Carol Harrington MNCS Accredited Counsellor and Supervisor
Hello, I am a counsellor with many years experience empowering adults to bring change into their lives, changes in feelings, thoughts and behaviour. As a compassionate listener I endeavour to enable clients to gain insight into themselves, find a way forward and work towards peace of mind. My work experience covers working with a range of issues but I have a particular interest in trauma, abuse and bereavement. I am also an accredited supervisor for counsellors and others working in supporting professions. As an integrative counsellor I may use and suggest a variety of methods such as creative tools, mindfulness, journal writing... As each person is a unique individual I try to find a way that will particularly be helpful to you, whether you want short term work to deal with a particular issue, or more long term work to gain deeper understanding of yourself. I think being welcoming and kindly is an important aspect of my work and I would hope that you would feel comfortable in my room. It is a space to step outside of your life for a short time and attend to yourself in a way that most of us don’t in our busy lives – some special time just for you. I offer a cheaper rate for an initial session, and also concessionary rates may be negotiated for further sessions. The initial session is an opportunity for us to meet and consider working together, there is no obligation to continue if you choose not to. About me personally - I am a practising Buddhist, nature lover, veg grower and dog owner/walker..
