Hello, my name’s Sovereign and I'm a counsellor in the final stage of my training with experience in working with all kinds of people, including the LGBTQ+ community. I am part of the LGBTQ+ community myself, identifying as a queer non-binary person. I’m based in Bristol, where I offer both face-to-face and online sessions.
As a non-binary person walking through this world – I have often experienced that parts of myself have felt unwelcome. So, my approach as a counsellor is to welcome all of the different parts of my client into the relationship that we build together. There may be a part of you that feels scared of starting therapy or another part that believes that counselling could never help. I openly invite all your different parts and will hold a compassionate, kind and safe space so you can start to discover yourself as a whole person.
My work is based in Person-Centred counselling, which means I am led by each individual client in deciding the direction of their own therapy. The style and quality of space which I offer is strongly influenced by Carl Rogers. As my training is both Humanistic and Integrative I naturally draw upon multiple approaches to support clients in understanding their unique sense of self. I am really open to working with image, metaphor and visualisation which can support clients in bringing more vibrancy and colour to their internal world. I am very happy to share this way of working if this is something that appeals to you.
I am especially enthusiastic about supporting clients with Inner Critic dialogue, which in my experience can lessen the negative influence of this sub-personality on our internal world and creative process
I have been working for the Swan Project charity in Bristol, for over four years, supporting clients with a wide range of different issues.
I offer a FREE 30 minute intro via Zoom or on the telephone to meet, discuss your needs and for us to decide if I am the most appropriate counsellor for you.
