All therapies I use are approved by NICE (National Institute for Health and Care Excellence).

CBT, or Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, is a talking therapy. It has been proved to help treat a wide range of emotional and physical health conditions in adults, young people and children. CBT looks at how we think about a situation and how this affects the way we act. In turn our actions can affect how we think and feel.
The therapist and client work together in changing the client’s behaviours, or their thinking patterns, or both of these.
CAT brings together understandings from cognitive psychotherapies (such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) and from psychoanalytic approaches into one integrated, user-friendly and effective therapy.
It is a collaborative programme of looking at the way you think, feel and act; a programme which is tailored to your individual needs and to your own manageable goals for change.
Compassion focused therapy is especially appropriate for people who have high levels of shame and self-criticism and who have difficulty in feeling warmth toward, and being kind to, themselves or others.
CFT can help such people learn to feel more safeness and warmth in their interactions with others and themselves.
Sharon makes you realise you are not alone. Chronic pain really is totally debilitating, and without intervention and support I felt it was only going to end badly. Sharon has totally turned around my situation. I’m active and happy again – there’s a lot of work you have to put in but Sharon’s the person to partner with if you really want success.
Sharon helped me to understand what was happening to me and to cope so much better.
