Caroline Mendis BSc Hons MBACP PG Dip Counselling
Hello and welcome to my page. I am a professionally qualified therapist, clinical supervisor and mindfulness practitioner, and have over 20 years’ experience. I am a warm, compassionate and experienced counsellor and therapist, who can create a safe and trusting space for you to talk in confidence about issues or problems that might be affecting you. Counselling can help with many difficult life problems - from coping with relationship issues or bereavement to dealing with depression and/or anxiety. You may be trying to manage harmful emotional behaviours, struggling with a lack of confidence, or maybe just feeling stuck.
As I am trained and experienced in a variety of approaches I am able to tailor my approach to your individual needs. I have experience of working with a wide range of difficulties with both adults and children and young people. As a registered member of the BACP I am committed to work within their ethical guidelines. I also offer Clinical Supervision.
I appreciate that starting counselling and finding the right person that you feel comfortable to work with can seem quite daunting. Therefore please feel free to contact me for more information and to see if I am the right person for you to work with. Whatever may bring you to counselling I am passionate about helping you work through difficulties.

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.
