Therapeutic Services


Helping you to work with youself to understand and confront difficulties to ensure you are able to make decisions to move forward in a positive and constructive manner.

The aim of the counselling is to support a person or persons in an holistic and dynamic process which allows – in an environment of trust – space to explore thoughts and feelings and confront difficulties, which are causing distress or concern.


What to expect


When you meet with Sharon she will be working hard to build a trusting relationship with you. Boundaries of confidentiality will be discussed and the process of counselling will be explained. Once confidentiality is agreed the counselling process will begin. Sharon is skilled in a number of counselling techniques including cognitive behavioural therapy, person centred counselling and emotive behavioural therapy. As the therapeutic process deepens Sharon will identify which approach is best suit to you.
