Individuals

Welcome! My name is Carena Rogers and I am a qualified Counsellor with a special interest in working with women of all ages, through the many changes that life brings.

Are you tired of pretending you’re OK? Or have the feeling that there must be more to life than this? Deep down you know that you want something different but somehow you can’t believe in yourself enough to work out what to do. It can be hard to take the next steps if imposter syndrome is affecting your career decisions when you are first starting out or looking for promotion.

Perhaps you are not sure whether your personal relationships are healthy and need space to explore what is right for you. Maybe menopause or other life changes are bringing feelings of anxiety and loss, with life feeling like it is changing and you are no longer in control. You might be so used to putting others first that it is difficult to hold on to your own self-worth and the value that you bring, leaving the future feeling uncertain. Add in experiences of sexism, micro-aggressions, abuse, and ageism, and your confidence can be knocked. It’s not much fun feeling anxious, depressed or stressed all the time.

Therapy can help when your future feels uncertain or you feel fearful of making changes. I would love to support you to find your way through your challenges, and to embrace your future with confidence. We can work together to help you grow around past hurts and difficulties, and to find a way to say ‘yes’ to what you want in life and to feel more comfortable saying ‘no’ when needed.

Alongside my private practice I am a Counsellor at the Maya Centre, specialising in working with women who have experienced domestic abuse, adverse childhood experiences, and difficult family relationships.

I also run psycho-educational groups focused on supporting wellbeing and understanding the effects of trauma on our bodies and sense of selves.

I understand that contacting a therapist can feel like a big step. People tell me I’m very easy to talk to. I will welcome you so you feel comfortable enough to trust me with your most difficult feelings.

If my page resonates with you, contact me to book a 15 minute consultation for you to get a feel for what it would be like to work with me. I work online or face to face so we can think about what would work best for you.

I offer both short and long term work.
My fees start at £65 for a 50 minute session.
