Sheila BurrowesIntegrative counsellor
Are you and your partner experiencing issues with intimacy, communication, or infidelity issues? Are you struggling with depression, anxiety, bereavement, or self-esteem problems? I am a counsellor/psychotherapist at Tranquillum Therapy, who provides counselling for both individuals and couples. I provide a comfortable, confidential safe space for you to discuss any life difficulties you are experiencing. I use an integrative counselling model, where I use a variety of counselling approaches to best suit your needs. Where appropriate, I can help you learn new practical coping strategies.
I currently work from home via Zoom or phone calls. I hope to return to the office in September; however, I will continue offering Zoom/phone sessions as well. My office is on the 1st floor and is not accessible for wheelchair users or individuals unable to use stairs. If this is a concern, please let me know and we can discuss an alternative. If you feel I could be the right therapist for you, then please call for an informal chat. It is of utmost importance to feel comfortable with your therapist.
"Sheila helped myself and my husband both individually and together through couples therapy. We both found Sheila instantly easy to speak to and caring, especially my husband who had no previous experience of therapy and was very sceptical. Thank you so much, Sheila for helping us work through and understand some of our issues and for giving us the tools to address these in the future."
"I have been seeing Sheila since April this year after a traumatic bereavement. I was extremely nervous and anxious about bereavement counselling and didn’t know what to expect. However after my friend recommended Sheila’s services I was willing to try anything to help the pain. I can honestly say it is the best thing I have ever done, Sheila was so welcoming and put me at ease within minutes of meeting her. I was able to open up and relax and she made my feelings seem completely normal. It is a safe and comforting room with full privacy which helps with any anxiety you may have. Sheila has changed my life, I can not recommend her enough."
"Sheila is so kind. She is very patient and listens intently to every you say. What I really appreciate about Sheila is that she asks all the right questions to help you to learn so much more about yourself and the journey you are on. Sheila has also giving me some brilliant tips and advice on how to control my anxious feelings and to learn how to deal with them. Thank you Sheila."
