Dr Sophie Dilley, CPsychol
I am a qualified and experienced Chartered Counselling Psychologist. I work with individuals (18 and older), and couples across the lifespan. I am able to offer both short and longer term therapy. I am currently offering online sessions over Zoom, and have been using this in my clinical practice effectively.
I use an integrative approach that focuses on developing a strong therapeutic relationship and work relationally with the issues you may bring. Creating a space for empathy, trust, and congruence are important parts of this process, and central to how I work as a psychologist.
I am also a Psychosexual Therapist in training at Tavistock Relationships, working with both individuals and couples. There are many reasons why an individual or a couple seeks therapy, and I aim to provide a safe and non-judgemental space to explore the difficulties you and your partner may be experiencing.
Training, qualifications & experience
I hold a doctoral degree in Psychotherapeutic and Counselling Psychology from the University of Surrey. I also have a Masters in Psychology from the University of Westminster. I engage in ongoing training and learning to be able to provide the most up to date and appropriate psychological interventions. I am also a Psychosexual Therapist in training at Tavistock Relationships, working with both individuals and couples.
The benefit of my training and experience means I am able to provide an effective, evidence-based therapy that is tailored to meet your psychological needs.
I use an integrative approach that draws on a number of therapeutic modalities to develop a collaborative and holistic understanding of human distress.
In addition to my private practice, I work as a Senior Counselling Psychologist in the NHS working with adults experiencing severe and enduring mental health difficulties. I also provide clinical supervision.
Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
Health and Care Professions Council
The HCPC are an independent, UK-wide health regulator. They set standards of professional training, performance and conduct for 16 professions.
They keep a register of health professionals who meet their standards, and they take action if registered health professionals fall below those standards. They were created by a piece of legislation called the Health Professions Order 2001.
Registration means that a health professional meets national standards for their professional training, performance and conduct.
