I offer non-judgemental and effective counselling to help you improve the quality of your life
We all experience difficult times in our lives and in our relationships, and sometimes we can end up feeling overwhelmed, lost, or with a sense that we are treading water or going around in circles.
If this sounds familiar to you, you'd like to regain balance, or you would like to gain some clarity and understanding about yourself and your relationships, now maybe the time to consider having some counselling to support you.
** Counselling offers you a space to be heard **
I have been working as a qualified counsellor for the past 12 years, and I regularly help people experiencing;
Adjustment difficulties after significant life events
A general sense of dissatisfaction, unrest or sadness
I work with a wide range of issues and I have a particular interest in supporting people who feel conflicted or at a crossroads in life.
Together, we can give you the chance to take ownership of your life, find your direction, and discover a deeper sense of personal fulfilment and purpose.
Counselling can be an empowering and life changing process.
I will respond to counselling enquiries during the week of 30/7/18
My name is Sharon Nicholson and I am a BACP Registered and Accredited Counsellor in Weymouth, Dorset.
I recognise that the search for a counsellor can sometimes be a confusing process, and it can take courage to make that initial contact.
I'm a very down-to-earth person and I offer you a warm and friendly space to come to talk through what is happening for you.
I aim to make the process of counselling as rewarding as possible for you, and I focus on helping you to gain maximum therapeutic benefit.
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.
My practice is well-respected locally and I receive regular referrals and recommendations from professionals, local business, and others who have grown to know my work.
I have gained a wealth of experience with my client work, and in my position of Senior Counsellor in the NHS, I also held the role of Clinical Supervisor - supervising the work of other counsellors.
I was selected to train and specialise in Counselling for Depression (CfD) during my work with the NHS, and subsequently went on to qualify as a Counselling for Depression Practitioner and Supervisor.
I am listed as a CfD Supervisor with the Metanoia Institute, London, and I continue to offer supervision to CfD counsellors and those who have a Person-Centred Experiential practice.
