About me

Unsure what to do next? Feeling stuck, anxious, depressed and in need of help? Having relationship difficulties or facing critical changes in your life that you need to make sense of? Take a breath......get in touch, and feel supported as we work together to find the answers you need to move forward.

Welcome, I'm Sharon Taylor and I offer counselling in a confidential, non-judgmental, safe and friendly environment. I work according to the Ethical Framework of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) as a qualified counsellor and relational dynamics coach. I work with individuals and organisations, adults, children and young people facing a wide range of difficulties.

As a therapist and arts graduate I bring many years of experience working in a diverse range of therapeutic and learning environments. I work responsively and creatively to meet your need and this may mean: working at a safe metaphoric distance when feelings and experiences are just to difficult to face head on; integrating coaching techniques when you have a clear goal but need some help to map the journey; or simply providing the right conditions and space to talk freely, without judgement, to find a new perspective and move forwards gaining greater insight, expression, sense of self and wellbeing.

At the heart of my practice lies a passionate belief in the individual, our capacity for growth and our potential to use those painful and critical moments as a catalyst to find more enriching, creative and satisfying lives. I would feel honoured to be able to work alongside you on your personal journey to do just that.

I work with a wide range of issues including:

  • Relationship Issues
  • Loss and Bereavement
  • Redundancy
  • Coping with Change
  • Women and Change (for those specific moments in life)
  • "Empty nest syndrome"
  • Anxiety or Depression
  • Work Related Stress

I’m here to help so take that breath, that next step towards a new beginning and get in touch by emailing or phone as above leaving a message.
