My name is Sharon, a professional counsellor running my private practice in Holmfirth. Previously working as a Samaritan, I found the work rewarding and desired to work with others at a more in-depth, personal level. This is what lead to my training as a therapist, and qualifying as a counsellor.
As an Integrative therapist, I believe that one glove does not fit all. We will explore the best way forward for you, to ensure psychological and emotional growth, therapy will be created for your individual needs, with a clarity of what you can expect to achieve. The path you wish to take towards fulfilment will be with me being there with you every step of the way.
I work with individuals to help them find a path which brings a greater fulfilment to their lives. Whatever the issue, counselling gives you a safe space to explore where you are in your life, how you got there and how you can move forward. Many people seek help for a wide range of problems, you are not alone.
Making the first contact and even choosing to contact a therapist can be difficult. I understand it can be a daunting experience due to the number of therapies available, along with the uncertainty of which therapy will work best for you. If you have any questions or to book an appointment, please do get in touch.
Training, qualifications & experience
- Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling
- Diploma in CBT

I also work at a charity providing the community of Brighouse with counselling, where I work with a diverse range of clients and issues. Above all, I have immense life experience with a deep understanding of the difficulty’s life may bring. Accessing personal therapy was a life-changing experience for me and left me with such a belief in the therapeutic process that I went on to become a therapist to help others in achieving fulfilment.
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.
