About me

I am an experienced and professionally qualified psychotherapist and counsellor working in the Hackney/Islington area.

I provide a safe, confidential, empathetic and non-judgemental space where you can explore and work through the things that are troubling you in your life.

I work from a psychodynamic perspective, which recognizes that current problems and difficulties can be linked to earlier experiences.

Whatever your emotional difficulties are, understanding their underlying nature can help to alleviate suffering and bring about the process of change.

This approach can be helpful for issues such as:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Stress
  • Low self-esteem
  • Bereavement
  • Relationship difficulties
  • Creative block

If you would like to find out more please contact me on 07770 917752 or at carolinechapman141@gmail.com and I will contact you to arrange an initial consultation. Ongoing sessions are weekly and are for 50 minutes.

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.
