Through psychotherapy Life Studio provides a safe, confidential and supportive environment. A place of understanding for one to think, decompress and process problems. Therapy aids you in gaining insight into your past, present and future to achieve peace in the noise of modern life and find balance again.

Psychotherapy is a resource that everybody can benefit from. Those who seek personal support in times of struggle, those who need help in processing their experiences, or for those who wish to further understand themselves, their thoughts, behaviour and relationships. Psychotherapy differs from other kinds of counselling in that it is a space for in-depth analysis of elements of your psyche and external experiences. In your own time we look at uncovering and unblocking dysfunctional unconscious defences, expectations and thinking pathways to provide greater understanding and encourage healthy management.


The ability to calm, re-evaluate, and control our lives starts with our minds


Life Studio Mind focuses on finding out who you are, what you need and where you want to be. We look at your internal and external environments seeking to locate, understand, unblock and realign inhibiting internal processes.

Life Studio offers support to those who are experiencing various difficulties in life. Issues range from: anxiety; stress; bereavement; broken relationships; overwhelming emotions; parenthood; career burn out; historical events and experiences; challenging family dynamics; depression and; those with low confidence who seek self-development. All are provided with a space to offload and gain tools needed to live the life they want to live.

“I relocated to London for a short period around two years ago and honestly believe that one of the best things that came out of my time there was meeting up with Sophie. After the initial excitement of moving to a new city I soon found myself struggling. Perhaps too much time on my own led to me reflect on life in general and various personal issues and everyday life experiences seemed to become insurmountable.

My sessions with Sophie allowed me to explore my thoughts and delve deeper into root causes and solutions. Sophie was never judgmental, never tired of hearing probably much of the same week after week, never criticised or mocked my tears and took, what I felt, to be a personal interest in me. Rather than handing me solutions and realisations, Sophie gave me the time and the enthusiasm to reach them for myself.

I honestly have nothing but positive things to say about the Life Studio experience with Sophie and would definitely recommend her to others.”
