Individual Therapy

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 spirit and always aim to guide you gently back to an integrated and whole self. 

Working in this way can unlock physical pain, as it is now clearly shown how we store painful emotional and traumatic memories in our bodies.     

If you haven't been taught to tune into your whole being - you are in for a treat.

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”
