Caroline Smith - MBACP (Accred).
I am an integrative counsellor based in Harrogate offering both long and short term counselling. I am experienced in working with many issues and specialise in the field of attachment. I offer both face to face and telephone counselling.
Most people feel overwhelmed and 'burnt out' at some point in their life. Often we know what the problem is, it might be work related, personal or a combination of things. Maybe it is less clear, a general awareness of feeling low and unhappy much of the time without really knowing why.
It can be invaluable to have somewhere private and confidential to talk. To think more clearly about what isn't working, the reasons why and how things could be different going forward.
My approach incorporates a fundamental belief in the core self which might have been negatively impacted by life events both recent and past. I believe that whilst we cannot change such events, we can seek to live more peacefully with them in the present. This is achieved by learning to trust our own process of change and growth leading to a lasting and sustainable improved sense of wellbeing.
