Sharon Cameron has extensive experience working with both neurotypical and neurodiverse children in a variety of settings. She works closely with her co-therapist Artemis (Arte), a Certified Therapy Dog, Sharon’s warmth, compassion and calm, soothing energy draw children to her, enabling a deep affinity and rapport and creating a trusting, open and positive experience for the children in her care. Arte plays an important role, too, in helping reduce anxiety, tension, and stress hormones, and of course, helping children to feel less isolated and alone.
Sharon is currently the School Counsellor at Galilee Catholic Primary School in South Melbourne. She graduated from The Australian Institute of Professional Counsellors, majoring in Abuse Counselling, Mindfulness-Based Theories and Grief and Loss Counselling. Sharon has also completed a Certificate in Mindfulness and Wellbeing for Children, is an accredited facilitator of the Peaceful Kids Program and a Certified Facilitator of LEGO® Based Therapy. Arte completed her Certification as a Therapy Dog at Lead the Way Institute.
Sharon is passionate about supporting children to develop lifelong skills and strategies for dealing with anxiety and other emotional or behavioural difficulties. She is dedicated to developing the social and emotional wellbeing of young people through one-on-one counselling and facilitated group sessions. Through Peaceful Kids, Seasons for Growth, Lego® therapy and Social Skills programs, Sharon has helped numerous children to develop positive mental health and wellbeing, building resilience and self-confidence to cope with everyday stresses and developing coping strategies that set them up for life.
