The Sofalive Platform is the brainchild and passion of its Founders and has been realised after many years of silent development.  Fired with the belief that each one of us is unique and deserve to live free from the constraints of confusion and mental anguish, the aim is to be effective in reducing the escalating reality that is devastating so many lives.

The Sofalive Online Platform has been developed to connect qualified professionals and those seeking help.

Are you considering
in-person counselling?

If you are, there are many benefits.

Effective counselling reduces confusion allowing you to see your thoughts from a different perspective.  It allows you time to process and confront feelings that would normally be pushed down. 

It can help you make effective decisions that lead to positive changes in your attitude and/or behaviour. 

If you’re a couple you get the benefit of a neutral party so both sides can air their feelings and viewpoint.

At the Sofalive Centre you can access  counsellors, psychotherapists and psychologists who cover a range of skills.  Among them you’re sure to find a therapist that’s right for you whether you want short term or ongoing counselling.  We provide counselling for individuals, couples or family groups. 

The Sofalive Centre offers private therapy rooms where you can have confidential discussions with your therapist.

The range of therapy services we provide at the Sofalive Centre are as follows:

Low Cost Counselling
Private Therapy 
Generalised Anxiety
Addiction Counselling
Anger Management Therapy
Couples Counselling
Child & Adolescent Counselling
Bereavement Counselling
LGBT+ Counselling 
Sex & Relationship Therapy
