Profile

Carol Aitken

I worked in a large corporate environment for 15 years prior to retraining and
qualifying as a counsellor. During this time I discovered a passion to help
people grow. There can be times when we feel stuck, unfulfilled or struggle
to change aspects of our lives or find we lack the self belief or strength to make change last – this is where I offer support.

I have been working in counselling for over 14 years and have therefore gained vast experience of working with many client issues.  I am an Affiliated Counsellor with several Employment Assistant Programmes, including Axa, Validium, Lifeworks and Health Assured.  I am registered to provide counselling through Bupa and Aviva Healthcare and provide specific support for individuals following road traffic accidents.

I enjoy delivering training workshops and facilitating groups,  and provide this through my own business and on behalf of organisations such as Health Assured and Breast Cancer Care.

I would describe myself as an integrative therapist who uses various techniques to create the best care for your specific needs. I believe that each of us have the ability within ourselves to adapt and change. This can often get lost in times of anxiety, confusion or stress.

I am an accredited member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) regulated by their professional code of conduct and work within their code of ethics.

I can offer counselling across a broad range of areas, some of which include:

  • Stress and Anxiety
  • Bereavement; loss/change
  • Relationships
  • Depression
  • Work related difficulties
  • Low Self Esteem
  • Low Self Confidence
  • Anger Management
  • Personal Challenges, such as weight loss
