Caroline Hammond : MBACP (Registered) (Ad.Prof.Dip.PC); MNCS(Acc); MCMI
I am a BACP qualified Counsellor/Psychotherapist and I have my own private practice near Downham Market, where I have a comfortable, private consultation room with easy parking.
I am a member of the Kings Lynn and West Norfolk Professional Counselling Partnership, who all provide a high level of counselling support to clients, meeting on a regular basis.
My previous employment was for the Charity Mind as a High Intensity Counsellor, who then formed a partnership with the Wellbeing Service, who are part of the NHS.
I have experience of working with depression, stress related issues, (particularly in the work place), physical /psychological/sexual abuse, bereavement, couple counselling and many other areas, a full list of which is outlined below.
Life is not easy and I know how distressing it can be when things become difficult, and how daunting it might feel when having to take that first step in seeking help from a professional. I therefore work in a friendly, relaxed and approachable manner, with the importance being on my client's feeling safe and comfortable.
The process of counselling is to enable clients to explore issues in a confidential, non-judgemental and supporting environment. To help come to an understanding and an acceptance as to what has or is happening in their lives, either present or historically, which may be painful and confusing, to look at making any changes clients may want to happen. Working together with my client, towards improving their well-being and thereby enhancing the quality of their life.
I offer an integrative approach to counselling, which is predominantly person-centred however, I am also trained in a psychodynamic and a CBT approach.
So please call for an initial chat, (and feel free to ask any queries you may have), and following that an appointment can then be made to see if Counselling will suit your needs.
