Counselling and Mindfulness around Canterbury, Folkestone & Dover
"My counselling with Caroline has provided me with coping skills to come from the depths of despair to being happy, self assured and enjoying life to the full, for the first time since I can remember."

Are you feeling overwhelmed or stressed and wanting to find out how to cope in ways that work better for you? Perhaps you're feeling low or anxious, or feel there should be more to life than this. Or perhaps you need support in dealing with a specific situation or set of circumstances such as caring for someone, work, retirement or loss.
Speaking with me can help you to talk through whatever is distressing you, so that jointly we can develop a tailored approach to finding new ways of seeing things and managing differently. Counselling can't change your circumstances, but it can support you to make changes internally that can alter your perspective on life positively.
I am an integrative counsellor and use a range of different therapeutic options according to what works for you. My counsellor practice can be reached easily by car or train from Dover, Canterbury and Folkestone, either at my CT1 Canterbury base at Spring Gardens Clinic or in the village of Adisham CT3.

I have been a trained Integrative Supervisor of counsellors, allied professionals and complementary health practitioners since 2006. I offer both one to one and group support based on experience gained within the NHS (in hospital and through IAPT), community counselling services and whilst running a staff counselling service. Whether you are newly qualified or an experienced practitioner, I would welcome hearing from you.
Mindfulness is about gently training our powers of awareness of our experience as it unfolds. Its benefits are becoming increasingly well-known and include: reduced stress levels, an ability to step back and make wiser choices, increased flexibility and creativity, and embracing life.
At present I primarily offer one to one sessions, although at certain times of year I run group taster sessions, workshops, retreat days and 8 week Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) courses. I also co-host a monthly mindfulness evening at Witherdens Hall, Wingham. Whether you have never tried mindfulness before or are an experienced practitioner, this is a beautiful opportunity to share meditation in a friendly group on the first Monday of every month. For more details please visit my Mindfulness page or visit the Witherdens Hall, Wingham website.
I work as a counsellor and supervisor in two locations:
1. The village of Adisham is within easy reach of Canterbury, Dover, Folkestone, Ash, Sandwich and most of East Kent by car. Road parking is easy, and there is a train station within the village for those willing to undertake a 15 minute walk. Adisham station is on the train line between Dover and Canterbury.
2. The Spring Gardens Clinic, Simmonds Road, Wincheap, Canterbury CT1 3RD, which has on-site parking and is a 5 minute walk from Canterbury East railway station.
