Caroline Stacey MBACP (Accred)
As an accredited counsellor and EMDR practitioner, I am passionate about empowering my clients to transform patterns of thoughts, feelings and behaviours, which are detrimental to their own well-being and relationships with others. I am experienced in working with stress, anger, anxiety and depression, which can affect both work and home life. My approach may vary depending on what I feel will be most beneficial for you and what you are looking to get out of our sessions at the time.
I will work with you by exploring your unconscious beliefs, values and emotional needs, to help discover the root cause of the issues you have been experiencing. Needs and values may include emotional stability, to build a strong connection with those you love, to feel like you have a purpose and are growing or it may be the need to discover your own sense of identity and feel more comfortable with being you.
My aim is to create a safe space for you to unpack all of the issues and emotions spinning round the mind and body and to work through areas of pain and hurt so that they can be confronted, understood and so the residual suffering can be greatly reduced. We can then build on that learning to identify other options for you and allow you to make more beneficial choices in future. By working through areas that can drain you both physically and mentally this creates more energy that can be filtered into experiencing greater comfort, balance and well-being.
As part of the therapeutic process I may recommend EMDR therapy. This has been proven to be very helpful in addressing a range of conditions where you can feel stuck. These include disturbing memories, flashbacks and phobias as well as recent or historic trauma, abuse or complicated grief.
It is important to have a counselling relationship where you feel at ease, in a safe environment where you feel able to be honest and open. If you are not sure whether I may be the counsellor for you or you would like to ask any questions please do contact me by either telephone or email.
