Hi, welcome to my website.
I’m Carol; after years in a career in Warehousing and Retail, it became quite obvious that I wanted more from my life. I was no longer excited by hitting targets and managing productivities, there was no spark of joy for me anymore.
I realised that I wanted to feel like I was making a real difference in other peoples’ lives, and so with a deep breath, and some of nudging from those around me I retrained and became a counsellor.
I had always been drawn to people and they seemed to feel comfortable – often seeking me out – talking to me. Listening and empowering them when they felt at their most lowest point inspired me to embrace my new career and has provided me with a sense of achievement and a real meaning to my life which I recognised was missing.
Now I have have my own private practice and the privilege of being able to support individuals who are struggling with their mental health and well-being. I work with adults and older teens (15+), specialising in anxiety issues and work related stresses.
Why work with me?
How can I help you?
I have made a positive difference in many peoples’ lives. In my private practice I provide a safe confidential and nurturing space for you to explore your own unique experiences, thoughts and feelings. Together, we work to understand and find strategies, tools and solutions that enable you to make the positive changes you want to make. I draw on my training, personal life experiences, previous occupations and experience gained whilst volunteering for the mental health charity Mind
