Hi, I'm Caroline. If you are an individual or couple needing support, please get in touch. I am a fully qualified psychotherapist working on Zoom while we are in lockdown. (Usually I work in person as well as on Zoom.)
Whether you have a specific issue you want to work on, you can’t see a way forward or are experiencing a more general sense of dissatisfaction with life, it can be a relief to get support. That has certainly been my experience. I am here to listen and to work with you to find out what you are hoping to change or discover; to stay alongside you until you feel clearer, happier, relieved, more yourself.
I work with whatever you choose to bring: Depression, anxiety, dreams, physical pain, addictions, self-criticism, low self-esteem, relationships (including improving communication, conflict, betrayal and affairs, separation and divorce), trauma and abuse, isolation, bereavement, sexual difficulties and creative blocks.
Each session looks different – it may be that you want to tell your story and have it witnessed. Sometimes clients like to draw or to role-play. Or we may work with your dreams or physical symptoms, your voice or your movements. I follow your lead.
Crucial to the work is our relationship. If you feel safe and sense my respect that is the foundation for good work together. If not you, are better working with someone with whom you can find these key ingredients.
During the pandemic I am seeing clients on Zoom. Usually I see people in person as well as on Zoom for those who live further afield or if getting out is difficult.
If you are part of a group seeking support please contact me and we can discuss this in more detail.

Accredited register membership
