Carolyne Croker (MBACP)
I am offering online and telephone counselling during the COVID situation.
My name is Carolyne and I am a qualified integrative counsellor and a member of the BACP
I believe everyone is unique and our experiences are all unique too. Something that is overwhelming or difficult to process for you may not be the same for those around you. This is when it is helpful to get support from someone like me.
I work with you as your sounding board; I’m someone who can help you unpick what is going on for you in a safe and confidential environment. I’m not here to judge you or provide you with my answers. I am here to support you in finding your own solutions and help you understand what is going on in your world and recognise why you feel the way you do. We work together to explore your emotions and address your feelings. Our work may take us to your past or be focused in the here and now.
I work in an integrative way which means I use a variety of different therapeutic approaches depending on you.
Approaching someone for counselling can be really hard for some people, so if you have any questions please do get in touch for more information.

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).
