About Me

My name is Sonia Willmot and I am a qualified and experienced Counsellor and Life Coach working in Newbury in Berkshire. 

I hold an Advanced Diploma in Integrative Therapeutic Counselling and I am a Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP).   As a member of this governing body, I adhere to their Ethical Framework for Good Practice.  Integrative Counselling means that I use a variety of counselling techniques, tools and theories, including CBT.   You will find my membership details on the BACP website

Prior to becoming a Counsellor, I worked in commerce and the public sector in a local but global blue chip company, as a Management Development Consultant.  During my career, I worked to achieve a certificate in Training and Development which I was awarded from the Institute of Personnel and Development. 

I am a qualified practitioner in MBTI (Myers Briggs) and I formally trained for a diploma in Life Coaching with the director of Achievement Specialists Curly Martin.  This Life Coaching Diploma Course is accredited by two external, non-affiliated bodies, The Open College Network and the European Coaching Institute.

Using these skills in my work, I Coached and Trained all levels of employees in large groups and more frequently on a one-to-one basis.

Whilst working as a Management Development Consultant I trained as a Counsellor and after qualifying, I worked for 14:21 Time to Talk  in Newbury, Berkshire as an outreach counsellor working with students, in local schools.

As well as being in private practice, I currently work for the NSPCC  offering short or long-term counselling to men and women.  I also work in Family Mediation in Swindon, Wiltshire where I counsel children from the age of nine years through to adolescence.
