About me

I specialise in helping adults impacted by trauma recover from their adversity and live life again.  I will help you to live in the 'here and now' rather than being stuck in the 'there and then'.

Trauma comes in many guises.  Perhaps you have been affected by emotional abuse, domestic violence, childhood bullying, physical abuse, sexual abuse or maybe you have been traumatised by a single event such as an accident or a difficult ending of some kind.  You may have been traumatised vicariously by witnessing something distressing.  Whatever your experience and whether your trauma is recent, ongoing or historical - you've come to the right place.

Trauma often leads to anxiety and depression.  It brings with it feelings such as shame, embarrassment, confusion and powerlessness. Flashbacks, nightmares and fragmented memory recall are commonplace as is hyper vigilance (constantly looking over your shoulder) and panic attacks which can leave us feeling isolated, powerless and unable to cope with life – existing rather than living.

What would it feel like to sit in a room with someone who has experienced trauma first hand and understands it?  Who, in a calm, confidential space will help you to make sense of your turmoil and alleviate your symptoms. I am proud to say I have worked successfully with many clients, helping them through their trauma.  By educating, supporting and empowering them they have been unable to untangle what was happening and change what was holding them back.  My own experience of being helped by therapy inspired me to train as a counsellor.  Now let me help you.

Client feedback

"Carrie helped me through a very dark period of my life following a series of issues which all occurred in a short space of about six months. Her understanding of my issues and her calm reassuring nature gave me a great deal of confidence which was greatly needed at the time. Working with Carrie over the last six months has not only helped me get back to my old self but in a number of ways made me a much better person than I was before. Carrie is a very special and extremely skilled person who I cannot recommend highly enough. Always be indebted to you, thank you Carrie"

Qualifications and Training:

- Diploma in Online Counselling
- Diploma in Integrative Counselling
- Certificate in Counselling Skills
- Introduction to Counselling Skills

My training was within the Kent and Medway NHS Social Care Partnership Trust (www.inter-psyche.co.uk). The course is fully accredited by the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP), the largest professional organisation representing Counselling and Psychotherapy in the UK (www.bacp.co.uk).

My online counselling training was provided by an executive member of ACTO (Association for Counselling and Therapy Online). ACTO promotes, maintains, improves and advances online counselling and psychotherapy as a recognised method of therapeutic delivery within the mental health professions. (https://acto-org.uk/)

As a result of my personal experience I was drawn towards working with trauma and undertook further training with an organisation specialising in supporting victims of crime and this; has been my passion ever since.
