Carol Bennett MSc CTA (P) UKCP Registered MBACP (Accred)
Hello. I'm an experienced therapist working with individuals and couples from my home in Charlton, near Andover. I offer both long term and short term support with a wide range of life issues.
I offer an initial half hour meeting which is free from charge. Here you can come and share what has brought you to therapy and we can see if working together feels right.
I feel that the biggest step is acknowledging we need some help and reaching out for that first contact.
My home is situated in a peaceful location and there is parking directly outside.
I welcome enquiries by email, telephone or letter. You may find it helpful to view my website in order to get a more informed picture of the way in which I work.

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.
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

I believe counselling to be a process by which we can get to know ourselves at a deeper level. This can lead us towards self-acceptance and encourage us to have compassion for ourselves. Sharing thoughts and feelings within a trusting relationship with a therapist can help us to communicate more honestly in our personal worlds. We can then become more fulfilled and satisfied in our relationships, giving us a greater sense of well-being
