Hi. My name is Carol.
I am a qualified, experienced UKCP registered Counsellor and Psychotherapist. I am supportive and compassionate and offer you empathy and understanding. I am respectful and have a non-judgemental approach. Counselling and Psychotherapy can help you come to terms with problems and difficulties you are experiencing in life. This could be due to relationship issues, problems at work, experiences from your past, eg. abuse or trauma, or current health related issues, anxiety, depression, sleeping and eating problems. These are just a few examples of difficulties that people come to counselling for help with.
Counselling and Psychotherapy can help you heal and grow, whilst being supported through talking and sharing your inner most thoughts and feelings. I offer you a quiet comfortable space where we can work together confidentially. l am patient and interested in how your life experiences affect your sense of being in the world. I am creative in my style of work and am very committed to finding the best way of working to meet your individual needs. The quality of the relationship between myself and my client Is extremely important and I believe this provides the foundation for your personal growth.
Counselling and Psychotherapy can help you express yourself and make sense of your thoughts, feelings, emotions and experiences. This can help you make new life choices for yourself as well as greatly improve your self-esteem and confidence.
I work from my private practice at home, based in Scarborough. Sessions are one hour long and I am available Monday to Friday. I also have some evening appointments available. I offer a long or short term approach.
If you would like to meet me and find out more about what the process involves, I am happy to offer you a free introductory session which is informal and offers a chance to ask any questions you may.

NEW MONTHLY THERAPY GROUP
You may like to consider joining a new therapy group that is starting soon in Scarborough. Facilitated by myself and Phillip Whittington, also a UKCP registered Psychotherapeutic Counsellor, the group will meet on the first Monday of each month 6.30-9.00 p.m. at a central Scarborough location.
A therapy group can be both supportive and nurturing, through times of difficulty. The aim is for you to experience relationships that are based on compassion, non-judgement and absolute confidentiality. The process can help you explore unresolved issues in your life that continue to surface. It can help you find new ways of expressing difficult emotions and help you make new choices for yourself.
If you are interested and would like to find out more please contact me on 07775801487 or Phillip on 07837227921. You can also email me - firstname.lastname@example.org
Fees: Free initial 30 minute consultation in preparation for the group. £40 per 2.5 hr session, per person, per month thereafter.
This will be a group of 6-8 people maximum.
If you are a trainee or a qualified therapist wishing to expand your knowledge and experience of a particular element of counselling theory we offer short training sessions that may be of assistance to you.
This training is for both groups and individuals and will often be facilitated by two UKCP Accredited Psychotherapeutic Counsellors.
