Hi, I am Caroline and I have chosen to specialise in working with bereavement because it brings unique, unanticipated challenges and losses that are often misunderstood. There are many incorrect and unhelpful assumptions about what grief should look or feel like and how long it should last. These ideas, alongside the impact of grief on every corner of life and identity, and experiencing confusing and intense emotions, can cause people to feel worried, alone and overwhelmed. My aim is to share my experience, knowledge and understanding of the bereavement process, and what has been of help to others, to support and reassure you.

Hello, my name is Jacqueline and I am a psychotherapist and counsellor working online and in Lewes to help adults and young people to create positive changes. At the moment, you may be feeling overwhelmed by your emotions. Trauma, abuse, or neglect from the past may be haunting you. You may be approaching a life transition with anxiety and fear. You may feel too detached or numb to connect with the good things in your life.

There are many reasons you may be seeking counselling but I imagine you are wanting something to change. My aim is to facilitate a relationship that is tailored to you and created with you. This provides the conditions for you to freely and safely explore the challenges you may face as well as the trauma or difficulties you have experienced. Counselling is not only about what we think of ourselves and our life but more importantly, our felt sense of ourselves and our visceral experience of life. Giving space and awareness to our experience is what informs us of what is needed for healing, growth and change.

To begin counselling can be a life-changing decision. You may want to address thoughts and feelings or specific challenges that can be hard to speak to others about, or perhaps made a decision to address the impact of past trauma, loss or shame. By sharing your story and emotional journey within the therapeutic space, it can be heard in a new way, as though for the first time. In this way, different narratives can be explored, allowing you to take greater ownership of your life and your future.

I am a psychodynamic psychotherapist with over 10 years experience. I work full-time seeing individual adult clients (only) and I hope that my approach is experienced as warm, non-judgmental and relational. Whatever has led you to look for a therapist today, my own view is that current persistent difficulties in life have their roots in the past. And I believe that it is only by getting underneath these symptoms and trying to understand where they come from that real and lasting change can take place. But just to sit with someone who will listen attentively and without judgement can be a completely new experience for many people.

Having experienced at first hand the hugely positive impact counselling has had on my own life, I chose to train as a psychodynamic therapist to help others experience the same profound benefits. I now use an integrative approach, which has enriched my work with clients. Working with you, we will together examine and uncover often unconscious or repressed memories which in turn can drive unhelpful patterns of behaviour. We will explore the sources of your problems and aim to deal with the underlying issues, not just try to find a way to cope with them. Only by making peace with the past can you look forward to a happy future.

I realise that seeking therapy may feel daunting and I know how important it is that you find a therapist you can trust with your innermost thoughts and feelings. Perhaps you have come to a time in your life when you feel you need some extra support for whatever challenges and difficulties you are facing. It may be that you have suffered a loss, a relationship issue or experienced a significant life event or that you feel the weight of depression or anxiety. Perhaps you have decided the time is right to try to make some changes in your life.

Are you are anxious, depressed, stressed and struggling to cope? Are you feeling that old issues and feelings are overwhelming you? As an EMDR Practitioner, I can help with these unmanageable feelings. In an initial session we can discuss your problems, your goals and work out a treatment plan. I offer EMDR and we target specific traumatic experiences and symptoms. A large body of neuroscience research has found that working at a subcortical level, using EMDR, effectively reprocesses experiences that are stuck in your body and your nervous system. After EMDR you are likely to feel much less dys-regulated.

I’m an experienced integrative therapist working with individuals struggling with anxiety, low self-esteem, depression and relationship issues. You may feel that you are struggling with these issues alone and that you can’t talk to your partner, friends or family. You might worry that these issues keep repeating themselves and that you will always feel stuck. I work with clients to explore their current emotional concerns to understand underlying and often unseen issues. It is this process that opens up positive change.

Life can be really hard sometimes, difficult things happen or people struggle emotionally for a variety of reasons. Lots of people need support at some time in their lives for themselves or people they care for. I genuinely believe that most people who are struggling want to improve their situation and need support to enable them to be and feel the best they can. However, just because you did not cause all your problems does not mean you do not have to work to try to make things better. That is where I can help, providing support, therapy and specialist assessment for young people and adults.

We will all encounter challenges during our lives. It can be difficult to ask for help but in reaching out we show strength - it takes courage to be vulnerable, open up and acknowledge we need support. I specialise in working with low self esteem, transforming deep-rooted issues, anxiety, depression and feelings of being stuck - whether it be in your relationship, in your job, or life in general. I have been working on an individual basis with clients both short and long term since 2015. Counselling can allow you to gain inner clarity and strength, as well as help you to live a more meaningful life.

Specialist counselling service for women. Maybe you’ve been through a difficult patch recently, and you’re feeling low or anxious. Maybe you don’t really have anything specific to talk about, just a general feeling of not-quite-rightness. Or maybe you’ve been through something traumatic in your past that seems to affect you in your life today. I want to support my clients to find a way to live more deeply, with meaning and purpose and clarity, alongside the many and varied losses in every life. When we are able to be as we are and feel as we feel, then I believe we all are the stronger for it.

As I work relationally and with unconscious processes I work well with any presenting issues that are related to attachment. These may be experienced as anxiety, depression, OCD, bereavement issues, substance use etc. You may have difficulties forming meaningful lasting relationships or have recognised a pattern in things going wrong in your life which make you unhappy. You may have current issues with your children that are echoing past hurts of your own that need attending to. I can help you to explore these issues within the safe and holding relationship that we can create together.

At times life is tough and this can challenge our emotional health and well being, making us feel overwhelmed, stuck, anxious, depressed, angry or lacking in self esteem. You may be finding it difficult to put words to your current feelings or make any sense of what you are experiencing and this can be both frightening and isolating. I believe counselling can be a transformative and meaningful experience, with change made possible through a supportive therapeutic relationship, which helps us to move towards acceptance of self or empowerment to positive change. As such, I am dedicated to bringing about healing and growth in others.
