Counsellor Profile: Sophie Gower

The bravest thing we can do when things get hard is ask for help. I have been working with people going through crises ranging from depression and anxiety to relationship break down and trauma for the last 12 years and have had the privilege of seeing people find hope even in the midst of difficulty. I work in an integrative way, incorporating aspects of cognitive-behavioural therapy, person-centred approach and attachment theory to offer clients the tools that are most useful to them. I aim to give clients a safe and confidential space to explore the causes behind their difficulties, as well as working with them to find practical solutions and hope for the future.

Experience

I’ve worked with people from a wide variety of backgrounds and supported clients dealing with many issues including depression, anxiety, self-harm, domestic abuse, relationship break down, family difficulties and child-hood trauma. I have specialised in working with people recovering from exploitation and post-traumatic stress.
