Offering Accessible Online Counselling and Supervision
My name is Sophie Wise and I’m an integrative Counsellor, meaning I’m trained in a number of different psychological theories and models, which enable me to tailor my approach to fit the individual needs of each person I work with. I acknowledge that each individual has a unique perspective on life and requires a unique counselling experience.
I work with adults by video online and/or by phone.
I believe that everyone has the ability to make changes in their lives and their thinking and, with support, can work towards a more contented way of being. I’m constantly in awe of the transformation that people can make through counselling and I feel privileged to be able to be a part of it.
I am experienced in a wide spectrum of issues including (but not limited to) anxiety, trauma, PTSD and CPTSD, low self-esteem, loss and grief, relationship and family issues, as well as emotional, physical and narcissistic abuse. You may be experiencing some of these or you may feel helpless and you don’t know why.
Understanding how difficult it can be to take the step into having counselling, I focus on helping you to feel safe enough to explore what is going on for you, both in the present and past. I offer a safe, supportive, professional and confidential space in which we will share the process of exploring your situation and the future you would like to build. Within this I offer empathy (striving to understand what it’s like for you personally in your situation) and honesty without judgement.
“I just wanted to thank you for your guidance through what was probably the toughest year of my life. I am a world away from where I was and my boundary setting is as strong as ever! You were a great help to me, so thank you very much!”
Counselling for Counsellors
As a fellow counsellor, I understand the unique challenges and pressures that come with this rewarding yet demanding profession. I also understand that sometimes life brings in new challenges and we can begin to struggle.
I believe that counselling is not only beneficial for our clients, but also for us as counsellors. By taking care of ourselves, we are better equipped to support and empower those we work with. That’s why I offer sessions to counsellors who are feeling burnt out, overwhelmed, or simply need a safe and non-judgemental space to talk about what life or work has brought in.
You are welcome to have a one-off session or however many you require. You may choose to come and go as and when challenges come in.
