About me

Carol Watkins MSc, BA, Dip SPTI
Gestalt Psychotherapist
(UKCP registered)

I have practised as a therapist for over 25 years. I have been involved in the work of four local counselling services as well as being in private practice.
I work short-term with both individuals and couples who have a particular concern in their life. I also work longer term with those who wish to explore patterns and relationships in more depth.
At present I am working on zoom with couples from anywhere in the world.
