My name is Sharon Ratcliff and I am the founder of Wellbeing Counselling Lincoln. I have counselled in a range of settings including Lincolnshire Counselling, Lincoln YMCA as well as on behalf of the Diocese of Lincoln. I now work in private practice.
Trained with Rape Crisis
I have also trained with Rape Crisis as a Volunteer Support Worker. In this role I support women who have experienced sexual violence. This training and experience enables me to work in private practice with both men and women who have experienced any form of sexual violence at any point in their lives.
You Don’t Need to be in Crisis…
My belief is that you don’t need to be in crisis, that counselling is a positive step to take to improve wellbeing. Better emotional wellbeing may help avoid problems reoccurring in the future, as well as possibly preventing or reducing the impact of depression, anxiety and stress. Whilst there is no “magic” cure, counselling can certainly help individuals to build coping strategies and resilience.
If you are in a state of crisis, counselling can help by providing emotional support, helping you to express difficult feelings whilst reducing the sense of confusion.
