About me

My name is Sharron and this is my mischievous dog Bella. Many years ago a number of significant events resulted in me seeking help and support from a Counsellor. This support enabled me to gain a greater understanding about who I am and how my experiences have shaped me. It also provided me with the skills that I needed to manage these experiences and develop healthier coping strategies to move forward with my life in a positive way.

These experiences combined with my passion to support others, led me to under take my own counselling training. As a Counsellor I feel privileged in the work that I do and will always ensure that I do my absolute best when supporting others. I am a warm and empathic individual and I have been told that this is evident in my counselling style. I am also a good listener as I genuinely understand the importance of being heard. In addition I am open and honest in my approach and will remain non judgemental in all that I hear.

I have been working as a Counsellor for many years, during this time I have supported GPs by providing a counselling service to accommodate the needs of their practice. In addition I now work as a full time independent Counsellor in my own private practice based in Newark, supporting individuals with a wide array of presenting difficulties.

I also offer Home visits.

In addition I also offer counselling via online video calls, telephone or other forms of technical communication.

Training, qualifications & experience

I hold an Advanced Diploma in Counselling, a Diploma in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and a Diploma in Art and Creative Therapy.

I also specialise in Anxiety Disorders.

I am a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy and I am fully insured.

I attend monthly supervision and I am committed to continuous professional development and so attend courses and workshops to further expand my knowledge and skills.

Member organisations

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Accredited register membership

"I came to see Sharron as I had been battling with depression for 5 years and medication alone wasn't freeing me of the over consuming emotions. I was recommended to see Sharron but if I'm honest was skeptical of counselling at first, mainly due to not knowing a lot about it. However Sharron saved me, saved me from the darkness and consuming feelings. I now fully understand why I had become so unwell and most importantly I have been able to let go of certain events in my past with the help from Sharron and have the strength and coping methods to control my emotions. I now live a very different life, a bright and hopeful one." (Anon)

"Sharron is a genuine person, someone who has the natural ability to really listen and make you feel totally at ease. I initially struggled to open up and say all the things that was racing through my mind, Sharron never rushed me and her patient, understanding and empathic nature paid off. In just a few months I was able to fully open up, gain knowledge of what events in my past and present day was making me so anxious and now with many coping methods under my belt I feel in control of my anxiety! Even now many years on, I still think of my sessions with Sharron and smile." (Anon)

"As an elderly gentleman, I didn't know what to expect on my way to my first session with Sharron. However I had promised my family I would go and see her just 11 months after loosing my beloved wife. Skeptical I was with how Sharron could help me with the loss and pain I was feeling, but with Sharron I cried and laughed over beautiful memories and had found a way to live on without my beautiful wife beside me. So when Sharron asked if I wanted to write her a testimonial I jumped at the chance, as I cant express how beneficial talking to Sharron was for me at that time. I hope that more people choose to put them selves first and talk through their problems with this lovely lady, even though at the beginning it may be hard to believe that anything or anyone can help."

Wheelchair user access
Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
