About me and my therapy practice

Hello and welcome to my page.

My name is Caroline and I am an integrative counsellor and psychological therapist working from a psychological informed approach. I am a registered member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP) and have GMBPsS status with the British Psychological Society (BPS).

You have now taken the first step to living a ‘Whole’ life, whatever your reasons for seeking support, nothing is too big or too small to explore. I believe therapy is for ‘everyone’ and not just for when we reach a crisis point in our lives. Our sessions may be about a specific issue or transition you may be going through such as a relationship or work challenges, bereavement and loss etc or about exploring feeling 'stuck' and a lack of motivation, energy or strength to move forward. Alternatively you may want to take the time to explore a little deeper, particularly around initial attachments and past experiences and events  and how these may be impacting you in the HERE and NOW.

Why seek Therapy?

Therapy can help us in bringing about more awareness and insight into our behavioural and thinking patterns and any areas that might be holding us back from living a full and fulfilled life.  I provide a safe, empathic and non-judgmental space for us to explore together why you may be feeling this way and what may be holding you back. It is my belief that psychological therapy can help you to accept the past, embrace the present and rewrite the future.



Practice description

I integrate holistic therapeutic approaches and practice. As an integrative counsellor and psychological therapist sessions are tailored to each unique persons needs by providing a relational, empathic and non-judgmental safe space for us to explore and process in a collaborative way. I work with Humanistic, Psychodynamic and Behavioural approaches with a solutions focused perspective across cultures and difference. 

I am trauma and attachment informed and provide a safe space to explore the impact of past experiences, maladaptive habits and adaptations and other coping mechanisms which may no longer be serving you at this time. Working from a holistic approach in our sessions, we can review your lifestyle patterns and collaborate on making any necessary adjustments which can help to alleviate your symptoms and reenergise you to live a whole life. I will also support you to tap into and manifest your hidden strengths and resilience, working together to bring about positive change.

I currently work online to ensure location is not an issue. I am open to different ways of working, whether it be short term counselling where we can focus on a particular issue, a transition, a relationship, or longer-term psychological therapy where we can take the time to explore a little deeper, around past experiences and how these may be impacting you in the present. How we collaborate to meet your needs can be discussed more during our initial session. 

I also work from a complementary medicine approach and can offer clinical aromatherapy consultations to determine how the therapeutic benefits of essential oils may support your healing journey. This can be incorporated in the sessions or arranged as a separate session.

My first session

I understand that finding a therapist can be challenging, with questions coming to mind such as; will I find the right fit for me, someone I can relate to, someone who will understand me, and or someone who I can build a relationship of trust to be fully open about my challenges? These are important questions as a therapeutic relationship which is built on trust and openness between the client and therapist is the most essential part of the healing process.  On this basis, I do offer a free 15-minute introductory chat (if required) to see if we are a good fit for each other.  You can contact me via email to arrange a first free of charge 15 minute session via telephone or on zoom.


Further sessions

Once we agree to work together, I will send out a contract which will outline our working agreement. In our first session, we will start by exploring more around what brings you to therapy and how we can work together to achieve your therapeutic goals. 

I offer 50 minutes slots via Zoom and currently charge £60 per hour, and I do have some concessionary rates of £40-£50 per hour available to students, trainee counsellors and low-income earners. I do recommend weekly sessions to begin with however this can be reduced to bimonthly if appropriate.

If you prefer to work Face to Face on a longer term basis, this can be arranged on a case by case basis, locally in Clapham SW11 and Kensington SW5. I charge £90 per hour for Face to Face.
