My name is Carine Biessels and I practice as Biographical Counsellor in Forest Row and Lewes.
In counselling you can find objective extra support outside of the immediate circle of friends and family. Free from any obligations counselling is a warm and confidential space in a non judgemental environment. A counsellor is trained to give extra support to people who are facing difficult life circumstances such as anxiety, depression or bereavement.
Biographical counselling is also a very effective way to work with a personal coach on an area in your life that you would like to give extra attention. Such as changing your career, fulfilling a dream or improving your relationships for example. Biographical Counselling is a counselling method that combines modern research in counselling with holistic human principles (Anthroposophy). The method is recognised by the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy BACP.
Next to individual work I also work with groups, offering workshops and courses. Please feel welcome to explore this website or to contact
me for more information.
Warm wishes, Carine
When the sun is shining
and all is going well,
I can travel great distances
and reach many happy destinations.
I feel appreciated and respected
among many other equal human beings.
But in times of shadow
it is another story.
Life can feel cold,
as if I am not welcome
or not good enough,
and that gift I have inside,
the gift of being me,
slowly gets forgotten.
Sometimes I just need someone,
who helps me to remember
how precious I am,
how rich and valuable are my resources,
my love and my humour,
and then I can find myself again.
