Client Experience

When you meet with Caroline for the first time, she will have a lot of questions for you. This is because Caroline needs to get to know you and the issues you are struggling with. You and Caroline become a team for the duration of your appointments, working through your issues, the background or causes relating to them, and exploring which strategies may best help you to regain strength, confidence, and forward momentum. If you are feeling lost or lacking direction, Caroline will help you to explore your values and passions and how to move toward expressing them in your daily life. Caroline will help you to grow in self-knowledge, self-esteem, confidence, and self-compassion. Caroline will help you to understand why you think the way you do, and how to address thoughts that are self-defeating. While much of this work is done in the counselling room, you can also anticipate a bit of homework to help you to move forward and to consolidate your good work.
