About Me

I am a registered clinical counsellor with a rich and diverse range of influences. 

I am trained in and greatly influenced by the work of Esther Perel, Terry Real and Gabor Mate - such important voices in the world of healthy and loving relationships. ​


I hold a Bachelors Degree in Counselling (B.Couns) and additional study in:

  • Couples Therapy

  • Somatic (body) Psychotherapy

  • ADHD & ASD specialisation

  • Polyvagal Theory & Trauma

  • Internal Family Systems

  • Attachment theory

  • Gabor Mate's Compassionate Inquiry

  • Narrative Therapy

  • Yoga Psychotherapy​

  • Sound Healing

  • Qigong foundational training

  • Family Constellations

  • and more ongoing.


Special areas of interest are:

  • healthy relationships - including the one with ourselves

  • empaths and highly sensitive people (HSP)

  • neurodiversity in relationships (ADHD & ASD).


I identify as an Empath and a Highly Sensitive Person (HSP). I am tuned into the world of individuals managing the intensity of these differences. I have an insatiable curiosity and identify very much with the archetypal Seeker. I have a life-long passion for the written word, music, animals and nature. I have a creative, collaborative and at times - warmly challenging - style of working. I want to ensure you experience personalised care and personal growth during our time together.

I am immensely grateful to the years of my own therapy and self-discovery journey, for the resilience and gratitude for life it has provided me with.

I so look forward to connecting with you.


Sharlene always makes me feel so comfortable to share whatever is on my mind. I always feel lighter after the session. I am so grateful to have found her. She is truly an amazing being, kind, trusting, empathetic and supportive. I wish I had found her sooner.

The hummingbird reminds us
to pause and reflect
to find meaning in the past
and seek joy in the present.

Then with wisdom and grace,
persistence and balance,
look toward the sweetness of life,
and a new lightness of being"
