Drogheda woman Sharon Oughton runs a psychotherapy practice based in Fair Street. She has published a book for children recently with half of the proceeds going to the charity Barnardos.
She has extensive experience working as a senior team member in Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services and subsequently as Principal Psychotherapist/therapy lead in a specialist team at Crumlin Children’s Hospital.
So she knows a lot about children and what they like.
Which means she is well qualified to write a book for children. Which is exactly what she has done.

The book, with Illustrations by Keir Campbell, is called Hero Girl and is Sharon’s first children’s book she is giving 50% of the sales proceeds to the children’s charity, Barnardos.
