About me and my therapy practice

Hi, my name is Carolyn Barker. 

I am a MBACP registered Person Centred counsellor with over 10 years experience working with adults, children and adolescents with a wide variety of issues, within settings such as NHS, Womans refuge charities, CAMHS, schools, colleges, and universities. 

As your counsellor, I can offer you time and a safe space to explore your problems without feeling judged.

In the counselling space we will create together, I can offer a relationship built on trust, warmth and empathy. I will not give you advice or tell you what to do because I believe that we all have the resources within and the ability to know ourselves better than anyone. 

Sometimes in life we can find it hard to talk to family and friends because we feel judged and talking to someone who we don’t know may feel easier. 

 

Practice description

You may feel lower than usual and cant understand why? struggling with depression anxiety or stress? suffering emotional pain with the loss of a loved one, divorce, job or something else? 

Whatever you may be going through, I am here to work alongside you so we can explore your feelings and thoughts within a safe and confidential space.

Given this safe space, you will start to understand yourself better and you may learn to start making your own decisions and choices again.
