Guiding You On the Path of Self-Healing


Welcome, I’m Sophie, I am a Qualified Psychotherapist, Counsellor and Hypnotherapist.

Whether you are living with a difficult situation which is causing you distress, or you are affected by experiences from your past - I am here to help.

I took an interest in well-being and mental health, when I became a people manager in the corporate banking world. This environment has given me a wealth of knowledge and allowed me to work with a range of people. I gained my Counselling and Hypnotherapy qualifications, it allowed me to support teams up and down the country in my role as a wellbeing manager. Whether it was helping with anxiety, a family situation or work-related stress, I was able to empathise, provide the support and tools to help them improve their situation. I saw how much stress and anxiety effected people, how it can take over your day-to-day life, making daily tasks unbearable, feel overwhelming, and this is why it’s an area I now specialise in. I can support you by looking at the root cause of the issue and help you overcome that in the right way, to help you move forward.

I’ve been told by my clients I am a warm and friendly person, and that people feel safe and at ease in our sessions. I will talk openly and honestly with you throughout our sessions. You may experience a range of emotion in therapy, but it’s not all tears, you may laugh as well.

As an integrative counsellor I use a range of approaches and models to support you:



* Psychodynamic

*Transactional Analysis.



In our Counselling sessions you will have the opportunity to discuss and explore your feelings and the challenges you are facing in a safe, non-judgemental and confidential space. 

You will be provided with support, and tools to empower you to move forward in the best way for you. 

You maybe looking to come to counselling for a number of reasons, a life changing event, grief or loss, you may have low self esteem or suffering from feelings of anxiety or depression

You may be experiencing a lack of direction, feelings of boredom or of being trapped. Perhaps you are experiencing difficulties in a significant relationship, that you are unable to manage in a healthy way. These ongoing issues, without the knowledge and/or support of how to overcome them, may leave you feeling lost and trapped.

Extreme feelings such as anger, shame, guilt, sadness or loneliness may be affecting your daily life, keeping you stuck in an uncomfortable place.

You may not be aware of the reason you want counselling, you may just know something isn't quite right. Together we can work through the reason and I can offer a confidential space, free of judgement , to enable you to explore your feelings, emotions and work through your current situation. I will work with you, support you in finding the answers you need, and coping strategies to enable you to move forward and achieve your goals

and many more,

feel free to get in touch to discuss what I can offer further


Hypnotherapy is a great tool. It is a perfectly normal and safe alternative state of consciousness – a deep state of relaxation where you are more susceptible to suggestion allowing you to conform to a change in behavioural habits, phobias or anxieties. Analytical techniques can also be used in an attempt to uncover problems deemed to lie deep and buried in the client’s subconscious mind.

It is a psychological experience; it’s neither mysterious nor supernatural.  It is a form of therapy which enables you to enlist the help of your conscious and subconscious minds to facilitate positive change and well-being allowing you to live the life you wish for.

Treatment Areas 

Weight Management 

Increase Self Esteem 


Quit Smoking 

Fears and Phobias
