Sharon Nicholson Counselling in Weymouth

Invest in yourself

Whether we are experiencing dissatisfaction or distress, we all have our own stories and sometimes we need to be deeply heard in order to make sense of our experiences and find out what we really need. 

Counselling is an investment in yourself as the resources you gain, and the changes you can make, can be long-lasting. Be mindful to take your time, and choose a counsellor who has the relevant experience and training to best support you with your needs

Professional Support

Sharon Nicholson Registered, MBACP, Accred

My name is Sharon Nicholson and I am a BACP Registered and Accredited Counsellor in Weymouth, Dorset.

I offer effective 1:1 counselling to help you to feel better about yourself and improve your quality of life.  

Professionally trained in London and the South West, I work with people from across Dorset and the surrounding counties.

I established my Private Practice in 2007, and alongside this, I worked as a High Intensity Counsellor in the NHS for 10 years. 

I am also a Clinical Supervisor - supervising the work of other counsellors. 

My post qualification training with The Metanoia Institue, London, allowed me to specialise in Counselling for Depression (CfD) within the NHS. 

I have also helped many people experiencing anxiety, adjustment difficulties after significant life events and a general sense of dissatisfaction or unrest with their lives.

Are You Ready for Change?

There is always hope

I feel very privileged to be doing the work that I have a passion for. 

I have had some excellent training and I enjoy sharing my experience and learning to help others to make a positive difference to their lives.

 ★ Together, we can help you through difficult life experiences. 

 ★ You can gain insight into your relationships and patterns of behaviours - this awareness will give you choices. 

 ★ You can learn to be less self-critical and make choices that are empowering.
