Carina Scales (UKCP, FPC, BPC)
Hello, if you have feelings of anxiety or panic you may wish to consider counselling. I aim to offer a safe space in where we can explore the nature of your difficulties, with the aim of moving towards lasting change.
There might be other reasons why you are thinking about having counselling ..... a specific problem, a wish to improve relationships or to find out why there are unhelpful repeating patterns in your life. Or there might be overwhelming feelings of being miserable, sad, depressed.
I understand that embarking on counselling can feel daunting, hence an initial consultation is an opportunity to meet and find out out if I can help you and whether you feel you would like to work with me.
I have 16 years of experience working as a psychodynamic /integrative therapist. I trained at WPF in London, and extended my training (which was 7 years in total).
Do not hesitate to email or telephone and leave a message I will contact you the same day, where possible.
My approach is psychoanalytic/psychodynamic with elements of CBT if appropriate.
