Hello,  I am a fully qualified counsellor, having started training in 1998 and in part-time private practice in 2000. I am a member of BACP and have completed the four-year training programme at the Insitute of Psychosynthesis, where I was awarded my Counselling Diploma in 2017 and  Master’s Diploma in Psychosynthesis Psychology in June, 2019.  My Master’s Degree in Psychosynthesis Psychology was awarded by Middlesex University in 2019. My thesis was recognised with a distinction and the Emma Stavrou Thesis Award. I am completing a seven-month Couples Counselling training in July 2020. I have experience working in private practice and also in an NHS hospital setting (LivingWell CIC at St Charles Hospital) and the low-cost counselling service at the Psychosynthesis Trust. I have worked with clients on issues of trauma, anxiety, self-esteem, crises of meaning,  grief, addiction and co-dependency, body dysmorphia, chronic illness, depression, and career-change  and life-stage transition. I also part of a pilot project called ConnectWell,  a cross-disciplinary initiative to combat loneliness and isolation.  I have some evening availability and Fridays in the daytime. My therapy room is one minute walk from Richmond tube and train station.  During the current pandemic, I offer sessions on Zoom. Thank you, Carole
