Sharon Bergin PGDip Psych. UKCP, MBACP, FPC
1 Ropemaker Street
I am a fully qualified Psychotherapist offering counselling and psychotherapy in central London.
You may have been thinking about accessing therapy for some time, or you may find yourself seeking support now because of a particular event or change in your circumstances. Perhaps you have engaged in other therapies before and would like to deepen your understanding and explore areas of yourself that remain undiscovered. Deciding to contact a therapist can feel like a big decision. I work towards offering you the opportunity to explore the issues that have brought you to therapy in a safe, secure and comfortable environment.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a fully qualified Psychodynamic Psychotherapist. I hold a Postgraduate Diploma in Psychodynamic Theory and Practice, gained with WPF Therapy, London.
I am a full member of The Foundation for Psychotherapy and Counselling (FPC) and a full registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I am a full member of the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP).
I have over twelve years combined experience of working in the voluntary sector, within government agencies, and in private practice. I have worked with individuals on a one-to-one basis and with groups of individuals as a facilitator and group leader. I have worked within a government organisation that required me to hold developed vetting (DV) security clearance; the most comprehensive level of security clearance. This means I have a good understanding of the pressures and responsibilities placed on individuals who work in sensitive and stressful environments.
