About

Sharon Strickland MBACP (Accred)

I have been counselling individuals for a number of years in a private practice setting

and also within educational settings, (primary, secondary, higher education) at a number

of charities and at a GP surgery.  I am a Registered and Accredited member of the

British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).  My areas of expertise

include counselling adolescents, young people and adults and I have worked with a wide

range of clients, experiencing a wide range of difficulties.  I also see clients from the

Better Help online therapy service.

 

We don't always feel 'complete' and my aim is to explore any difficulties and work with

you on your journey. 

As an Integrative Therapist, this enables me to tailor the counselling to suit the individual's needs.  Though all my work is underpinned by the Person-Centred Approach, I also use elements from other theories, including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Psychodynamic theory and tools from different creative therapies.  All my work is guided by the BACP Ethical Framework and I receive monthly supervision (a requirement of any trainee or qualified counsellor).

I have undertaken training (an ongoing process) and had experience in counselling clients with many mental health difficulties.  I also have a DBS Certificate and I am fully insured.  Below are my qualifications and some of the training I have undertaken.

Please note - I also hope to offer Clinical Supervision to Trainee and Qualified Counsellors from June 2024. Please see the 'Supervision Tab' above for more details.
