Sonia Vohra BA (Hons) MBACP Registered (Accred)
My counselling approach is about building a safe, trusting and accepting relationship with you. I offer a warm and non-judgmental space allowing you to share whatever is troubling you. I believe people are born with the ability to be in rewarding contact with other human beings. However, at times this may feel difficult and feelings of anxiety, anger, low self-esteem or a disconnection from others may cause you to feel stuck in unhelpful patterns and beliefs about yourself.
We will start by setting goals for therapy. Together, in a safe environment, we will explore and uncover how some conscious as well as unconscious beliefs and patterns are still active and affecting you today. Through exploration and understanding of your past, cultural beliefs and upbringing and through examining your present, you will gain greater self-awareness and understanding of how and why you feel the way you do.
Counselling will help you to identify your strengths and empower you to find new ways forward. It will lead to a more fulfilling life involving personal growth and change. I will support you to find new and more creative ways to resolve any problems that you are facing. Whatever your route to counselling, we can work collaboratively to resolve these issues and bring about a new and better you!
Training, qualifications & experience
As a professionally accredited, qualified and experienced Integrative-relational counsellor (http://relational-integrative-psychotherapy.uk/chapters/what-is-relational-integrative-psychotherapy/), my approach is to draw on a range of different theories to support the way I work. These are adapted and integrated to suit each person's individual needs.
I run my private practice in the South Kensington and Thames Ditton areas. In addition to this, I work in a school offering supervision and support to parents and staff. Previously, I worked in a counselling centre for women offering long term therapy and in an NHS GP practice. I offer both short-term and longer-term therapy and have experience in dealing with a wide range of issues.
