Carol Wall Clarity Counselling MBACP Accred. Individual & Couple Counsellor
Hello. I am an experienced counsellor working with both individuals and couples. My aim will be for us to work together to create a safe confidential setting where you can explore the issues in your life. I adopt a Person-Centred Humanistic approach, which means that I will not judge you, but will try my best to understand you. I believe that it’s important for you to feel that you set the agenda, so that we talk about the areas that matter to you. You can talk about your concerns and I will support you in dealing with the challenges you are facing; I will work with you to help you to find the best way forward.
I have 20 years of Counselling and Psychotherapy experience, working in the NHS, voluntary and statutory services and private practice. As well as working in private practice I am currently a Senior Clinician in a London based addiction service, a Relate Couples Counsellor and a Clinical Supervisor for MIND.
I am a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy and MBACP and I subscribe and adhere to their code of ethics. More information relating to this can be found on the BACP website.
I respect and celebrate diversity and value each individual as a unique human being, I aim to understand and support you whatever your background or beliefs.
How I Can Help
At times we all experience difficulties in our lives - stress, depression and anxiety are common in today's world. This does not mean we should shoulder these burdens alone. Many of us find it beneficial to share our thoughts and feelings with a supportive professional. Much of my work focuses on the stresses of everyday life and how that stress impacts on our relationships. I also specialise in treating clients with a wide range of:
- addiction issues (substance and alcohol abuse, gambling, sexual),
- personal trauma
- relationship issues
- family issues
- fertility issues.
I work with many people who have deep seated issues and many who simply need to reflect on the trials of modern living.
How long we will work for
I offer long and short term individual therapy; my sessions are 50 minutes long. Most people see me on a weekly basis. We will continue to work together for as long as you need. Your needs in therapy will be unique to you and how long we see each other is dependent upon this. Some people come to therapy on a short term basis and others find it more beneficial to remain in therapy for longer. Counselling and Psychotherapy offer you a space to explore any issues that are troubling you.
The Next Step
You can contact me via email or telephone. If you would like to speak to me in person, please call 07740867724 and leave me a message. I will get back to you promptly.People often feel anxious about the first meeting, or have questions they would like to ask and it can help to relieve the anxiety by speaking on the telephone beforehand.
By considering therapy you have already taken the first step to helping yourself to make positive changes, be brave and take the next step to improve your health and happiness
