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 had a long NHS career, originally from a nursing background I trained in counselling and psychotherapy because I saw how much it could make people's lives better.
I am an experienced counsellor and a specialist in working with relationship issues, and have lots of knowledge about areas of life that can feel overwhelming, like affairs, separation and divorce, or poor communication. I have years of couple therapy experience and have worked with couples at Relate all over Yorkshire. If you are looking for counselling about your relationship I would really like to meet with you as I believe that this sort of help can make a huge difference. I have personally worked on my own relationship issues over the years, and know a bit about how it feels, both to struggle but also to make things feel better.
I am also very experienced in working with people coming on their own to work things out. I can help if you need confidential time and support to talk to someone who is not family or a friend (those people can be too closely involved). Also lots of people don't have a network of people around them to turn to. That can feel very lonely. Talking things through really does help. Anxiety, depression, bereavement and grief, self esteem problems and panic attacks are common and I work with these issues, as well as many others.
I work with family groups and also with young people (I am a counsellor in a local college working with young people, often experiencing anxiety and/or depression).
You might be nervous about coming to see a counsellor, or a partner 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 - so many clients over the years say they wish they had come to talk much earlier than they did. Lots of couples have told me they were so pleased about the affects counselling had on their relationship. And coming to counselling as an individual can be really special time just for you, that we rarely have in our busy lives today.
Where am I?
I am able to offer appointments from a professional clinic at Action First, Snaith, easily accessible from lots of towns in Yorkshire, including, Selby, Goole, Howden, Eggborough, Rawcliffe, Drax, Pontefract, York, Doncaster, Thorne, Wakefield, Thorne, Castleford and surrounding areas. Access from the M62, A19, M18 and A63 is easy. My room is a comfortable and relaxing place for you to spend time in. Parking is available on the nearby high street and car park.
I haven’t done this before so how do I know if counselling is right for me?
I realise that making contact with a counsellor for the first time can feel difficult. Please choose to text or email me if you prefer, or ring if that feels ok. Once you have made contact we can arrange our first session.
How can counselling help?
Some things in life happen that are difficult to discuss with family or friends, yet coping with our thoughts and feelings alone can be really hard. Meeting with a counsellor gives you confidential time to work through things at your own pace, with guidance from someone experienced in why you might feel stuck or struggling. Counselling can look back to your past, help you today, or give you a chance to think about what you want for your future.
