About me and my therapy practice
Hi, I’m Sophie, an Integrative Counsellor and Psychotherapist offering private sessions via Zoom or telephone.
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 knowledge and tools 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. As well as working privately, I also have experience providing counselling for clients at The Priory Hospital, Talking Treatment, and Headstrong Counselling.
I hold a Master's Degree in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy and have worked with a variety of people from different walks of life. I have experience working with a wide-range of issues including: Anxiety, Depression, Low self-esteem, Low confidence, Perfectionism, Stress management, Grief & loss, Shame, Overwhelm, Loneliness, Abuse, Identity issues, Imposter syndrome, Relationship issues, Managing change, Managing conflict, Burnout, Life transitions, PTSD, Women’s issues, and Work-related issues.
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.
I am currently working online, via Zoom or phone. I offer both long-term and short-term therapy, depending on your needs. Sessions last 50-minutes and will be arranged for a time that suits you.
You can expect to find a collaborative and proactive partnership, someone who will explore and make sense of the problems you are struggling with.
'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
'After almost exactly one year of working with Sophie, the shift in my sense of self feels equally as subtle as it does momentous. We have slowly painted colour back into the minutiae of everyday life, focussing on being present and fulfilled, as well as building on my own confidence to handle the normal highs and lows of adulthood. Thank you for everything Sophie.' KN
'I've worked with Sophie for the past year to work through some old rubbish that was affecting my current relationship and career. We used a range of techniques rather than adhering to a single approach, depending on what was required. I've found Sophie approachable but didn't shy away from asking difficult questions. She recalled a lot of detail and was able to refer to it during our sessions - it made the conversations feel really organic and specific, rather than generic. In future, if I need to speak to someone, I will reach out to Sophie again.' CH
My first session
Seeking support can feel daunting, so I take great care in the initial session to explain the counselling process and get to know you, exploring your expectations and needs, and ensuring that you feel I am the right person to help you.
I also offer a free 15-minute telephone consultation. Research shows that the relationship between therapist and client is integral to the healing process, so this call is really important to ensure you feel comfortable talking to me. We will use this time to discuss your current challenges, what your therapeutic goals might look like, and give you the opportunity to ask me any questions you might have.
'Sophie has been extremely helpful through my healing process, and journey towards growth and acceptance. Sophie is a great listener and never failed to make me feel safe and understood. She also always ensured that the space we shared during therapy was a judgement free zone where I could discuss my experiences without any fear. Sophie was exceptional and I’m really grateful for the time we shared!' SVM
'I had a really positive experience attending sessions with Sophie. I was able to discuss and come to terms with some difficult events from my past. More widely Sophie helped me develop a more holistic, resilient,and caring mindset to towards myself and any daily stressors I may face.' AV
