About me

Hi, my name is Caroline and I am a qualified counsellor, with a broad and varied professional background working with a range of clients.

My therapeutic approach is, perhaps, best explained as "down to earth". By this, I mean that I offer a confidential space, where you can explore your experiences and work through whatever may be troubling you whilst offering appropriate challenges. Counselling sessions will last for 50 minutes and this is a time for you to be heard outside your immediate circle of family and friend without judgement.

As a person-centred counsellor, I am committed to empowering others and supporting them to find their own way forward in life. In practice, this means that I adopt a variety of therapeutic interventions; yet, at the heart of my practice is the nurturing of an honest and caring relationship.

Therapy will not not provide instant solutions, but I do believe it provides a guided space and time to work towards a happier and more centred person.

I am also a registered member of the BACP and am fully insured.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a registered counsellor with the BACP, and have several years experience supporting a wide range of clients across the Public, Charitable and Voluntary Sectors. This includes extensive work with clients experiencing alcohol dependency and/ or other addictive patterns of behaviour. I also have vast experience of working with bereavement and grief, eating disorders, living with a terminal diagnosis, trauma and sexual identity.
