Movement & Talking Therapy

for people who want to feel good in their skin

Hi, I'm Caroline

IMG_6216_edited_edited.jpg

I'm a therapist based in Midlothian and I support people with their mental and emotional wellbeing. I offer both movement based and talking based sessions to help my clients through challenging times and to reclaim their inner confidence and core self. 

Perhaps this is for you if you:

 

  • Want a better relationship with food and your body

  • Are constantly on the go making time for others (and not yourself)

  • Feel burnout, run down and emotionally wrung out

  • Are seeking recovery from an eating disorder or dysfunctional exercise behaviours

  • Feel disconnected from your body or unsafe in it

  • Feel lost, purposeless or lacklustre

  • Have experienced a traumatic life event and are finding it difficult to move on from it

  • Are fed up feeling rubbish about yourself

I have a specialism in working with eating disorders, disordered eating and helping people improve their relationship with their body

I offer both individual and group sessions in Midlothian, Scotland, and online.

Individual Sessions

Individual sessions are completely tailored to you.

I believe there's a place for talking through the things that are affecting us, and a place for moving through them. It makes sense to me that I offer both!

Some people come to me with a known preference towards moving or talking, others just know that they want my support. That's ok, as in reality it's never quite black and white. So don't worry about needing to know where we start, let's have a chat first.  

Group Sessions

I offer group sessions on a regular basis, both online and in-person. These range from one-off movement based classes or workshops, to short therapeutic courses that bring various elements of support together. 

If you are in interested in any of the following please get in touch:

6 week yoga based course, aimed at easing the body towards the shortest day. Delicious grounding movement combined with stabilising and settling stillness, so you feel both refreshed and calm as the nights get longer. 

Mondays 7:30 - 8:30pm online starting Monday 14th November 

8 week course combining body based awareness and behaviour change, to help you form a more positive body image for yourself. 

Starting early 2023

About me

I integrate many different therapies and modalities into my practice I draw heavily from somatic and body awareness therapies and humanistic psychology, often fused with behavioural change strategies.

I have a special interest in working with people's relationship with food and their body. This includes working with those experiencing eating disorders and supporting them to find their place of recovery.

I also educate other professionals about eating disorders, with a specialism in the unique role that movement and exercise therapy can play in eating disorder recovery.

I am a member of BABCP.

Words From My Clients

From our first session I felt like a weight had been lifted from my shoulders. I finally felt understood and listened to. You got me and I can't tell you what a difference that in itself made to how I was feeling.

I found Caroline by accident (or maybe not), and I liked her own story of eating disorder recovery. It resonated with where I was.  At the beginning of each session, we would have a 5 or 10 minute chat about how I was doing and what had been happening since the last session. Then we'd do yoga. I don't know how she did it, but it always spoke exactly to me! I liked that could take that away with me and practice at home myself if I felt I needed to, but often the session itself changed my perspective.  I had 8 sessions with Caroline which were absolutely invaluable. I'm so grateful to Caroline for her support and wisdom.  ”

 I can’t thank you enough for the difference you’ve made to how I feel. For weeks and weeks I’ve struggled. Now I feel more excited about the future. And I feel like I have one.

RA

Thank you for making it so easy and comfortable for me to talk about how I am feeling about my body. I honestly didn't imagine getting to that point never mind beginning to think that I could actually find a way to like my body. The session today was very enlightening and I'm feeling very hopeful about moving forward from here.

At this moment - and long may it last - food seems to have lost its power. There doesn’t seem to be the same psychological crutch type reliance on the contents of my fridge and cupboards. 

I’m really glad I’m going through this process with you, you’re awesome!!!

You got me to believe in myself, Thank you so much xxx

Caroline, what a ray of sunshine you are! Even in the hardest of conversations your warmth comes through and I find myself knowing that somehow everything will be ok.
