A little about me
Hi my name is Sharon Lagden. I am a Professional counsellor specialising in grief and loss, relationships, stress and anxiety, counselling for depression and cancer support.
I have a wealth of experience and a passion for helping others. As a Professional Counsellor I want to help those who have lost their way and help them to regain their sense of self and live the life that they deserve.
Talking to a Professional Counsellor can have many positive benefits and can change your life. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain.
If this sounds like you, then call me, we can start the journey together.
I SPECIALISE IN
Grief and Loss
Stress and Anxiety
As a professionally trained and qualified Counsellor, I believe its important to be affiliated with professional counselling bodies. I am a member of the following counselling organizations. These bodies continually provide support to all counsellors as mentors and to improve counselling skills and follow a strict code of counselling ethics.

For 35 years of my working life I worked in IT, for 10 of those years I was an IT Project Manager. But since being diagnosed with Breast Cancer in 2009, I decided to de-stress my life and find a new direction. I have always been a caring empathetic person and so decided to re-train as a counsellor.
I was born in the UK, lived in France, Sydney and then the Sunshine Coast. I have been happily married for the last 24 years, to my husband Kevin.
My life has given me so many experiences, which I believe has shaped me into the person I am today.
