MBACP | UKCP Registered Psychotherapist
Charlotte has always had a huge curiosity about how people’s personalities, including her own, have developed and how patterns can keep being repeated. It is from learning how to break free from these patterns and find a new healthier way of being that can help us fulfill our potential in life.
She has an MA in Integrative Child and Adolescent Psychotherapy and Counselling from Terapia, which is affiliated with Middlesex University. She also has a Certificate in Counselling Skills and Theoretical Perspectives from Terapia, which enables her to work with adults as well. She is accredited with UKCP and a member of BACP
Charlotte’s training was Integrative, which means she has a whole toolbox of techniques and theories to draw upon appropriate to the clients needs. She will be seeing New Leaf counselling clients from Shepton Mallet, Bath and Frome areas.
These include CBT, Art Therapy and Sand Tray Therapy amongst others.
She provides a safe, warm and non-judgmental space and generally works in a non-directive client-led way although will often suggest specific techniques if someone seems stuck with anger or grief for example. If therapy is short term she will work in a more directive, solution-focused way.
Once feelings have been expressed verbally or non-verbally (using the sand tray or art equipment for example) they can be talked about more openly, acknowledged, contained and hopefully moved on from, allowing the client to explore more healthy ways to achieve their full potential in life. Charlotte grew up in Somerset and after spending 18 years in London, training and working and gaining much experience with different client groups, has now returned to Somerset.
Charlotte has worked with children in various capacities for over 20 years, as well as working therapeutically with adults in the last couple of years. She has had a private practice with adults in Kentish Town in London and now works near Shepton Mallet.
Charlotte has experience with bereavement, depression, anger, eating disorders and self-esteem problems to name a few.
She has UKCP accreditation and is also a member of BACP, having regular supervision with a UKCP accredited supervisor.
