Personal Therapy

‘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’

Client, Sussex, UK

‘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’

Client – Surrey, UK

‘From a woman who has tried and tested some of the UK’s leading therapists…….. You are simply fantastic!’
