Sharon Simms Reg MBACP, Dip He
Hi, I'm Sharon and I would like to welcome you to my page.
There are times in all of our lives where we find our emotions difficult to manage. Please take a moment to have a look through my profile to see if you feel I could help you in any way.
Many people consider counselling when they are experiencing an upheaval, difficult life changes or perhaps life has always felt a continuous struggle. This can leave you feeling lost, anxious, confused, and generally overwhelmed, not really knowing what to do. It can be difficult to talk about how you are feeling to those closest around you and it can help to talk to someone outside your social circle.
I am a qualified, experienced Psychodynamic, BACP Registered Counsellor and offer a safe, confidential, sensitive counselling service in Reigate, Redhill and Coulsdon.
I draw on several models and work in a variety of ways with both past and present experiences to best support and help you address your unique individual needs, whilst working at your pace.
Taking those first steps into counselling can be daunting. It is important that you find the right therapist for you and feel comfortable to be able to express difficult feelings. With that in mind, I offer an Initial 50 minuet assessment to allow us the opportunity to get to know each other and see if counselling is right for you at this time.
