I have a longtime interest in self-knowledge and self-exploration. I have always been personally drawn to work with the mystery of myself, loving to delve into what excites and/or troubles me to come to greater self-understanding and healing.
This has naturally extended to wanting to help others do the same, and once my kids left home I had more time to devote to this learning. My journey to professional training began with a desire to de-program the guilt that the Catholic church instilled in me as a child (see my blog: “Guilt-Edged Imprint”). I searched the internet for ways to reverse the effect using a similar technique to that which anchored it in my body – and was excited to discover EFT.

My curiosity about whether EFT could help me progressed from studying websites to reading books, trying it for myself, consulting a practitioner, and finally to professional training. I received my Advanced EFT practitioner certification from EFT International in January 2022. Over this time I have also been drawn to study related modalities, and the ones that appeal to me most are those where I work in a co-creative partnership with my client. I have compassion, curiosity and some useful tools and skills, and my client comes with an issue to work on, a desire to resolve it, and a readiness to take an active part in their own healing process.
Over time I have used the techniques I have learned to resolve personal issues and bring greater peace to many areas of my life. There is more work to do – there always will be - work on myself, and ongoing training to add to the toolkit of services I have to offer.
I am still amazed at the sessions we had. I am deeply grateful for the experience. You have really mastered these techniques and come from a place of deep caring and love. I noticed a real difference in my ability to deal with the stresses in my life. I'm sure that a definite shift / transformation has occurred in me. I continue to be very impressed with the work you do and know that it has made a difference in my life. Thank you so much Sharon.

My Code of Conduct
I do what I say I do. I do not over promise. I am open, honest, and account for my actions. I am ethical and always strive to do the right thing for my clients.
I always deal with people with respect, honesty and compassion and treat them without prejudice. I strive to promote human welfare consistently and reliably.
I am committed to high-quality professional and safe standards.
I keep all client information provided to me confidential. Individuals are entitled to access and request correction of their personal information held by me.
How I Work
My role is to help clients find their way to their own solutions, and therefore, advice is rarely given;
I reserve the right to refuse to work with someone without disclosing the reason;
Once I have accepted a client I will provide them the best attention and services I can;
I aspire to provide the same quality of service to all, regardless of race, religion, age, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, disability or vaccination status;
I provide a physically and psychologically safe and private consultation space. This includes ensuring our conversations will not be overheard by others. If at any time a client informs me that the feel unsafe in any way I will make every effort to rectify the situation;
Clients leaving a session will be kept separate from those arriving;
I will work online with a client if I consider it safe. At the start of an online session I will check with the client if his or her location is private;
The client has the right to bring a supportive person to be present during the consultation. The support person is there primarily as an observer and must agree not to interject in the session unless they feel the situation is becoming unsafe for the client;
If a client is seeking help with symptoms that are prolonged or potentially life-threatening or which I feel are cause for concern, I will enquire whether the client has consulted a medical practitioner and, if they have not, I will advise them to do so. I will record this in the client notes;
If after beginning work together I find that a client needs a level of expertise beyond that which I am competent or able to offer them I will immediately inform the client and offer to refer them to someone who has the required level of expertise;
If a client expresses doubts about their current medication, or reports side-effects or other issues that concern them and/or myself, I will advise the client to discuss this with their qualified medical adviser. I will record this in the client notes.
