Counsellor, Psychotherapist, Clinical Supervisor, Mindfulness Teacher.
Hello, my name is Sonia. With 20 years practice, I am a highly experienced qualified and accredited Psychotherapist and experienced Clinical Supervisor and Mindfulness teacher. I fell into supporting others after having counselling during a difficult time in my life. Having lived experience changed my perspective on my life struggles and helped me clear my own pathway through the emotional blocks I was experiencing at the time. I work with compassion and empathy allowing you to discover your own answers, because I believe they are within you.
