“When I was struggling with some challenges in my life I was supported by Caroline – she enabled me to talk through my concerns and fears and worked with me to develop ways to manage and cope with the stresses of those challenges on a day to day basis. Her caring, calm and individual approach was like a big hug that led me through when I thought I really could not cope, and without that support I’m not sure where I would be now. I now have the means to cope and they are ways I can manage that really work for me. Caroline has a way of finding what works for you through discussion and her vast knowledge. All I can say is thank you and I’m sure our paths will cross again – be sure you will be the first person I call on.” ~ Claire
“I began my journey with Caroline at a time of heightened emotion and great anxiety, and over the course of our work together she has not only taught me how to self-regulate, but also given me the tools to navigate life more clearly and confidently. She has been the first therapist I’ve encountered to start by clearly identifying goals, and she has worked patiently and diligently, with me to achieve them. I’m grateful that she quickly recognised my personality and ‘quirks’ and embraced them, and she managed to effortlessly create a rapport and adapt on that basis. Caroline is thorough, action-orientated and direct but also brims with compassion, empathy and care. She used many tools and techniques from her vast therapeutic background and I learnt so much about the brain and the way we think – they really should teach this stuff in schools! I feel like everyone deserves to have ‘a Caroline’ in their lives – it’s an incredibly enriching and worthwhile investment. I have, and will continue to recommend her to anyone I hear about that is struggling, or that even just wants some extra support or better understanding of themselves. She’s changed my life for the better and I will be eternally grateful to her for that. ” ~ Katie
“As a bloke I hadn’t really thought about therapy. Following a traumatic experience I was recommended to see Caroline. The first step was to admit to myself that I needed to seek help and I am so glad I did. From my experience of therapy with Caroline over the past 9 months, I can only thank her for her help. All this time forward I can honestly say it was the best decision I made at the time and would definitely recommend anyone to go and see Caroline.” ~ James
“I had been having therapy with Caroline on and off, but in 2018 I fell off the perch and totally burnt out from my career. It was Caroline who I immediately rang as I trusted her whole heartedly. I finally made the time to allow her to support me to peel back those layers and help me to get to the core of my trauma’s – something that in the past I just didn’t have the time to do. I honestly owe this next chapter of my life to Caroline, she is my guardian angel who sits on my shoulder.” ~ Susan
“I’d like to thank Caroline from the bottom of my (previously) broken heart. I contacted her in January 2022 after I unknowingly fell into deep depression after the loss of my parents in 2018 and 2020. Me being a “man’s man, a blokey bloke”, I didn’t grieve or show my emotions and tried to hold it all in until, I had a nervous breakdown. I was in a seriously bad way emotionally and mentally. I contacted Caroline as recommended and had a series of sessions with her on a weekly basis which has got me back on track. I am now able to carry on with enjoying my life with my children, grandchildren and friends. Don’t be a blokey bloke, be a man about it and please contact her.” ~ Derek
“I really enjoyed coming to see Caroline as it gave me someone to talk to about my worries and she helped me to understand the cause of my anxiety. I was able to find lots of different coping strategies and they have really helped me, as I now feel more confident and calm in myself. I am being positive, taking care of myself and I don’t let anxiety rule my life anymore.” ~ Chloe
“I have enjoyed our sessions SOOO much. You’ve helped me pick through the crap stuff, feel more myself in the present and start thinking about the future … and you’ve made me laugh too; you have a wonderful, authentic, straightforward style which I really like.” ~ S.S.
“My experience of coaching-therapy with Caroline can be summed up as emotional, calming and peaceful. It teaches you a different way of thinking about yourself and how to deal with your issue/situation. It was very helpful with my issue to be more assertive. Thank you again for helping me, I feel different these days, a better person.” ~ A. Kilmister
“Being 25, you would think you are at a high point in your life, therapy wasn’t even on your radar as you should be enjoying life and coming home late from partying hard and have work the next day – but not in my case. I’ve had the toughest 5 years and in those 5 years I have developed an unhealthy way of dealing with stress, my depression and anxiety. I’ve seen a therapist at the worst point in my life, who only ever watched me cry and made me answer a questionnaire and rate 1-10 on how I feel/felt in the past week. I only ever attended 3 sessions and from there I concentrated on building my career. One day, I had the worst panic attack ever, which was triggered over something small. One of my clients recommended that I see Caroline, as she had helped her get to where she is today. I didn’t think me seeing someone and telling them how I feel will work, as I’ve become such a thick skinned person – showing emotion is not what I do, nor is being the one who is ‘emotional’ or ‘vulnerable’ as I am always the person who everyone comes to and leans on. After a few sessions, I broke down to Caroline! Which is HUGE for me. There are days where I feel like I don’t want to talk – as I’m not used to it, but Caroline’s aura is so inviting and welcoming I seem to never stop talking when I have my sessions with her. She helped me to realise that dealing with the past and my emotion is ok! It’s ok not to be ok all the time ESPECIALLY being in the industry that I’m in. Caroline, is someone who I trust and am ever so grateful for. Listening to my story and repeating it in a different light helped me to realise so much. Thank you for EVERYTHING Caroline. You have brought my smile back and helped me handle life differently.” ~ Natasha
“I’d been feeling overwhelmed and like my life was constantly a balancing act. I wasn’t in control and I felt like everything I did was a half measure. Caroline helped me to understand why I felt exhausted and demotivated and gave me tools and strategies to manage how I felt. In the past I’ve seen professionals who have listened but haven’t given any solid coping mechanisms. Sessions felt constructive and Caroline is warm and professional. I have already recommended her to both my friends and family.” ~ Lindy
“I approached Caroline for some 1:1 sessions to help me with a medical issue. I had a very difficult decision to make regarding my treatment options. Caroline was enormously helpful in getting me to think positively and not to jump ahead. She is a very caring person as well as very professional. I found the sessions very rewarding and the techniques that I learned to get through this stressful episode of my life, are ones that I have already applied to other issues that have come up.” ~ Michelle
“Perhaps atypically, I decided to embark on a series of therapy sessions at a time where I had come to a fresh start in my life. I felt I needed to make the fresh start count. I was not unhappy, but aware that I wanted to avoid falling into unhelpful old patterns and I had a need for personal development. Caroline was recommended by a friend and she has made a tremendous difference in my quest for understanding past patterns and forming new and healthy ones. Now I choose to have regular sessions to maintain the good work and it feels like a safe anchor, reminding me of my qualities as well as my pitfalls and how far I have come. Caroline has a gift for asking the right questions to make you grow and develop. It’s a rare thing! I am profoundly grateful for her work with me.” ~ H.H.
“A very good friend, for 2 years kept telling me to visit Caroline but I was reluctant because of an ill-conceived notion of what therapy actually did. Towards the end of 2015 I found myself in a particularly heightened state of anxiety. Ahead of me was a plane journey; I hate being shut in, and a new and more senior job. The negative chatterbox had escalated and I felt immobilised with fear and anxiety. Contacting Caroline is now way up there on my list of good decisions made. I have spent most of my adult life struggling with anxiety, so, to find myself speaking with someone who clearly understood what I was saying and feeling was an immense relief. Caroline’s knowledge and expertise is remarkable and this made me feel safe – “she gets it” is what I said to my friend. Yes, I have had to put in some hard work which will continue but the rewards have been immense. I am better informed, better equipped and happy to live my life in the now.” ~ K.S.
“I strongly recommend Caroline as a coach-therapist. I am very grateful to her for the support and encouragement she gave me when I was feeling very anxious and lost after a stressful period in my life. She is very welcoming and understanding and knows just how to direct my thoughts in order to help me work through situations, identify my needs and find ways to move forward. I now feel back in control of my life.” ~ A. Dickson
“If you have accepted that you are possibly suffering from anxiety, I have learnt that you have choices and maybe a mixture of both therapy and medication would be good for you. I decided that I would try anything before medication. I am so grateful to Caroline for her professionalism and understanding. I found I was able to discuss all areas of my life with great ease and openness and I was confident that it was completely confidential and not judgemental in any way. This was so important in being able to move forward and feeling better within myself, it is not easy and you have to put a lot of effort into changing your life in small steps. With Caroline’s support along the way it was and is achievable. Best of all for me, no medication!” ~ Sue
“Caroline – thank you for listening, for understanding and for supporting. Even though my time with you was spent on a timer, those hours were all you needed to make me feel like I was worth more. No matter how broken I felt when I arrived for my session, you put me back together and I left feeling lighter in spirit. You are the warmest and most genuine soul I know.” ~ Debbie
“I cannot recommend Caroline highly enough. If like me you are facing a long standing issue or for me work behaviours/patterns that “won’t go away”, she will guide you in a structured and supportive way to help you find your own workable resolution. Caroline is highly skilled in asking questions that you may not have wanted to pose yourself or found ways to avoid!! Some questions stopped me in my tracks – and these were the really searching ones that enabled me to move forwards quickly. She kept me focused on my issue throughout the sessions, and provided useful self-help strategies along the way which I have been able to build into my work practice/routines. Thank you Caroline.” ~ H. Evans
“I can now see things more clearly. The 1:1 sessions helped me with problems I was having in my business and gave me a chance to talk over options of how I can manage my stress at work. I also attended a group seminar that Caroline presented and it really made me think. The one thing that sticks in my mind now is “don’t meet failure halfway” and I must say just learning this alone has made a difference to my everyday life. I would happily recommend Caroline to others.” ~ Mike
“Caroline has been fundamental in changing many aspects of my life. I am a professional designer at the top of my game, extremely successful in what I do and very proud of my achievements. Before I met Caroline I was stressed, full of self-doubt and anxious about what was round the corner. Now, thanks to Caroline, I focus on the positive.” ~ S.M.
“Caroline’s therapy improved the way I thought and felt about myself. I had very low self-esteem and not much confidence. It gave me the thought processes and boost I needed to gain control of my own life. Now I can talk to anyone and really enjoy everything about my life and am now going to Australia for a whole year ON MY OWN!! Caroline is truly inspirational and I feel blessed to have her in my life!!” ~ S.L.
“Caroline has, over the last two years, really challenged my thinking. She has guided me to make changes to my life I had been hesitant to face and these changes have been for the better. She is highly skilled at making you face the big issues that have been sitting on your shoulder not going away as well as giving you tips and strategies to deal with things in ‘bite sized’ chunks. I can’t recommend her more highly. She is an extremely skilled practitioner.” ~ Frances
“I embarked on a course of sessions looking for help with managing stress and getting a good night’s sleep. I got much more than just that out of it. During a very demanding period, Caroline’s guidance was helpful in bringing about a change of perspective and some much needed life readjustments. I’ve passed on the techniques she taught me to my children, friends and colleagues and I wonder why we don’t teach this stuff in schools – truly necessary life skills!” ~ Tracy
“I’ve seen big and positive changes in myself” ~ Stuart
“Just wanted to say thank you for the sessions, they really did help me to get where I am now. Thank you for your wisdom and support – you are a very gifted lady.” ~ Michelle
“My thinking patterns were costing me everything – my health, concentration and focus. I felt sad, tearful and was beating myself up. I wanted peace, to feel better about myself, clear-headed and to get control back. I could relate to most of what Caroline explained to me about the effects of stress, so I needed to put it all right. She helped me to look at things in a different perspective and that certainly helped me to get motivated. After 6 sessions I am much more relaxed and silly little things no longer bother me. The thing that stands out the most for me from our sessions is that other people’s opinions are just words and not always facts. The 1:1 sessions put everything in my life back into perspective and I approach situations in a different way instead of getting anxious. Thank you Caroline.” ~ Jackie
“I found the 1:1 sessions a brilliant way to focus my thinking on lifestyle choices and how to incorporate physical challenges into a busy life. With Caroline’s expert guidance and intuitive questions to ponder and answer, I found myself really learning to approach life differently. She was skilful in the way in which she structured the journey. She was able to listen intently and with purpose to what I said, and at the same time always being positive in her feed back and observations. It genuinely has made a difference to how I live my life.” ~ Nicky
“I have been very pleased with the outcome. My time management is much improved, I take action quicker and I am communicating better. Perhaps most importantly, I feel more confident when taking decisions and actions.” ~ Andy
“I was stressed due to lack of self-belief and Caroline motivated and helped me to build up my confidence. She has been supportive, non-judgemental and positive during my sessions. ~ Sara
“I was letting fear stop me from living my life. Now I am doing so well! I regularly do things to test my boundaries. Really enjoying life and feel like I constantly have a positive outlook. THANK YOU!” ~ M.R.
