Carla Burns Counselling MBACP
I am an experienced psychotherapeutic counsellor, offering a non-judgemental space for you to explore whatever is troubling you.
I have worked with people suffering with grief, heartache, loss, anxiety, depression, shame, isolation, trauma, procrastination, low self-esteem, fearfulness, relationship difficulty, anger, emptiness, and overwhelm.
I practise integrative counselling, meaning that I draw from a range of approaches depending on your needs and strengths. I mainly use psychodynamic, Jungian, gestalt, humanistic, and transpersonal approaches.
I see our relationship as central to the counselling process. I offer support and challenge, working collaboratively and respecting your autonomy.
Before training as a counsellor, I studied Psychology (MA) and worked in a range of settings, including providing therapy in an NHS service for people experiencing anxiety and depression.
I come to counselling with firsthand experience of long-term therapy and a personal understanding of the benefits and challenges of the therapeutic journey.
