About me

There are time in all our lives when we feel that things have become too much for us and we can't see the wood for the trees! At times like this we can feel stressed and anxious which can in turn affect our confidence and self-esteem not to mention our decision making ability and motivation. We know that talking can help in these situations but the people around us might not always understand or be the able to help.

As a counsellor with 13 years’ experience I can provide a safe, confidential space to explore the issues that are troubling you. When the stresses of modern life become too much, any underlying issues/past traumas can resurface compounding our problems and preventing us from finding a way forward. With the right counselling relationship you can come to understand yourself better and start to make progress which you might otherwise have found difficult to do on your own.

I know it can feel like a big step to see a counsellor so please phone me for a confidential chat on 07966573360 or alternatively email me at caroledpalmer@hotmail.com

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

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.
