Movement and Talking Therapy to help you be happy in yourself
Hi, I'm Caroline
I'm a coach, counsellor and movement therapist.
I offer both movement based and talking based sessions.
Perhaps this is for you if you:
Want to build a better relationship with food and your body
Are fed up feeling rubbish about yourself and want to improve your self esteem
Are seeking recovery from an eating disorder, disordered eating or dysfunctional exercise behaviours
Have been through a tough time with your body and want to regain connection and confidence with it
Feel disconnected from your body or unsafe in it
Feel burnout, run down and wrung out
Have experienced a traumatic life event and are finding it difficult to move on from it
I have a particular specialism in working with eating disorders, disordered eating and compulsive exercise
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.
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 that I currently have on offer then you can book directly online or get in touch with me to ask more
COMING IN 2023
I have 20 years experience of working with individuals and the relationship they have with their body and themself. I originally came from a physical movement perspective but soon came to understand that our body holds our emotions and our experiences in ways that our thinking brain cannot. And so began my journey into psychotherapeutic practices.
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 am passionate about my work 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.
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.
