I’m Caroline Weightman. As a qualified counsellor, understanding the benefits of the therapeutic relationship, I work collaboratively with my clients. Offering a safe, comfortable and confidential environment where your difficulties can be explored and your uniqueness is valued. I'm here to help and support you in understanding your troubles and to gain understanding of yourself.
No-one is immune to the difficulties and stresses of life and at times we can feel that these stresses or current/past difficulties are having an unhealthy impact on us and our relationships with others. We may have a sense of being stuck or feel that we are struggling on our own or without appropriate support. It is at times like these that speaking with a counsellor can help.
Drawing from my training in Humanistic and Integrative counselling and psychotherapy, and experience of both long and short term work, enables me to adapt my approach to your individual needs.
I offer 50 minute counselling sessions on a weekly basis to individual adults. The initial session is an opportunity for me to learn a little about your difficulties and expectations of counselling, for you to gain some understanding of what to expect, for us both to decide if we feel that we can work together and if indeed I am the right counsellor for you.
If you have any questions or wish to arrange an initial session, please e:mail me or contact me by phone. Should you leave a message for me to call you back, please leave your name and number specifying whether or not you wish me to leave a message should you be unavailable.

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.
