Life can be very challenging and taking the first step into counselling can be one of the most difficult choices. Whether you are looking for short term support or want to explore deeper issues on a more open-ended basis, my main goal is to offer you a warm, friendly, confidential, caring, non-judgmental and supportive space for you to safely explore your challenges at your own pace and to be truly listened to. Through counselling, clients can re-discover their authentic-self, increase self-acceptance, self-worth and self-awareness, develop resilience and self-compassion, reduce anxiety or stress and improve their mood.

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.

Throughout our lives, we are often confronted with experiences and/or difficulties that challenge us. Sometimes, these challenges can leave us struggling and in need of a space in which we we can safely explore, understand, and learn how to overcome these issues. ​ Through careful exploration, not only is it possible to learn how to overcome these challenges, we can also begin to understand how they can in fact offer us new opportunities to learn and grow. I take a open and collaborative approach to therapy and am keen to support you with any challenges you are facing

Having undergone therapy myself I appreciate the importance of finding a therapist whom is able to facilitate a safe, warm and confidential environment to support the exploration of your story. I have worked with an array of clients whom have accessed therapy for varying reasons that they feel are inhibiting them from living an authentic life. My role within the therapeutic relationship is to work alongside an individual to facilitate self-exploration and consider alternative routes that may lay before them. I offer individual, group, relationship and family therapy. Please follow the link to my website for further information about these services in more detail. I have extensive knowledge of addiction in all of its forms and have worked with both those in the depths of their addiction as well as those whom are in recovery and have also supported friends and family members too.

Does life feel overwhelming? Are you feeling stuck? anxious? depressed? stressed? Perhaps you are struggling to face daily life? Maybe thoughts of not wanting to be here have crept in and this has frightened you? Whether you are an adult, couple or young person, life can throw all sorts at us, things we were not expecting! Whatever your circumstances, there are times when we all need to find some emotional support to help us. We may feel unable to open up to friends or family, through fear of being judged, being given unwanted advice, being shut down and not heard. Speaking to a counsellor releases these worries.

We all confront struggles at some stage in our lives, and overcoming these can feel like a challenge. There may be challenges with our internal world, in our relationships, or we may experience a significant life event that means we start to feel ‘stuck’. This can lead to feeling a lack of self-confidence and to feelings of self-doubt. I understand that taking that first step to talk to someone can be difficult, and thus I create a safe space that encourages you to feel supported and heard. I believe in the importance of working alongside you as part of a journey to increased self-development and overall improved well-being.

Hello, in these challenging times you may be feeling alone and isolated, not just in terms of your physical space but psychologically too. I’m working with clients online or on the telephone and can offer you a safe and confidential space to talk through your feelings. Those who seek counselling do so for a variety of reasons and in my time in practice I have worked with people in distress because of bereavement, trauma and relationship difficulties. Some clients are anxious and/or depressed. All seek help to live a more fulfilled life.

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.

Going to therapy can be hard; having to share inner conflicts and pain can feel exposing, yet liberating. My purpose is to create an empowering environment with you for these vulnerabilities to be shared safely. At EK Therapy, my aim is to reduce barriers of access for communities that feel like organisations/care systems have not fully understood their needs. Embedded in Sikh Ethos, I value honesty, non-judgement and universal truth. “EK” in Gurmukhi means “One.” Integration of the Soul, Mind and Body means we’re able to reach a more fulfilled state and way of living.

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.

Life is full of challenges that can leave us hurt and uncertain and because we generally care about who we are becoming and the lives of those close to us, these challenges are worth effort and time to consider. Sometimes, challenges can leave us feeling stuck and suffering as problems that won't go away, while others can leave us curious about what might be if only we could change our relationship to the world around us. Psychological therapy offers an encounter with yourself in the company of a therapist who can support a process of reflection and change and bear witness to the story of your struggles and strengths.

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.

When was the last time someone gave you permission to just play? I am passionate about exploring difficult feelings and emotions through the use of the art medium in a creative and trusting environment. Working with adults, young people and children, I go with the pace of the client and encourage the use of playing with the art materials to explore a range of issues a person may be experiencing in their life. I work with people so they may explore themselves on a deeper level to overcome challenges, whether those are problems in relationships, anxiety, depression, loss and bereavement or fears and worries about the future.

I am a fully accredited Cognitive Behavioural Therapist with the BABCP.My skills, interests and experience are primarily in eating disorders, depression and anxiety disorders. It is not unusual to feel lost and stuck in your illness, and it can feel anxiety provoking and frightening when initially asking for help. You may feel conflicted about letting go of your illness as you may find it helps and protects you at times - this is not uncommon - and we will spend some time at the start of therapy understanding what is keeping you stuck and working through some of these conflicting feelings in order to decide together the best ways to
