Carol Bodza BA (Hons) CBT MBACP (Reg)
Why counselling and what do I have to offer?
Most people have times in their life when things become overwhelming, difficult and complicated and we feel the need to look beyond friends and family for help.
Trained professional support from a well-qualified counsellor gives you the opportunity to find the solution to problems that may be preventing you from living the life you want to lead.
First, I will create a safe, non-judgmental and confidential space ensuring that you feel heard and respected by me.
I am happy to meet with you in either Shrewsbury or Ludlow at my dedicated counselling offices.
Types Of Counselling
I am qualified and work in what is known as a ‘Person Centred’ way, which means that I strongly believe that you hold the answers to your own problems. Through our work together my role as a trained counsellor is to help you find the right answers to your problems.
In addition, I am also qualified and experienced in working in what is called an ‘Integrative approach’. This means that I take my Person-centred roots and offer further support from other counselling approaches which may best support you.
My qualification in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) also allow me to offer a pure CBT approach to counselling that helps you manage problems by changing the way we think and behave.
My aim as a counsellor is to offer you the time and space for us to work together in a way that best supports you in moving forward in your life.

My experiences as a counsellor are wide and varied dealing with a whole range of long term and short term problems, These range from depression, anxiety and panic, chronic health issues, self esteem and body image to breakdown of relationships and loss of employment.
