Sharon Simms Reg MBACP, Dip He
Many of us at times, experience emotional pain and distress, which can begin to feel overwhelming. Life experiences can leave us feeling lost, anxious, and confused. At these times, you may feel you need some professional help and support.
Counselling can provide you with the support and opportunity to understand yourself more clearly, and to find ways of dealing with the issues and the difficulties you are facing in a confidential, safe, non-judgmental environment.
I am a qualified Psychodynamic Counsellor registered with the BACP. I work with individuals on a one-to-one basis, once a week in a therapeutic environment offering open-ended therapy or time-limited/problem focused therapy. I have therapy rooms in the town centre of Redhill, and Coulsdon, as well as Godstone, where I offer a range of appointment times. Each weekly session lasts for fifty minutes.
I offer an initial appointment, where you can ask the questions you might have about Counselling, it is also an opportunity for us to get to know each other and see if counselling is right for you at this time.
Whatever difficulty you are experiencing, Counselling has the potential to offer you a place where you can be understood and heard, safe in the knowledge that your words and feelings will be treated with dignity and respect.
