Caroline Elliott BA (Hons), Adv Dip, MBACP
Hello, I am Caroline. I am a qualified counsellor working in central Bath, who uses psychotherapeutic approaches in my work. My specialisms are carer support, anxiety, depression/low mood, grief and loss.
My work is integrative and humanistic, so I approach each client with respect and compassion, and draw upon various modalities in our work together. I offer a confidential, warm, safe space so that you can feel secure enough to bring whatever is concerning you.
My practice is to be gentle, to be firm, to be quiet, to question, to do whatever feels right for each individual client. The work between us is a joint undertaking, to enable you to make discoveries about yourself which can give you the ability to make changes to your thoughts, feelings and actions.
Life throws us hardballs from time to time, but it is how we deal with these which can make all the difference. So, whilst I have specialisms, my approach is to concentrate on you, whilst respecting what it is that has brought you to therapy.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
