Carole Freeman MBACP BA(HONS)
I have always worked in supportive empowering environments. I was a foster carer for over twenty five years I worked with families in crisis. The experience involved working with abuse of all kinds. I learnt that building self esteem, assertiveness and self belief can prevent being badly treated by others. Later Working with Cruse Bereavement Care as a counsellor was an invaluable part of my training. I also gained extensive learning working within an anger management group.
I am an experienced counsellor of over thirteen years offering a professional and confidential service. My counselling appointments are tailored to meet your individual needs. I use many techniques and approaches to support you. I provide a safe space built on trust and understanding so that you can explore your feelings and work with solutions.
My aim is to relate to my clients with honesty and congruence. I offer a service that embraces diversity. I offer flexible appointment times. A confidential healing space. Easy parking and a disabled friendly ground floor room.

I adapt my counselling to meet you. Where you are in your life without judgement. I have a warm and professional approach. We can work with whatever is present for you, or more historic exploration if that is what you need to do. I offer short or long term face to face sessions. Whatever is best for you.
I have experience of working with a broad range of issues. These include :
Childhood issues, Depression, Sexual abuse, Physical abuse, Long term health problems, Anger, Low Self Esteem/Confidence. Bereavement. Relationships (couples and individuals).
If you would like to make an appointment with me. We would agree a mutual time. The session would be for one hour. During this first hour we would decide together if we can work together.There is no obligation. I would be able to offer you an idea of how many sessions you may require.
I am invested in my own on going professional development and regularly attend further training. I follow the BACP's ethical framework.
