My name is Carolyn Barker. I am a Person Centered Counsellor with more than 10 years experience working with adults and children and families. I am experienced in working in a range of settings such as schools, colleges, university, and NHS.
As your counsellor, I can offer you time and space within a safe environment to explore your problems without feeling judged.
Sometimes in life we can find it hard to talk to family and friends because we feel judged and talking to someone who doesn't know us may feel easier.
It may be that you feel lower than usual and cant understand why? You may be struggling with depression anxiety or stress? you maybe suffering emotional pain with the loss of a loved one, divorce, job or something else? Or it maybe you feel lost, scared or overwhelmed and confused with everyday life. What ever it may be, I am here to work alongside you, so we can explore your feelings and thoughts within a safe and confidential environment.
In the counselling space we will create together, I can offer a relationship built on trust, warmth and empathy. I will not give you advice or tell you what to do because I believe that we all have the resources within ourselves and the ability to know ourselves better than anyone. We are all unique individuals, and given the right conditions and environment we are able to grow and change, and within our counselling sessions you may learn to start making your own decisions and choices again.
I am able to offer telephone and online counselling sessions but given the current pandemic restrictions, I am unable to offer face to face at the moment.
Mrs Carolyn Barker
