About me


Counselling is the opportunity to be really listened to. My job is to be there with you, really hear you, care, support you and sometimes to bounce things back to you, which can often result in us making links from the past to what is happening in the present. Most commonly, our past experiences can have a huge impact on our current thoughts, feelings and behaviour as well as our relationships, which all too often result in difficulties with our significant others.

Life can sometimes be hard and this can cause us to feel overwhelmed and anxious.
This can be due to unexpected circumstances happening in our lives...things beyond our control, or sometimes things that we can control, but find it difficult to change.
During these times, we could all do with a little extra help. Help from someone who's on our side, who can understand where we are and who can give us what we need to manage the feelings we are having and work towards positive change.


Relationships can be hard, easy and everything in between. During the difficult times I can be with you as a couple and support you in getting what you both need from each other and what the  relationship needs to get back on track. I can help navigate the choppy waters and facilitate the difficult conversations. I have worked with many couples who’s relationships have hugely benefited from couples therapy. 

My name is Sharon Peach and I am a qualified Humanistic Counsellor and accredited member of the BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy).  I am also a student member of COSRT (College of Sexual and Relationship Therapists)

My reason for training to be a counsellor was due to my own experience of how powerful counselling can be when in personal crisis. My own life went through a very turbulent time some years ago with a variety of life issues happening in a relatively short space of time. I was completely overwhelmed and needed an anchor. My therapy not only enabled me to cope with what was happening at the time, but gave me the tools to help me cope with future situations. I also gained a huge amount of self awareness of my past and how this affects my everyday life, from dealing with stress, my style of resolving conflicts to how I function in relationships.

Now I would like to help others, in the same way that counselling helped me.
I can help you with various life issues such as:

  • Relationship issues
  • Separation and divorce
  • Anxiety, depression
  • Confidence and self esteem
  • Family issues
  • Affairs and betrayal
  • Major life decisions
  • Phobias and fears
  • And many more.

I am currently studying to work in the field of Psychosexual and Relationship therapy.  Therefore I also work with presentations such as Erectile dysfunction, Rapid or delayed ejaculation, Vaginismus, Dyspareunia, Loss of desire, Sexual health, Arousal issues and better communication in the bedroom.

My aim is to build a trusting working relationship with you, the client. By offering you time to off load, think, speak and explore what is concerning you, I aim to assist you in managing your life in a more positive way.
Whether this is due to personal crisis, behaviour issues or for personal development, I can help you to work through your difficulties by being with you in your storm and working with you to calm the waters.
ogether we can uncover the problems and adjust thinking/decisions/patterns of behaviour etc accordingly.

Furthermore, I believe we all have our own inner resources to help us through our difficult times in life. I'd like to help you find yours.

Member organisations

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
