Caroline began training in counselling and psychotherapy over 14 years ago.
Prior to that, she lived in Turkey where she ran her own restaurant and hotel business for ten years. Upon returning to the UK, Caroline worked as a Turkish translator for Local Government, Gloucestershire County Council and Gloucestershire Constabulary.
During this time, she set up a support group in Gloucester for Kurdish and Turkish women seeking asylum or refugee status. This was when the magic happened: she decided to learn more about the field of counselling to offer enduring and substantial support to those who need it.
Since qualifying as a psychotherapist and hypnotherapist, Caroline has worked at GLOSCOL (Cheltenham, Gloucester and Royal Forest of Dean) as head of psychological services for personnel and students – working with students ages 15 to 70.
Her motivation is fuelled by her constant curiosity in human behaviour and how truly inspiring each person can be.
"After my first visit with Caroline I instinctively knew that her approach was right for me. Each session gave me something to focus on in between sessions to enable me to understand myself in more depth. This allowed me to clear my mind and give me the ability to move forward with my life. I truly believe I would not have got through a difficult time in my life without her." - SS, Gloucestershire
