About me and my therapy practice
Hello I’m Sharon, I am a naturally caring and supportive person who has a love of helping and connecting with others. I have extensive experience in supporting my clients with grief, bereavement and loss, alcohol and drug addiction and mental health, as well as an extensive list of other areas I work with.
I offer a general counselling service for adults. Counselling is about helping you make sense of your thoughts and feelings. I will provide you with a non-judgmental space where I hope you will feel comfortable to talk about what is on your mind; we can explore together your thoughts, feelings or anything you are struggling with in your life.
I am trained to integrate different counselling theoretical approaches within my work, some of these are person-centred, psychodynamic and existential. This means that dependent on your personal needs and requirements, I can be flexible and adapt around methods that can work for you. I sometimes bring Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and creative ways of working into my therapeutic practice.

I hold a Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling and am a member of The British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) who are a professional body for counsellors and psychotherapists practicing in the United Kingdom. I work within the BACP professional Ethical Framework, this means keeping myself and my clients safe by committing to their professional standards and good practice guidance for the Counselling Professions.
I worked at a grief and bereavement centre for over a year, counselling clients who have experienced various different losses in their lives. Grief, bereavement and loss can affect you emotionally, physically and spiritually and may bring up memories of other painful or difficult endings in your life.
I work with individual adults 18+ who are concerned about their drug or alcohol use and mental health, individuals affected by someone else’s drug or alcohol use and mental health. We explore past and present life events, work with difficult thoughts and feelings and develop strategies to improve the clients mental health and wellbeing.
I provide counselling to young people aged 12 – 24 through Surrey and Borders Partnership NHS Foundation Trust, in partnership with Mindworks Youth Counselling Service. We talk about anything that is worrying them, for example relationships, families, drugs, pregnancy, sexuality, stress, bullying, feeling low, anxiety, depression or anything else.
I am a BACP Spirituality Member. Spirituality encompasses belief, faith, religion and other ways in which we might experience deeper connection to and appreciation of self, other and the environment. Difficult times in our lives can evolve into a journey marked by spiritual awakening.
I am a listening volunteer and mentor with the charity Samaritans, I provide support to callers who are in emotional distress, struggling to cope and at risk of suicide or harm.
