Grace-Anne Sharpe-Young MSc.ICP. (MBACP); BSc. Hons. (BPS); DipHyp. (DNLP.GQHP)
As a compassionate focused therapist I integrate evidence-based approaches such as Person-Centred Therapy, Attachment Theory and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) that I can tailor specifically to your needs. Person-Centred Theory enables you to feel respected, heard and valued; Attachment Theory supports you to understand your core self from childhood, and CBT empowers you to alter overwhelming negative thoughts and issues in a more positive way.
Clinical hypnotherapy is an evidence-based therapeutic method that induces deep relaxation, manage levels of stress and anxiety, and is effective in reducing/eradicating phobias & fears, unhealthy habits (such as over eating or smoking) and increase positive thinking.
Life changes can cause stress and anxiety which may impact your mental and physical health. Talking helps because it brings cathartic relief through being heard, valued and accepted during times when you may need it most. I offer a warm and safe environment in which we can both work together to explore solutions that can heal your emotional distresses.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
