Hello, I’m Sophia. I am a qualified Psychotherapeutic Counsellor, providing a professional therapy service for adults. I have experience supporting clients with a range of issues including: stress and anxiety; self-esteem and self-worth; communication and relationship issues. I also have additional specialist training and considerable experience working with the challenges of grief and loss.
It is a very personal experience working with a counsellor. Creating and maintaining an open, supportive and friendly relationship with you, free of any judgement, is my first working priority. It is this positive relationship that will enable us to work well together, so you can experience real benefits within your timescales. Exploring your goals for counselling early on is important to help ensure the process is as beneficial for you as possible. We will always work at a pace and level that feels right for you. As you move through the counselling process you will undoubtedly gain a deeper understanding of your inner thoughts and feelings. This clarity and insight can bring healing. It can also pave the way towards personal problem solving, leading in some cases to significant and lasting change.
