Hello and welcome, my name is Carolyn and I can offer short or long term counselling, at your own pace, in a peaceful, comfortable environment.
I aim to listen and support you while exploring your thoughts and feelings with you, in a warm, non judgemental way, providing a safe space for you to be who you really are.
I can offer one to one or couple counselling, as required. Issues covered include Abuse, Anger, Anxiety and Depression, Bereavement and Loss, Relationships and Self- Esteem I use an integrative approach, tailoring the therapy to your own unique needs.

I regularly attend workshops and training days as part of my continuous professional development.
I am a member of the BACP and work within their guidelines.
I have an enhanced CRB certificate.
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.

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
