About me

Hello, my name is Caroline. I am a qualified Integrative Counsellor and a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).

I will work with you in an integrative way to provide you with the therapy that will meet your individual need in a safe, accepting, and non-judgemental environment. Integrative counselling means I studied different theoretical approaches which covered various counselling approaches like Psychodynamic, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Humanistic approaches and theories. My study of these theories has led me to understand more about human suffering and how to help.

My own difficult experiences in life helps me to understand your life’s difficult experiences and challenges you have been through or may be going through now. I value and accept you as a person without judgement and will create a nurturing space for you to explore the difficult and stressful issues in your life.

Psychiatric prescribed drugs and antidepressants withdrawal effects

I understand the concern and worry when deciding to go on an antidepressant and the worrying symptoms and side effects when you start them and when coming off them. If you are considering going on antidepressants, or considering coming off psychiatric prescribed drugs and antidepressants, or suffering withdrawal effects of psychiatric drugs and antidepressant. I can support you to explore and decide what is appropriate for you with the help of your GP and understand the withdrawal symptoms you may or are going through.

Whatever you are going through, we can work it out together for you to find a resolution.
