She works on a short and long-term basis with people to help them overcome barriers and gain invaluable self-awareness.
Sharon is an integrative counsellor combining the core conditions of person centred approach with the in-depth theory of psychodynamic approach. Psychodynamic approach is her main theoretical framework which she uses to help people explore their past to understand who they are now. She recognises the importance of revisiting childhood and previous experiences to understand how they behave, react and feel towards present situations. Sharon believes it’s important for a person to understand themselves fully to take control of their life moving forward. Using her theoretical knowledge of Attachment, Inner Child, Dream Analysis and her counselling experience she helps people explore any unmet needs and gain valuable insight.
Sharon can help individuals and couples to explore their life, relationships or look at specific events in detail, providing an opportunity to gain self-awareness, personal development and promote change. Sharon understands that most relationships will come under stress at some point for several different reasons. She provides a safe, neutral environment, to discuss any issues within these relationships. Sharon allows everyone to have the opportunity to allow their thoughts and feelings to be heard and understood. Her aim is to help clients gain insight into their relationship(s), improve communication, reduce conflict and enable possible resolution of differences.
The relationship between herself and individuals is integral to her counselling, she offers a quiet, relaxed place to talk and feels everyone deserves to feel listened to and valued.
