Life can be pretty tough going and one of the most significant signs that your chaotic thoughts, feelings and behaviours are taking over is a change in your sleeping pattern.
You may be experiencing far too many restless nights’ yet despite feeling overtired you lie awake tossing and turning,
watching the hours tick by.
After a sleepless night you find yourself constantly hitting that snooze button, or
yearning to spend any downtime that you have asleep.
Have you ever thought that there must be more to life
than what you are
experiencing right now,
feeling as though your
needs have become much less important?
Where has the identity of this once vibrant person gone?
Do you recognise those moments when you look in the mirror knowing that things could be different and
think to yourself
Who is this person staring back
What am I truly capable of?
When did I give up on my hopes, dreams and desires?
Are you feeling tired,
exhausted and weighed
down by the burden of
your life experiences?
Do you feel as though the ‘real you’ has disappeared?
At certain times we can feel stuck or that something is missing in our lives and everywhere we turn there
seems to be a lack of choices.
When we feel like this there is a definite lack of motivation and
even if we did have the energy to make some changes, we wouldn’t have a clue how or where to start.
You may have experienced chaotic thoughts and
lack of motivation in the past which maybe was fleeting and you found that it resolved itself
without much effort but this time it has become
all-consuming and your whole life is a chaotic and confusing place to be.
Recognizing the signs that you are overwhelmed early on is a step inthe right direction.
You may have found my website through a google search, seen me on Facebook or Instagram.
I may have been recommended by a friend or you may have been part of one of my workshops and decided to
work on yourself at a deeper level.
The bottom line is that you never give up, you want to focus on your good qualities, the things thatmake you ‘you’.
You want to charge forward with a renewed sense of belief and confidence.
You may not have a clear vision
of where you are going but you
do believe that better things
are within your grasp
just waiting to be discovered.
I will support you to clear
your head so that you can
work out what you are
thinking, what you are
feeling and work out how
your behaviour impacts your life,so that you can make the necessary changes.
You will discover ways to build
your self-confidence and
self-belief and I will show you some creative techniques to
re-design your life.
We will look at ways to get your
sleep patterns back on track so
that while you sleep peacefully
your subconscious mind will be hard at work so that you will be ready to greet the day and the tasks ahead.
Armed with a toolbox of resources you will be able to visualise the future and live the life that is waiting for you.

My background in biological sciences, mental health and education underpins the
way I work.
Being involved in a variety of workplaces has allowed me to cut through the jargon so that I can help to educate and show how thoughts, feelings
and behaviours can work in harmony leading to a restful night’s sleep.
When I was going through
my treatment for Stage 3
breast cancer, I met some
pretty tough sleep disorder issues and also found the benefits of positive thinking
and how changing my
mindset helped me through
one ofthe most difficult times
in my life.
Both my counselling training
and personal experiences
has given me a perfect platform to explore how chaotic
thoughts impact on sleep
and on daily living.
Also how important it is to be tuned in to sleep patterns and requirements and the many health benefits that a
good night sleep can give us.
My name is Sharon and I Am
an Intuitive and Creative Counsellor and Sleep Coach Working With Adults To Stop Chaotic Thinking So That They Can Develop and Maintain New Levels of Self-Awareness and Self-Belief Leading To A Peaceful Nights Sleep.
I see sleep as having many benefits and my favourite quote comes from the 16th century poet Thomas Dekker who wrote ‘Sleep is the golden chain that ties health and our bodies together’.
When I qualified it was an easy decision to combine my passion for the topic of sleep with my personal experiences of how chaotic thinking leads to sleepless nights never knowing which way to turn.
My passion is to support people
to make changes in the way
that they think, feel and behave leading to a better night's sleep with a renewed vitality for life.
Counselling is never easy but
I feel that when people can put themselves first and they can imagine how they will think,
feel and behave coming out of
the other side of chaos they
willbe able to find a new way
of interacting with themselves,
others and the world in
which they live.
In these busy times it can be difficult to travel to a face to face appointment and changes in a daily routine
can make it harder to make a pre-arranged appointment time.
Online counselling allows you the opportunity to access counselling support at a time and place that is convenient for you.
Online counselling is not
an attempt to re-create
face to face counselling
but uses the richness of language to generate new
ways of communication.
It provides an opportunity to explore personal difficulties in a confidential and supportive environment which may include expressing feelings that are painful and which many of us experience at certain times in our lives.
The content of any emails or sessions will never be communicated with a third party except where I have professional supervision of my work where your identity will never be revealed. Supervision ensures I am working ethically and safely with clients.
If you choose Emails we will use Proton Mail which allows password protected document exchanges.
I will send details on request and offer help to get
you set up.
Video chat or Instant Messaging will be conducted via VSee
This is an encrypted secure platform. Details will be sent on request.
Zoom can be used on a laptop or via a mobile app. This allows users to meet online with or without video.
Zoom provides end-to-end encryption.
We will agree a time to meet online.Using Zoom means that there is no travelling involved or childcare costs.
Online counselling is different to face to face counselling in that misunderstandings can sometimes happen as there may be a lack of facial expressions or tome of voice.
With this in mind we need to agree to think the best of each other and then try to express how we are feeling.
In the event of misunderstandings happening whether in or out of the therapeutic space we will seek to clarify and address
any miscommunication that may have happened.
Counselling using video will be conducted using Zoom which is an end-to-end secure encrypted platform.
I will send details about how to use this if you want this platform.

My current fees are shown at the bottom of this page.
I recognise that you may find it difficult to ‘justify’ spending money on your mental health and wellbeing, and yet the reality is that free or subsidised therapy services are very limited.
As a private practitioner, my fees reflect my training and experience balanced with my wish to offer affordable therapy.
It may help to think of paying for counselling as an investment in yourself, and that the very act of taking this step demonstrates a belief in your own worth.
I understand that allowing yourself this right can be very difficult.
If you have reached this page, and believe that you can’t afford my fees, but still feel I might be the right therapist for you then please get in touch.
I can sometimes offer reduced fee appointments and I am always happy to discuss this option.
I review my fee annually with any change taking effect from
1st January. Fee increases are not applied to existing clients with whom I have signed a contract, but if we continue working together for over a year I reserve the right to raise my fees in the second year.
Payment of the fee must be made in advance of the session, or when you send your email.
I will issue an invoice to you, which I will normally do by email on the day of the session, or on the day you send your email.
If you need to cancel a session within 48 hours of
our appointment, you will still need to pay the fee unless we can rearrange for
a mutually convenient time.
You can pay me by PayPal, using the button below, or
2020 fees for individual
(1 to 1) counselling:
Email £50 consisting of 1 email from you and 1 email from me to you.
Instant message £55 per hour
In person / face to face: £55 per 1 hour session
Web-cam (video call) via Zoom: £55 per 1 hour session.
SOCIAL MEDIA POLICY
I engage with social media privately and professionally, which means there is a possibility that, if you use social media yourself, you may see my social media activity.
I respect the confidentiality of the therapeutic relationship and never share on social media the content of client work.
Reading content I post could
still have an impact on our therapeutic relationship, because I write about topics that are relevant to many people – for example, it might feel as if a post or blog has particular relevance to your situation, or you might learn something you didn’t know about me.
You can choose to view posts without liking or commenting, in which case neither I or anyone else will know that you have seen a post.
This might still impact the therapeutic relationship but
I encourage clients who have questions about content I post to bring this to our work together.
Clients who follow my professional page should consider their own privacy, bearing in mind that it is a public page.
If you comment or ‘Like’ a post, please be aware that this can be seen by anyone who visits my page.
I will reply to messages sent via professional social media accounts but will not engage in counselling via social media. I will normally direct people to my website or give them my email address.
I don’t accept friend requests from clients to my personal social media accounts as this can blur the boundaries of our professional relationship.
If you are a counsellor or therapist, please be aware that we may encounter each other in online counselling forums or social networking groups. If this happens, I will not identify you as a client and I would suggest that you not identify me.
I will normally avoid reading your posts in such a context, or interacting with you, in order to protect the counsellor/ client therapeutic relationship.
If you have any questions about this policy please bring them to our counselling work for discussion.
