About me and my therapy practice

Establishing trust is at the heart of good therapy . I aim to do this in a non judgmental and confidential space to bring about a deeper understanding of yourself and to improve your mental health and wellbeing.

Perhaps troubling thoughts and anxiety have been overwhelming lately; maybe triggered by relationship issues, bereavement, anxiety, illness, or a whole host of other concerning issues.  It may be that these feelings are difficult to express; they may be deeply private or cause distress to others. You may feel embarrassed to even voice them to your family, friends and work colleagues. If this is so, then it is time for you to unburden yourself, to speak candidly about what these issues are, and to be supported by an experienced professional.


“After suffering on and off for years with depression and anxiety I was put in touch with Carol by a therapist friend of mine. I have had many short sessions of therapy over the years and been on and off anti depressants but still kept finding myself feeling the same. I have been seeing Carol now for over 2 years for long term counselling. 

I cannot recommend this type of counselling enough. After 2 years of weekly visits talking about anything and everything I finally feel like a different person. I have learned such a lot about myself, my behaviour and how to "feel" differently about life. I did this without the use of medication this time although I understand this approach is not for everyone. Carol is a lovely lady, very easy to talk to and her style of therapy has worked wonders for me. I would recommend her without hesitation having already suggested her to others experiencing life's difficulties.”

Practice description

Initially we meet for a 60 minutes assessment session where we explore what you would like from therapy. It can be long term therapy or, if you prefer short term work. My approach is integrative, therefore drawing from many perspectives including psychoanalytic, existential and person-centred approaches. Together we will look at the issues concerning you and the impact on your life. We will look at coping strategies and how to resolve present day difficulties. To do this we will look at childhood experiences through to today and get a sense of why these experiences bear heavily down on you today. Our shared goal is to help you feel better about your life.

My first session

Initially I offer a free telephone consultation. If you then decide to take things forward, we can to arrange to meet for a 1 hour assessment. We will explore; what brings you to therapy, what you aim to achieve, and what outcomes you would like.
