Sophie Manente


Working through anxiety or depression can be difficult, but can also lead to some great changes in a person’s life.

Sophie has worked with people experiencing these issues extensively and uses a range of evidence-based approaches. She aims to work alongside you to achieve your goals, and work at the pace that feels right for you.

She provides a warm and non-judgmental space to work through your thoughts, feelings and behaviours, and create meaningful changes.

Laura Zapata Ospina Safe Place Therapy

Laura Zapata


Laura finds online counselling particularly useful for people who struggle to talk about their feelings. Surprisingly, the internet helps this kind of clients to open up about themselves, talk about their issues and set up goals, therefore, it positively contributes to the therapeutic relationship.

Laura has vast experience working with parents, children, and young adults. Laura’s approach is based on compassion and kindness, she considers that the most important factor in therapy is to understand how people are travelling and the meaning they have given to their journey.

Laura will walk alongside your way, helping you to name your feelings, describe your experience and will support you to reframe your story based on the strengths that are identified along the way.
