Hello, I'm Carl and I run my psychotherapeutic practice called Think Feel Act (www.ThinkFeelAct.life) in north Chelmsford, Essex.
I am a BACP registered and experienced psychotherapeutic counsellor dealing with issues of stress, anxiety, depression, low self-confidence, isolation, past traumas, substance abuse, addictions, and violence.
Alternatively, if you feel that something is not right inside of you and you’ve been getting on in life in spite of it, and you feel that it needs to be addressed then through psychotherapy I can support you in exploring this with the aim of getting clarity and relief through new perspectives and choices.
Psychotherapy can bring life changing experiences (literally) by challenging and altering these limiting and harmful beliefs, feelings and behaviours. Starting therapy can feel like a heavy and daunting task, but it needn’t be. Using my experience my role is to provide you with a supportive, confidential and respectful space so that together we can:
- Make sense of your past experiences and find new perspectives
- Discover yourself in dealing with the present, and to cope with your challenges
- Feel confident in yourself and look forward to your future
What you bring to therapy is personal and can also be profoundly private. Ensuring your confidentiality and your safety are of upmost importance to me so that you can feel safe and protected to explore freely all aspects of yourself, without fear and without judgement.
You can read more about how I can support you on my website by clicking the 'visit website' button at the top of this page or go to http://www.ThinkFeelAct.life
I offer face-to-face sessions in my practice in North Chelmsford, or via video calls such as Zoom.
I offer a free, initial 30-minute phone consultation so you can get a feel of how we can work together. There's no ongoing obligation after this initial free consultation.

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.
