Welcome to Stepping Stones Psychology

Welcome to the official website of Stepping Stones Psychology,  a Nationwide & Worldwide Psychological Service based in United Kingdom.

Stepping Stones Psychology is a private and independent clinical practice offering confidential psychological services in Sheffield,  South Yorkshire (England, United Kingdom). The clinic also delivers telephone and online psychological services both nationally and internationally. Stepping Stones Psychology offer Consultation, Couple Therapy, Family Therapy, Group Therapy, Adult Therapy and Child Therapy – whereas the latter two will be delivered in form of Individual Therapy. The vision of Stepping Stones Psychology is on promoting the emotional health and well-being of the local community and general public to their full potentials.

My name is Sharmi, I am the Principal Psychologist, Founder and Clinical Director of Stepping Stones Psychology. I am a psychologist and integrative practitioner with nearly 15 years’ experience of working within the mental health field. I am also a Trauma and Attachment Specialist. I will be providing a safe place where you can explore any difficulties you may be experiencing and where I will place high value on a strong and supportive therapeutic relationship.

Talking things through with a professional can often help bring some clarity at a time when you are struggling to make sense of how you are feeling. Spending this time to stop and reflect can offer new understandings and paths to move forward, enabling a deeper understanding and acceptance of yourself. Stepping Stones Psychology in Sheffield could help you with this.

I am aware that admitting to a problem and reaching out by seeking professional help can be difficult and requires strength and courage. Talking to someone about our difficulties, our deepest fears, our worries or distress, can generally be a daunting experience, and it is understandably more unnerving when it is with a complete stranger. In order to alleviate some of your apprehensions I have shared a little about myself under the section “About me”. This section also provides information about my training, clinical experiences and qualifications. This is further expanded under the section where I talk about my approach as a psychologist and my values. It can be found under “Philosophy”.

When seeking professional help in the form of therapy, clients often wonder what takes place in a session: You might have a specific therapeutic approach in mind that you would like to avoid; or you may have a preference for a particular method. You might find it helpful to read about the therapeutic approaches I use in Stepping Stones Psychology, which can be viewed by clicking on “Approaches”.

These times apply to psychological services in Sheffield and to a nationwide service in England, U.K. For any international services or online services the times can be negotiable based on a mutually convenient time.
