I got in touch with Sharon when I reached a particularly low point, where my anxiety levels had spoilt yet another holiday. She immediately made me feel welcome and has a wonderfully calm and relaxing personality, which put me at ease. I already had another holiday planned, so her challenge was, in 3 months, to calm me enough to get me through the airport and onto the plane. I have to say she achieved this brilliantly and I had a wonderful stress free holiday, the first in many years. She has now given me the tools I need to recognise and manage my anxieties; I enjoyed every session with her and always came away feeling relaxed and positive.
I saw Sharon as a teenager who was just coming to terms with their mental health. I had seen so many different therapists who I just didn’t connect with but then I had my first session with Sharon and she was so welcoming and open and safe. She saw me through anxiety, depression and sexual assault and I cannot thank her enough for all the progress I made as a young girl. The therapy I had with her set me up for better mental health as an adult and for that I am forever grateful

Sharon has been an invaluable support to me through difficult times in my life. She is empathetic, understanding, and skilled. Sharon has the ability to gently challenge when appropriate which I have always appreciated. Through talking with Sharon I have come to a deeper understanding of

Sharon has exceptional skills working with young people and their parents.
Her ability to help young people open up, while supporting parents through any difficulties, helps bring clarity for all. Bridging new awareness and building positive relationships between parent and child, brings a new perspective so lasting change can happen.
Basically Sharon knows what works and doesn’t and just this alone is gold!
Sharon not only works one on one but runs positive programmes for young people that you would want your child involved in, preparing and enriching them for life.
Sharon made me believe in myself
Sharon had a huge impact supporting and coaching my daughter through an extremely difficult time. She was patient, thoughtful and caring and was able to provide reassurance and coping strategies that enabled my daughter to maintain her studies and school life. She was also a great source of counsel to me during an incredibly challenging time. Sharon works hard to really understand the deep-rooted problems and provides very helpful insights and tactics to make things better.
Sharon is an outstanding therapist and I totally recommend her for all sorts of reasons. She is a perceptive listener who not only relates to people of all ages and stages but is able to identify and connect easily with peoples’ issues at hand. Sharon’s supportive and realistic strategies and tools meant I was able to put into practice behaviours that I simply had never thought of before my consultations. Sharon is dedicated, kind, caring and strong and someone who I would highly recommend as an excellent counsellor.
I have had the pleasure of working with Sharon in a range of environments in New Zealand and UK and have seen her reach out and connect in inspirational ways with both students and adults. Her positivity is infectious and she is often the catalyst for turning people’s lives around. Sharon is the ultimate compassionate professional and I still turn to her for support as I navigate my way through the transitions of life.
