About me

Hello, I’m Sophia. I offer counselling & psychotherapy and I would like to help you to feel better- whatever that means to you.

Perhaps you want to relieve depression or anxiety? To heal from trauma? To work through difficulties in relationships or at work? Or maybe you just want to feel more vitality, more connected to yourself and to live life more fully.

I am passionate about providing professional & effective therapy. I offer a non-judgmental and safe space where you can be yourself as we explore what is causing you suffering or holding you back.

My training in Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy (AEDP) and other therapy approaches, allows me to tailor each session to best support your unique needs. I am warm and compassionate, but I won’t just sit back and listen. I'll be actively engaged with you; working hard to help you to access your inner resources and restore your well being.

Brain science shows us that the capacity to heal and grow is wired into us, waiting to be tapped into and that sharing our difficult thoughts & feelings with an experienced therapist we trust, can bring about lasting change. -What great news-

Presently my practice is entirely online using Zoom video conferencing software. If you're concerned that video sessions won't feel right to you, then I would suggest trying a free 20 minute video consultation to see how it feels.
My clients have found it to be as effective as face to face sessions.

I welcome emails with any questions you may have or you can book a free 20 minute phone or video consultation.

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
