As a therapist I work within the ethical framework of both the British Association for Counselling andPsychotherapy and the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association. Our work together is always governed by codes of confidentiality which I will discuss with you before we begin. My intention is to offer a warm, non-judgmental and confidential safe space for you to gather your thoughts and work through your issues.
We will work through whatever problems you bring or feelings that come up for you. With the intention that you access the inner resources that you may have lost touch with.
All my appointments are strictly confidential and our work can be as long or as short as you feel necessary. This will be reviewed regularly as we proceed.

More about my approach to therapy
The word therapy really means care and attention and the path you take to wellness is going to be uniquely your own. The Nurturing offers the following:
It may be that straight forward talk therapy is what you need, a safe place to be, a trusted confidante, a therapist to help you offload, work through things and find a way forward
It may otherwise suit you to in work in a more mindful body oriented way with Hakomi, to self study and uncover unconscious material that is limiting ur sense of self and fulfilment in life.
You might like to take walks in nature whilst exploring the issues, get the body moving, releasing the stress this way.
A really useful part of therapy is to discuss therapeutic lifestyle changes. There are so many things you can do to help yourself……physical, emotional and mental health are all connected, and having a plan to address aspects of each regularly can put you back on track to a better life quickly and cheaply
Psycho-education is another valuable tool. Having an understanding of the brain, how we develop and what happens when things go wrong, can minimize the self blame we often feel about our perceived inadequacies.

‘I started seeing Carolann about 2 years ago to work through some issues I was having in my personal life. Her approach, her amazing ability to listen without judgment, her inmensurable kindness and advice have seen me pull through and face my demons without the fear I always had. Carolann is, in a word, amazing and I would not hesitate in recommending her to anyone seeking help’
‘My time in counselling with Carolann was a rich journey of huge depth and self exploration for me spanning a few years. Through her professional and natural ability to offer and hold the therapeutic space for me with whatever I brought to the sessions, I experienced a genuine acceptance and understanding in all of my being, inviting me to enter into a process of deep self healing’
‘From a woman who has tried and tested some of the UK’s leading therapists…….. You are simply fantastic!’
