Sharon Campbell - MBACP and BICA (British Infertility Counselling Association)
I'm a humanistic integrative counsellor and I offer a safe, confidential space for you to talk through whatever brings you to counselling. I believe that you have the full potential to overcome any emotional challenges you may be facing and that together we can untangle the busyness of your thoughts and make sense of everything. With growing self awareness comes the element of choice - which in turn will allow you to choose to make changes and live the life you want. It may be that you have goals you wish to achieve from the therapy or it may be that you are looking for a space to process past or present experiences.
I have approximately 7 years working experience as a therapist post qualification. I have worked with a broad range of presenting issues over the years and with clients from the ages of 8 years to 82 years. I also work as a Fertility Counsellor and have experience of working with individuals and couples who are going through assisted Fertility Treatment and whom may be experiencing a roller coaster journey of emotional challenges as a result of the process. I have around 15 years of experience of working within this field overall
My other specialised area of work is working with young people (from the age of 13 working with a full range of presenting issues. I also offer working creatively as an option including sand tray work and through art therapy methods.
Your first steps getting started?
I know it can be quite daunting to make the first step in accessing counselling support but why not just try and see if I'm the right therapist for you by either phoning me or e-mailing me to set up a free session initial session?
We can talk about what you would like to get out of counselling and if you are happy we will set up a second session. We can also decide how often you want to have your sessions - for instance weekly or fortnightly. We can work this out together.
I often hear from my clients that they feel nervous right at the beginning but that by the end of the first session - the nerves have disappeared and they feel motivated and ready to start on their therapy journey. I'm not a scary counsellor - so that's always a good start!

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.
