Carolin Williamson
Integrative psychotherapist
Carolin Williamson

Carolin works as integrative psychotherapist on the addiction treatment programme at the Manor Ward, Priory Hospital Woodbourne in Birmingham. In addition to delivering a variety of therapeutic groups for inpatients, she specialises in the family support element of the programme.

Carolin first joined the Priory as an addiction therapist at Priory Hospital Nottingham in 2013, working on a specialist team for the dedicated addiction treatment ward. She has since worked in various settings and roles across sites, providing therapeutic groups and skills training on both child and adolescent mental health services (CAMHS) and eating disorder wards, managing the addiction treatment programme at Priory Hospital Woodbourne and working at the wellbeing centre. Carolin has longstanding experience in working with outpatients with a variety of presenting issues, including substance and process addictions, trauma, loss and bereavement, anxiety, low self-esteem, emotionally unstable personality disorder (EUPD), and others. She also provides couples therapy for those whose relationship has been affected by addictions.

Being an integrative therapist, Carolin uses a variety of different approaches to meet each client where they are at on their personal journey. Carolin’s work is founded in attachment theory, with a person-centred core. She integrates elements of Gestalt therapy, dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT), cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), as well as creative work, drawing on her experience in art therapy.

Having each individual’s recovery journey at the heart of her work, Carolin believes that building strong therapeutic relationships is key to successful therapy. 

Training

Carolin trained as an art therapist at the Academy of Fine Arts Dresden, Germany. She graduated in 2010 with a German Post-Graduate Diploma (MA equivalent).

In 2014, Carolin earned a distinction when completing her Masters of Science in Integrative Psychotherapy & Counselling at Derby University.

Carolin is an accredited member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).

Throughout her career, Carolin has had a great interest in learning and understanding addiction, dedicating both of her Masters theses to this topic, and attending addiction conferences (UKESAD), as well as engaging in further specific training since, like behaviour couples therapy for addictions (BCT-AD), co-dependency and others.

She has engaged in ongoing professional development and further training beyond this topic (with an interest in trauma, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), autism, highly sensitive people, shame and vulnerability) and broadened her skills set in a variety of approaches. These include DBT training, chair work, action methods in Gestalt therapy and motivational interviewing.
