Sharon Kirby MBACP (Snr. accred) UKCP reg.
I work towards building a supportive and collaborative relationship with clients, creating a space where feelings, thoughts and experiences can safely be explored and processed. I believe the therapeutic process can bring about insight, greater self awareness and emotional growth, enabling individuals to move forwards towards achieving a greater sense of balance, fulfilment and peace in their lives.
I have over 20 years experience, working with a wide range of concerns and in different settings including community counselling & family services, the NHS, and Higher Education. I currently work in private practice and have a specialist interest in working with relationship issues with both individuals and couples.
