Sharon Edwards Counselling Dip.Couns, MBACP
Hello and welcome. Knowing ourselves at a deeper level can enable us to make better decisions in life. I believe the therapeutic relationship offers the potential for positive change. My approach is humanistic, with a Person Centred influence.
Counselling can enable you to talk about difficult situations and feelings with a trained practitioner. It is a process that may help with exploring your thoughts and emotions and gaining self-awareness. I am a qualified counsellor offering competitively priced, short-term or open-ended, one to one counselling for adults in a safe, confidential and supportive space. I also have a Foundation Course for Awareness in Bereavement Care and attended seminars for Compassion Focussed Therapy and Counselling for Depression. I am committed to my ongoing continuous professional development.
Having extensive experience of working with people who have complex needs, I realised I could bring these skills to my work in counselling. Some of the difficulties I work with include depression; anxiety; stress; losses in life such as loss of a relationship, direction, identity or career; bereavement; low self-confidence; low self-esteem; mental abuse; panic attacks and life changes.
You can phone or email me to set up an initial session where we can talk about what you would like to achieve out of counselling. If you are happy to continue we will set up further regular sessions.
As a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), I adhere to their Ethical Framework for the Counselling Professions.
