Gain relief from how you are feeling

How may I help you?


       Extraordinary circumstances  

  • With restrictions imposed upon us due to COVID-19, our lives have become challenging in ways that we could not have expected or imagined.
  • It is understandable if you feel a strong emotional response at times, and heightened levels of anxiety are to be expected.
  • You are very welcome to contact me if you are finding these surreal times difficult to manage in any way.

  • For all enquiries, I offer an optional free-of-charge brief telephone consultation to help us decide together if counselling with me maybe helpful for you. 

Work with me

With 14 years experience as a qualified counsellor and clinical supervisor in a variety of therapeutic settings, I am often contacted when someone is feeling either overwhelmed, anxious, low in mood, confused about their life in some way, or grieving a loss.

You may have experienced a recent difficult life event, such as a bereavement, illness, redundancy, separation or divorce, or you could be having relationship difficulties within the workplace or home.  

It could be that you recognise experiences from your past impacting upon your life, or how you feel may make no sense to you at all.

From feelings of anger and guilt to a sense of helplessness and hopelessness, talking to someone who is trained to be able to truly hear and support you can be an empowering process.

Gain some relief

Counselling with me gives you the opportunity to gain both clarity and relief from what you are experiencing.  

We can help you to better understand what your experiences mean to you, and consequently give you the opportunity to develop new ways of coping and improve the relationship that you have with yourself, and often others too.

Professionally trained

Professionally trained in London and the South West, I have been working as a fully qualified counsellor since 2006. 

With a post qualifying specialism in Counselling for Depression, I also regularly help people with a diverse range of experiences including;


  • 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.

Empower yourself

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, on-line (video), or by telephone.

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 can offer you a warm and friendly space where we can press the pause button on life and reflect upon what is happening for you, and consequently what you may need. 

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.
