Counselling for clients in Cambridgeshire.

“Follow your heart always, and remember to take your head along with you.”

~ Alfred Adler

My name is Sharon Flack and I am a counsellor providing face to face counselling in Cambridge and on-line counselling for Cambridge and the U.K

Sometimes all we feel is that we are liars, good liars at that. The conversation goes, "Hey how are you" and we reply "Yeah, I'm good".... but are we feeling good? What would you say if you could speak the truth?!

"I'm not great, to be honest, I don't feel like myself, I am not sure what is wrong with me, I think I need help"

It is important to me that my clients are given a professional, non-judgemental empathetic space to explore their thoughts, feelings and behaviours.

During our lives we can get lost in our own world and we may not even know why or how. Life can feel all consuming and overwhelming. Together we can work through these uncomfortable feelings and I can help you to find your own solutions by working in a compassionate and empathetic approach.

It wasn't until I qualified as a hairdresser that I really started engaging with people. I felt an empathy with the stories my clients shared with me; once they confided in me I felt a trust develop between us. In my 20's and 30's I suffered with anxiety and depression and finally got myself into therapy. Therapy was a game changer for me. I became interested in the process of counselling therefore decided to retrain and develop my expertise in this field.

I feel very passionate about helping people help themselves to understand the reason they are suffering from debilitating anxiety. The spectrum of anxiety is huge, and we cannot always pinpoint why we are suffering. This can include social anxiety, eating disorders, intrusive thoughts, substance addiction or suicide ideation which are a direct response from abusive relationships, bereavement, grief or homelessness to name just a few.

I am a fully qualified Adlerian Counsellor offering Individual psychology. I am a registered member of the BACP and adhere to the BACP ethical framework. I am also a member of ASIIP, the Adlerian Society UK Institute for Individual Psychology.

Alfred Adler had the notion that all humans are driven to feel connected and to have a belonging, however this is sometimes difficult to achieve. Adlerian therapy, known as Individual psychology is an holistic encouraging approach to help us understand our thoughts feelings and behaviour so we can connect and belong with others.

However you are suffering, you do not have to feel alone.

Speak in Confidence

I offer counselling sessions in a confidential relaxed non judgemental environment.

Sessions are confidential.

I work with a contract, so together we both can discuss safeguarding and confidentiality.

A problem shared...

At times in our lives we may feel unable to cope and feel completely overwhelmed. We may have feelings of anxiety, anger, depression.

We may not be able to eat, sleep, engage with friends and work colleagues.

Counselling can help with the stuckness to help identify the issues and difficulties that you are feeling.

I offer various creative tools to help you unpack and explore the struggles that you are facing.

Making Informed Choices

I am passionate about helping my clients develop self awareness by helping them have confidence in their own autonomy.

My approach is collaborative and I am invested in equality for all people.

Some frequently asked questions

What's the difference between counselling and therapy?

Counselling is usually a good way to help with a current problem; something that can be discussed and - hopefully - resolved within a limited number of sessions. Over a certain number of weeks the understanding of the problem improves and away forward becomes clear. Therapy often describes work that goes a bit deeper, towards more substantial life issues and problems having a deeper effect on the client’s life. Therapy often requires a long-term approach, so the number of sessions can be open-ended.

Which option is most suitable depends on the client and the difficulties they are facing. In some cases counselling works well as an ongoing, longer-term option - or therapy can manage to resolve an issue in just a few sessions.

Will everything I say be kept confidential?

Everything that is said within the counselling room is private - this is one of the main ways counselling and therapy differ from talking to a friend or relative. Once you are comfortable with the format of weekly sessions and the safe space they provide, you will find the freedom to speak in confidence is of great value.

Note that there are some situations where you may be a risk to yourself or others, and there the law requires that I notify an authority; in these cases I may not be able to keep total confidentiality. Breaking confidentiality is very rare though, and only happens after the person concerned has been informed.

Can I bring a friend or relative with me?

Usually I am asked this question by people who are nervous about entering into counselling, or when they are looking for support in coming to see a therapist. This anxiety is understandable, but a key aspect of therapy is that you should feel free to talk about any issues you feel are important to you. Having someone else with you who can be connected those issues makes this opening-up more difficult, so for this reason I do not see clients accompanied by friends or family.

How long will I need to have counselling?

How long a period of counselling lasts will vary from person to person and depend on the depth of the issues they are facing. For some people a couple of sessions helps to bring their problems into focus, and they feel ready to move forward; other problems may require more of an open-ended approach.

Before we begin any work we will agree on the number of sessions we’ll undertake, and at the end of that number review our progress. As long as we both agree further therapy will be of benefit to you, sessions can continue.

How long will I have to wait for an appointment?

My aim is to offer a first appointment - known as an initial assessment - within 1-2 weeks. Then we would arrange a set number of counselling sessions to take place at the same time every week, that is convenient for you and where I have availabity. How quickly these sessions can begin will depend on the availabity of that free ‘slot’.
