My name is Sharna Bell, I am a qualified Counsellor offering both Individual and Couples Counselling sessions. I collaboratively work with clients, offering a safe and confidential space for people to talk through issue(s) with the aim of supporting them to move towards their goals. I have a vast amount of experience working with individuals /couples experiencing all types of problems. Some example of these are: depression, anxiety, bereavement, relationship issues, domestic abuse, offending behaviour, addiction and anger management. My experience and training mean that people feel supported and comfortable working with me.
I value the therapeutic relationship I develop with clients and find that I can work with individuals and couples in a meaningful and productive way as I offer support, empathy and unconditional positive regard. If you think that you would like to work with me, please email or call me to arrange an appointment
Training, qualifications & experience
I have 20 years of experience working for the Probation Service. I was trained by the Home Office to work with individuals & groups to deliver accredited programmes to people convicted of a range of offences. These programmes were based on Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Coaching, Motivational Interviewing and Solution Focused techniques.
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.
