Hello my name is Carol Gamble. I am a fully qualified and experienced Counsellor offering confidential counselling and psychotherapy to individuals, couples and groups. I work with short, medium and long term therapy dependant on the needs of the individual. My main model of psychotherapy is Transactional Analysis but I also incorporate some Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Neuro-Linguistic Programming. I work with those who are experiencing a wide range of emotional and psychological difficulties. 

This includes but is not limited to:

  • Abuse
  • Addiction
  • Anxiety
  • Bereavement
  • Confidence Issues
  • Depression
  • Relationship Issues
  • Weight Issues.

My counselling room is within my home in the village of Bretherton. It is comfortable, welcoming and convenient to reach with off street parking.

Getting Started

To set up an initial session my mobile is 07939223675. You can either ring or text me, or log onto my website or click here to send me an email. We will then be able to discuss what you want to get out of therapy.  If you are happy to work with me and I feel I can help you we will then arrange a second session agree a mutually convenient time for you to see me either weekly, or fortnightly.

Member organisations

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Other areas of counselling I deal with

I have worked extensively with clients who have food and alcohol addiction, and the issues that arise around weight loss and weight management.

Key details

Wheelchair user access
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.
