Dr Carol Chapman

Professional Services

I offer a range of services from brief counselling to long-term psychotherapy and I select a tailored approach for each individual which I consider to be the most helpful and effective. I believe everyone can make choices about how they want to live and work and I invite people to look at their circumstances and relationships from new perspectives and to try out changes and improvements. My coaching work aims to support and empower people to make positive and effective career and lifestyle choices and help them identify and work towards achieving valued goals.

I work within the code of ethics and professional practice of the British Psychological Society and I offer up to date and comprehensive knowledge of the fields of counselling, psychotherapy, coaching and psychology using approaches and methods which have a sound research and clinical evidence base. I use several therapeutic models including: Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Solution Focussed and Systemic Therapy and Personal Construct Psychotherapy.
