usually meet weekly.

When we first meet we will look at confidentiality, practical issues and any questions you may have.

I also have a Diploma in Counselling Supervision.
As a trainer of counsellors I have a good insight into what the expectations are from the college/university, and from yourself, with regards to personal therapy and supervision which are required. Please visit my website to find out more...
