About me

Hello, I am pleased that you are visiting my website. My name is Sophie Hobbs and I am an accredited Psychotherapist with a Masters Degree in Integrative Psychotherapy issued by the University of Birmingham. This enables me to address your unresolved problems and current difficulties and offer you therapy in a relaxed and well informed way.

In our first Introductory Session we will be able to discuss your ongoing mental health and emotional current troubles on a personal basis. At this time we will be better able to address your needs and the opportunity for further healing Therapy. This may be with an agreed six to twelve week contract or with a more relaxed and open-ended approach.

As an Integrative Psychotherapist, I am trained in Cognitive, Behavioural, Person-Centred (Humanistic), Psychodynamic, Psychoanalytic, Gestalt, Transactional Analytic and Developmental modalities. Enabling me to work with clients of sixteen years of age and above.

I am also able to call upon a variety of Psychotherapy practices and theories, meaning that as my client you will receive an over arching branch of therapy. This will result in a refined meeting of your current and future needs with goals aiming for a more meaningful, resolved and insightful way of life.

If further Psychotherapy is decided upon, this will be followed by a personalized treatment approach which will be designed to meet your individual requirements and provide you with help and support on the road to recovery. This will include any subject areas which are unresolved or that you concerned about.

As a Psychotherapist, I treat each individual as a unique person which will include your own feelings, thoughts, expectations and wishes for a better future. As your Therapist, my aim is to act as a guide and mentor to help and support you to achieve a more balanced, stable and contented way of life.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am an Integrative Psychotherapist M.A (U.K.C.P. & M.B.A.C.P.) with twenty years of experience. I have worked with a wide diversity of mental health problems including relational, personal and work related difficulties, including stress in these areas.

I initially worked within the NHS, at a Psychotherapy Centre in the north west for several years. During these years I also worked for a local GP practice at the University of Lancaster, where I worked with students as well as patients from the general public.

My other experiences have included voluntary work for the North Lancashire Counselling Service. I have also been a volunteer for CAMHS in another area of the country and have worked as a Community Youth Mentor. During the past twenty years, I have successfully practiced within a group of other Psychotherapists and have also facilitated Group Psychoanalytic Therapy whilst continuing to work primarily in Psychotherapy on a one to one basis.

My therapy room is located a few minutes from the centre of Lancaster and the Railway Station. Also my hours are flexible from 9:00 am to 8:00 pm, weekdays and half day Saturday. I understand that each person has life priorities and so aim to be as flexible and understanding as possible when arranging suitable times for a session.
