To take-on responsibilities that currently seem too much. To feel empowered. My role is to help you get there.

In an ideal world, everyone should have someone, they can talk to. But the world isn't ideal and talking to someone you know may be difficult, or even problematic. So I can help. There’s a Chinese proverb that I like - ‘reading ten thousand scrolls, rather walk ten thousand miles.’ When we search for answers, our first point is the internet or books but what we can’t grasp from written literature, is the life experiences of interactions and 'light bulb' moments. My journeys have covered more than ten thousand miles. I have encountered and experienced many difficulties myself and I want to help you to overcome yours and feel better.

Thank you for visiting my page. I understand that it can be extremely difficult to decide and find someone who you trust with your child and also how challenging it is for a Child or Young Person to seek help - this is why I decided to become a Children and Young Persons Therapist. My name is Sophie and throughout my career I've always worked with Children and Young People in various different settings such as Private Respite Care, Children Centres, Schools (SEN, Safeguarding) and Educational Provision Units. I decided to train as a Children and Young Peoples Therapist after seeing the lack of successful support available.

Thank you for taking the time to view my profile. I'm Jess, a person centred counsellor specialising in the treatment of trauma in children and adolescents. Trauma can be defined as any experience which overwhelms us and when unresolved, can lead to having really big and sometimes very complex feelings. This can include bouts of depression, high anxiety, a lack of motivation, low mood, aggressive outbursts and unwanted and intrusive thoughts. When trauma is fully processed, these thoughts and feelings can and often do subside. In response to the lack of trauma treatment provision, I founded 'The Gap (Bedfordshire) Ltd' in 2018.

Sometimes you may be feeling sad or feeling the weight of anxiety. You may be dealing with relationship issues, traumatic event or might not know why you feel unhappy, and need help to move forward in a safe space. You may want to explore and work on yourself, in a non-non-judgemental environment, or want to talk about difficult issues with someone you feel comfortable talking to. Some years ago, I went on my own journey through therapy, which helped me to understand the process of counselling, and value of being in a safe space with someone who showed me genuiness, acceptance, and empathy.

Having worked in couple therapy for many years, my main observation is the loss of connection most people feel to their partners. Sometimes, this disconnection may play out as, a general feeling of discontent, or constant arguments, maybe there will be a loss of desire. whatever the issue it can only be fixed by agreeing to reconnect. I believe that couples can make a choice to reconnect. My goal is to take couple on a journey from where they are to reconnection. Finding a level of emotional intimacy that will transcend any present and future challenges to the couple relationship.
