I help people navigate through real life. Messy relationships, sucky jobs, heartbreak, trauma, and dreams you’ve forgotten.


I'll give you actionable tools to help you let go, find meaning, and re-gain confidence and courage. I will be your biggest supporter while we work together to heal the stuff that’s holding you back.


I will do my best to make sure you get breakthroughs, insights and empowerment.  This, of course, also requires your participation, hard work and willingness to look inward.

√ I recommend this therapist

I'm a very happy client

When I decided to see Sonia, I was feeling very confused in my life. I was experiencing anxiety and a sort of depression again, plus, I had recently moved to New Zealand from another country which was hard.

We worked through topics that I chose and every single session was significant and successful, because I learnt a lot about myself. I think we all have our answers inside, but sometimes we need to be open to go into deep emotions to heal our present. That's what my sessions were about.

I felt very comfortable talking to Sonia, sharing my experiences and doing exercises to have a healthy lifestyle. I'm a very happy client, thanks again Sonia for teaching me and giving me a lot of tools to heal myself.

√ I recommend this therapist

Extremely helpful

Each session with Sonia I walk away having learnt something about myself and feel a weight lifted off my shoulders. Sonia has a friendly and patient demeanour, putting you right at ease from the beginning.

A wealth of knowledge, Sonia has been so extremely helpful in my journey, I cannot thank her enough!
