About me

Hello, my name is Sharon Robinson and I am a BACP Accredited counsellor with over 17 years of counselling experience. I have a Post Graduate Counselling Diploma, am UKRCP Registered and a Reiki Master.

I set up Balance Counselling Service in 2002 and then in 2008 changed the name to Balance Counselling and Reiki. This enabled me to incorporate Reiki into my practise.

I originally came into counselling because of an injury that affected my mobility. However, I wanted to carry on working so decided to train as a counsellor. Little did I know then, that I had chosen a career that I would come to feel very passionate about. My passion for working with people with problems that are affecting their lives still continues to grow.

WHAT IS COUNSELLING AND WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT FROM IT

Counselling, for me, is an opportunity to work with you in a warm, respectful, confidential and professional manner; this enables you to explore your issues and find a way of resolving them. I believe that the relationship between a counsellor and client is very unique. You are able to talk and explore, safely and freely about the things that trouble you without being judged, criticised or told what to do.
Many clients report that this is the first time that they have been able to do this and can soon find themselves talking about issues that they thought they could never do.

I am an integrative counsellor and I use a mainly CBT and humanistic approach. As you are an individual, I will tailor the therapy to meet your needs at a pace that suits you.

FURTHER INFORMATION
I am able to offer appointments both during the day and evenings at a range of times to suit your needs. I work from home and there is normally parking available on the drive or very close by. There are only two steps into the house and there are handrails. A WC is on the ground floor, adjacent to the therapy room.

I welcome queries from both prospective clients, professionals' and the corporate sector, either by telephone or by email.

Counselling can be used in conjunction with other treatments or as a stand alone therapy.


REIKI
Pronounced 'Ray-key', meaning Universal Life Energy, Reiki was discovered in the nineteenth century by Dr Mikao Usui.

Reiki is becoming an increasingly popular alternative and non-invasive therapy using energy to heal on a physical, mental, emotional and spiritual level.

It is often revealed by clients to be a very relaxing experience.

This type of therapy can also be used for Chakra balancing.

EXPERIENCE

I believe it is a privilege to work with my clients' and be a part of a very special process. I will never take for granted the difficulties that clients' face every day; and their bravery when they embark on a counselling journey.
