About me

My name is Caroline and I am a cognitive behaviour therapist working both from my home in Cumbernauld and my private practice in Alloa. I have a background in social care and have worked in a variety of settings with a range of people of all ages throughout my working life.

At times our lives present us with challenges that can seem overwhelming. Cognitive behavioural therapy, or CBT, is a talking therapy which involves understanding how our thoughts and feelings can often keep us stuck in patterns of negative behaviour. Working together, we will find ways to help you become "unstuck", allowing you to move forward and make real and effective change. I offer a safe space in which you can explore issues of concern in an empathetic, non-judgemental and confidential environment.

CBT can help with physical concerns as well as emotional issues such as low self-esteem, anxiety, depression and phobias.

I work within the ethical framework for good practice in counselling as outlined by COSCA and BABCP.

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.
