About me

Hello I'm Sophie. I am a fully qualified and registered MBACP counsellor. As well as my private practice, I also work within the NHS as a youth counsellor and in a sixth form college as school counsellor. In addition to this work, I counsel those dealing with alcohol and addiction issues within a charitable organisation; this work also enables me to also support family members and friends whose lives are impacted by a loved one’s behaviour.

My work has given me the opportunity to work with a wide range of unique individuals and an enormous variety of issues including; Anxiety, depression, relationship issues, self-harm, suicidal ideation, low self-esteem, depression, health-related issues, terminal illness, bereavement and loss, issues of identity, sexuality issues, gender issues, abuse, eating disorders, OCD, substance misuse and addiction. Within these areas, I’ve worked extensively with teenagers and adults of all ages. I have also had the privilege of supporting clients as they find their way through life changing events.

As a person centred, existential therapist I am non-directive and work collaboratively. I offer a respectful and non-judgemental space where clients can explore their issues and concerns working at a pace that suits their needs.

Member organisations


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.
