Sharon Roberts Reg. MBACP
Hi, I am Sharon and I am a lead therapist at I Need Therapy (www.ineedtherapy.co.uk). You may have come here seeking support for a specific issue or have had a significant event in your life such as separation or loss. You may not be in a crisis situation and are not sure what the issue may be. Perhaps you just need a space that is non-judgmental and empathic to talk through your own thoughts and feelings. If this is something that you feel you would like to try then please contact me to discuss how I may help.
I am based in a new community development - Peckham Levels - in Peckham (SE15) which is in South East London. It is easily accessible from central London and most locations across town, with excellent links via train, bus and London Overground.
I offer my clients a supported, non-judgmental space in which it is safe to be who they are. My work is client led and non-directive and I work with the person to allow them the opportunity to explore their feelings and experiences.
Training, qualifications & experience
I'm a qualified integrative counsellor and this means I do not follow one particular theory or model of working. I feel that each person is an individual and therefore work with clients to explore ways of working which would be suited to them and their circumstances. I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and work according to their Ethical Framework for the Counselling Professions.
I have experience working with various issues including relationships within family & work settings, domestic violence, coping with illness, loneliness, problems with confidence, self-esteem and all aspects of mental wellness.
Having trained and worked with the St Christopher's Hospice & Bromley Bereavement Service teams I have extensive experience as a therapist working with clients who have suffered bereavement. This includes loss through long and short-term illness, sudden death, miscarriage and suicide. Whilst working at the Hospice I also completed their training in working with childhood bereavement for their Candle team.
I have also worked with parents and carers who are having difficulties with a young person in their care including violence, police and social service involvement and communication.
I have knowledge of working with issues around identity, sexuality and gender and have undergone further training with leading trans organisation Gendered Intelligence. I completed their training course for counsellors and therapists - Working alongside Trans and Gender Variant people and I am registered on their Directory for Therapists and Counsellors.
