Hi. My name is Carol. I am a accredited counsellor and member of the NCS. The qualification I have is person centred focused but as it was a integrative course I am able to work with other modalities if they are required during our sessions. As counselling is a personal journey for yourself and the goals you have for therapy are yours, I will be guided by yourself in the direction you want to head towards. Along this journey times may require more direction which is when other ways of working together can be discussed and integrated if need be.

As YODA said, “In a dark place we find ourselves, and a little more knowledge lights our way.” Counselling can help you work through your problems and gain understanding into why you think, feel and behave the way that you do. We can then work together on change. I offer a warm, supportive, confidential and non-judgmental space to help if you are struggling with the demands of daily life. I help people to not only survive but thrive. I also like to balance the sometimes hard work of sessions with humour.

If you are reading this, I am here to remind you that there is always an opportunity for change and healing. It's astonishing how much being listened to helps. Sometimes just letting go of the words that have accumulated inside you over time is enough. What difficulties do you face? What do you fear about the future? How do your emotions assist or hinder your ability to cope with life? Are you living the life you desire? If not, how will you get back on track? These are some of the questions that an experienced, qualified therapist like myself can help you address.

We humans are influenced by our life events, and they drive our emotional reactions. These events often render us helpless, lonely, and terrified. Sometimes it becomes difficult to express our true feelings and/or needs. Life turns out to be persistently sad, complicated, and filled with negative thoughts. It can happen to anyone, and it is an illness that can be treated. All we need is professional compassionate help to start living again.

If you’re at a point in your life where you’re struggling, feeling low, anxious, or alone with your problems, I would genuinely like to listen, understand and help you find a way forward. It is not always easy to speak to those closest to us, especially if worried about how they might respond. You don’t need to be alone with your thoughts, feelings, or issues anymore. I will listen with compassion and really hear what it is like for you and work with you to help you see a way forward.

Do you feel Anxious or Depressed? Are you Angry, Exhausted, Stuck or Overwhelmed? Seeking counselling is a big step, and finding the right counsellor for you is the key to success. I offer a FREE 30min consultation call, so you can see if my style will work for you, or visit my website to see if you feel my approach will work for you. Life is so busy with many competing pressures. We face seemingly impossible situations through loss or trauma. It's easy to become lost or overwhelmed and start to struggle. Often we cant talk to friends and family, and we can start to feel alone, anxious or stuck.

I am a calm, compassionate therapist and provide a therapy space where you can be heard and supported to make the changes that are right for you. For many clients having a space that is just for you gives time away from a busy life and maybe for the first time a chance to think about yourself. Some people come to therapy with a clear understanding of what they want support with whereas others may feel stuck or overwhelmed by lots of things.
