Psychodynamic Counsellor and Psychotherapist

Sophie has been practicing at the Stephenson Centre since qualifying and has experience in working with individuals with a range of psychological and emotional difficulties including anxiety, depression, trauma, low self-esteem, PTSD, stress as well as issues around sexuality, grief and relationships.

Sophie began her career in homeless hostels working with those evicted from multiple services who had complex needs including substance misuse, physical health issues and mental health problems. She has worked in Student Support at a University and is currently involved in co-ordination of those with lived experience of Social Care services.

Sophie believes that therapy should be an empathic and non-judgemental space where thoughts and feelings can be discussed openly, and links between the past and the present can be created. Through this process, the individual is empowered and gains a greater understanding of themselves. Sophie tailors all sessions to the person in front of her and their needs, valuing and celebrating their uniqueness. A trusting therapeutic relationship is an essential aspect of effective therapy, and Sophie aims to create this with all her clients. 

Sophie holds a Masters degree (MSc) in Psychodynamic Counselling and Psychotherapy, a Foundation Certificate in Counselling Skills and is an accredited member of one of the main therapy organisations. Sophie attends regular Continued Professional Development (CPD) sessions to ensure her skills and knowledge are up to date.
