About me and my therapy practice
I believe a welcoming, safe, and supportive therapeutic environment is the key to emotional healing and personal growth. Working together, we will make sense of whatever has become a problem for you in the 'here and now' or enduring issues with their roots in the past. My hope is you will not only gain clarity and insight but know you have been understood in the context of your history, gender, sexuality and culture. I believe often when we are faced with fears linked to uncertainty, uncontrollability and unpredictability or feeling hopeless about the future, counselling/psychotherapy can support us to make a lasting change.
I have a BSc (Hons) Integrative Counselling (practicing since 2016) and I am an NHS Trainee High-Intensity CBT Therapist.
I am a registered member of the BACP (No. 247020) and Accredited UKCP Psychotherapeutic Counsellor (No. 2011163780) I adhere to their codes of ethics.
My registered name is Lesley Caroline Charles but everyone calls me Caroline day-to-day.
