Hi, I am Charlotte and I am a qualified Counsellor and Trauma Professional. I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP) and an accredited member of the NCPS. Counselling means that we will work together, trying to make sense of what you are struggling with, what you have been through, what you are experiencing and how this affects you in the present time. I believe our earliest relationships shape who we are and why we might be struggling with certain things. Untangling difficult emotions and thoughts can be challenging but we would do this together in a safe space. I have extensive experience working with clients who have a wide range of needs. I put focus on the therapeutic relationship which means we will be working as a team to explore, process and make sense of what's happened to you and what you are struggling with. I am offering a safe, non-judgemental space for you. Our initial consultation will be a 50-minute session. During your first session, I will ask questions to understand what you are struggling with and what brought you to therapy. This initial consultation is a good way for you to explore if counselling and me as your therapist feels like the right thing for you at this time.

My training is an humanistic, psychodynamic and trauma-informed approach. This means we will look at what has/is going on for you, and how this is affecting your daily life. We will look at early relationships and coping patterns, and how these are still affecting you today. I am offering an empathic, safe and non-judgemental space.

I have extensive experience working with clients who have a wide range of needs. These issues include anxiety, trauma, PTSD or C-PTSD, stress, depression, history of physical, emotional or sexual abuse, bereavement, identity issues, relationship and interpersonal difficulties,  self-esteem, attachment difficulties, traumatic events, psychosomatic difficulties, loneliness, anger, panic attacks, self-harm, OCD, loss and intrusive thoughts.  I am also insured to work with clients online from outside the UK.  I also offer counselling in German.
