About me

Do you recognise that you need help to work through difficult issues which are stopping you from living a happy fulfilled life? Perhaps you are just wondering how you will get through the day? My name is Caroline and I am a committed and experienced psychotherapist with over 20 years experience of working through a wide variety of issues and struggles. I offer Counselling and Psychotherapy in a quiet and supportive place. Issues I work with include relationship issues, work issues, self esteem difficulties, depression, anxiety and stress. Emotional sexual and physical abuse issues. Trauma and feelings of sadness, confusion fear and loss. Exploration of other life issues such as feelings of hopelessness and fear of life itself.

A little about myself
I began my working life as a Careers Advisor but realised that it was Counselling which really tugged at my heart and where my skill lay. I qualified as a Counsellor in 1992 and then invested 5 more years to qualify as a Gestalt Psychotheraist. I was naturally drawn to learning this therapy as I  experience it being the most effective for helping with distress and bringing clarity to difficulties and issues.

The therapy
Gestalt therapy is a compassionate method of helping to understand and come to terms with distressing thoughts and feelings which may feel complex or contradictory. It's giving the time and space to safely look together at what is causing distress, to bring clarity. With clarity, so much more is possible.  It may be that working through the difficult situation may bring peace and a sense of coming to terms. It may be that you decide to make a decision or a different choice in your life.

Please feel comfortable to contact me as I'm happy to answer any questions to help you decide if I am the right therapist for you.
