About me

Hello, a warm welcome to you. My name is Sharon and I am a qualified Humanistic Integrative Counsellor. This means that I work with clients who are experiencing a range of issues, using a Humanistic Integrative approach: CBT, Gestalt, Person-centred, Psychodynamic and TA. I adhere by the BACP ethical framework of good practice and also abide by the ACC professional code of ethics.

If you are hurting, worried, anxious, fearful, feeling overburdened with life’s problems, lonely or distressed, or just searching for answers, then I believe counselling can help you.

You will be given space to share what’s going on in your life:

... to share your story
... to explore your thoughts and feelings, in a safe environment
... to explore pressing issues
... to set goals and to work toward them

I work with adults, young people and the elderly, offering services in:
1. Long-term or short term counselling therapy
2. Crisis listening
3. Coaching / mentoring
4. Home visit (counselling therapy) is available for the disabled, elderly, and housebound

I conduct face-to-face counselling in a safe and comfortable environment; alternatively Google or Skype video call, phone, and online chat counselling sessions are also available. Each session will last 50 minutes, once a week, over an arranged period and will start and end on time. If you decide that counselling is what you require, you will be allotted your own space to share without interruptions.

I aim to provide you with a trustworthy and confidential opportunity, for you to explore your thoughts and feelings in a secure environment. Your needs come first and therefore you will be helped through this process without judgement or giving advice. I will help you work toward self-awareness and help to promote change, with clarity of thought and positive decisions.

During therapy, you will work on building your self-esteem and self-confidence. You are responsible for yourself and your own actions and you have the freedom of choice. You will be allowed to work through issues in your own time and you will be helped to explore and work them through.

All work done with you will remain confidential, but I attend monthly supervision, where I discuss my client work with a qualified supervisor. However, to ensure confidentiality, clients are identified by using their initials or first name only.

Subsequently, I attend ongoing professional training and CPD, for continuous competency in how I work with clients.

For face-to-face counselling therapy, my counselling practice locations are in the following areas: EC2M, SE6, SE8, SE13, SE22, SE14, BR1, BR4,and BR5.

For travelling purposes, the locations are within the areas of: Bishopsgate, Bromley, Catford, Deptford, Lewisham, New Cross, Orpington.

The Practice in Lewisham / New Cross, is located near Goldsmith College and Lewisham College.

Alternatively, you can contact me for more information about: video call, phone, or online counselling (chat / email) which may probably suit your needs, as some clients may find that expressing concerns and/or questions in writing, is better for them and helps to organize and focus on a particular problem.

Please feel free to contact me with your inquiries or to book an initial 1/2 hr assessment.
You can expect to receive a detailed response within approximately 24-48 hours, of your initial contact.

Training, qualifications & experience

  • Professional Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling
  • Professional Diploma in Humanistic Integrative Counselling (Person-centred, CBT, Psychodynamic)
  • Crisis Counselling
  • Trauma Counselling
  • Coaching / Mentoring

Having several years experience working with clients, I have subsequently seen satisfactory results throughout the therapeutic process. Clients leave positive feedback at the end of the therapy, about the way I work with them, integratively. This gives me great encouragement that they are appreciative of the development of the working relationship and the positive outcome of the therapeutic process.
