Holistic Counselling & Psychotherapy
that gets to the          of it

Welcome! I'm Sharlene Townes - Holistic Counsellor & Psychotherapist. 

Are you feeling weighed down by personal or relationship issues and not sure where to start to find a counsellor? For most people, how comfortable they feel in the presence of a therapist is a major factor in positive outcomes.

Book your introductory 30-miute session with me to get a sense of how I work before you commit. 

Why wait to create meaningful change in your life?

Unlike other relationships - within a therapeutic connection - the focus of the relationship is you! As you express painful feelings, they are heard with compassion. As you expose long held secrets, they are met with non-judgement. As you connect to your vulnerability, you are held in a safe and nurturing space. No agenda, other than your well-being. 

Why Barefoot?

Long story short - simply because being barefoot makes me feel grounded, relaxed, free and fully embodied - and what a wonderful way to feel when I'm working with you! When you join me, I encourage you to kick off your shoes too, relax into the space and let me help you discover a relaxed, grounded and more embodied you. When you do this, you get to the heart of it and experience, once again, a lightness of being.

If you want to feel hopeful, empowered and engaged in the process of change, holistic counselling and psychotherapy with me could be the right approach for you. I work collaboratively with you to:

  • Develop self-compassion and acceptance

  • Learn to trust your inner wisdom

  • Experience deep release from the past 

  • Change patterns that keep your relationships stuck

  • Become grounded in who you really are 

  • Trust your resilient nature and begin to flow with life

  • Get to know the best version of you 

  • Bring that version of you fully into life.

If this sounds like the change you're looking for . . .  then I may be the right therapist for you.

“Therapy can be the acceleration out of a stagnant pattern,

the support needed for an important change,

the guidance for rebuilding self-worth”.


I met Sharlene at a time when I most needed someone to help me gain clarity on what was real and what was unwanted confusion. During the course of my sessions with her it became evident that she not only listened and remembered every word, but she understood me. She explained what was useful and what was not. This clarity was vital to me in a way that enabled me to build tools within myself to move forward with a much healthier mindset. I learnt much about myself and the importance of living in the present.

The relief in my lower abdomen has been nothing short of miraculous. Even though I knew it was emotional pain stored there, I had been totally unable to access it until our session yesterday, thank you!⁠
