Invest in yourself

How may I help you?

* I am currently offering all counselling sessions via video or telephone call *

Do you feel that talking to someone may help you right now?

Maybe you are feeling anxious, low in mood and are seeking peace of mind?

Jon Kabat-Zinn, founder of Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) said,

“If we hope to go anywhere or develop ourselves in any way, we can only step from where we are standing. If we don’t really know where we are standing… We may only go in circles…” 

Gain some relief

Counselling with me addresses what is currently happening for you, and gives you the opportunity to gain some relief from what you are experiencing, and what you may have minimised, or buried inside. 

Awareness gives you choices 

You have the chance to better understand what your experiences mean to you, understand your triggers, and learn new ways of coping.

You have the chance to to improve the relationship that you have with yourself, and others.

I have been working as a fully qualified counsellor since 2006, and I regularly help people experiencing difficulties with;


  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Bereavement
  • Loss
  • Relationships
  • Mid-life 
  • Menopause
  • Long-term health issues 
  • Feelings of anger,  guilt or shame
  • Trauma 
  • Childhood Sexual Abuse 
  • Domestic Abuse
  • Low self-esteem
  • Work related stress 
  • Coping with change

Safe Space

Counselling offers you a safe space to explore your experiences without being judged. 

You do not have to wait until you feel that you can no longer cope as counselling can help to prevent you reaching that point. If you have already reached that point, please reach out for support now.

Together, we can give you the opportunity to find some clarity and take ownership of your life. 

"Thank you for providing such a calming environment for me to talk about and work through the experiences I was having and have had. I felt listened to and encouraged to try different ways of looking at very well-worn problems. Whilst it was hard work, it was so worth it for the strength and confidence I gained over the months talking with you – each session I came away with new ideas and insights and this is reflected in the much healthier, more proactive frame of mind I have now. I’ve learnt a lot and I’m truly grateful for your support" ~ Client feedback

Professional Support

Sharon Nicholson, Registered Member MBACP (Accred)

Therapeutic Counsellor & Clinical Supervisor

Allow me to introduce myself...

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

(*British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy)

I work with individuals on a 1:1 basis, either face-to-face or via video or telephone call.

I recognise that the search for a counsellor can sometimes be a confusing process, and it can take courage to make that initial contact. 

Finding someone who you feel comfortable with is really important, so I suggest that you choose a counsellor who you feel drawn to, with the relevant qualifications and experience.

I'm a very down-to-earth person and I offer you a warm and friendly space to talk through what is happening for you. 

My extensive additional training also allows me to draw on aspects of different models of therapy to work in the most effective way with you. 

I aim to make the process of counselling as rewarding as possible for you and I offer an optional free telephone consultation in the first instance.

To read more about myself, and my work, please take a look at my 'About' page.

You are very welcome to contact me with any questions you may have and I look forward to working with you.
