About me

Welcome to my page my name is Sharon Doherty, when working with clients and supervisees I believe the most important part of the counselling process is building therapeutic relationships and alliances to create a safe space to explore sensitive and complex issues.

As a counsellor my specialism is supporting clients living with the ongoing physical and mental health issues attributed to an autoimmune condition. I have also developed a particular interest in helping clients recover from the complex nature of narcissistic relationships.

Individual Counselling

My passion for counselling adults and young people with a range of presenting issues comes from the personal challenges I have faced in life and learning to manage and balance  a range of emotional and practical needs to overcome difficult situations.

Child & Adolescent Counselling

I work in age appropriate and creative ways that suit each individual, this could include: drawing, modelling clay, Russian dolls, buttons, writing poems or songs and when preferred I also use suitable talking interventions when required.

Family Therapy

Family counselling can be a useful place to explore and better understand family dynamics and behaviours. There are many ways differences between adults and children within your family can show up.  Time in family therapy can be a safe place to explore and identify these differences and begin the process of working together to find an appropriate solution. 

Therapeutic Yoga

Is a one to one trauma informed and embodied approach that integrates counselling and specific yoga practices to regulate the autonomic nervous system. This is especially useful when working with a range of physical and mental health issues.

COSCA
Counselling & Psychotherapy in Scotland (COSCA)

COSCA is the professional body for counselling and psychotherapy in Scotland, and seeks to advance all forms of counselling and psychotherapy and the use of counselling skills by promoting best practice and through the delivery of a range of sustainable services.

BACP
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Supervision

In person
Online

As a supervisor I work with supervisees in ways that develop and expand their working edge of self-awareness around transference, counter-transference, ethical dilemmas, safeguarding, theoretical knowledge, professional boundaries and legal issues and that may arise when working with clients.
