MISSION AND HISTORY
At SHARE, we believe that the most important thing in life is the quality of our relationships - with each other, the wider community and ourselves. We recognise that we all have the need to belong and the right to feel valued, but life events gift us individual frames of reference that dictate, at times, our reactions. Sometimes these can leave us (at best) feeling lost or (at worst) traumatised. Talking to a counsellor in a safe space provides the opportunity for these experiences to be shared, our feelings to be expressed and hopefully for some resolution. For a young person, this process may have extra importance since it plays a vital part in providing a positive formative experience.
Working for SHARE can be challenging, but very rewarding. There is a great need for the counselling provision we offer and as an agency we are constantly evolving to meet the needs of our clients. If you feel you would like to contribute 3 hrs a week, either in the capacity of Counsellor, Supervisor or Co-ordinator, please see our current vacancies page.
SHARE wishes to ensure everyone else’s well-being, mirrors the ethos of the organisation and continues to maintain the safe space for our clients. To this end we do all we can to promote self and other care and support. SHARE is a not for profit organisation. Its policies and procedures reflect the BACP Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy.
