Hello my name is Sonia Herbert, I am a registered Psychotherapist, Counsellor and Counselling Trainer and supervisor.
I am a skilled and experienced therapist with over 11 years experience in practicing therapy and training of trainee Counsellors to undergraduate level.
I have worked in NHS settings; hospital and a GP practice, within a children’s nursery, in bereavement, education and colleges.
I am an integrative psychotherapist; this means that I integrate elements from different schools of psychotherapy in order to respond effectively and appropriately to the person as a whole. I believe theoretically there is no one truth, different people need different approaches and interventions at differing times. I have a hopeful view of human beings and believe that we are influenced by external forces as well as our unconscious.
I work either short term or open ended
A counselling session is 50 minutes and we will usually meet weekly. When we first meet we will look at confidentiality, practical issues and any questions you may have.
As a trainer of counsellors I have a good insight into what the expectations are from the college/university , and from yourself, with regards to personal therapy and supervision which are required.
