Sharon Kirby Integrative psychotherapist , W1G
As a psychotherapist and counsellor my aim is to develop a supportive and collaborative relationship with clients, a reliable base from which we can explore feelings, thoughts and experiences. I believe the therapeutic process can bring about insight, understanding and emotional growth - a deeper embodied sense of being within oneself and in relationship with others.
Theories and insights from attachment, psychodynamic and systems theories inform my understanding of the patterns that develop in the way we experience ourselves and relate to others. Mindfulness based approaches bring body and mind together, harnessing the body/brain’s intuitive ability to restore a sense of balance. These theories and models, along with current research developments in the fields of developmental psychology and neuroscience, combine to form a framework which supports my work and my compassion for the human ‘struggles’ we may be faced with at different times of our lives.
I have over 20 years experience, providing counselling and therapeutic support to individuals, couples and groups in a wide range of settings including community counselling services, family support services, higher education and the NHS. I have also worked as a tutor on a Counselling training course. I am registered with the UKCP and hold senior accreditation with the BACP.
