Welcome to Counselling with Caro

Listening with compassion and understanding

COUNSELLING AND THERAPY FOR INDIVIDUALS

I'm an experienced BACP accredited counsellor with a particular interest in supporting adults finding it hard to cope with loss and grief, anxiety, or facing difficulties in a relationship. Our day to day lives involve so many demands that it can be an effort to take a break and give some proper attention to our own wellbeing. Talking through your concerns with someone who is not part of your life gives you the freedom to focus on yourself.

I am accredited by the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and I hold a Diploma in Humanistic Integrative Counselling.

My further training includes:

– Transactional analysis

– Trauma and recovery, and Attachment disorder and trauma

– Stress management

– Drug, alcohol and addictions awareness

– Working with concerned relatives affected by drug/alcohol use

– Online and telephone counselling

– Ecotherapy & Walk and Talk Counselling

– Cruse Bereavement Support supervisor training

In addition to my private practice, I volunteer with Cruse Bereavement Support as a supervisor and I’m a counsellor for Momentum Children’s charity which supports families of seriously ill children.


Previous experience includes: working for Pavilions Drugs and Alcohol Service in their Families and Carers Team; counselling the bereaved and those anticipating bereavement at St Catherine’s Hospice in Crawley; as a listening volunteer for the Samaritans.

I follow the Ethical Framework of my professional body (BACP) to ensure that I work safely and professionally. This means that I have regular professional supervision, I’m fully insured and I am also registered with the Information Commissioner’s Office and comply with their guidance on data protection. I hold an enhanced DBS certificate.

HOW CAN COUNSELLING HELP?

My approach is to listen with compassion and understanding and I aim to get to know your experience of being you. I won’t tell you what to do or what choices to make because you know yourself better than anyone. I will help you explore what you’re dealing with and together we can consider what changes you might want to make.

I work confidentially and without judgement so that you are able to share your worries and fears, no matter how confusing or dark they may be. I’ll respond to whatever you bring, drawing on different approaches to find an effective way of working that suits you.

MY LOCATION

I work online and in person at quiet, comfortable private counselling rooms in Hove and Worthing. I also offer Walk and Talk counselling in Hove.

Hove rooms: there are good bus services and on-street parking is available at the usual rate for the area. There are some rooms on the ground floor however there is a short flight of steps from the street to the main entrance. If you have accessibility needs I am happy to discuss possible alternatives.

Worthing rooms: these are on the ground floor with one step at the entrance. Free on-street parking is available, or Worthing train station is about 10 minutes walk.

FEES & AVAILABILITY

I offer short term (6 – 12 weeks) and long term (open ended) counselling, meeting weekly at the same time. At the moment, I have some availability at the Worthing rooms on Wednesday lunchtime, or in Hove on Wednesday evening and Friday daytime. We can discuss how many sessions you’d like to start with, and we can review at regular intervals.

My fee for individual counselling is £60 for each 50 minute session and I can take payment by cash or card at each session, or you can pay in advance by bank transfer. Note that I require 48 hours notice if you are unable to attend, otherwise the fee remains payable.
