About me and my therapy practice

Hi I'm Sharon, I have been seeing clients for 13yrs in a variety of settings including the voluntary, public and private sectors. I currently work part time for the NHS, Women's Aid and as a freelance counsellor using BSL for Sign Health. Previous work history has included 10yrs as a therapist with Telford Mind. I also managed a team of 12 counsellors for Telford Mind for approx. two years prior to joining the NHS. My diploma primarily focused on three theoretical perspectives; Person Centred, CBT and TA. I then undertook an advanced certificate in Mental Health and Deafness at The University of Birmingham. I am committed to CPD and more recently have trained in DIT (dynamic interpersonal therapy) and undertaken a diploma in trauma. I have attended a variety of short training courses/workshops including; Brief Solution Focus Therapy; Drama Therapy; Play Therapy; Working with Shame; Introduction to Gestalt. Whilst having a range of theoretical perspectives to draw upon I remain Person Centred at my core. Using other techniques dependant on the client and the issues that they present with. For the last 10 years I have also had a small private practice working as an integrative practitioner, with people with varying issues and mental health concerns. I am happy to see clients at my own practice and will consider travelling where/when appropriate to see clients. I look forward to hearing from you
