Sharon lives of the island Jersey with her husband, two grown up children and dog.

20 years ago, following a successful career in the finance industry, she decided to change paths and retrained as a Chartered Counselling Psychologist with the British Psychological Society. Thereafter she worked for many years in the mental health service in Jersey as a psychologist, supervisor and trainer before setting up her private psychotherapy practice. In 2020 she was awarded a Doctor of Counselling Psychology and Psychotherapy.

Sharon has a deep interest in, and passion for, healing and the human potential for transformation and growth. She has worked with Shamans for many years and through this interest found her way to holotropic breathwork. After her first holotropic breathwork experience in 2016, she felt she had ‘come home’ and since then it has become an important part of her life, supporting her personally and professionally in her client work. The values, philosophy and compassionate attitude underpinning Holotropic breathwork resonate deeply with her personal values and how she works. She is a certified Holotropic Breathwork facilitator.

Holotropic Breathwork®


Holotropic Breathwork® is a powerful technique for self-healing and self-exploration allowing for greater self-understanding, expansion of self-identity and access to the roots of emotional and psychosomatic challenges one might face. Holotropic Breathwork® comes from the Greek words ‘holos’ (whole) and ‘trepein’ (going to) meaning moving towards wholeness.


GTT is a program for experiencing and studying Holotropic Breathwork® and the transpersonal perspective. It is a two-track program that can be used either to become a certified practitioner or simply to experience this practice in a more in-depth format. It is the best way to spend time with HB co-developer and one of the founders of transpersonal psychology, Stanislav Grof. Although semi-retired, Stan still teaches at some of the six-day training workshops, also called modules.
