Sharon Hills MBACP (Accred) Counsellor and Supervisor
Hello and welcome...
There are times when life can be stressful or there may be difficult situations where we find we are struggling to cope. I can provide a safe and confidential space, helping you to find more effective ways of dealing with life's challenges, and equipping you with the tools to do so.
I am a qualified, accredited Counsellor and Supervisor, and members of both the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP) and National Counselling Society (NCS). I work with people of various ages and lifestyles in a warm, respectful, non judgemental way. I have experience of generic counselling and welcome enquiries from people facing difficulties, no matter how big or small they feel their problems are. The first session is for you to discuss what is troubling you, how we might work together, and to see if I am the right person for you.
Currently, I work privately, and in an Agency offering NHS IAPT Psychological therapy services. This enables me to offer both short and long-term therapy to meet differing individual needs.
I am a partner in DS Counselling Training where it is a joy to be teaching the CPCAB Counselling Diploma to the next generation of counsellors and I find this very rewarding.
I work as a person-centred counsellor and can draw upon other theoretical approaches if appropriate. I have a particular interest in working with bereavement, self-confidence, relationships and anxiety. I am passionate about the work I do, and feel privileged to provide a space to help you find your way.
