About me

Psychotherapy - Online or in person.

Hi, I'm Sophie, I have 11 years experience since I began my Masters training in 2009. I have been working psycho-therapeutically with adults, young people and children in public, charity and private sector organisations. My experience extends broadly to include people of all abilities and ages.

My practice is Integrative which means using more than one psychotherapeutic approach: I offer a space to explore your feelings and worries to support you.

Working together.

Using various techniques to support you to better understand yourself. I can  help you untangle your worries and realise your potential, working towards improving your self-awareness and understanding.

I value self-awareness recognising the important role it plays in our lives and the need to nurture it.  I strongly believe that we carry our answers: that you are the expert of yourself.

What to expect when we meet.

I aim to offer a safe confidential space where we can meet on video call or in person, keeping to the recommended social distancing.

I will support you to feel comfortable. I will listen to you and have no expectations. We will work together at your pace. I am versatile in my practice to try and meet your individual needs.

It is normal when ‘in therapy’ to meet once a week for one hour, however, this is not mandatory, we can meet more or less often, the choice is yours.

Please feel free to ask me questions and get in touch for an initial free 30 minute meeting.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
