Caroline K.T. Parker MSc (UKCP Registered)
I am a qualified and accredited Systemic Psychotherapist (Family Therapist) with over twenty years experience of working with young people and their families. I have worked in a variety of settings including Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS) within the NHS, Social Care and within private practice.
Children, young people and their families can benefit from Family Therapy when they are faced with stressful circumstances and relationship difficulties. In a non-blaming environment, my practice endeavours to facilitate a space whereby each family members' view and understanding of a particular problem can be heard. This enables families to express and explore difficult thoughts and emotions safely, to understand the different views within the family and for families to unlock their strengths and full potential.
Depending on the circumstances, I am able to work with all members of the family including sibling groups, parents and individuals.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a qualified Systemic Psychotherapist (Family Therapist) and hold an MSc in Systemic Psychotherapy from London University and the Institute of Family Therapy. I have worked within a Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service since 1996 and like to work with families who are challenged by divorce and separation, adolescent and behavioural issues, low mood and anxiety.
Initially, I undertook a History degree at Cardiff University and then went on to train as a Child and Family Social Worker. I have worked within a number of Social Care settings and predominantly within child protection.
In keeping with her passion for creativity, Caroline also trained as a Dance/Movement Psychotherapist and has worked privately as a therapist within an acute Adult Psychiatric setting whereby she facilitated Dance and Movement groups for over a decade.
