About Sharon

I am an experienced counsellor working with clients in a face to face environment in Edinburgh and on-line. (no wheelchair access)  I am fully trained in the provision of e-therapy and am a senior professional member of ACTO. (Association of Counselling and Therapy online)

My primary mode of working is psychodynamic, I suppose that resembles the traditional psychoanalytic approach that most of us associate with therapy.  However, psychodynamic, for me, is focused on the behaviours and emotions linked with our current problems.

My interest in therapy started a long time ago when I undertook my degree in Psychology.  I was in my 20s then and I just didn’t feel I had the life experience to go into providing therapy at that stage of my life.  For 20 years I worked as a successful project manager and took my chances to tour the world and live in other places.   It was in my 40s that I decided I was ready to go back to this career.  Since finishing my training I have worked in different areas of the profession and worked with different client groups.  I currently work at the University of Edinburgh, providing therapy for the students.


Why choose me?

While training, I underwent a few years of therapy myself.  I understand how hard it can be and can help through the process to enable real and lasting change.  I don’t judge and am open to any information or thoughts that you bring.  I won’t be shocked.

In addition to have space to explore your personal and interpersonal experiences, I hope to find strategies that help you enhance your ability to live happily and productively.  Depending on your needs, we may find it useful to adopt a Cognitive Behavioural approach to manage the change you desire.

No obligation consultation session or phone call:  If you decide to go ahead with therapy, clear agreement will be reached on all contractual issues.

I am experienced in short term therapy and this is usually for a period of 6 weeks at a time.

I try to promote diversity and inclusion as a core value in my work. I recognize all types of diversity including and not limited to size, ethnicity, race, gender, sexual orientation, age, class, citizenship status, religion and abilities.

I am fully compliant with GDPR requirements and a privacy notice regarding management of data is available on request.

If you are currently in crisis, please contact the Samaritans or go to your GP,  the situation cannot wait.

I am not a medical doctor, if you need medical assistance please consult your GP.
