I'm Caroline Simm, I trained as a counsellor after I experienced counselling support myself. I am aware first hand of the benefits of this therapeutic relationship.
As a professionally qualified and experienced counsellor, I have worked in a variety of settings with clients exploring many different issues.
Difficulties like; depression, relationship problems, divorce, bereavement, anger, work related issues, surviving abuse, family issues, stress, anxiety, eating disorders and panic disorders.
Life can be challenging, balancing work and family and then coping with problems that make us unhappy can sometimes be too much to deal with on our own.
Working from home I offer a safe, confidential space where you are able to talk over your difficulties.
During this process I can support you in gaining a better understanding of what is troubling you. I can also help you gain a better understanding of yourself.
I can offer competitive rates and do not charge for our initial session.

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.
