About me

A warm welcome to you, my name is Carol, I am an experienced Counsellor having started my counselling training in 2005. I qualified in 2010 with a Foundation Degree.

I consider myself warm and accepting and will try my best to make you feel at ease and comfortable. I do recognise, that it takes courage to take the first step and it is therefore important to me that I make the next steps as easy as possible so that you can begin your therapy journey.

My training enables me to work with a wide range of difficulties that present themselves in life.  Therapy is your own space to process the emotional impact of how you are feeling and how this affects you and your relationships.

You may be feeling lost, angry, misunderstood, perhaps you have heightened anxiety and worry, feeling fearful or generally feeling overwhelmed with all that is happening in your life.

Whatever the causes or measure of your emotional responses, I can support you whilst we explore what is going on, we can work towards finding new coping skills that work for you. I can also help you discover new ways of balanced thinking and healthier alternatives to managing situations, helping you to improve your wellbeing.

I qualified 10 years ago, attaining a Foundation Degree in Counselling and Psychotherapy Level 5 with commendation from Greenwich University (Accredited Course). I have previous experience working in GP surgeries (IAPT) and also working with young people in school settings. I have worked in Private Practice for over 8 years.

My training includes Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, this enables me to work well with clients presenting with Generalised Anxiety Disorder, Social Anxiety, OCD, Panic Disorders, Phobias, and Intrusive Thoughts. All of which can vastly affect the lives of those who suffer from such disorders.

I can offer daytime and evening appointments, I am flexible in the way I offer appointments. The majority of my clients have busy lives and are juggling multiple commitments, therefore I do my best to accommodate.

Please feel free to contact me,  it is important to me that you find the right counsellor. There will be no pressure on you to book an appointment with me, in fact if I consider that I am not best suited to help you I can refer you to a colleague. Should you chose to engage with me, I will guide you onto the next stage. I have made everything as straightforward as possible so that you can begin as soon as you are ready.

Member organisations

BACP

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.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
