I cannot rate Sophie highly enough, I was never a big believer in these kinds of things and could never see how talking could sort things out for you. I went to Sophie at a very low point in my life and came out a different person. Just through talking I have made massive decisions, taken my life into my own hands and now feel on top of the world, the best news is I will always have her number for the future. I hope everybody has the same positive experience.

I could not recommend Sophie as a counsellor highly enough. She is extremely professional and makes you feel very comfortable and at ease. She allows you the time to talk, cry and laugh and I never felt judged. She maintains complete confidentiality. She helped me unravel my anxieties at my own pace and remembered so many things I had confided in her from one week to the next. She has given me the tools I need to live a more confident life and opened my eyes to many things that I hadn't realised were affecting me. I feel much stronger as a person as a result of the sessions with her. Even through lockdown we managed sessions over FaceTime, which I loved because I was in the comfort of my own home. My friend recommended her to me and I would recommend Sophie to anyone without hesitation.

I can one hundred percent recommend Sophie for counselling. I found working with her an extremely positive experience. I had lost my mum and also had a difficult breakup in a short space of time. I felt my confidence had plummeted. Sophie helped me get me back again. She has empathy, is a fantastic listener and there is a natural warmth with her too. A very encouraging lady. Thank you Sophie!

I have been seeing Sophie for over a year after hitting a low point in my life. Sophie has helped me back to a good place and I still see her now while my life continues to be challenging, I really can’t thank her enough.

I have been seeing Sophie on a regular basis for the last year and a half. During this time I was dealing with a relationship breakdown. When I went to Sophie my head was full of “fog” I couldn’t see the wood for the trees. I had so many questions that I needed to answer in order to make things ok for me move forward with my decision to end my marriage. Sophie gave me clarity at a time of total confusion, she helped me work through lots of issues and very importantly taught me to “honour” myself. Quite honestly I really don’t know how I would have got through it without your support Sophie – Thank you, you are a star! X

Thank you, Sophie, for listening without fear of judgement. You helped change an angry mum and teenage relationship into a positive fun relationship. I didn’t think it possible only a few months ago. Sophie helped my daughter deal with relentless bullies and helped both of us with the stresses our relationship. I wish I hadn’t left it so long and wouldn’t hesitate in asking for Sophie’s help in future.

The dictionary definition of bereavement can’t define you, that is why I acknowledge that every chair is different.

Bereavement is the time it takes to adjust to loss but this differs from person to person. It is normal to grieve and there is no right or wrong emotion you should experience during your bereavement. Initially you may feel stunned and unable to accept the news. You may carry on automatically but have feelings of being tense and apprehensive.

Why not contact me for a Free 20 minute taster session?

07525 116668 sophie@yourspacetoday.com

As a bereaved person you may find yourself pining, searching, or looking for endless examinations of how and why the loss occurred

Grief can shake you and your view of your world and you may feel angry or numb. Through talking about your loss with me, you will in time gradually find a place for your loss, carry on in your life albeit one that is now shaped differently and eventually find acceptance.

It is almost inevitable that as a bereaved person you may at times despair that anything can be salvaged.

Why do I feel this way?

People who are unable to mourn the loss of someone important to them may feel deeply dissatisfied with their lives and may come to see their personal relationships as empty. For some people. bereavement represents a change for the worse and for others a change for the better, either way you may feel the strangeness of something no longer being familiar.

Take the first steps to feeling happier again…

How does Bereavement Counselling help?

I can offer you Your Space Today and through counselling we will look at your experiences of bereavement, what it feels like for you, both emotionally and physically.

By providing you with a supportive place to talk at my consulting room in Storrington, near Worthing West Sussex, we can look at the impact that this is having on your life, work and relationships.

After your first few sessions, you will begin to feel much more at ease, but don’t take my word for it…
