About me

Hello, I’m Sharon. I would welcome the opportunity to support you at this time in your life. We all have problems that are unique to us. But together, we can find solutions that are right for you. Please get in touch, with no obligation, to see if I am the right counsellor for you.

Our relationship as client and counsellor will be non-judgemental, built on trust, confidential and centred on your needs.

I work with individuals and young people from two consulting rooms, in my private practice near Biggleswade and counselling rooms in the centre of Northampton.

I provide a safe, confidential space in which you can explore present or past difficulties.

It is never too late to change your life for the better.

Please get in touch if you want to arrange a session or would like more information.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and I adhere to their ethical guidelines in my practice.

I work with male and female adults, young people and children. I have Disclosure Barring Service (DBS) certification.

As well as my general private practice, I currently work as a counsellor for an agency supporting men and women from the age of 13 who are survivors of abuse.

Previously, I worked as a School counsellor supporting children with challenging issues in their lives and in an agency supporting clients with a range of issues including abuse, mental health, relationships, self-harm, and violence.

I regularly update my counselling knowledge and skills by participating in Continuing Professional Development (CPD) workshops.

Member organisations

BACP

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).
