Making it easy
Sofia Lopoukhine, Counsellor for individual adults, understands that deciding to see a Mental Health Counsellor and Therapist, can feel overwhelming and that’s why she is happy to offer you a chance to meet with her in person to decide if you would like to work with her. Clients that Sofia has worked with have experienced a variety of issues including anxiety, depression, trauma, relationship boundaries, communication and intimacy, low self-confidence, identity questions, unresolved grief, chronic pain, and life transitions.
She firmly believes in the transformational impact of psychotherapy and has seen remarkable changes in the lives of her clients.
After receiving her Master of Arts degree in Counselling and Spirituality, Sofia continues to regularly pursue training opportunities due to her commitment to building and improving her counselling skills to best serve her clients. She has taken additional training for clients suffering from chronic pain and on how to use Mindfulness techniques through the lens of ACT: Acceptance and Commitment Therapy.
Sofia also values giving back to the community and currently serves as the Executive Secretary for the Association of Spirituality and Mental Health of Ottawa. She is a professional member of the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association (CCPA) and in the application process to become a Registered Psychotherapist with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario (CRPO).
Outside of work, Sofia enjoys many cultural activities, including theatre, dance, music and visual art. She deeply values spending time with friends and family. She loves discovering new and ancient cultures while travelling including seeing the pyramids in Egypt, cathedrals in Italy, and folk-dancing in Hungary.
