Caroline Hambleton FD(Open) MBACP (Accred)/ Treehousecounselling
Thinking about having counselling maybe for many different reasons, such as stress, panic, anxiety, depression, loss, loneliness, grief & bereavement, relationships, lack of confidence or illness.
Or you may be wishing to work on your personal development, such as improving your self-esteem, building confidence or overcoming your fears. Working together through exploration and awareness can lead to lasting changes that you may wish to see in yourself.
I offer a relaxed and non-judgmental space for you, which is confidential, safe and supportive. Here we can work together to build a therapeutic relationship, explore problems that can help bring clarity and awareness or move towards personal changes that you maybe looking for. I offer both short term and long term therapy incorporating CBT, where appropriate.
I am a qualified integrative counsellor & psychotherapist, which means that I combine approaches from different schools of counselling & psychotherapy to help build a therapeutic relationship which is individual to each client.

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.
