Sophia trained as a counsellor/psychotherapist at the University of Edinburgh. Her therapeutic approach is grounded in a dialogue between the Person-Centred and Psychodynamic perspectives.
Sophia has experience of working with a variety of adult clients who present many different issues and concerns; she works collaboratively and interactively with her clients, to offer both short-term and longer-term counselling/psychotherapy.
Sophia thinks of counselling and psychotherapy as offering space and relationship for healing, finding meaning in life and for developing new insight. Her aim is to enable people to explore who they are, how they feel, and what they need to enrich their lives. She thinks that our past experiences, and especially our past relationships, make their presence felt in the here and now. The therapeutic relationship offers the possibility of healing legacies from the past and of developing new, richer ways of being in the present.
Sophia is a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).
