I recognise how difficult and scary this can be and I am here to help.

Sophie (she/her) believes there is a need for more therapists who fuse intersectionality and social justice into their work. She sees you as more than just your symptoms; she sees your life experiences, your positionality and minority stress, your family & ancestral history, and your body's responses to all of this. She invites individuals of all ages into a safe, warm and non-judgemental space to explore these issues.
After many years of studying and practicing a wide range of holistic approaches for the body, mind and spirit, I've found the answer to true wellbeing comes from strengthening the relationship to ourselves on all levels; physical, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.

I work with clients to find the best suited practices for their individual lifestyle.

With a Master of Professional Psychology Practice, I confidently support clients in navigating a wide spectrum of mental health issues ranging from anxiety and mood disorders to complex trauma, relationship and attachment concerns. My interest in psychology was born out of a natural curiosity of human behaviour and has evolved into a deep passion for helping people cultivate a sense of aliveness & vitality. I am voraciously curious about the human condition, and this translates to the therapy room where I am always eager to seek understanding of the human being sitting across from me: their stories, their urges, and their "why?".
