Welcome to my web page my name is Sharon Doherty, when working with clients and supervisees I believe the most important part of the counselling process is building therapeutic relationships and alliances to create a safe space to explore sensitive and complex issues.
As a counsellor my specialism is supporting clients living with the ongoing physical and mental health issues attributed to an autoimmune condition. I have also developed a particular interest in helping clients recover from the complex nature of narcissistic relationships.
I am a BACP registered and accredited counsellor that that abides by the Ethical Framework for the Counselling Professions. Im also a member of the PVG scheme and work within child protection and vulnerable adult policies.
I have experience of counselling clients and therapeutic groupwork in the following settings:
Voluntary sector mental health and addiction service
Voluntary sector service supporting people following a murder or suicide
Glasgow East Community Mental Health Team
School counsellor across Glasgow City
You can visit my linkedin profile here to see my qualifications, skills and experience.
My passion for counselling adults and young people with a range of presenting issues comes from the peronal challenges I have faced in life and learning to manage and balance a range of emotional and practical needs to overcome difficult situations.
I have consulting rooms in Shotts and Glasgow and 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.
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.
Yoga One to One
This holistic approach compliments counselling by considering the physiology of the stress response and the long-term impact of stress hormones especially cortisol on the physical body, mental functioning, the mind, emotional states and human spirit.
I offer a bespoke six week program combing grounding, yoga postures, breathing practice and meditation can help to alleviate and regulate individual experiences and symptoms of anxiety, depression and trauma related conditions.
Six week introductory course will cover sun salute sequences and some standing postures in preparation for joining another class.
These 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.
In this yoga practice all postures are aided by props to support the body and encourage the muscles to be passive and relaxed to target deeper release into the fascia. Postures are held for much longer than a hatha class to allow for release and movement and inviting "rest and digest."
