Sharon Taylor - Person Centred Counsellor & RDIst Coach (MBACP Reg.)


Do you have feelings of anxiety, stress or depression? Are you grappling with relationship difficulties or facing critical changes in your life that you need to make sense of? Are you suffering from loss or bereavement or just feeling stuck? Finding the right counselling relationship can really make a difference at this critical time. To help, I will provide a warm and focused space for you to feel valued and free to explore your worries and challenges without judgement. Together we will focus our attention on your needs to find the right questions, goals and answers that enable you to move forward.

I am a qualified and experienced Counsellor & Relational Dynamics Coach. To ensure my practice is ethical and of high quality I am BACP registered and work according to the Ethical Framework of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).

I am privileged to work with both adults & children drawing upon a wide range of rich and valuable experience working in the NHS, school-based counselling and private practice. 

I will work responsively to meet your unique needs by: offering straight forward talking therapy; working creatively when words are not enough; integrating coaching techniques when you have a clear goal but just need some help to achieve it; providing a gentle and focused space to talk freely, without judgement; empathy, acceptance and a listening ear so you can feel truly heard and understood; support to find your own solutions, insights, life balance and an opportunity to develop your personal self-help toolkit for a better life.

At the heart of my practice lies a passionate belief in our human capacity for growth and our potential to use those painful and critical moments as a catalyst to find more enriching and satisfying lives. I would feel honoured to be able to work alongside you on your personal journey to do just that.

I work with a wide range of issues including:
