Hi, I'm Carol
and I am a Person-Centred Counsellor.
Counselling may be a daunting and often mysterious prospect for a lot of people therefore I offer a free half hour session (no obligation to continue) for new clients to briefly explore how counselling may be of benefit. Fundamentally, person-centred counselling respects you and your experiences as unique. The philosophy, simply put, is that the route to well-being is aided by insight and awareness gained through a therapeutic relationship based on trust, honesty, non-judgement and acceptance.
Whatever troubles you.........
Abuse, anxiety, bereavement, confidence issues, depression, loss, low self esteem, relationship issues, sexuality, sexual problems, stress, trauma or any other issue.
The first step back to wellbeing is reaching out for support, maybe a counselling relationship is what you need to help you through.
“Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment”
More About Me
I am fundamentally a 'people' person and followed a career in public service. Through various roles I have acted as: support, advocate and campaigner for individuals and special interest groups at Government policy level (spanning some 30 years). This path led me to the training in Humanistic Counselling where I learned much about myself in the process.
Life has thrown me many challenges, some I have coped with well and some not so well! It has been through the tough times that the support of trusted relationships has been the key to helping me through.
Although family, close friends and colleagues can offer valuable support sometimes these very relationships can be the barriers to exploring honestly and openly just what we may be thinking or experiencing. This is where the therapeutic Counsellling relationship can help.
I work from a dedicated, stand alone, space in Tangmere, West Sussex specially created to provide privacy and comfort.
Access is easy from the A27.
I am professionally registered with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy.
