Sonia works with both adults and adolescents, specialising in trauma, PTSD and C-PTSD, domestic and family violence, grief and loss, anxiety, depression, life transitions, difficulties with boundaries, family estrangement, emotional regulation and shame. Supporting her clients with communication and interpersonal relationships is a special interest of hers.
