Craig has a background in business management and has always enjoyed the challenge of working with people of all ages and from all walks of life.

Moving into the field of counselling has afforded him the privilege of bearing witness to stories that have challenged and controlled the lives of his clients.

 

Craig takes an integrated approach to therapy utilising a number of modalities that best support the identified goals of clients.  

In recent years, Craig has noticed an increase of referrals from men seeking support in addressing addictions, problematic sexual behaviour and transitions through ages and stages of life.  Appreciating each have unique stories to share, ones that began in the family of origin and ones that continue to influence a sense of self and agency.

Sheryl Coast C (3).png

Specialities

Grief, Loss, Self-Esteem, Spiritual or Personal Development,

Managing Significant Life Changes and Crisis, Anxiety and Depression, Supervision of Pastoral Carers.

Adults 18+


Sheryl believes that a good counselling relationship can really help to move people out of feeling stuck in negative emotions, which may be holding them back from experiencing life to the full. She feels that it is a great privilege to be included in the support circle of her clients, and she loves to walk with people through their challenges, providing a safe and caring environment for change and growth.

 

She understands through personal experience, that people going through grief and loss, depression and/or anxiety, can be poorly understood. Sheryl works to understand, encourage, affirm and validate her clients wherever they may be in their journey. She also gently challenges people to explore new avenues of personal development, bolster self-confidence and self-esteem, and to consider new concepts or ways of being.

 

Sheryl works with adults 18+ and particularly enjoys working with adults 18-30 in their crucial identity phase of life.

 

Modalities: Client-centred, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Psychotherapy and Emotionally Focused Therapy for Individuals.
