Sharon Hough Registered Member BACP, Integrative Person-Centred Counsellor
Hi my name is Sharon, thank you for taking the time to view my profile.
At some point in our life we may encounter problems, difficulties or long standing issues that make us feel unhappy, anxious or depressed, this at times can make us feel alone and not knowing which way to turn. Talking to a therapist can really help and is the first step of your journey, helping you to explore the possibilities to empower you to create positive change and begin to feel better.
Therapy offers a safe and comfortable space to allow you to grow and learn in an environment which is confidential and non-judgemental and delivered with care and compassion. I feel the therapeutic relationship is paramount to the success of therapy and having a therapist who listens and understands can make a huge difference.
I am fully qualified, and I work with individuals as well as couples, working with you at your pace as I believe there is no problem that is too large or too small.
I am an open, friendly and a trustworthy person and I am passionate about the service I deliver, I first came into contact with the field of Counselling upon having therapy myself; I feel this has greatly helped me to understand others and want to enhance other people's lives and make a difference like it has helped me.
I understand and have experienced that life can be unkind and unpredictable at certain points in our lives but whatever challenges you may be facing I can empathise and I am here to help. I can help with anxiety, depression, self-esteem, confidence issues, anger, divorce, bereavement and relationship difficulties and many other problems you may wish to overcome.
I work from two locations which are accessible yet discrete, with private rooms and flexible hours to suit you. Please feel free to call or e-mail me for a private consultation.

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.
