Hello, I’m Sharon and I offer Integrative Counselling to adults. My modality is based on a Humanistic approach. I’m a registered member of the BACP (MBACP) and a Brainspotting Practitioner.
I mainly work with people who have experienced trauma and I’m currently undertaking a Post Graduate Diploma in Traumatology and PTSD. A trauma-focused approach to therapy has proven beneficial for those who are survivors of interpersonal violence or abuse; or those who have experienced or witnessed a traumatic event, such as an accident, incident, illness or loss.
Trauma symptoms can include flashbacks, panic attacks, hypervigilance, dissociation, nightmares, irritability and anxiety. In order to cope with this, individuals often develop negative coping strategies.
The type of counselling I use would be integrative; tailored to your needs and preferences. I often incorporate creative strategies such as art, craft, narrative or written, which can also work well online.
In my spare time I often have the pleasure of spending ‘Granny’ time with my grandchildren, and also find time to fit in my passion for walking in the beautiful countryside.
