Caroline Weiland
Bereavement Counsellor
BSc, PGDip, (MBACP) (Accred), UKCP

Caroline has worked within the Imperial NHS Trust at St. Mary’s Hospital in Paddington since 2011. She deals with many different NHS patients at often the most difficult time of their lives whilst coping with traumatic loss of miscarriage and neonatal loss or even losing a child.

She works with women’s issues relating to their psychological and reproductive health, such as infertility, IVF and menopause. She is working on a research dissertation on how a woman makes meaning of a neonatal loss or stillbirth.

Caroline’s existential approach is grounded in building a trusting relationship enabling you and your partner to discuss together and share the issues that bring you both to therapy. There are many different possibilities and ways of living with limiting factors for us all that bring difficulties and hard choices.

Loss occurs in all phases of our lives and working therapeutically with losses is part of coping with life’s uncertainty over which we have no control. The benefit of therapy is an opportunity to acknowledge these limitations, find new possibilities and to clarify where you want to be.

Caroline works with individuals and couples and offer a warm and supportive environment where you can work together at your own pace. Caroline works confidentially within the BACP and UKCP guidelines.
