About Me

Welcome to the Sydney Hills Counselling website. My name is Sophie De Vries and I am a qualified Clinical Counsellor registered with PACFA (Psychotherapy And Counselling Federation of Australia). I work in my private counselling practice in the Sydney Hills District and I also offer telecounselling services Australia-wide. I am an approved Victims Services counsellor, a registered NDIS provider, and a verified counsellor with Psychology Today, Australia.

My career path has included being an educator at Primary, Secondary and TAFE levels of Education and a Fitness Professional (Personal Trainer and accredited weight loss coach).

In addition to offering personal face-to-face counselling sessions, I offer telecounselling sessions via Zoom and facilitate groups for those individuals who are dealing with anxiety, depression, grief and loss, weight loss, infertility and relationship breakups.

Like most of you reading this post, my life has been a journey which has seen me grow and evolve into the person I am today. I have experienced my own share of both joy and sorrow, grief and loss, and therefore have a personal understanding of what most people bring to counselling.

With my particular blend of interests and achievements, I decided that the best way forward for me to be of service to others was to become a counsellor. I have a particular interest in Solution-Focused Brief therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Schema Therapy, Narrative therapy, and Creative Therapies.

It is my most sincere wish to help others create more happiness, love and success in their lives. As a counsellor, I can help you to understand yourself on a deeper level, so that you are able to make transformational, lasting positive changes to your life.
