About me and my therapy practice
When looking to make sense of feelings and experiences and the impact they are having on your life and relationships, having a space which is safe and free from judgement is key. Connecting with the right counsellor for you is the first step.
My name is Lorna Sharp, a qualified Therapeutic Counsellor, registered with the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I work face-to-face in a dedicated counselling room in Sevenoaks, Kent and also via Zoom. My main approach is Humanistic, with a person-centred focus. This means that I put you, as the expert on yourself, at the centre of our work together.
People come to counselling for different reasons and at different stages of their life and I make no assumptions about what you want and need from counselling. I will listen and let you tell me what is important for you and what you are looking to make sense of. Creating a space where you can talk openly and honestly, with no judgement, I can support you in exploring any difficult feelings and how these are impacting on your life and relationships, gaining a better understanding of yourself as we walk the path together. Counselling offers you time you can dedicate to connecting with yourself and processing any challenging experiences and feelings.
I work with adults (18+) and am experienced in supporting individuals who are experiencing anxiety and depression, low self-esteem, relationship difficulties, disordered eating, sexual trauma, pregnancy, birth and loss, bereavement and loss, transitional life periods and life-limiting physical health conditions.
My first session
You may have been to counselling before or this may the first time you are looking to engage with a therapist. Either way, it can understandably be a difficult step to make. In the first instance, I offer a short free phone call to answer any specific questions and, if you choose, we can meet for an introductory session, where we can sit together and you can find out for yourself whether I could be the right counsellor for you. Introductory sessions and subsequent sessions are 50-minutes and are charged at £60.
