Caroline Brown, Reg. MBACP, Individuals and Couples
I offer a safe and comfortable place to talk in confidence about things that are troubling you or that you want clarity on. I am an experienced qualified Couples Counsellor and can help you and your partner through relationship difficulties.
Since 2011 I have been supporting clients dealing with wide-ranging issues including: anxiety, depression, bereavement, addiction, relationship difficulties, domestic abuse, self esteem, suicidal thoughts and self-harm.
My practice is open to adults over 18 years and welcomes diverse nationalities, ethnicities, beliefs and genders. I have had personal counselling from time to time in my own life and understand that coming to see someone you have never met can be daunting. With professional knowledge and personal experience I give my best to make the experience positive and effective for every client.
I offer new clients a 40 minute consultation to give them the opportunity to meet me before deciding if they want to work with me.
The initial consultation lasts approximately 30 - 45 minutes and is an opportunity for us to meet with no obligation on you to arrange further sessions. It gives you the chance to see if you would like to work with me and to ask me any questions you have about counselling. I will let you know if I can help you and explain how I work. If you wish to have a longer appointment on our first meeting this can be arranged but please note that this will be chargeable at standard session rate (see Guide to Fees).
If you don't quite feel ready to make an appointment yet, there are many helpful articles on this site that can help you with what's happening for you at the moment.
Previous clients feedback:
"Caroline helped me through a difficult, stressful few months after moving to Lincoln. She was very understanding and easy to talk to. I would highly recommend her to anyone who needs help with stress and depression or any other emotional problems." - Chris, Lincoln.
"Having counselling helped me understand my partner better and why we kept having the same kind of problems. I am much happier in my relationship and would recommend couple counselling to anyone." - Sue, Lincoln.

Other areas of counselling I deal with
People who have suffered abuse or neglect in childhood can often develop severe anxiety or anger issues in adult life. Symptoms of this can be difficult to live with for their family and close friends. I am happy to see you if you are struggling to live with someone in your family who lives in the aftermath of trauma.
