Sharon Lewendon Counsellor & life Coach MBACP
At times we all need a bit of extra support and help with life's difficulties Counselling and life Coaching can help explore current and hidden feelings, empowering you to take control and move forward from whatever is troubling you.
Counselling or Coaching can help you gain clarity and direction
Life may be a struggle, you may feel as though you are going round and round in circles, stuck, with nothing making sense. Talking can really help, with the knowledge that I will listen without prejudice. I will endeavour to offer understanding and warmth in calm pleasant surroundings, empathy rather than sympathy and a promise to help you explore your feelings at your own pace.
Confidential & Non Judgemental
I can offer a safe, confidential, non judgmental environment for you to able to express your true feelings working specifically on areas you would like to change through exploration, mindfulness, positive psychology and discovery to improve and liberate.
As we are all unique I work integrative which means I use a range of different methods and theories dependent on your requirements and needs.
