2+ Years Post-Registration Experience

Hi. I'm Sharon Simms. I'm a registered counsellor - I assist individuals with their emotional health. I have private and voluntary sector experience as a counsellor. My focus involves depression, panic disorder and relationship problems, and the specific obstacles encountered by men and women.

What to Expect

An initial assessment appointment allows you to see if you feel comfortable with me, discuss what concerns you, ask questions, clarify confidentiality, and decide if therapy could help you. Please use a contact option on the right to arrange an initial assessment meeting in Coulsdon or Redhill.

Counselling

Counselling centres on listening to you, and supporting you. You determine which issue concerning your early years or adult life you explore. An objective of counselling is to enable you to speak about a problem and find a way forward that is right for you.

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) (England and Wales) recommends counselling for depression.

Psychodynamic Therapy

Psychodynamic therapy focuses on the unconscious causes of the problems you experience. It facilitates you in becoming aware of parts of your internal dynamics. Psychodynamic therapy aims to increase your self-understanding to give you choices.

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) (England and Wales) suggests psychodynamic therapy for depression, self harm and social anxiety disorder.
