About me

I offer a warm welcome and a peaceful environment to talk. If you have never had counselling before you may be wondering how it can help. Talking to a counsellor in confidence gives you a private place to give space to your concerns with someone who wants to - and can - help you.  I am non-judgmental so you will be treated with respect and consideration, wherever you find yourself, whatever is troubling you. our sessions are centred upon you as a unique individual and the issues you want to bring into the room. 

During your sessions I listen carefully to you and to how your concerns are affecting your life.  You will find that talking in a relaxed setting can help by allowing you to clarify your thoughts and feelings so that the way forward becomes less daunting. 

Couples Counselling:
Having relationship counselling does not mean your relationship has failed but that you would like it to improve in some way. Whether yours is a new relationship or a long-term one, by looking at repeated patterns, unhelpful habits and difficult issues I can support you and your partner in finding ways to understand and communicate with each other better and regain emotional closeness.  problems are normal and can be handled given the right support.

I am a registered member of BACP* and can help with a range of issues including, but not limited to: Anxiety, Depression and SAD (seasonal affective disorder), Anger management, PTSD, Hoarding disorder, decision-making, Family relationships, Obsessions and compulsive behaviour, Over-eating, Self-Esteem, Marital difficulties, Bereavement and loss.

"Caroline helped me through a difficult, stressful few months after moving to Lincoln. She was very understanding and easy to talk to. I would highly recommend her to anyone who needs help with stress and depression or any other emotional problems."  - Chris, Lincoln.

Other areas of counselling I deal with

People who have suffered abuse or neglect in childhood can often develop severe anxiety or anger issues in adult life.  Symptoms of this can be difficult to live with for their family and close friends.  I am happy to see you if you are struggling to live with someone in your family who lives in the aftermath of trauma.

One to one Consultation (half-hour): Free
One to one session:  £28

Couples/family Consultation: £12

Further information

The consultation lasts 30 minutes and is an opportunity for us to meet.  It gives you the chance to see if you would like to work with me and ask me any questions you may have about counselling.  I will let you know if I can help you and explain how I work.
