Counsellor & Psychotherapist - ( at Sophie Lawton Therapy)
Diploma in Integrative Counselling from The Minster Centre NCS Accredited Member: NCS21-01924 BACP Registered Member: 389059

I completed my core training at The Minster Centre and hold a Diploma in Integrative Counselling, a BACP accredited course. Integrative therapy draws on multiple approaches and theories, and my way of working has been particularly shaped by relational psychotherapy and attachment theory. This means I believe that the relationships we experience in our early lives affect our later ways of relating to both ourselves and others. I believe that therapy is a fundamentally relational endeavour - not that people are broken and therefore need to be “fixed” - but rather that through working together we can come to new ways of relating, understanding and being. I try to cultivate a warm, open and non-judgemental space for you to explore yourself and your issues in. In addition, I hold a Graduate Certificate in Gender & Sexuality Studies from Birkbeck University. I am experienced in working with issues to do with gender and sexuality, relationship diversity (polyamory, non-monogamy etc) and provide an LGBTQ+ affirmative practice, but welcome clients from all backgrounds. I am mindful of the social, cultural and structural issues involved in the difficulties we face as individuals.

I believe that therapy can help with so many issues, whether they feel vague or specific, and allow us to come to a better understanding of ourselves and our histories so we can live fuller, more authentic lives.

I work online via Zoom, so welcome clients from any location.
