I am Carol the founder of Shine Through Counselling. I am a qualified Integrative Counsellor who works with adults, teenagers and children, I also work therapeutically with both parent and child together. I work from Maldon, Chelmsford and also Stratford, East London. I offer both short term, solution focused work as well as longer term counselling/therapy.

I have worked with children and teenagers in various capacities for many years, particularly in supporting children with special educational needs. Over the past five years I have worked within both primary and secondary schools providing individual counselling sessions to pupils, as well as running stress management groups. I currently work for an organisation that support children and teenagers from families where there is, or have been issues around drug and alcohol abuse.

My integrative training means that I have a range of modalities on which to draw which include, person/child centred, use of the arts, play therapy, CBT and mindfulness.

I hold a full and up to date DBS (enhanced) check and full liability insurance. My work is supported by a clinical supervisor as required by the BACP.
