Sharon Thomas MBACP , Suicide first aider
Hello, thank you for stopping to look at my profile. Finding a counsellor can be daunting, there may be questions you need answers to, so let me start by telling you about myself. I am a friendly easy going person who prides themselves on making my clients feel welcomed and relaxed. When you are with me you will find me easy to talk to, and will feel heard and valued for the person you are. There will be no judgement or criticism from me, only me seeing your world through your eyes.
Trauma and Anxiety are some of the reasons why people come to counselling. I have experience with these as I work for New Pathways and Mind. I can help you by giving you the tools to deal with your Trauma. These will keep you in a safe and stable place. If in time you wish to discuss the trauma, you will be able to do so by using these tools and stop yourself before you fall into that deep hole. My main focus will be on helping you to live your life in the here and now and not stuck in an anxious, worried state of mind. Trauma can be emotional, mental, physical or sexual. It all has the ability to harm us, leaving us living in fear, and not be able to be the people we want to be. I can help you by looking at what has happened, past or present, exploring how it has made you feel, and understanding how it’s affected you. This will help you to go forward as the person you are today . I can’t promise to fix all of your problems, but I promise you won’t have to face them alone.

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.
Accredited register membership

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).
