Carole Golten, Dipl. Psych, Dipl CBT
I am a qualified Counsellor/Psychotherapist/Dream Therapist and incorporate CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) if appropriate. Registered with the UKCP, I have been counselling individuals and couples in the London area since 1993.
I work with several approaches, according to what would be helpful to the individual client. This can include helping you to look at how your past experiences continue to affect your current behaviour, relationships, and feelings; identify and change negative thoughts about yourself; contact and explore difficult feelings; and become aware of more aspects of yourself and of your potential.
Counselling offers a safe, supportive way of looking at personal issues. I believe that we are each a unique and complex expression of life, and I will work with you to help you express more of your reality.

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.
UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
