About me and my therapy practice
My name is Sophia and I am a qualified Psychotherapeutic Counsellor, Psychological Practitioner (MSc Psychology at Essex University), CBT (cognitive behavioural therapy) practitioner, Hypnotherapist, trained Life Coach . From my years of education and experience, I believe that I can bring significant benefits to clients through my assertive and empathetic approach to each individual.
Patients from Macmillan Cancer Research, Aviva and Bupa have been previous and current referrals that have strengthened my psychodynamic perspective on my clients. A lot of sessions with me can include person-centred therapy, alongside a working technique of hypnotherapy, CBT and EMDR. These techniques have resulted in life-changing outcomes for my clients. As a compassionate counsellor with a progressive history of working with trauma, OCD, and depression, I have an excellent ability to build therapeutic relationships to facilitate growth.
When in a session with me, clients notice my gentle, cheerful and positive character, which encourages everyone to feel safe in every session. With trust, clients notice my pride in their success, as we explore the obstacles that stop them from getting the most out of life. With utilising my outstanding interpersonal skills and experience in integrated therapeutic techniques, I can connect with any client from any background or identity, to be a helping hand in achieving healthy goals. I am motivated and creative, with a comprehensive ability to accommodate to each clients needs.

My first session
In the first session clients are required to complete PHQ-9/GAD-7 for psychometric analysis. This analysis will be a good starting point to monitor the progress. On 4th session the progress is reviewed to ensure that the client is on correct path with their treatment plan. However, initial session is for building a rapport and connecting with the client, hence safe and welcoming session is provided to clients.
