Life changes, challenges and transitions can be emotionally and mentally draining of our energy, health and well-being. Becoming aware of your existing strengths, weaknesses, thoughts, feelings and actions, and using various self-discovery techniques to turn your focus inwardly, will all help you cope, adapt and find resolutions and create solutions.

You can expect the counselling sessions to be in a safe, private, confidential environment. At the initial session, you and Sharon will discuss your needs and expectations of therapy and future goals. Each person is unique and individual, and needs, expectations and goals may be revisited and redefined during the therapeutic process.
Sharon believes emotional and mental health deserve attention and kindness, just like your physical health. Sharon warmly invites you to open up with her and use her years of experience to help you discover the wisdom you already have within yourself.
