I'm pleased to say from Tuesday 27/4 I will be able to offer face to face sessions in Shotts and from 29/4 in Glasgow. Over the next few weeks I'm anticipating several changes in my diary as lockdown eases during this time I will continue to offer remote sessions by telephone or zoom video conferencing.
Shotts Community Centre reopened on 1/6/21 I will be resuming classes from 24/6/21.
Welcome to my web page my name is Sharon Doherty, I am a registered and accredited counsellor and member of BACP and COSCA that abides by both these ethical frameworks.
You can visit my linkedin profile here to see my qualifications, skills and experience.
Should you at any time feel that the level of care you have received falls below these professional standards you can register a complaint at BACP and COSCA.
My passion for counselling adults and young people with a range of presenting issues comes from the challenges I have faced in life and learning to manage and overcome difficult situations.
As a counsellor I have developed a particular interest in supporting clients living with the ongoing physical and mental health issues attributed to an autoimmune condition.
I have consulting rooms in Shotts and Glasgow and welcome referrals from EAP providers, I also offer a reduced fee for trainee counsellors that require personal therapy.
Family counselling can be a useful place to explore and better understand family dynamics and behaviours.
There are many ways differences between adults and children within your family can show up.
Time in family therapy can be a safe place to explore and identify these differences and begin the process of working together to find an appropriate solution.
I can offer family counselling appointments in Glasgow, in order to satisfy social distancing guidelines I will be unable to offer family therapy sessions from Shotts until the current guidelines change.
I work with supervisees from voluntary and statutory organisations as well those in private practice to support and expand their edge of awareness as a professional counsellor or practitioner.
I encourage and support reflection and development around; legal issues, safeguarding, theoretical knowledge, ethical dilemmas and development of self awareness.
I offer clinical supervision in Glasgow and Shotts to practitioners from all modalities and offer a reduced rate for trainees that require supervision.
Beginner/Intermediate Yoga Class
Venue: Shotts Community Education Centre, Kirk Road, ML7 5ET
My yoga classes are aimed at beginner/intermediate students and follow the principles of Hatha yoga with the focus of Iyengar teachings. Each class uses precision of placement combined with consistent fluid movement and conscious breath to create a vinyasa flow sequence.
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.
Practising yoga regularly can help support a range of physical and mental health issues, I hope to see you at a class soon.
I believe that the relationships and connections we have with family, work and our community can contribute to positive physical and mental health.
For this reason I am keen to connect with counsellors/supervisors and yoga teachers that have a shared interest in supporting local people's health and wellbeing and developing local communities across Lanarkshire.
