Caroline Tresman, MSc, MBACP

Counsellor and Psychotherapist

I am an MSc qualified counsellor with experience of working with many people both in person and online. I have an additional tool of EFT, or Emotional Freedom Technique including Matrix Reimprinting, which helps when dealing with overwhelming feelings and can even re-program unhelpful memories or beliefs. I have used this tool to great success with very many people and it complements the counselling.

I am a person-centred counsellor at heart which means we go where you want when you are ready, but with my gentleness I am also bold and fearless so you can bring me your darkest thoughts, feelings and experiences and I will hear them with you and help you work through them.

I like to help my clients get tangible results fairly quickly, so it is not unusual for some clients to only need surprisingly few sessions and others to need more. It is up to you. I am currently doing a Counselling Doctorate with a view to research around the use of EFT and counselling.

You can have sessions with me in Alsager, Cheshire, or online.

I have visited Caroline for several sessions of EFT. Although I initially felt sceptical and slightly nervous about the process, Caroline quickly put me at ease and explained what was going to happen. She told me I was in control at all times and she would stop if I needed her to.


I spoke to Caroline about my mum’s sudden death, and how difficult I had found it to cope with. We had a short chat, and Caroline identified a way EFT could help me deal with the strong emotions I felt about this event. The tapping was easy to follow. Caroline was very supportive throughout, and asked me several times if I was okay to continue. After the EFT I felt more able to think about my mum without feeling overwhelmed with emotion.

Professional Experience

  • EFT trained since 2016 I have worked with many clients with a wide range of issues
  • Matrix Reimprinting trained since 2017 and working with clients to relieve the impact of painful memories
  • As a counsellor I have extensive experience of working remotely and in person with many hundreds of hours of experience
  • I agree and abide by the BACP guidelines
  • I have regular supervision to constantly develop my professional work
  • Clients have been of all ages and genders and sexualities. As a counsellor I prefer not to use medical labels because I feel they can be limiting (although they are useful at times). In a similar way, I prefer to not stereotype anyone by how they look or present, even though human nature wants us to make those shortcuts.
  • Currently upskilling to work more with children
  • I have had a number of careers and work experiences which gives me a wide range of experience of different lives. My life experiences have included living in other countries as a child; and as an adult being homeless and a single parent.

The counselling was very valuable to me, I feel that I actually learned a lot about myself and my own behaviours & thought patterns through discussing these with Caroline. ... Caroline was supportive and easy to talk to ..
