About me and my therapy practice
Hi, my name is Caroline, and as a qualified Integrative Psychotherapist, I know and understand entirely that finding a therapist that you would like to feel comfortable and safe with, so you can explore and make sense of all you want and need to, can seem like an incredibly daunting prospect. Choosing a therapist is a very personal and subjective experience. So with this in mind we can discuss your requirements initially and then decide if we want to work together, there’s no obligation to commit to sessions after our initial discussions, or a minimum contract in terms of number of sessions. Our work together is guided completely by you and open ended, you can cease sessions whenever you wish. Our time together can be short or long-term.
Being an integrative psychotherapist means that I am able to draw upon a range of therapeutic approaches in order to best support my clients. My approach is 'relational', and I’ve been told on many occasions that I have a very calming, supportive, empathetic, and non-judgemental presence, and I strive to be open, genuine, and empathic towards my clients. I feel passionately about supporting clients to seek empowerment from within, on a journey to becoming more personally aware, authentic and self-valuing, aiming to build or enhance my client’s own resources, hopefully enabling them to be better equipped when dealing with everyday life, as well as life’s more challenging moments. If desired, I will support clients to seek new perspectives, or reframe existing ones, and identify possible choices or changes within their lives, which they would potentially like to make, however big or small.
As a qualified Integrative counsellor registered with the BACP, it means I endorse and adhere to their high standards of practice, and ethical framework for 'Good Practice' for counselling and psychotherapy. I also undertake CPD and have regular supervision (both BACP membership requirements), to ensure I am practising in the best possible, most informed way, for my clients.
I became a psychotherapist because I truly believe in the benefits and power of counselling, and I feel very honoured to be trusted and support clients on their very personal, individual, journeys.
I have experience of dealing with a whole range of different issues from my time in third sector and local authority settings, and worked with many different people, who have sought counselling for many different reasons. I approach each new client acknowledging and respecting their uniqueness, and endeavour to ‘meet’ the person as a whole.
I currently only see individual adults, and have experience of working with depression, anxiety, eating disorders/food issues, suicide, adult or childhood trauma, loss, grief, bereavement, relationship issues, stress (work related or other), illness, other struggles, confidence/self-esteem, addiction, to name but a few. My areas of interest include: anxiety, eating disorders, pre/post-natal depression, equine facilitated psychotherapy, and eco-therapy.
