Hello. My name is Sophie - I am a qualified Integrative Counsellor, which means I have knowledge and understanding of different therapeutic approaches. This combined with a person-centred ethos means that I work with you to understand what it is you would like from counselling, and tailor my approach to you. This might simply be offering a space to talk and be heard, or it may be offering some tools and techniques for moving forward. Sometimes, you might not know exactly what it is you would like from counselling - and that is okay too. We work together to create a therapeutic space that is as beneficial as possible for you.
Clients come with a wide range of issues and concerns to explore, such as anxiety and depression, stress, self-esteem/body image, LGBTQ+/gender identity, neurodiversity, trauma and relationships/attachment.
I have experience in supporting survivors of a wide range of traumatic life events. These include but are not limited to; domestic abuse, medical trauma, childhood sexual abuse and other adverse childhood experiences. I believe that trauma and the consequences of experiencing trauma can be felt from a wide range of human experiences, that don’t necessarily fit into the descriptions above.
I also have a strong passion for working with disability and impairment, stemming from my work as a Personal Assistant. This role gave me the knowledge and understanding to allow me to embed myself in The Social Model of Disability, whereby it is not a person’s impairment that disables them, but the largely inaccessible society that we live in.
I am currently offering a limited number of face-to-face and Zoom sessions from my counselling room in Sheffield.
