Carol Carrington Counsellor and Psychotherapist
Hello I'm Carol.
Registered Member of UKCP and BACP.
I am a qualified Therapeutic Counsellor and Psychotherapist with several years experience.As an Integrative Practitioner I bring together different approaches to therapy, considering a person as a whole and providing counselling and psychotherapy which is tailored to suit your individual needs and circumstances, on a short or long term basis. I work with adults from aged 18 years onward and I am based in a central location of Newcastle.
I am a sincere person with a warm, contemplative and sensitive manner. My genuine and honest approach is focused on providing a confidential, non-judgemental environment where a person can feel valued and respected whilst discussing issues with which they are having difficulties. I believe in the restorative qualities of therapy, the potential for change and the opportunity for personal growth. My clinical practice is based on integrity, communicating on an equal level, whilst acknowledging a person's right to benefit from professional knowledge and competence of a high standard.
I look forward to meeting you.
