I’m Sharon, a counselling professional dedicated to listening to you and working alongside you on your journey. Many people are experiencing anxiety or depression as a result of the pandemic, while existing or underlying problems may feel more pressing for others. We can all feel overwhelmed at times. Sometimes it’s hard to see how our situation can improve and we continue to repeat patterns that no longer help us.
How Counselling Can Help:
Counselling can help to support you when life gets difficult. If you are struggling with anxiety, depression, stress, bereavement, relationship breakdowns, health or family problems, even taking the first step and talking about it can be an enormous help and can begin to ease your mind.
I work as an integrative counsellor which means I use a combination of approaches to make sense of what you bring and tailor those approaches to your personal needs. I aim to offer a holistic listening, supportive and collaborative relationship to incorporate your mental and emotional health in a safe, calm, nurturing and confidential environment, allowing you to talk through any difficulties or issues to identify ways in which you can improve or make changes.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a qualified Clarkson trained Integrative Counsellor. As a member of The British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy, I adhere to their Ethical Framework. My work is regularly supervised and I keep up to date with therapeutic developments by attending relevant courses and events.
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.

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
