Carmen Roberts Counselling Limited
My aim is to walk in your shoes, at your pace, and remain on your side - with the added value of seeing your life from a different angle and slowly helping you to feel more positive and achieve your goals.
My approach to counselling and psychotherapy is integrative, that means I have been trained to create and adapt different methods, based upon two key principles; person-centred (which looks at the here and now) and psychodynamic (which focuses on the past).
My counselling room is in a renovated stable block in the grounds and gardens of Malvern View, originally an 18th Century farmhouse in the village of Apperley, located in the centre of a triangle with Cheltenham, Tewkesbury and Gloucester at its points. I offer private, gated parking in a tranquil village setting and with no possibility of being seen or overlooked, it is the ideal place for confidential therapy sessions. The room has glass doors offering views across the countryside and based in stables, the room has an equine design.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have a Foundation Degree in Therapeutic Counselling with Distinction from Gloucestershire University, hold Certificates in Counselling Skills and Studies from the Counselling and Psychotherapy Central Awarding Body (CPCAB) and am a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).
In addition to working in private practice, I worked as an Appropriate Adult for Gloucestershire Constabulary. In this role I offered support to detained adults who suffered with mental health problems to cope with police interviews and time spent in the cells.
I have spent time working in an NHS Eating Disorders clinic, helping in group therapy, and since 2017 have worked at Cruse Bereavement Care offering one-to-one counselling to those who have lost loved ones to suicide, homicide and road traffic accidents.

When it comes to counselling, each person’s life story and how they view the world is unique. Likewise, there is no single approach to identifying and working through a specific issue. Counselling offers you the space to discover new perspectives and can equip you with the skills you need to overcome problems
