Sonya Price, FdSc in Counselling and Psychotherapy, MBACP
Hello I can now offer you face to face counselling following the recent government guidelines that are actively in place for the safety of myself and my clients.
My name is Sonya Price and am a qualified Counsellor and Psychotherapist. I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and specialise in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). I use my CBT approach to adapt it to my clients needs with regards to the individuals presenting issue. Sometimes our life experiences can often impact our own mental health and well-being and may leave us feeling anxious and intense. CBT works with feelings and emotions in situations that can often affect our behaviour. As your therapist we can work together to develop a therapeutic and confidential relationship in a safe environment. The aim of the therapy sessions is to work collaboratively with an agenda to set a goal and develop some coping strategies which will enable you to move forward with your future. If you feel this therapy is for you, reach out and get in touch today.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have gained 25 years of experience in the care profession working with Neurological disorders, Dementia and End of Life care. I have supported individuals and families during these difficult times. I completed my Foundation Degree in Counselling and Psychotherapy specialising in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) in August 2019. I studied Health and Social care level 3 in 2005 and then became a Care Practitioner level 5. This is what inspired me to become a counsellor and psychotherapist.
I am currently volunteering at Myton Hospice working with families and their loved ones going through Loss and Bereavement which can be a traumatic time for everyone. Exploring these emotions and feelings in your own time helps with the process of bereavement which then enables you to have an understanding of what you are experiencing.
I also deliver counselling with Age UK for individuals at local GP surgeries in Leamington spa. I take referrals and work with mental health and well-being with presenting issues such as Anxiety, Depression, PTSD, Trauma, Social Anxiety, Cultural Differences, Alcohol and Drug Abuse.
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.
