Caroline Kent - BA(Hons), PGCE, DIP C. (Biblical Counselling on request)

About me

My counselling approach is integrative and so I use elements of the following therapies when I counsel, tailoring my approach to the needs of individuals and couples:

  • Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT)
  • Cognitive Behaviour Therapy
  • Person Centred Counselling
  • Psychotherapeutic Counselling
  • Internet / Skype / Zoom / Phone Counselling

I also offer Biblical Christian Counselling on request - I do not impose my own values upon my clients but enable them to integrate their own faith into their counselling process as they wish.

I usually work face-to-face with individuals, couples and children from my home in Hadleigh, near Ipswich in Suffolk. Some clients also find the presence of our friendly dog to be helpful to their therapeutic process but this is entirely optional!

Increasingly, clients are opting for counselling via Internet Video link. This enables you to call in from anywhere in the UK (or beyond) for confidential counselling.

Training, qualifications & experience

Qualified Counsellor & member of the Association of Christian Counsellors, Caroline also has an honours degree in Theology & Religious Studies & is a qualified and experienced teacher and tutor. She has been counselling for over 10 years.

SPECIFIC COUNSELLING QUALIFICATIONS

  • 2010 Level 4 Diploma in Christian Counselling (Accredited by the Association of Christian Counsellors and the Open College Network)
  • 2008 Level 3 Christian Counselling (ACC & CPCAB)
  • 2007 Level 2 Christian Counselling (ACC & CPCAB)

EDUCATION

  • Post Graduate Certificate in Education (Bishop Grosseteste, Lincoln)
  • BA Hons Theology and Religious Studies, Inc. Medical & Behavioural Ethics (Bristol University)

Over the course of my life, I have attended many different churches. I grew up in an Anglican Church, was a lay reader, studied theology and religious studies at university and was head of the university ecumenical committee.

I was converted after leaving university and trained to become a teacher, attended a baptist church and married an actuary.  Since marrying in 1995, we have attended reformed baptist churches and my husband is now the Elder of the tiny church in Suffolk, of which we are members.

I believe the Bible contains the truth and wisdom of God which, applied to our everyday lives, can help us negotiate the trials and tribulations we face in the modern age.

I counsel Christians and non-Christians seeking to demonstrate  "love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness and temperance" for against such there is no law.

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.

Wheelchair user access

There is ramped access to the rear of the house. If you need this option, please let me know before-hand so I can make sure the driveway is clear for you to park and gain access.
