Counselling and Psychotherapy

in Kegworth, Loughborough, South Nottingham and beyond.

Welcome. Me

*** Coronavirus Update***

Due to government advice regarding coronavirus, I am not currently offering face to face appointments. Therapy sessions are being conducted online or over the telephone. Contact me for further details.

Hello and a very warm welcome to my website. I'm Sharon and I provide counselling and psychotherapy in Kegworth, Loughborough, the South Nottingham area and beyond.

How are you today?

The current situation with COVID-19 presents us all with difficult and challenging times.
Maybe you are feeling isolated or struggling with the effects of lockdown? Perhaps you are a frontline worker who needs some support? Are you are feeling anxious, low or overwhelmed? Perhaps you are grieving for someone who was close to you?

Or maybe something else is bothering you and keeping you awake at night? Or perhaps you are feeling stressed, suffering from panic attacks or finding yourself frequently close to tears?

Please know that you are not alone. Sometimes it's not easy to talk to someone who already knows you like a family member or a friend. Sometimes it's not easy to feel understood and fully accepted for who you are.

Counselling and Psychotherapy can help.

Making the decision to start counselling and psychotherapy is a big one, so firstly congratulations on making your first step in the process. Finding a therapist who you feel comfortable with is important. I offer a free 30 minute initial chat for you to get a sense of me, to talk through the therapy process, what you would like to achieve from therapy, whether we are able to achieve this together and ask any questions you may have about counselling, psychotherapy, transactional analysis or me and my training to become psychotherapist.

I am a qualified counsellor and hold a diploma in Transactional Analysis from The Berne Institute. I am continuing my development in Advanced Psychotherapy training in Transactional Analysis. I am committed to providing counselling and psychotherapy in a safe, confidential and non-judgemental environment. I work with individuals over aged 18 and groups, with the aim of enabling you to enhance your life and to live it more fully. More information on how I work is available on the Transactional Analysis Counselling & Psychotherapy page. To find out more about me and my journey as a trainee psychotherapist, visit the About me page.

I am particularly experienced in counselling clients who have experienced difficulties with :
  • Stress
  • Grief
  • Relationships
  • Panic Attacks and Anxiety
  • Bereavement
  • Depression
  • Coming to terms with a chronic, long term or life limiting health condition.

    I have the appropriate registration with UKATA (UK Association for Transactional Analysis) and EATA (European Association for Transactional Analysis) and adhere to their code of ethics. I also attend regular supervision. Supervision is a requirement for a counsellor or psychotherapist, whether they are a fully qualified psychotherapist or a trainee psychotherapist. Supervision forms part of a therapist's ethical practice and ensures that you are receiving the most appropriate care.

  • How will sessions work?

    My practice is located in Kegworth, a village just 10 miles south of Nottingham city, on the border of Derbyshire and Leicestershire. The practice is located just off junction 24 of the M1 and is within easy reach of Loughborough, Shepshed, Derby and South Nottingham.
