Welcome to my web page my name is Sharon Doherty, since 1997 I have lived with the diagnosis of a chronic condition this experience contributed to my deciding to become a counsellor. As a result I have developed a particular interest in supporting clients living with the ongoing physical and mental health issues attributed to an autoimmune condition.
I teach yoga to support physical and mental well being, classes encourage the development balance, strength and flexibility while using conscious breath to connect to and bring balance between the body and mind.

My passion for counselling adults, young people and families with a range of presenting issues comes from the challenges I have faced in life and learning to overcome difficult situations. I have consulting rooms in Shotts and Glasgow and welcome referrals for: individual clients, family counselling, personal therapy for trainees and I accept referrals from EAP providers.
Family counselling can be a useful place to explore and better understand family dynamics and behaviours. There are many ways differences between the adults and children within the family can show up. Time in counselling can help to identify these differences and start the process of working together to find an appropriate solution. I can offer family appointments in Glasgow and Shotts.
I work with supervisees from voluntary and statutory organisations as well those in private practice to expand their skills as a professional counsellor or practitioner. I encourage and support reflection and development around; legal issues, safeguarding, theoretical knowledge, ethical issues and development of self awareness. I offer clinical supervision in Glasgow and Shotts to practitioners and students from all modalities and offer a reduced rate for students that require supervision.
