Caroline's way of workingCaroline works in a compassionate and collaborative way with clients, drawing on elements from a number of different therapeutic approaches including Compassionate Inquiry, Mindfulness-Based Therapies; Coaching; and Psychodynamic Counselling to meet the needs and preferences of each individual.
