About me

Hello, my name is Sophie and I am a qualified Counsellor working with individuals aged 18 or over, from a calm and relaxing space in Central Cheltenham.  

It is not easy to make the decision to come to counselling and it takes courage to seek the help that you feel you might need.  

There are many reasons that someone might seek out counselling:  

Perhaps you are feeling stuck, finding it hard to make a change? Maybe you are feeling anxious, depressed or in a low mood that feels hard to shift? Perhaps there is something in your past which is having an impact on how you feel now in your life?

Whatever your reasons for choosing therapy, I am able to offer a confidential, warm, safe space in which to explore thoughts, feelings and behaviours. It is important that you feel safe and supported and that we can create a secure relationship where you feel safe to acknowledge your true feelings and understand more about yourself.

It can be very powerful to be truly heard and accepted for who you really are, without judgement.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a CPCAB L4 Diploma (2018) in Therapeutic Counselling and am trained to work integratively, drawing on different models of counselling. 

I work with a variety of clients including those with anxiety, depression, bereavement, low self-esteem and relationship difficulties.  

Since 2017 I have been a counsellor for a charity in Gloucestershire working with a range of clients including those in a caring role and those who have suffered trauma.

I am a registered member of the British Association For Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and abide by their code of ethics.

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.

Further information

If you would like to contact me, please email or phone me leaving your contact details. (Please check spam filters if you don’t hear anything). I will get back to you as soon as I am able to and we can discuss your needs.

Then if you would like to continue, we can look at booking an assessment session. This will be a chance for us to meet, for you to discuss what you are hoping to gain from counselling and it will give you an idea of whether you feel that I am the right therapist for you. It is important that you feel comfortable with your counsellor.
