About me and my therapy practice
My name is Sofia and I am a psycotherapeutic counsellor and therapist in private practice located in Chichester, five minutes' drive from the city center. I provide long and short term face-to-face counselling and therapy.
What does counselling and psychothetapy entail?
The work done through counselling and psychotherapy aims to develop emotional health in the person - that includes setting healthier targets in life and also working with stereotypes and persistent parts of your inner self that hinder you. It allows you to voice your inner pain and heal it.
It helps to recognise emotions in yourself, and in others, to alleviate anxiety and cope with stress. For some, that would be the very first time in their lives that they have allowed themselves to be real, without pretence.
Being in therapy means entering unfamiliar territory. Because even if you have been in therapy before, the experience will have been different. And it will be different with every new therapist and at any other point in your life. Every time you will get something new from it. My aim as a therapist is to help you to recognise a burden that you carry and make it lighter, and in future to drop some of that burden and develop the ability to "travel light".
Counselling and psychotherapy are unique experiences which equip you with "tools" that you carry within yourself and you can use independently, long after you've finished your course of therapy. You learn to love, respect and nurture yourself. You become more harmoniously attuned to others and able to build and maintain healthier, stronger relationships.
Email me or call me for a free brief initial consultation and we'll set up our first session.
I also provide online and telephone counselling.
