About me

Who am I?

I am Sheryl and I practice Person Centered Therapy.  I live in a village called Fenwick just outside Kilmarnock.  I live with my husband and children.  You can find out more about me on line.

What do I do?

I help clients with many different conditions including depression, anxiety and bereavement.  I help adults, young people and children.  I work from my home in Fenwick and from an address in Newton Mearns near Glasgow.  I provide person centered therapy which is essentially helping my clients to feel better about themselves and their lives.

What experience do I have?

I have wide and varied experience in this field.  I am a qualified teacher and foster carer in addition to my Counselling Qualifications.  I enjoy working with children and young people and draw on my teaching and caring experience.  I enjoy working with adults and draw on my extensive life experience of helping people.

Why am I a counsellor?

I became a counsellor to realise a life long ambition to really listen to others.  As a teacher and then an HR Manager I spent a lot of time listening and helping both children and adults.  The knowledge I acquired during my recent time at University cemented this dream and turned it into a reality.

Training, qualifications & experience

  • Following leaving school I attended Caledonia University where I gained a BA ( hons) Social Sciences.  In my final year I majored in Psychology and my desire to find out more about people began.
  • I then went to Jordanhill College of Education where I gained a Post Graduate Certificate in Primary Education.
  • I changed career to HR Manager and worked in Retail for 25 years.
  • I went back to University and gained a Post Graduate Certificate in Person Centered Counselling.

  • I enjoyed the experience so much I returned again and gained a Post Graduate Diploma in Person Centered Counselling as well.
  • I am currently a foster carer.

Other areas of counselling I deal with

I enjoy working with children and young people.  As a foster carer I have a lot of knowledge and experience to draw from.

I am available to see children within the school environment and would be happy to liaise with your child's school to discuss this further.

Most of the children I work with suffer from anxiety and/or panic attacks related to the complications of growing up in a world full of technology and high attainment expectations.

Fees

£40 per hour.

I offer a special day time rate of £35 per hour for clients attending between 10am and 2pm.

I offer further concessions where appropriate.

Home visits incur a rate of £50 per session.

Can I please ask for 24 hours notice of any cancellations?

Most clients come for between 8 and 12 sessions.  An 8 session block is £250, a 12 session block is £400 = both offers are for day time appointments at either address.

Further information
