My name is Sharon Pritchard and I am a qualified counsellor and Cognitive Behaviour Therapist. I qualified at Keele University with a BSc (Dual Hons.) degree in Psychology and Criminology and subsequently studied for the Post-graduate Diploma in Counselling at University College, Chester. To continue my professional development I have completed the MSc. in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy and am working towards accreditation in Eye-Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing, to which I have completed the basic training to level 4.
Accreditation & Experience
I am registered with the British Association for Cognitive and Behavioural Therapy (BABCP), with whom I am an accredited member. For the past eight years I have worked with the Psychology Department of Cheshire & Wirral Foundation NHS Trust. For seven years a large portion of my therapeutic experience was with individuals who have found temporary solutions to generic issues in substance misuse, both in the statutory and voluntary sectors, where I have worked together with my clients to create a trusting therapeutic relationship that lays the foundations within which change can be facilitated. I have also worked as a visiting lecturer at the University of Chester.
