Sharon Nicholson Counselling in Weymouth

Invest in Yourself

Counselling is an investment in yourself as the resources you gain, and the changes you can make, can be life-long. 

I believe that it is important to take your time, and choose a counsellor who has the relevant experience and training to best support you with your needs. 

I regularly help people experiencing;




Relationship issues


Adjustment difficulties after significant life events

A general sense of dissatisfaction, unrest or sadness

I have a particular interest in working with people who are experiencing relationship difficulties, either at work, at home, with family or with friends.

Professional Support

Sharon Nicholson, Registered Member MBACP (Accred)

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

I offer non-judgemental and effective counselling to help you improve the quality of your relationships with both others and yourself. 

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. 

I trained and specialised in Counselling for Depression (CfD) whilst working in the NHS. 

(evidenced as being effective for mild to moderate depression and low mood, NICE approved - National Institute for Clinical Effectiveness)

Make a Positive Difference To Your Life

Time for Change

Breathing Space...


I recognise that it can take courage to make that initial contact, 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.

I believe that the relationship between counsellor and client is fundamental to effective therapy. There is no obligation to continue with sessions after our initial meeting, and I will help you to find an alternative therapist if I'm not the right person for you.

You have already taken the first courageous step towards positive change. Take a look through the rest of my website to find out more about me, how I work and what I can offer you. 

If you're interested in investing in yourself, and working with me, I welcome your enquiry.
