About me


My name is Camilla and I am a qualified and experienced Counsellor and Cognitive Behavioural Therapist. I am a registered member of the BACP and work within their Ethical Framework.

Throughout my therapeutic work i aim to:

. Empower and help people to heal

. Develop strategies for dealing with stress, anxiety, depression and trauma

. Understand how past issues may be continuing to impact on daily life

. Reduce self-doubt and raise self esteem.

I have always had a passion for helping people to feel better about themselves and knew at an early age that this was the work I wanted to do. Over the years I have followed different paths but all with the same aim of helping people to feel better in their lives. Counselling offers a safe environment where painful feelings can be expressed and explored.

I have extensive experience working with adults, young people and children, working within Warwickshire in private practice and as a school based counsellor in Primary and Secondary Schools. As a school counsellor I work with children from 5 years upwards. When working with children I use more of a creative approach that is suitable and appropriate for their age. Through out my work as a counsellor I have encountered a wide range of issues like anger, bereavement, self-harm, low self -esteem, suicidal thoughts and anxiety and depression. I also work in the voluntary sector within Barnardos working with parents from a wide variety of backgrounds with different presenting issues that have impacted on mental health such as postnatal depression, fear, isolation, trauma and work related issues.

I also offer my services at Learn Direct which is the Uk's largest provider of skills training and employment services, I offer counselling to service users who may need help with building up their confidence or a range of different issues that may be affecting them securing employment.

I have four years experience working within a counselling service where many of my clients had experienced Domestic Violence and Abuse, my work and training has given me a wide range of experience working with women focusing on giving them empowerment and confidence.

I am a qualified Cognitive Behavioural Therapist, CBT is particularly useful for depression and anxiety and anger problems, focusing on how your thoughts and beliefs affect your feelings and behaviour and teaches coping skills for dealing with different problems.

I use my life experiences and I feel it enhances my work, I work on both a short and long term basis with clients according to preference and need. The initial session is an opportunity to explore your reasons for coming to counselling and for any questions you may have. I offer both daytime and evening appointments.

Now offering confidence and self esteem workshops for children and teenagers.

Are anxiety issues, depression, low self esteem and confidence affecting your child's life?? Young people face many pressures in every day life, mental health is an important aspect of a young persons life. Too often young people are suffering from mental health related issues that go unrecognised. Early intervention is crucial. But the good news is fortunately they do not have to cope alone. Here's how our workshops can help, we understand that group work can be a scary process, that's why we put immense energy into creating a welcoming , safe, calm environment. We are fully qualified with a full DBS check. We also offer evidence based treatment which is fast and affordable. At present we are running three groups. Age 4 to 9 years, Age 10 to 13 years and Age 14 to 17 years

Self- esteem is extremely important to the happiness of children and teens.
1 in every 5 children will experience a mental health issue, it has been found that self-talk is behind depression and anxiety, so it is important to teach positive self-talk, research suggests that early intervention is crucial.
The Workshops offer support to children and teenagers aged 4 -16 covering...

Anxiety management
