Hi, I am Caroline Hewitt and I am the founding member of Centred Counselling. I am a qualified Person Centred Counsellor and a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).
Sometimes in this fast-paced life, we lose track of who we are and what we genuinely want for ourselves, it’s easy to become overwhelmed and stuck. Our thoughts and feelings don’t always match up and sometimes they are based in past events or future concerns, this can make day to day living a struggle.
In my practice, it is my aim to offer you a safe space where you can begin to unpick what is happening for you, even if you’re not sure where to start. Though it often doesn’t feel like it, I believe that each person is unique and has an innate ability towards healing and in my role as a counsellor, I will endeavour to journey alongside you as you discover this for yourself.
I am able to offer face to face and online counselling and have daytime/evening and weekend availability.
Other Relevant Training:
I am a fully insured registered member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists I am currently working towards accreditation with them.
I am also a member of the local group for counsellors, Westcountry Association for Counsellors, we meet regularly to enjoy each other’s company and share continued professional development.
I attend regular supervision to ensure I am working ethically and safely at all times and meet the requirements laid down for BACP membership.
My practice is predominantly Person Centred because it recognises our base needs as human beings to feel safe, accepted without judgement and to be understood. I am however able to offer alternative ways of working, should you be interested. I have experience of working creatively with elements from:
I welcome expression through sandtray, writing, drawing, timelines, music.
We value you for who you are. Life squeezes us into all sorts of shapes that we may not naturally choose to be in, so we strive to know the real you and offer a safe space free of judgements.
Our professionalism is what ensures that we off offer you a safe service. Our Counsellors are all qualified, registered and insured as well as friendly and approachable.
Though we are in business, we are not robots, we too are human beings. It’s important to us to be real and honest with you and hope that you can be with us.
We believe your safety is paramount. Whether this means within the environment that we meet in or the level of therapy you are experiencing, we will ensure that your welfare is our focus.
We recognise that talking therapies can be enhanced through creativity and other forms of expression and we welcome this into our sessions.
We would like to offer everyone a chance to access counselling if they wish too, but recognise for some there may be additional hurdles, contact us and we will do all that we can to help.
The confidentiality of what you bring to us is a top priority. From your personal details to what you talk to us about in your sessions, we handle all information sensitively and with respect.
We don’t want you to be waiting for a response, we handle our client’s requests quickly and efficiently to make you feel valued and supported when you need help.
We’ll be there, just for you, when it is time for your appointment. You can rely on us to work with the same care and sensitivity right throughout your therapy.
When you contact us we will be explicit about the services we can offer you, we will listen carefully to how you would like to proceed and work with you to set up a first session.
Once counselling has begun you will be able to talk about anything that is important to you within your session, with your counsellor. Your counsellor will help to create a safe space and support you to reflect upon your thoughts and feelings.
Having an independent person to talk freely too and be genuinely heard can be a transformative process, easing the emotions and thought processes that may have built up.
We are passionate about helping people live happier and more rewarding lives. Our BACP registered counsellors are ready to listen.
