Sophie Foyster Psychologist

Hi, I'm Sophie 👋

Please note that Sophie will be going on maternity leave from 6 June, 2022.

Lovely to see you’ve reached this point in your journey. Taking the first step to seek help is often the hardest part! 


I view mental health through a philosophical lens of what it is to live a dignified and purposeful existence. While addressing distress is important, I believe it equally important to foster dreams and goals to minimise distress re-occurring. 

I value working collaboratively with clients to achieve optimal mental health. I love helping clients to identify barriers to growth and to help them achieve their personal goals.
