About me

Do you need to talk to somebody outside your family or friends who will listen without making a judgement, in a safe and confidential environment? Saying what’s on your mind isn’t always easy, talking about painful and difficult feelings can be hard. I provide a safe, non judgmental, confidential space where you will be listened to and truly heard.

I understand that asking for help can feel difficult. I am an experienced, qualified counsellor who can support you at a time when you feel overwhelmed, upset or anxious. If you are struggling to cope, feel low or depressed, or you simply need to talk to someone who can help you explore your thoughts and feelings, than why don't you contact me on 07894 275586 or to see if I could be the right therapist for you.

Initial Session
Taking the first step to contact me might seem scary and I recognise the importance of you finding a counsellor that you feel comfortable with. Therefore, I offer a no obligation initial session. This session is charged at the full fee rate.

About Me
My name is Caroline and I'm an experienced BACP Accredited counsellor.

I work with adults and young people in my private practice based in Bishops Stortford and Saffron Walden

I work as a school counsellor in an alternative education provision based in Harlow, supporting children and young people aged between 5-16 with emotional, social and behavioural difficulties.

I am also qualified in using the Rewind Technique for clients with PTSD, flashbacks, anxiety and unwanted involuntary thoughts.

The Rewind technique is a relatively recent breakthrough, the treatment is a fast, safe and painless method of helping people to overcome high anxiety conditions.  The incredible thing is that you don’t have to explain every detail of the trauma or phobia, which means you don’t have to re-experience the events that have led to the problem.

I have worked with a variety of ages, cultures, religions and recognise that every person is individual and unique.
