Level 5 was the most enjoyable year of my training…rich with learning, well delivered and stimulating. I finally found the support that I needed to work in the way that I wanted. Caroline was supportive, boundaried, ethical and organised and I am able to model this to my clients knowing how it felt to have received it. Julie Durno MBACP

Caroline’s support has helped to guide my independent practice, from tentatively starting and building to where it is now, a full time, thriving clinical practice. Laura Benham MBACP

I have known Caroline in a training capacity for almost 10 years now. Within that time I have returned to her for many courses and CPD events. I can highly recommend her comprehensive knowledge on all things counselling from theory, to safeguarding, to self care. She has an excellent reputation within the counselling community. Having completed the Diploma in Clinical Supervision almost two years ago I  can say it was highly informative, the training robust, and the warm ’emotional holding’ from her as a trainer was really reassuring.
