Sharon Boyd MBACP
Has something happened or is happening and your finding it difficult to cope?
Are you feeling anxious, sad, lonely, angry or just generally not you? Are these feelings making life increasingly difficult? Would you like to talk to someone who you can truly open up to, in confidence and without judgement?. Someone who will listen hear’ and understand you.
I genuinely want to help people feel better about themselves and lead a happier, healthier life. I can provide a safe and welcoming environment, giving you the space and time for you to explore all that you are feeling and experiencing, and together we may be able to make sense of those feelings, and enable you to see a light at the end of the tunnel.
I am a qualified Person Centred Counsellor and Psychotherapist providing counselling to adults 18 and over. I'm a registered member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists [BACP]. I have experience working with mild and moderate mental health issues including anxiety, low mood, relationship and family issues and bereavement.
I offer therapy face to face, online via Zoom or by telephone.
Please feel free to contact me to discuss the counselling process further and hopefully dispel any fears or worries you may have around entering therapy.

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.

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
