About me

Carol’s first priority is to provide a professional, ethical, and effective service.

She blends her professional and personal expertise as a mental health care professional to guide you to achieve the balance required to navigate personal and professional challenges with confidence.

Personal therapy can help you identify the links between your family of origin experiences and your choice of occupation. You may be familiar with assuming particular modes of reacting to issues such as conflict, perfectionism and criticism.

Carol can help you take notice of unhelpful relational patterns that feel automatic and perpetuate stress, worry and self doubt. She draws from psychodynamic and attachment theories within a Group Analytic framework to help you understand this more clearly. Her approach will help you increase your self awareness and to understand your thoughts, feelings and behaviours in the context of the familial, relational, and organisational systems in which you operate. As therapy progresses, you will feel more able to respond to challenges with flexibility. This frees you up to think and act in a manner that serves your needs better and helps you achieve the sustainable balance you seek.

Areas of interest

Panic attacks; recurrent anxiety; “imposter syndrome”; insomnia; uncontrollable worry; depression.
People may seek therapy when they recognise feeling out of balance. Personal, parenting and/or professional relationships may be strained.

Carol provides space to enable individuals to make sense of painful and common behaviours we can all adopt at times to cope with life’s pressures e.g. dependencies on, or control of, relationships, food, sex, alcohol, work or technology.
