Sharon Fereday MBACP CBT ACCRED therapist, EMDR & supervisor.
Offering online sessions via face time, WhatsApp video, Skype or Zoom.
I am a BACP accredited CBT Therapist, EMDR practitioner and qualified supervisor with experience or working with adults and children of all ages.
My practice is accessible for those living in the Stratford-upon-Avon, Bideford, Redditch, Worcestershire, Warwick, Leamington and Coventry areas, just off the A46 in both Warwick and Stratford-upon-Avon.
The Service I offer
Qualified in CBT and EMDR I work electively, offering a confidential, one to one service from various styles of counselling. I believe that it’s important to find a way of working that best suits my client in order for them to feel empowered to move forward. I do ask you to do work at home between session, which both aids and enriches our sessions, and enables you to practice the skills we discuss in the session.
My passionate belief is that everyone has the skills, right and the ability to a fulfilled and happy, contented life. I believe that with a safe place to explore your potential in a none judgemental, confidential, relaxed, and supportive environment you will be able to find the answers you need to move forward to a rewarding and happy future.
You may be exploring therapy for a number of reasons, trying to cope with the loss of a partner or family member, relationship issues, or trying to make sense of something which has happened during your childhood.
You may be fed up with being angry or feeing low and have a need to identify and change what you might think is unhealthy behaviour. You may not be clear about the reasons for starting therapy at all and that’s okay. Many of us experience a general sense of unhappiness, anxiety, low mood, stress or dissatisfaction and use therapy as a way of finding a way through it.
There are no right or wrong reasons to use therapy It just takes willingness to make changes and look inside yourself for the answers you already hold.
I can help you do this and working together we can explore them and find alternative ways to view things. Making sense of your actions and personal understanding go a very long way to enjoying life and fulfilling your true potential

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.
