Sharon Worthington Registered Child and Adult Counsellor DipHE, MBACP
We are all on this journey through life, many different paths are taken some we choose to take and others that are out of our control, maybe you feel like you have lost your way and want to get back on track.
My philosophy in life is anything is possible, with the right mindset focusing on the positives you can achieve that goal, retraining the mind and thought process shifting the negative over thinking to a positive reality, repeating patterns so they eventually become the everyday normal.
We are all unique each with our own struggles whether it's anxiety, low self-esteem, lack of confidence, relationships, addiction, bereavement or abuse to name a few, it is how we deal with these challenges that may come our way.
I will support and guide you creating a safe confidential environment where together we can explore the difficulties you may be facing in the present moment or experiences from the past that have made you feel you have unfinished business and are seeking closure.
I will aim to sharpen your awareness showing you a new perspective and positive direction.

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.
