About me and my therapy practice
I specialise in Trauma and Life Counselling
Trauma is our body's response to a significantly stressful or distressing event which can completely take over our ability to cope in "life situations".
Having counselling can normalise the experience of trauma and by giving a name to the "enemy" it can help you build coping strategies.
Everyone is unique, and I have counselled some amazing people who have survived sexual and childhood abuse, low self esteem, depression, the loss of a significant person in their life either from death or illness or the loss of a friendship, marriage, business, home or employment.
I offer Couple's Counselling which is an 8 week programme at £125.00 per session.
My style of counselling incorporates the following Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, Person Centered and Gestallt.
My name is Carole and I am from Talking Minds Counselling.
I work with men, women and young people and I can also offer Life Counselling if change and direction is needed.
I offer a safe place which is yours for 50 minutes each session to talk confidentially about whatever you want. Sometimes we need to be heard and to have someone who is non judgemental, listens, is empathetic and kind.
So what can I do for you?
I can be there just for you to listen and to challenge you. You will have an independent person on your team. No fuss, no doubting just 100% support for you.
I work from bright and beautiful counselling rooms in St Albans where I can offer face to face counselling, or if you are further afield or internationally based then I can offer video counselling.
Confidentiality is paramount in counselling but I am happy to sign “non disclosure agreements” for my clients high profile or not.
My first session
I offer a free 15 minute telephone or video consultation where you get a chance to meet me and ask any questions you may have about counselling. It will also give me a chance to establish what is bringing you to counselling and how I can help you.
If you wish to proceed to the next stage we will then book a 50 minute session at a time convenient to yourself and my availability.
