Counselling and Psychotherapy in Finchley Central
My practice is back to in-person sessions.
My name is Sharon Kaplansky. A warm welcome to my website.
Facing challenges in your day to day life? Struggling with anxiety, relationship issues, depression or panic? Therapy will help you cope with your feelings and provide you with clarity. Therapy will also help you make meaning of your life and empower you to create a richer and more positive future.
I am an experienced, qualified and accredited counsellor and psychotherapist in Finchley, I hold an MA in Counselling and Psychotherapy from the Minster Centre / Middlesex University, London. I am also a certified couples therapist with the Couple's Institute.
I have worked as a counsellor within the NHS, voluntary, charitable and private sectors with a wide range of client groups and issues such as anxiety, depression, bereavement, coping with terminal illness and relationship challenges. I incorporate different approaches in my counselling and psychotherapy to best meet your needs.
I understand that opening your heart to a stranger may feel intimidating or unnatural. Indeed, it is a brave move. For that reason our first counselling session is an assessment so that we can get to know each other and establish whether we can continue to work together. I endeavour to offer a warm, supportive and non-judgemental therapeutic space in which we can explore your emotions, feelings and experiences to reach a deeper understanding and move forward with wider possibilities.
No two people are alike which is why, during your counselling, I treat you as a unique individual and explore your life patterns and narrative with intent and attention.
As a counsellor I work with both individuals and couples on a short-term, time limited basis or an open-ended longer-term period. I abide by the UKCP and BACP codes of ethics in delivering a professional and confidential psychotherapy service.
