'Transforming Anxiety into Strength for 'Better Tomorrows'

Hi, I'm Sharon McHugh, a Therapeutic Integrative Counsellor and Clinical Hypnotherapist, specialising in ADHD Anxiety and Trauma. As well as using Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Solution Focused Hypnotherapy and drawing on skills from Dialectical Behavioural Therapy, I also use 'The Rewind Technique' and 'Integral Eye Movement Therapy', as I believe the way we work together should be as individual as you. I offer sessions both in person in Wickford Essex, and online.

I completely understand that seeking help can be difficult.

When your ADHD Anxiety and Trauma symptoms leave you feeling overwhelmed and exhausted, it can be easy to feel alone and confused, but it doesn’t have to be that way. I am here to provide a space where you can be yourself and be truly heard, allowing you to explore and understand your challenging thoughts and feelings.

My sessions are directed by you and what you want to discuss. You know yourself better than anyone. You may not have the words to describe or make sense of your feelings and thoughts, which is where I come in. I'll ask gentle questions and help you explore your thoughts and feelings, guiding you towards understanding why you feel the way you do and feeling like yourself again.

Battling with the thoughts, feelings and self sabotaging behaviours brought on by ADHD Anxiety and Trauma can be an exhausting place to be, but we will work through together in a way that makes sense to you and at a pace that feels right for you. Please feel free to contact me for a free, no obligation 15 minute chat.

My approach

I offer a warm and understanding approach that puts you at the heart of each session. This is your time to talk about whatever you need, and I'm here to support you in a space that is safe and non-judgemental where you can speak freely. I listen closely and ask gentle questions that help you understand the reasons behind your thoughts and feelings. Together we'll find ways to move past them and work towards a better more peaceful place.

Be in control

Seeking help is the first and most crucial step towards taking control of your happiness. My sessions are all about enabling you to work through whatever problems you might have in your own preferred way. You are the architect of your own happiness.

No judgement

I understand that opening up to friends and family can be hard. That is why I give you a professional space that is totally non-judgemental and confidential, with no influences and no pressure to do anything that makes you uncomfortable.

Explore your feelings

This is your chance to express and process any difficult thoughts or feelings, whatever they might be. By talking freely about what’s going on in your head and being truly listened to, you can make better sense of your issues and consequently feel less imprisoned by them.
