Sharon Evans MBACP (Accredited / Registered).
During this time, I am working remotely. I am very used to working via Telephone, FaceTime, What's app and Skype. Please text me to arrange a session.
I offer counselling for anyone in need of help with emotional, personal or relationship problems. I work with adults facing personal challenges or suffering from stress, anxiety, depression, panic attacks, low self esteem, lack of self confidence, psychosomatic illness and insomnia.
I have a qualification in bereavement counselling and many years of experience in this area. I am also practised at providing counselling support for those with learning difficulties.
In addition, I have wide experience in counselling clients who have suicidal inclinations or diagnosed mental health problems.
Having worked and lived in ten countries over the years, I am very familiar with varied cultures and with issues derived from diversity.
I offer short or long-term therapy and tailor my theoretical approach to the needs of individual clients or couples.
My aim is to provide a safe and confidential environment where you can explore your thoughts and feelings. I can see clients in a consulting room in premises conveniently close to Kingston Station or online, using Skype, FaceTime or Whats App.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have completed a three-year British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)-accredited course of study leading to the award of Advanced Diploma in Integrative-Relational Counselling. Prior to becoming a counsellor I was a qualified general nurse and midwife.
I have fifteen years experience in counselling, and have trained with, and worked for, the Samaritans and Cruse Bereavement Service. I have also specialised in bereavement counselling for adults with learning difficulties.
My recent continuing professional development has focused on Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Attachment Theory and other relational issues, Domestic Abuse, Anxiety, Depression and Mindfulness.
I have also had experience in counselling those affected by major disasters including the Asian Tsunami and terrorist bombings.
Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
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.
