Caroline Taylor M.A. Relationship Therapy, MBACP, Counsellor/Psychotherapist
Welcome to this site - my name is Caroline Taylor and thank you for taking the time to look at my profile.
A bit about me
If you are struggling with life at the moment, talking things through with someone who is trained to listen and give support, can really help. Everyone has problems from time to time in their life, relationships, work or family. We all deserve support to work things through.
I have years of relationship therapy experience working with Relate - The Relationship People - all over Yorkshire. I have NHS training, worked as a nurse and currently counsel NHS clients, completed training with St Leonard's Hospice in York, as well as working with MIND and CAMHS. I also work with college/university and mature students.
- You might be struggling in a relationship / marriage with a spouse, or partner, but also with a parent, child, friend, work colleague or someone who has died.
- You can come as a couple, or alone.
- Couples sometimes come when they want to end the relationship, in the best way possible, and to talk about their children.
- Grief is about building a different relationship with the person who is no longer alive, but still a part of you and your life.
- This might be an issue in your life now, or in the past.
- You are always welcome to bring a friend or family member if that feels like it would be of help.
Things between people can get overwhelming: your communication, anger, misunderstandings, arguments, loneliness, sex, affairs and betrayal, separation and divorce. These are just a few things that clients regularly need support with.
Lots of us don't have a network of people around to turn to. We might want to keep our issue private from others. That can feel very lonely. Being in a relationship where you aren't able to communicate what you need and feel can be the loneliest place.
Different techniques in counselling (and Mindfulness) can help you understand, cope with and change things such as rage, anxiety, depression, bereavement and grief, self-esteem problems and panic attacks. Generalised anxiety disorder. and depressions are becoming more and more common. Clients also often talk about self harm and suicidal thoughts.
Men are coming to counselling more and more. If you are a man thinking about this - you are not alone. Often they have struggled to understand their thoughts and feelings, or to communicate them in a relationship, or to a manager or colleagues at work. Counselling can really help with this, and most see a great improvement in the relationships around them.
You might be nervous about coming to see a counsellor, or a partner or family member might be asking you to come and you are not sure that you want to. Lots of people feel like that. I would always say, it is worth giving it a go. We use the first session to help you decide if it feels right for you.
