Sophie Sorensen Registered Member BACP
Sometimes it’s hard to keep up with the challenges we face.
I have experience in working with clients dealing with a wide range of issues including addiction, trauma, anxiety, depression, bereavement, relationships and questions around identity.
Asking for help can be incredibly hard. It's easy to say "I'm fine" when often, quite the opposite is true. In our first session we can discuss how I can help you and what you want to get out of therapy.
My work as a practitioner, is informed by an Integrative approach. This means I work at the affective, behavioral, cognitive, and physiological levels of functioning.
I am available for short term (min 6-12 sessions) or open ended work.
Counselling is not a cure, yet I believe that the work that we do together can be potentially life changing.
I am registered member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP) and abide by their code of ethics.
I am in the process of completing an MA in Integrative Counselling & Psychotherapy to be delivered in December 2017.

Fear, anxiety and hopelessness surrounding our physical, mental and emotional health affects all areas of our present lives. Talking helps. The therapeutic relationship is different to the relationships we have outside the therapy room. I am here to listen to you. Being seen and heard and having your words reflected back can be useful in learning how to communicate better with the people in your life, be it family, friends or work colleagues.
Finding the right counsellor/therapist is key.
As an integrative a practitioner, I use a range of different therapeutic approaches to best fit your needs.
