About me

Hello, My name is Sharon

I offer a professional, friendly and confidential counselling service in the Southport area.

I am fully qualified and experienced counsellor whose core approach is person-centred. I may use different approaches depending on what is best for the client.

Person-centred counselling is based on the quality of the relationship between the counsellor and client, and the importance of empathy, honesty trust and respect. I believe that if you, the client, are offered a genuine, warm and understanding counselling relationship you will be able to work through your problems, make your own choices and fulfil your potential. I strongly believe in this and strive to work alongside you to provide a relationship that is based on respect and trust.  I aim to provide an environment where you will not be judged and can explore whatever is on your mind in a safe and secure place.

I am located within  The Dairy Holistic Hub, 91A King Street, Southport. PR8 1LQ.

Free parking is available on Duke Street and other nearby roads.
