Sophia Hilsley (FPC, UKCP, BACP)
I am an experienced, UKCP, BACP registered psychodynamic psychotherapist. I work in my own private practice in London Belgravia, SW1. I am also a member of the London Psychotherapy Network. I provide a confidential, safe space where, without judgment or criticism, we can consider what is making you unhappy.

People often seek psychotherapy or counselling when they are in crisis. At times we can all feel ‘stuck’, as if there are no options left to explore. Other people come to therapy when they are not so much in crisis, but are perhaps beginning to notice negative patterns in their relationships, behaviours or feelings. Therapy can’t change the past; but it can be helpful to think about your life with a trained therapist; working together to identify ways to move forward and ultimately, find a more satisfying and valuable way to live.

During these difficult times I am offering therapy via various video conferencing methods including Skype, Zoom and Google Duo. I will be returning to face to face work from mid May.

If I am not able to see you for sessions I can also recommend one of my practice colleagues.

It is perfectly true, as philosophers say, that life must be understood backwards. But they forget the other proposition, that it must be lived forwards.
