Counselling

People from various walks of life have counselling and as a result feel happier, healthier and are more effective in their lives.

The confidential and supportive environment of a counselling session offers you time to explore and heal past and present difficulties, dealing with issues such as:

  • Low self esteem
  • Depression
  • Bereavement
  • Loneliness
  • Relationship difficulties
  • Workplace bullying
  • Addictions
  • Panic attacks and anxiety

The Counselling Session

I see counselling as an education in the art of living well. Rather than giving you advice I will guide you in discovering techniques for self-empowerment and decision making, finding your own solutions, and exploring how changing your thinking can positively change your life.

Sessions last an hour and are usually attended on a weekly basis. The number of sessions varies from as few as 6 sessions to several months depending on your presenting issue.

I attended a 4 year psychotherapy & counselling training at the Psychosynthesis & Education Trust, London, qualifying in 1990.

I am a member of the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP). I abide by the professional Code of Ethics for the UKCP and hold professional indemnity insurance. I am in regular supervision with a registered supervisor who oversees all of my work.

“It is a rare treat to be listened to so attentively – something that doesn’t often happen in normal life. It was immensely beneficial to have some completely independent, neutral feedback from someone with so much experience as Caroline.

“Middle age can be a difficult time for women, especially those who have spent many years caring for a family, and in my mid-fifties the empty nest left me with no escape from myself, my fears and anxieties. I needed help to relax and to get my worries into perspective, and to revisit some issues from the past and finally put them to rest.”

“Caroline has a great deal of experience and very quickly tuned into the issues I needed to talk about, asking me just the right questions to get me to think things through. She is very perceptive, and has an uncanny ability to remember everything you’ve said from one session to the next, without ever appearing to write anything down.”

Kirsty L.

“Going to a counsellor is not an admission of weakness or failure – on the contrary, I see it as a healthy investment in one’s own life and future happiness – a gift to oneself. I would wholeheartedly recommend Caroline, and intend to return to her peaceful counselling room perhaps in two or three years, just to ‘touch base’.”
