Using art affords Sophie's clients the opportunity to express what words alone cannot. It often reveals rich material into the room with layers of symbolic meaning to be explored, and it allows people to offload their internal world onto the page, where it can then be more easily held, seen and understood. The therapeutic relationship is also central to Sophie's practice as it offers the foundations of a safe and trusting space in which one can begin to open up to what can be such a healing and reparative process.
