I offer online therapy with Zoom

Hello! My name is Sophie. I trained as a Clinical Psychologist in the UK and Iím registered in the UK with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC).

I offer online sessions for English-speakers to support adult mental health and wellbeing using Brief Solution-Focused Therapy, an evidence-based short term therapy. I worked for the NHS in London for over 8 years, with adults and children experiencing mental and physical health difficulties. I now work with people experiencing a wide range of difficulties; my main areas of specialisation are chronic health conditions and parental mental health/parenthood.

I have been trained to use a number of different therapies and have seen their different benefits which I'm so pleased to be able to offer sessions based on Brief Solution Focused Therapy. I know from the evidence-base and clinical experience that this can help you move forward in your life, effect change quickly and help you cope in even the most difficult circumstances.

All therapies involve developing a meaningful relationship with your therapist. But while many therapies have an 'archaeological' approach, that is going back into your past experiences, or a 'problem-based' approach looking at what is going wrong for you, the Solution Focused approach shifts the conversation to helping you identify for yourself your own best ways forward, in real and manageable ways. Our work together will help you identify the changes you want to experience in the future, and what could help make them happen. It's a transformational approach which is forward-looking and very practical. And it's cost-effective - many people see changes in their life from only a few sessions, and often only need between 5-8 sessions spread out over a number of months before they decide that things are going well enough to stop meeting.

I offer a free 15 minute conversation for you to check to see whether my way of working is a good fit for you right now.
