Hello, I am Sophie, a warm and compassionate Creative Psychotherapist registered with HCPC. I offer a therapy space free from expectation or judgement, to support you in finding clarity, comfort and coping skills and I aim to work with clients to connect them back in with their authenticity.

 

Arts based psychotherapy is a holistic, embodied and trauma-informed approach to wellness and healing. It promotes emotional and nervous system regulation while also inviting you to access and meet with different parts of yourself. Some parts may be hidden away with stories waiting to be told, while others are perhaps overworked or playing out roles only to please others. Alongside Dramatherapy, some therapeutic models I draw on include Compassion Focused Therapy, Inner-Child work and Internal Family Systems. 


Sometimes an over-active and stressed cognitive mind is not the most useful place for us to seek solutions and peace from; therefore as well as talking together, it may be that working through metaphor proves more accessible and beneficial. Visualisations, meditations, music, movement, the use of images, art-making and other embodied practices may play a part in the therapy, but I will always be led by you. The relationship between us will remain the most important aspect and we will begin by discovering our own shared language and continue the work together in only ways that you feel most comfortable with!

 

I have much experience of working with adolescents, as well as with adults and younger children too. My experience ranges from working in forensics services, the NHS (CAMHS), the charity sector (specialising in bereavement support), and the education sector - where I am currently working with teens and staff members.

I am available on Fridays, certain times on Wednesdays and Thursdays, as well as the option for weekend slots - do feel free to ask. I charge £70 per session but am more than happy to have an informal chat initially to see if I am the right fit for what you’re looking for.

To find out more, or to book an appointment, call 07379 278139, or fill in the contact form below, and we'll get back to you.,
