10 Years Post-Accreditation Experience

Welcome. I'm Sharon Thomas. I'm an accredited counsellor and psychotherapist - I help individuals, couples and families with their emotional health. I have private sector experience as a counsellor and psychotherapist.

What to Expect

An introductory assessment meeting allows you to see if you feel comfortable with me, discuss what concerns you, ask questions, clarify confidentiality, and assess if therapy may benefit you. Please use a contact option on the right to book an initial assessment appointment in Croydon.

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)

Cognitive behavioural therapy focuses on how your thoughts (cognitions) affect your feelings and behaviour. It recognises and addresses unhelpful thoughts which maintain the issues you encounter. The aim of CBT is for you to have healthier thoughts and emotions.

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) (England and Wales) suggests cognitive behavioural therapy for bipolar disorder, depression, Generalised Anxiety Disorder (GAD), Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), panic disorder, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and self harm.

Counselling

Counselling centres on listening to you, and assisting you. You decide what matter regarding your childhood and/or adult life you discuss. An aim of counselling is to help you to talk about a problem and find a solution that is right for you.

Psychotherapy

Psychotherapy focuses on you, and you obtaining insight into the difficulties you confront. It explores your thoughts, emotions and significant moments in your history. Psychotherapy intends to help you change or discover appropriate methods of coping.
