"Making your mark on the world is hard. If it were easy, everybody would do it. But it's not. It takes patience, it takes commitment, and it comes with plenty of failure along the way. The real test is not whether you avoid this failure, because you won't. It's whether you let it harden or shame you into inaction, or whether you learn from it; whether you choose to persevere."
Barack Obama

Online Network

Sharon ensures I stay focused on my objectives and there is this great feeling of us all being in this together, with nobody being judgemental.

Talking Therapies Online Network

Talking Therapies clients can access the dedicated online social networking hub called SHaRON (Support, Hope and Recovery Online Network). It provides a confidential and anonymous environment for people to share their experiences and to talk to other people in similar situations. The site is managed by the clinical team at Talking Therapies and people who have finished treatment.

Within SHaRON people can chat, post blogs, participate in forums or simply read what everyone else is talking about. Peer to peer support is a great way to help recovery and prevent relapse.


SHaRON is only available to invited users of Talking Therapies. It is not open to members of the public. If you are a Talking Therapies client and would like to join, please speak to your Therapist.



If you are a clinician and would like to know more about SHaRON for your service please call Jonathon Burton on: 0118 982 2931
