Sophie Hobbs B.A. (Hons), M.A. Integrative Psychotherapy, UKCP, MBACP

I am an Integrative Psychotherapist and have worked for twenty years with a wide diversity of mental health problems, including life and personal difficulties. I have worked within the NHS and have also provided Group Psychoanalytic Therapy, Couples' Counselling and, primarily, Psychotherapy on a one to one basis.
As an Integrative Psychotherapist, I am able to call upon a diversity of theories and practices meaning that my clients receive an over arching branch of therapy which results in a refined meeting of their current and future needs, leading to a more meaningful life.
My approach to therapy involves an Introductory Session followed by a personalised treatment plan which will involve the client in determining which difficulties and areas of their life they find to be the most problematic. In this situation, therefore, yourself as a client is offered the opportunity to decide upon and influence the therapy you will receive. Throughout your therapy there will be ongoing reviews, both thorough and unique for yourself. I am also able to offer six or twelve weekly session contracts or open ended ones. These will depend upon the needs and requirements of my clients within a non-directive type of therapy. As a psychotherapist, I treat each individual as a unique person which includes their own feelings, thoughts, expectations and wishes for a more rewarding and satisfying future. As a Therapist, I believe that a stable mental health is a necessity when facing the difficult experiences, challenges and obstacles which invariably occur in our everyday lives.
