Shelley Hart, Counsellor


Warm, welcoming & down-to-earth

Life has taught me that for many reasons, the world can be difficult & distressing; we can become stuck, overwhelmed & feel alone. My personal journey led me to become a Counsellor to be someone people can turn to – helping to make sense of their emotions & behaviours to make positive changes & move forward in their lives. I truly believe everyone has the potential & deserves the chance to lead the life they want.  

In my prior corporate career, I travelled extensively, both in Sales & delivering People Development, Coaching & Project Management internationally. This allowed me to work with & appreciate people from many walks of life, continuing in my Counselling Practice today. For you, this means that I've learnt to value people as unique individuals where I appreciate how tough it can be to share thoughts & feelings, so how we will work together respects that.


As a member of the BACP, I'm fully qualified & work ethically & in your interest. In addition to my Private Practice, my Counselling background includes working with Cruse Bereavement Care, St Joseph's Hospice, Snowcamp (a young people's sports charity) & ABL Dayhab.  My experience has involved Counselling & Group Therapy, designing mental health programmes & facilitating workshops. I'm also a qualified Clinical Hypnotherapist & Fellow Member of Creative Counsellors - if desired, I can incorporate creative interventions in our work together in the form of guided meditations, working with metaphors, nesting dolls & more. Rather than 'labelling' the areas I work with, my experience includes working with all manner of emotional difficulties & life events that prevent us from leading the life we want. My Counselling experience, combined with my corporate background, means I bring a warm, down-to-earth approach to my work. 


When I'm not working I enjoy yoga, long walks, great food & the odd loud rock gig, music festival & fringe theatre production. I love to travel & continue to tick distant cultures off my bucket list.
