I am a fully qualified integrative counsellor offering short and long term individual counselling in a safe, supportive and confidential environment. I work in South East London, Abbey Wood SE2.
I am a full member of BACP and work within their guidelines and ethical standards. My experience covers a wide range of issues and no problem is ever regarded as insignificant. I never underestimate the courage it takes for clients to pick up the phone or send that first e.mail and seek help.
I work together with clients and always agree a therapy programme that they are comfortable with. Through analytical or cognitive therapy, the aim would be to increase your awareness and personal understanding of whatever it is that you are finding hard to cope with. A process of re-evaluation regarding your behaviour and/or thought processes can then take place. I work with adults and young people (over 11 yrs) and couples.
It is now regarded by many health professionals and society generally, that counselling can change lives for the better and relieve stress and anxiety caused by many different problems which in some instances, have been present since childhood.
If you have been thinking about counselling for a while, or just need someone to talk to, perhaps now is the time to so something about it? Call me or visit my web site www.carolinewhite.org and use the contact link to send an e-mail. You can do something to change your life and remember - its always good to talk.
