Hi my name is Sherylann, I`m a member of the BACP and the counselling that I offer is Person-Centred Therapy, CBT Therapy, Couples Therapy, Children and Young People.
When looking for a counsellor you may feel a range of different and perhaps overwhelming emotions. You may never have been to see a counsellor before and may feel quite nervous, not knowing what to expect. My role is to help you feel as safe as possible. We go at your pace and explore what you feel safe to bring.
Counselling would be a time set aside for you, it's your space where you can begin to regain awareness of what you need, in a safe, trusting and confidential setting. You may want to explore your thoughts, feelings and your behaviour; begin to get to know what it is that makes you happy, want you want from your life, achieve your life goals. I will give you this time so you can begin to understand yourself and gain the clarity that is yours.
I work with individuals and couples to help them overcome a wide range of problems. I have an understanding and experience of clients who have issues with depression, anxiety, stress, low self-esteem, addiction and relationships.
I use an integrated approach to counselling, using Person-Centred, cognitive behavioural therapy and couples therapy, the type of therapy will very much depend upon the individual person and their problems.
Working with children and young people finding that safe, trusting place for them to tell their story through play therapy.
My aim will be to aid people to understand and explore their difficulties in more depth and to identify unhelpful patterns of behaviour that may be affecting the way they live their lives.
I will carefully listen and try to understand exactly what emotions you are sharing, always aiming to be honest and non-judgemental, giving you a safe place to explore and share with care and respect.
I am a Member of the BACP. I am required to keep my training up to date, undergo regular supervision and to adhere to the BACP code of ethics.

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.
