About me

Hi, I’m Sophie, an Integrative Counsellor and Psychotherapist based in London. I am currently offering private offering private sessions remotely, via Zoom or telephone. I hold a Master's Degree in Integrative Counselling & Psychotherapy. 

Whether you've been struggling for a while, or if an unexpected life event has hit you hard, taking the time to talk, process, and reflect can help you make sense of how you’re feeling, equipping you with the tools and mechanisms to make changes and move forward.

When working with clients, I do not believe there is a ‘one size fits all’ approach. Having trained and practiced across different therapeutic models and techniques, I am able to facilitate a flexible approach that can be tailored to your individual needs and preferences. I view a warm, holding and collaborative therapeutic relationship as central to our work together, and provide a non-judgemental, engaged space for you to be heard. Together, we will work together to help you gain insight into what might be causing pain or feelings of being stuck, and move towards understanding and fulfilment.

Testimonial

'Sophie has been a real rock for me over the past year and a half. She’s been non-judgemental, kind and supportive and I feel like a different person to when I first started therapy with her. I’m actually really sad that I won’t be speaking to her weekly anymore, but she’s given me the confidence to continue on my own! I will really miss her, but won’t ever forget how much she’s helped me in this next chapter of my life.' CM

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.
