Sharon Blight Person-Centred Counsellor MBACP (Accred) Specialising Couples Work
I am an experienced counsellor offering person centred counselling from a quiet location close to the centre of Bexhill. I specialise in couples counselling and am also happy to work with individuals. As well as face to face I offer online and telephone counselling (online only for couples)
I have significant experience with working with bereavement and specifically bereavement by suicide. I have also worked extensively with individuals experiencing suicidal ideation and their loved ones. Equally I have worked in many others areas including supporting individuals to cope with anxiety and depression and those affected by substance misuse.
I provide a safe, non-judgemental environment where you are able to explore feelings and thoughts. If you would like to know more about counselling and what I offer please look at my website; www.bexhillcounselling.com.
There are many life events that may bring an individual to counselling these might include loss (including bereavement), addiction issues, relationship problems and many more. Often it can be difficult to talk to family and friends; maybe you feel that they don’t understand or maybe you just don’t want to burden them. Talking to someone independent who is not involved in the situation can be beneficial and can make the situation easier to bear.
Working as a couple in counselling can be hard work but very rewarding. In relationships, patterns can be formed that are unhelpful to making positive changes and living happy lives. I help you to work on how to communicate more effectively and to break some of the harmful habits that you may have formed over your time together.
