About me

Hello and welcome!
I’m Caroline Brown,  I'm an integrative therapist (psychodynamic and person-centred)  and the founder of the Emotional Essence programme and life coaching. 

I'm here to support you through your challenges, goals, emotional wellness and behaviours that are negatively impacting your wellbeing.

My approach embodies respect, compassion and sensitivity, generating an environment that supports you in creating and empowering a healthy alliance between your mind and body. My approach is integrative in that I combine humanistic and psychodynamic approaches. The advantage of integrative therapy is that the therapy can be tailored to meet your needs, so I can meet you where you are in your journey. 

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I’ve always had an interest in children’s and adults’ emotional and social well-being. 

Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling and I’m a certified clinical trauma professional, I have an MSC in Psychology/law and a BA in Social Work, allowing me to work and support people from a range of backgrounds, concerns and challenges. This benefits me by helping me understand the importance of you feeling safe to be who you truly are and not be judged, and for many, this may be the first time. 

I have experience working with neurodiversity ( ADHD, Aspergers and dyslexia), cultural identity, depression/mood disorders, anxiety, trauma/abuse, addiction and substance use, divorce, infidelity, family conflict, relationship issues, and grief. Additionally, I have done work with clients involving career paths, self-esteem/self-confidence, coping skills, life transitions, and everyday issues. 

My passion lies in assisting people to find their authentic selves and to improve, whether one’s unhappiness stems from mental health issues or life circumstances, it is my goal to support you.

Taking this step is courageous and I'm here to help and empower you, with a warm and supportive environment.

I look forward to working with you.

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

I was inspired by my journey to provide a space to coach others who were also going through a similar over-40s journey, this may be changing your career, returning to education, relationship matters, getting your groove back or turning your interests and hobbies into money-making adventures. I share emotional wellness and life coach strategies to celebrate your over-40s years.
