    "Trust in yourself as a bird trusts its wings to fly"

    Carolyn is a clinical psychotherapist and counsellor who has over twenty years' experience working in the Education sector and has been a pastoral/spiritual carer in Melbourne's hospitals for many years. Carolyn is offering hourly holistic psychotherapy and counselling sessions in Moorabbin.


    Carolyn supports people to develop better understanding of themselves and others, address lifes difficulties and make the changes they want in their lives. She draws on a wide range of therapy interventions and is highly skilled in working across the spectrum of life difficulties. Carolyn works with current challenges and longer term difficulties. She provides both short and longer term services according to people's needs.


    How does Carolyn work?

    Carolyn works within clearly contracted, ethical relationships to support people to explore and resolve life difficulties. She focuses on enhancing people's capacity to cope with specific life challenges in all areas of life and specifically in relationships, bereavement; grief and loss and anxiety. Carolyn provides guidance that will help resolve crises, reduce distress, develop goals for change and improve wellbeing. Her sessions also assist with problem solving and developing inner resources to move on with life in meaningful ways. Often people notice that the nature of their personal difficulties is repetitive. Similar issues arise time and time again in different contexts and relationships. Carolyn can help improve better self understanding and change long-standing patterns of behaviour that may be disrupting overall wellbeing, impacting on other areas of life in general.


    How will Carolyn support you?

    Carolyn has respect for her clients values, beliefs, uniqueness and their right to self-determination. Over time, the gentle, safe, non-judgemental nature of Carolyn's counselling sessions makes it possible to explore experiences and unknown parts of self. She can take you beyond where you can go by yourself.

    - Samuel 2021


    "When I started seeing Carolyn I was by many standards doing well, yet I had an unexplained sense of crisis that resulted in severe anxiety and panic attacks. Carolyn talked me through and guided me to excavate unaddressed trauma that I had held unconsciously for too long. She helped me develop techniques and skills to become more reflexive and capable of managing my emotions. Thank you so much Carolyn, you are a gem!”
