My name is Caroline and I have been working in the NHS since 1991. I have worked for DCPS since September 2017 and my role here is as a Psychological Therapist. I am a Cognitive Analytic Therapist (CAT) and I am trained in EMDR and Mindfulness (MBSR). I am passionate about helping people who are suffering with persistent pain to have a greater sense of wellbeing and live a valued and meaningful life in line with their values. I work with people on a one to one basis and also with people who are participants in the pain management programmes. I have a special interest in helping people with Fibromyalgia. I work as one of the lead facilitators on the Fibromyalgia Pain Management Programmes which we run as part of DPMS.

Would you like phone or online support from a Pain Chain Coach?
A Pain Chain Coach is somebody who has chronic pain and therefore understands the challenge of living with daily pain.
We are very sorry but due to unforeseen circumstances we are unable to offer any new pain coaches at the moment but will endeavour to get this back up and running as soon as possible.
