Hi, I'm Carol
and I am a Person-Centred Counsellor.
Perhaps counselling appears to be a daunting prospect for you. You may think you have to commit to weeks, months or years of costly sessions. However, I would encourage you to give at least one session a try because it could be all you require, or you may consider you need to explore things more deeply. There are no set rules to an individual's therapy requirements. That is for you to determine with my help and support. 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.
A safe and comfortable space awaits
to explore what troubles you
"Of all the counsellors I've seen (and there are a few) you have been the one who has helped and encouraged me to click my thoughts, feelings and actions into place."
"At 65 I finally faced up to the child-hood sexual abuse I had suffered. I have worked with Carol as my counsellor for over a year and the difference in how I feel about myself is enormous."
"Losing my husband was the hardest thing I have ever had to deal with. Being able to talk to someone like Carol was a real help."
“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.
