About Me

Sharon Calver
Psychotherapeutic Counsellor

I am a qualified, UKCP accredited, psychotherapeutic counsellor. I work with an integrative, relational approach. This approach draws on a range of psychological theories which means I can tailor our work together, to best fit your individual needs within a safe environment with compassion and honesty.

During my counselling career I have sought counselling experience in many different settings to broaden my knowledge and understanding of the counselling sector in Cambridgeshire. It has also helped me to gain experience with a wide range of client groups.

A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step

My areas of counselling work have included medical patients within the NHS (Peterborough City Hospital), females within the criminal justice system (Women’s Aid), young adults (YMCA), survivors of sexual abuse and rape (Sexual Assault Referral Centre), couples and family members (Peterborough Relationship Support) and teenagers (Children Our Ultimate Investment).

Alongside my private practice I continue to work for Relate Cambridge as a relationship counsellor.

I am a registered member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP) and an accredited member of the UK Council of Psychotherapy (UKCP).

Like all professional counsellors I attend regular clinical supervision to ensure that I am practising ethically and maintaining the professional standards required, to provide you with safe, effective and supportive counselling.
