About me

In 2007 Carolyn began volunteering in the community, working for Victim Support N.I. providing emotional support to victims of both low level and the most serious of crimes. At the same time she was volunteering with Women’s Aid running the Reconnect project and co-facilitating new worker and volunteer induction training along-side the volunteer coordinator. She was also supporting women through their journeys with Women's Aid, providing emotional support.

In 2010 she qualified as an integrative counsellor and worked mainly between the 2 communities across North and West Belfast, where she assisted in the setting up and running of a weekend suicide intervention service.

In to 2016 she completed her Bsc. Hons in Professional Development in Counselling and the CPCAB level 6 in therapeutic supervision. She have also gone on to specialise in several areas, eating disorders, obesity management, trauma, anger management and a few other areas include the energy therapy EFT which is invaluable to her work in the community, where the organisation she founded provides therapeutic support to families.

In April 2017, Carolyn founded A Safe Space to Be me which is a registered charity providing community support to the towns of Antrim and Crumlin. The organisation has a small team of volunteers who provide counselling, life coaching and training within the community to both professionals and members of the public.

At the beginning of August 2017 she was awarded Senior Accredited Counsellor status with the National Counselling Society to become one of not only the few, in N.Ireland but one of the youngest practitioners to have reached this level.

As a practitioner Carolyn works from an integrative model which allows her to tailor counselling and therapy to the needs of the individuals she is working with. A one size all approach is definitely not the way forward.
