Caroline Schofield MBACP Snr Accred
There can be times in life where we feel stuck or unhappy with ourselves, repeating negative patterns of behavior or relating without understanding what is happening. At these times it may help to talk to someone independent and outside of the situation.
Psychotherapy or counselling can help individuals to understand less familiar aspects of themselves by talking over a period of time in a reliable setting with a trained and experienced therapist.
I have been practicing as a therapist for over 25 years and presently have consulting rooms at Phoenix Therapy Practice which at Seven Dials in Hove. I mainly work with individuals over both the short term and the longer term.
I have a particular interest in Counselling Supervision and in this capacity have supervised counsellors in training as well as counsellors holding their own practices.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have trained in both Humanistic Psychotherapy and Analytical Psychotherapy and am a Senior Accredited Practitioner with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP)
I have worked in the mental health field for all of my career, balancing a private practice with work in the psychiatric, social services and voluntary sectors.
I have regular supervision of my caseload and work to the BACP Code of Ethics.
My approach is psychodynamic and my orientation is Jungian, which means that I am interested in the relationships between people and their worlds, both inner and outer. I am also interested in how we find meaning in our lives in both a small and a larger sense.

If you think you would like to explore the possibility of working with me in therapy, the first step would be to make an initial appointment so that we could meet and explore the issues which are pressing for you. I do not charge for this initial appointment.
If we decide that we would like to work together I charge £50 per session, billing monthly. I am open to negotiating a lower fee in certain circumstances.
My practice is at Phoenix Therapy Practice https://phoenixtherapypractice.co.uk which is at Seven Dials in Hove where I am a Senior Practitioner (BACP).
