Welcome to the Tree House

Updated: Nov 21, 2018

Firstly, I’d like to introduce myself - I’m Sophie, a psychotherapist from West Yorkshire. (You probably know this already if you’ve found my website!)

So.. a bit about me!

Throughout my life I have always had a passion for helping people and I found myself within caring or helping roles within my career choices.

However, I never truly felt satisfied and after loosing my career due to ill health I knew it was a perfect opportunity for me to re-train and do something I felt passionate about. But What???

Due to my health I was facing real challenges and obstacles, I felt lost, overwhelmed, I fell into bouts of depression and anxiety. Deep down I knew I was worth so much more but couldn’t get out of the stupor I’d fallen into to.

A short while after I met a wonderful therapist who taught me that I was worthy. We worked really hard together for about 15 months and after a rollercoaster of emotions, frustrations and light bulb moments, I found an inner strength. Don’t get me wrong this was not an overnight magic cure but I was taking the steps I needed and really looking deeply into finding myself once again.

Towards the end of my therapy I realised this was the vocation I really wanted to embark. A few months later I enrolled onto my first counselling course at a local college before spending 4 years at university to gain more knowledge and to gain further qualifications.

5 years on and I haven’t looked back! I am extremely dedicated to the work I do and I love working with people from all different walks of life! I have a thirst for knowledge and I’m constantly looking for courses to develop this. I am proud to call myself a therapist!

Go on take the plunge and I’ll meet you by the tree!
