Caroline Hudson MBACP (accredited)
Beverley & Molescroft Surgery
30 Lockwood Road
I live in East Yorkshire and have a private practice in Beverley. I am fully qualified BACP accredited counsellor. Having had experience of counselling myself as a young adult I became interested in counselling as a career and now have over 14 years experience as a counsellor working in a variety of settings both with teenagers 16+ and adults. As a BACP registered counsellor I adhere to the BACP's ethical framework.
My counselling room is located within the same building as the Beverley and Molescroft Surgery but I am not part of the NHS and no records go on your own NHS notes. I offer a confidential service.
I believe in trying to make counselling a down to earth experience. I do not believe in using jargon or making lots of notes and I aim to to make my clients feel as comfortable and welcome as possible. My aim is to try and really understand what is going on for you and to help you make sense of it. Like all counsellors I work in a non judgemental way meaning that you won’t be judged.
There is still some remaining stigma in society about seeking counselling. I believe that seeking a space and time to talk to someone about your problems is a really sensible and rational choice. Some people come with a specific problem they want to deal with, others know just that there is something wrong without a clear idea of what it is. Either way I can help you understand what is going wrong and help you to find a way through it.
I have a special interest and experience in working with anxiety, depression and eating disorders. I also have over 10 years experience in working with young adults (aged 16-25).

Young People's Counselling
INTRODUCTORY SESSION - £40
This session lasts about an hour and is a chance to talk through why you would like counselling and if counselling would be right for you. It gives you a change to meet me and decide if you would like to work together. There is no commitment to further sessions. If you think you would like further sessions we would make a plan together.
I offer both short and long term counselling. Some people prefer to have a limited number of sessions (6-10) to focus on an issue that is causing them problems at that moment. Some people prefer a more open ended arrangement so that they can explore a number of issues which perhaps go back historically in order to find a better way of living in the present. I offer both possibilities and we will discuss this in your first session.
I hold a current enhanced DBS Certificate.
I am an AVIVA approved counsellor.
There is free parking at the surgery.
