Sonia Pace


Professional background and experience

Since qualifying as a Clinical Psychologist in 2009, I have gained extensive experience working in adult mental health across a range of settings, including primary and secondary care, and health psychology. Most recently working with clients who often have severe and complex mental health, social, and relationship difficulties. I have experience working with a variety of mental health presentations including depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), emotional unstable personality disorder and psychosis.

I am always keen to expand my knowledge and skills and have an interest in, cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), compassion focused therapy (CFT) and dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT).  I am enthusiastic about working collaboratively using evidence-based practice to help an individual gain a better understanding of their difficulties and to help make a difference to their lives.

What to expect from our Therapists

We carry out rigorous checks and vet all our therapists before they join the team. They must meet with our high standards of professional specification which includes:

This means that the mental health professional you see will be qualified, experienced and competent.

We are a private mental health clinic and have a number of therapists with different specialities. Because of this, we can offer therapies to help with a wide range of mental health issues from Anxiety to PTSD and child psychology.

First, we carry out a triage step during a 15-minute free initial telephone consultation. Depending on the challenges you’re facing, we will then recommend a counsellor, CBT therapist or clinical psychologist.

We also have clinic locations throughout the North, so there is usually one not too far from you.

As a result, we can usually offer an appointment quickly and at a time and place convenient for you. But, above all, tailored to your needs.

Please note, not all of our therapists work from all our clinic locations. Contact us for information on which therapists it is possible to see at which locations.

As well as Sonia Pace we have a number of other Clinical Psychologists, CBT Therapists and Counsellors in our team.
