Dr Rosie Sharville
I am a qualified Clinical Psychologist (HCPC registered), with a special interest in working with young adults and adolescents. I offer a non-judgemental space to explore life's difficulties with the aim of empowering a person to understand themselves and explore alternative ways of navigating their world.
As a member of the LGBT community and a specialist in sexuality and gender identity, I hope that LGBT+ clients can feel reassured of a safe space, without judgement or expectation.
My key areas of work are with:
- Anxiety (including generalised anxiety; social anxiety; fears and phobias; obsessions and compulsions)
- Low Mood/ Depression
- Exploratory/ existential questioning and identity formation
- Gender identity and sexuality
- Sexual health and anti-stigma work
I take an integrative, equalities-based, affirmative approach and appreciate both the role of personal agency, as well as the importance of acknowledging the impact of societal expectations and inequality.
My primary therapeutic modalities are: systemic, CBT, narrative, and compassion-focussed.
At present, I am offering only online (video) sessions, out-of-hours (evenings and weekends).

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
Health and Care Professions Council
The HCPC are an independent, UK-wide health regulator. They set standards of professional training, performance and conduct for 16 professions.
They keep a register of health professionals who meet their standards, and they take action if registered health professionals fall below those standards. They were created by a piece of legislation called the Health Professions Order 2001.
Registration means that a health professional meets national standards for their professional training, performance and conduct.

I charge £90/ hour but offer a sliding scale if needed.
