Sharan ThiaraIntegrative psychotherapist
I am a qualified counsellor who practices with a Humanistic & Integrative approach. This means I will focus on the needs of you, using techniques from different approaches.
Each person is unique and therefore I do not feel I am the expert of you and can tell you what to do, my belief is to support and guide you to with my experience to help you work through your concerns.
The first step to start counselling can feel overwhelming, bringing past thoughts to the surface and stirring up feelings of being judged, my attitude is to value you for doing the best you can. It can be tough for us at times. To accept us for who and how we are.
I am also working with couples to offer them a way to connect in Emotional focused therapy
I value my role by providing my clients with a safe space to open up and explore their concerns in a safe, non judgmental space. By being supportive, empathetic and provide an honest open approach and to listen attentively.
I feel by incorporating some creative therapy as well as talk therapy, can aid clients to explore other ways of opening up. Sometimes we can not find the words and visual work can help to bring the words to the surface.
OnlineI also provide my services online.
