"This course is amazing, a journey of personal discovery and a brilliant insight into the world of counselling. I loved every part of it and didn't want it to end"

Sharon has facilitated a one day “Feel Good” workshop followed by a four week Personal Development and Confidence Building Course for young mums including single mums and mums from Ethnic Minority backgrounds from our Children’s Centre in McNay Street, Darlington. A group of ten mothers had the opportunity discover themselves as individuals  by using creative medium and discussion in a confidential environment.


They experienced the power of being able to talk about their own dreams and wishes and acknowledge that pretence in relationships and in life is not helpful. The sessions gave them some knowledge and introduced them to tools to gently boost their confidence and create some self awareness about themselves and their interactions with their children and family. It probably inspired some to start seriously thinking how they are going to get to where they want to be.


The success of the course could be measured by a nearly 100% attendance by these hard-to reach client group but more importantly the brighter smiles and the comments on the evaluation forms  - “the course was fun and easy", “..I was treated like an adult”,  “ really different and worthwhile”,  “..learnt useful things to use in daily life”.


Having had the privilege to be a student on one of Sharon’s Counselling Courses I can easily say she will no doubt touch and change your life in a positive and powerful  way if you are willing to let that happen.

"The course was well structured and informative. I realise now more than before that every patient is an individual with individual needs and expectations. I will now listen more closely when others are talking to me so I receive clear and concise information"

"It was a busy and structured day where I felt safe and comfortable. Your honesty and humour together with creative handouts enabled me to reflect on past and present and then build future plans and goals. I look forward to enjoying some of the other workshops that are listed. Thank you".


PB, Northallerton, North Yorkshire (Chapters Workshop)

"A most enjoyable and informative day, I left not only with knowledge but also gained personal insight. Well worth it. Thank you"

"Warm, friendly, relaxed, informative and enabling. Leaves you wanting more & reinforces your own experiences and good professional practice. Well worth the time & money.

"Play has never been so hard! Sand tray work was very enlightening. I was loathe to participate as it caused some trepidation, but in the end I came away with a huge question answered - and I didn't even know I had questions. It is the safe, secure environment that Sharon and Chapters gives that enables the blossoming and opening up of one's inner self. Thank you so very much x"

"As a student on the Diploma course with no real idea of which specific field if any I want to go into, this workshop has given me insight

into play therapy and a decision as to where I am going "

"I have enjoyed this workshop and creative play. I really appreciate the 'hands on' experiential aspects as it helped to put the work into context and to appreciate the roles of counsellor and client. Thank you.



"This course has been one of the best experiences. I have learnt so much about myself and counselling and it has changed the way I look at life. A huge big thank you"
