Chris Sharp - MBACP, PG Dip. Counselling, BSc. Psychology
Hi, I’m Chris Sharp – a fully-qualified and BACP registered counsellor and psychotherapist.
Life is weird, confusing and difficult sometimes.
It's no surprise that people experience anxiety, depression, phobias, addictions and other difficulties. Not to mention tough periods of life, such as bereavement, affairs, divorce, post-natal depression, and other family issues.
Counselling offers a space – peaceful, understanding, safe, confidential, and non-judgemental – to explore some of these difficulties on your own terms.
In counselling, you are in control. You are the expert on your life.
I can help by offering an objective perspective, identifying patterns of thinking and behaviour, asking questions that help deeper exploration, and help create new meaning in your life.
My counselling style is based on person-centred therapy and is very adaptable. Your needs, your difficulties, and your way of communicating are unique and you deserve a unique approach based around you.
