Sharon Taylor - Person Centred Counsellor & RDIst Coach (MBACP Reg.)
Do you have feelings of anxiety, stress or depression? Are you feeling stuck, confused, grappling with relationship issues and going round in circles? Do you want and need something to change? Then counselling can work for you.
I bring a passionate belief in our human capacity for growth and our potential to use those painful and critical moments as a catalyst to find more enriching and satisfying lives. I would feel honoured to be able to work alongside you on your personal journey. To do that, I will provide you with a warm, focused space to feel valued, heard and free to explore your worries and challenges without judgement. Together, we will find the right questions, answers and steps that enable you to move forward, to make the changes you need.
I am a qualified and experienced Counsellor & Relational Dynamics Coach working with a wide range of adults & young people. I work in private practice and with the national charity 'Action for Children' on their 'Breaking the Cycle' programme, providing counselling to families who have experienced domestic abuse.
I can offer straight forward talking therapy; working creatively when words are not enough; or integrating coaching techniques when you have identified your goal and need some help to move that forward. I will provide a focused space to talk freely, without judgement, offering empathy, acceptance and a listening ear so you can feel truly heard and understood. With the right conditions in place you can then find your own solutions, insights, life balance and develop your personal self-help toolkit for a better life.
To ensure my practice is ethical and of high quality I am BACP registered and work according to the Ethical Framework of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I also maintain my professional development to ensure my practice is relevant and meaningful.
I work with a wide range of issues including:
- Anxiety or Depression
- Relationship Issues
- Domestic Abuse
- Loss & Bereavement
- Work Related Stress
- Coping with Change
- Women and Change (for those specific moments in life such as becoming a parent, returning to work, empty nest, career challenges & the menopause)
I’m here to help, so take that next step towards a new beginning and get in touch by emailing me today.

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.

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
