About me


Caroline Olive BSc Hons. MBACP

I am an experienced Counsellor/Psychotherapist with 12 years’ experience and I’ve been trained in the Psychodynamic approach. This type of counselling focuses on thinking about our inner world – how past and present experiences have influenced us and how patterns emerge in our lives and our relationships with those around us. I believe that understanding where we have been in life is at the heart of learning where we might be going in our personal lives.

I am registered with and a member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy  – the professional body that represents counselling and psychotherapy. I work within their professional code of conduct as outlined in their ethical framework. This covers confidentiality, non-discrimination and professionalism.

My specialist areas include:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Relationship difficulties
  • Abuse and trauma
  • Loss and bereavement
  • Low self esteem
  • Stress and work issues

Out of our vulnerabilities will come strength
