Caroline Channon, MBACP Registered
I offer one-to-one person-centered counselling in a confidential, supportive and non-judgmental space where you can explore and express any difficult and distressing feelings you may be experiencing in life.
Counselling can be extremely empowering and life enhancing as you begin to learn more about your patterns of behaviour and what has led you to where you find yourself today.
I believe that we are all motivated by an innate tendency to grow to our full physical, psychological, emotional and spiritual potential and that we have vast resources within us for this.
The first session is free of charge giving you a chance to see whether we can work together.
I am currently able to offer appointments on Monday's between 9.30am to 8pm, evening appointments are available Monday to Friday with the last appointment at 8pm. Saturday and Sunday appointments are from 10am to 5pm.
How does counselling work?
There are many different answers to this question. In my opinion, counselling works when it offers you a relationship in which you are heard allowing you to reframe how you view yourself and your life. The counselling relationship is unlike any other. I believe a therapeutic counselling relationship is one where you feel:
- that the counsellor is warm, genuine and invested in you as a person
- safe and comfortable enough to talk about vulnerable feelings and experiences. Yet, challenged and open to considering different points of view
- that you and the counsellor are equal collaborators in the direction of counselling, the goals of counselling and what to focus on
