Integrity, Trust and Respect are the foundation stones for a sound and rewarding therapeutic relationship. I recognise the thread of energy that has brought therapist and the client together is often beyond the presenting issue. The space of psychotherapy is a sacred space where the deepest of human pain and joy can be shared.

    Psychotherapy is really two words placed together: Psycho coming from the Greek word Psyche which means breath, soul and life and Therapeia also originating Greek which means attending to pain, illness or disability. Psychotherapy therefore is attending to the pain of the inner self.

    Psychotherapy provides individuals with the opportunity to explore, understand and face the challenges that affect their lives. It is not by any means exclusively for people who are unwell. Healthy vibrant and intelligent people can and do benefit from psychotherapy.

    10 Questions with Sharon Snir

    • What led you to choose psychotherapy or counselling as a profession?

    • One can often remember a moment in their own childhood when somethng calls to you and you know that is who I am. When I was aout 5 years old I watched a Christmas movie on television about a husband and wife who opened their home to troubled children. I knew at that moment I wanted many children of my own and that I would help people with problems. As it turned out I have five adult children now and a number of grandchildren. Of course I had to have and heal my own problems before I stepped into the healing profession but that is how it all began.

    Seeking and finding the right individual to support us through a challenging period of our lives can be one of the most rewarding experiences. I welcome each individual who walks through my door knowing it has taken courage, purpose and a burning desire to find understanding, resolution and peace.
