Individual Therapy

Time to come home

Experience a whole new level of self-acceptance, empowerment and vitality for life.

​Holistic counselling can help if you feel anxious, depressed, a loss of identity, low self-worth, stressed, overwhelmed, lost, sad, fed up with old patterns - and a vast array of other messy, human emotions. 

I work from a foundation of mind, body and soul and guide you gently towards feeling grounded in all that you are and want to be. I provide practical tools, healing conversations and invite you deeper into your body's experiences of your emotional world. Working in this way can also unlock physical pain, as it is now clearer, the ways in which our bodies can hold our painful emotional and traumatic memories.

When we learn to hold ourselves and remain present with deep emotions - while at the same time - foster  an attitude of curiosity and acceptance, we learn to live through the contradictions and challenges of life. We transform and grow from all that we experience and come back into contact with our essential, true SELF.

Sharlene has been guiding me through the most difficult part of my life - the death of my mother. Anxiety and grief had me bedridden. Sharlene went out of her way to speak to me when I really needed support and we've been working together since. I know healing is a long road and I'm learning to walk it with gentle footsteps and self-love because of the Barefoot Therapist. I can't recommend Sharlene enough if you need help on your healing journey.

Fear not the unexpected,  for you have an innate and wondrous capacity to transform.

In fears place, shine a light of curiosity, at sameness, predictability and comfort, for it is often there where you encounter, that which holds you in chains.
Step gently into your canoe, leave the oars on the banks, allow the river to gently take you.

Whatever it is that awaits you, know you are already beautifully, masterfully made, to withstand it, to integrate it and to thrive”
