About me and my therapy practice
COVID-19 is a really difficult and challenging time. Perhaps you have been shielding due to a health condition? Maybe you are feeling isolated or alone? Are a frontline worker who needs some support? Maybe you are feeling anxious, low or overwhelmed? Perhaps you are grieving for someone who was close to you?
Please know that you are not alone. Sometimes it's not easy to talk to someone who already knows you like a family member or a friend. Sometimes it's not easy to feel understood, really heard and fully accepted for who you are and how you are feeling.
I'm Sharon and I am a qualified counsellor with a diploma in Transactional Analysis, I am continuing my development in TA training as a Transactional Analyst (Psychotherapy).
I am committed to providing counselling and psychotherapy in a safe, confidential environment. I work with the aim of enabling you to enhance your life and to live it more fully.
I offer appointments online for video consultations. This doesn’t require you to download any apps. You will need an internet connection and a space where you will not be disturbed or overheard for the duration of our session.
I also offer appointments face to face from my practice in Kegworth. Kegworth is a village just 10 miles south of Nottingham city, on the border of Derbyshire and Leicestershire. The practice is located just off junction 24 of the M1 and is within easy reach of Loughborough, Shepshed, Derby and South Nottingham. Free off street parking is available. **Please note that access to the practice and my therapy room is via steps, if this is a problem for you, please contact me to discuss your requirements.**
Appointments are for 1 hour and are usually arranged weekly.
My first session
Making the decision to start counselling and psychotherapy is a big one, so firstly congratulations on making your first step in the process. Finding a therapist who you feel comfortable with is really important. I offer a free initial phone call for you to get a sense of me, to talk through the therapy process, what you would like to achieve from therapy, whether we are able to achieve this together and ask any questions you may have. There is no pressure to book an appointment at the end of this call. You are welcome to take some time to think about it if you need to.
At our first session, we will go through some paperwork together including an assessment on how you have been feeling over the last week.
