Welcome, I'm Caroline
I help people whose relationship with their body, food or exercise has become problematic for them.
This might show up as:
- disordered eating or eating disorders
- finding it difficult to rest or slow down
- feeling unsafe in your body
- panic attacks
- feelings of guilt or shame about food or your body
- persistent pain or pain flare ups
- persistent dislike of your body
It might be causing you difficulties in one specific area of your life, or in many.
I am here to help.
I have a specialism in supporting those experiencing eating disorders or compulsive exercise and also in using movement to support trauma recovery.
I'm here to help you understand the symptoms, behaviours and feelings that have become difficult to manage and to help you find new, more resourceful ways of relating to your body. I'm here to help you learn how to feel in charge of your life and to enjoy living it without that constant fog of dealing with your body.
My practice is a combination of many things that I have trained in over the years and that personally helped me in my own recovery of feeling unsafe and unhappy in my body: from counselling skills, coaching, NLP, CBT, mindfulness through to yoga, body awareness therapy and guided journalling. At the heart of it all is seeing you first & foremost, meeting you where you are at, and helping you move forward in ways that make sense to you.
I've been described as being 'pragmatically positive'. I know life's not full of unicorns and rainbows. But I also I believe that we all have the capacity, and capability, within us to thrive in life - regardless of our past experiences - and I'm here to help you do just that.
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
I found Caroline by accident (or maybe not), and I liked her own story of 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.
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
I've been paying attention to what I feel at any given time and really trying to experience it rather than try to name it or figure it out. And, I've had almost no pain since seeing you last time! So yes please, if you can wave your magic wand and do more of the same that would be great!
