Carina Scales (UKCP, FPC, BPC)
0797 9064 386
I aim to offer a warm, accepting and confidential space to explore together whatever you choose to bring, at a pace and in a way which suits you best. Feelings of anxiety, panic, miserable, sad, hurt and/or not sure what is wrong but not feeling ‘right’, can be understood through talking and making sense of past and present experiences. I have seen positive changes in people during the 13 years of working as a therapist. My training was intensive with WPF for 7 years.
I understand that you may feel uncertain about embarking on counselling, and for this reason an initial meeting is about 90 minutes to give us an opportunity to ask questions, clarify what you hope to get out of the process and to get a feeling for whether I am the person you would like to work with.
You may want to sort out a specific problem(s), improve your relationships or maybe find ways of changing unhelpful repeating patterns, or overwhelming feelings such as anxieties/panic/loss which are making it difficult for you to feel a sense of well-being.
I have a great deal of experience helping people to make positive life changes and I believe therapy is an opportunity to reflect thoughtfully on current difficulties leading to an opportunity for transformation. I enjoy working in depth which is on going work or we can think about short term of 12 sessions.
If you would like to meet for an initial consultation, please email or telephone and I will contact you the same day, where possible.
My approach is psychoanalytic/psychodynamic with CBT if asked for.
