Dr Carole le Darcy
I am a Counselling Psychologist trained in a variety of therapeutic approaches and modalities. I am therefore able to offer you a comprehensive assessment of your individual needs which will form the basis of a unique and bespoke treatment package designed to assist you in reaching your goals.
I have a vast experience of working with all manner of issues that may manifest in presentations such as depression and/or anxiety/stress. My familiarity of working with such informs me that there are many underlying causes. I therefore utilise my therapeutic skills to work with your presenting symptoms and also their origins.
I am accomplished at working with most psychological problems and stress related difficulties that may interfere with your day to day living. I am also proficient at working with issues pertaining to dependence upon alcohol and other substances.
I am HCPC registered and my therapeutic practice strictly adheres to the code of conduct required by the British Psychological Society. In order to maintain your confidentiality and comfort, I work from premises that are private and discreet.
My premises are easily accessible, there is ample free parking and excellent public transport links.

I am able to provide means tested considerations in relation to fees and provide concessionary rates for students and the unwaged.
