Carina Scales (UKCP, FPC, BPC)
0797 9064 386
I have 13 years of experience working with symptoms such as anxieties, panic, panic attacks, depression, repeated patterns of behaviour (but you don't know why), relationship difficulties, low self confidence, difficulty communicating feelings and emotions, anger, confusion, procrastinating and bereavement to name a few. I offer short and long term counselling.
Seeing a counsellor can feel quite daunting, it is important to meet for an initial consultation, because this is an opportunity for us to find out whether I am the therapist you feel comfortable to talk with.
I aim to offer a safe and non-judgemental space to think about your difficulties so that we can understand them together. Talking to somone impartial can help clarify how you feel in a difficult situation and find a way forward.
If you experience patterns in your life that keep being repeated, then a psychodynamic way of working is to look closely at those patterns, (sometimes originating in childhood), and explore them to find ways to make changes or develop alternative ways of coping.
