Sharon Couzens Dip.couns MBACP (REG) MNCS (ACC) : Children & Adult Counsellor
Sharon Couzens Dip.couns MBACP (REG) MNCS (ACC) - TFT Algorithm Practitioner
Hello and thank you for visiting my profile.
Taking the first step can be a difficult and daunting experience, especially when there seems to be a stigma attached to counselling. This is a misunderstanding that it is just for people with severe mental health illness. There are many different levels of mental health needs, as we are individual and one therapy does not fit all.
I combine different counselling styles in order to be flexible and provide you with specific, individual counselling to suite your needs and to move you forward from where you are now to where you would like to be.
I have experience with working with children, young people and adults within the educational environment, private practice, groups and NHS IAPT.
Counselling can be a short or long term intervention and can help with exploring your thoughts and feelings in a confidential safe space. I can offer personalised counselling and support for Anxiety, stress, Depression, Relationships, work-life stress, organisation difficulties or enhancing confidence and self worth to overcome barriers or obstacles that obstruct day to day life.
Location: I am located within the triangle of Ramsgate, Sandwich, Dover and Canterbury, being within a 15 mile radius.
