Sharon O'Shea Counselling Services
I am a qualified Person Centred Counsellor based within the central Barnsley area.I qualified in 2007 and have experience of working within the voluntary sector and within my own private practice . I am a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy(MBACP) and I am bound by there ethical framework for good practice.
People access Counselling at a time in their life when they need support, understanding or to be heard. I help people to explore areas in their life that need attention in a safe, non-judgemental environment.
I am down-to-earth and approachable. I believe achieving a trusting therapeutic relationship between client and counsellor is essential.
On your first appointment we will meet to discuss what has brought you to Counselling, what you can expect from me as your Counsellor and work towards an agreement between ourselves with regards to the time/day we will meet and you can ask any questions you may have before deciding if you think we would be able to work together.
