Relationship and Marriage Counselling

Myself and my husband Chris had been to a therapist previous to Carol and we were beginning to despair as this man had asked us to put on a VR headset to calm our nerves! ! It was not what we wanted.

Carol called me and explained the Imago process and she was professional and reassuring.
The first session we had consisted of Carol explaining the Imago process and her listening to why we were there. It was nerve racking at first and a strange process when you are not used to communicating in this way.
However, week by week we became more relaxed and the imago process allowed us to really listen to each other. It was freeing: to be heard and to have the space to really talk. It felt stilted at the beginning but it was such a powerful thing. Each session felt intense but Carol was always there to reassure us this was normal.

We did about 18 sessions in total and we use imago dialogue in our own lives naturally now. Carol was such a wonderful person to guide us through the process and we are very grateful!
Thank you Carol! We would thoroughly recommend her and this process.

Carol has helped me so much over the past few months after making me feel so relaxed in a safe environment from our very first session. I always feel at ease speaking to her about anything and everything I have been struggling with and she has truly helped me to understand and cope with a period of intense anxiety. I would recommend her to anyone seeking someone to speak to. More...

From the initial telephone consultation, Carol completely put me at ease and I felt that she would be the right counsellor to help my partner and I. We're still on the journey but even within the first couple of sessions we had valuable insight. Would highly recommend. More...

Carol is absolutely brilliant at what she does, and I can’t thank her enough. She found ways of looking into exactly what I was going through and feeling that I would have never been able to do on my own, and delved deep into my experiences to help me understand why I was feeling a certain way. The techniques and theories carol used varied, and all of them gave me a deeper understanding of myself and my emotions.

Carol is kind, respectful, understanding and an excellent listener, she made me feel heard at all times. The therapy room was super comfortable and modern, and the outdoor sessions are a great way of clearing your head.

I recommend Carol 100% for anyone’s therapy journey.

I am very grateful for the support that Carol has offered me in our work together so far. Carol has been extremely helpful in better understand my own emotional responses and unpack specific problems from my past. She is a very patient and compassionate listener who creates a safe, non-judgemental environment for me to open up. During our time together I have already seen a positive shift in my mindset and it is a great relief to feel like I’m making progress! More...

Carol has been fantastic in the 3 months since I started counselling. I’ve attempted counselling a couple of times over the years, but have never seen it through as it wasn’t helping and I didn’t feel comfortable. Carol put me at ease straight away and the balance between being asked questions but encouraging me to open up and lead at times is perfect( bringing me out of my comfort zone but allowing me to explore and understand deep rooted issues) Carol makes me feel at ease and I feel able to open up more as each session passes. I’m at the start of a journey, but Carol is helping me understand who I am and to develop a compassion for myself that I’ve never had. I look forward to continuing the journey and can’t thank Carol enough. More...

Q&As

Helping people find a new way of thinking, feeling, behaving & believing so that they can have a different life ahead of them.

Offering people an opportunity for self reflection & self learning and being on that journey with clients & really in it with them. It’s incredibly special & a real privilege.

I started personal therapy myself in 2014 & since then my life has totally changed & I have a real sense of who I am & why I am like I am. I wanted to allow other people to have this opportunity too & to go on that journey with them. I believe everyone can benefit from psychotherapy.

I believe psychotherapy should be mainstream & so I make sure my approach is personable, accessible & open. I trained at a brilliant institute that encourages personal growth & reflection & takes an experiential approach & believe that this style has been invaluable. I still do & will continue to have my own personal therapy as I believe I should also take responsibility for my continual personal growth in order to be a better therapist for my clients.
