Carolina Benitez-Certified Relate Relationship & Young Persons Counselling
Hello and welcome!
As a qualified Relate, relationship and integrative counsellor, I offer individuals, couples and young persons counselling. My specialised area is working with couples, with relationship challenges, stresses and issues.
When working with young people, I help support them with difficulties such as anxiety, depression, and for problems arising from school, friends and family life.
I help people clarify their issues and focus on how they can develop strengths and skills to overcome internal and external obstacles in the way of reaching happiness and fulfilment.
Work is carried out by applying different modalities such as humanistic, systemic, psychodynamic and transactional analysis.
