“Working with Carole has been a wonderful experience; our work together has resulted in significant positive changes in my life which have brought me a lot of joy. It has also released a lot of hurt which has been with me for a long time. She creates a safe space where I feel comfortable discussing anything and never feel judged. She always acts with compassion and kindness, but also knows when to be firm with me! She has many tools in her toolbox so whatever comes up she has the ability to draw upon her experience and be flexible in her approach to each session. I would absolutely recommend working with Carole, anyone who can get me to open up, and laugh in amongst the tears, is worth their weight in gold!”
“I have found Carole excellent in our therapy sessions. We were able to identify that the physical pain I have is mainly emotional in nature and work on what is needed to help release this and implement techniques to help with emotions in general, including journaling, a focus on body sensations, breath and self soothing and care.
In a short space of time I have managed to set some well needed boundaries in my family and personal life. Carole was able to help me understand and identify dysfunctional family patterns and help coach me to stand firm in changing these patterns by changing how I respond. Carole has been helping me to identify my strengths and we are working on slow transformation so that I start to integrate what I am learning with her into more positive life changes.
Carole is intuitive and able to see a bigger picture, she has very good listening and reflection skills, offers some helpful holistic tools for me to draw on and has a lovely caring nature. It is very reassuring that Carole offers support if needed in between therapy sessions. I would highly recommend Carole to help if you are in physical or emotional pain, feel stuck or want to make positive changes in your life.”
“I began seeing Carole when I was in a really bad place. My pain symptoms were debilitating and I had no hope. My anxiety and depression was also quite awful and I couldn’t function in my job or in life.
Carole has been a support to me throughout this journey- and I have much better control over my symptoms and I have seen about a 40% reduction in my pain. The impatient side of me wants to see more, and I will get there! But in the waiting, I enjoy the “now” and Carole is with me. She is always available! I have rediscovered my zest for life again and my mind, body and spirit has found better balance. Carole is also giving me the confidence to pursue my dreams. Book in with Carole today- you won’t look back!”
Honestly, I don’t know what I would do without Carole Randell. I have been sick a really long time, pretty much since the age of 19. I didn’t see it for what it was and now I’m 52.
It all started with chronic fatigue and headaches 24 seven. The chronic fatigue over three years gradually got worse to the point I was sleeping 22 hours a day. I actually had to be woken up for food and drinks. After seeing over twenty medical doctors, Neurologists, Psychologists, Psychiatrists, and Western medicine not helping, I then tried at different times, four Naturopathic (whole health practitioners) and three nutritionists. After spending thousands and thousands of dollars for appointments, supplements, medicine and nutritional support; and still not finding the relief I needed. (If you’ve ever been put on a mix of depression medicine, omeperazole, gabapentin and the like and all that fails, it’s time to do something different.). I knew there had to be another part of me that had to be addressed but I couldn’t put my finger on it or find the right person to help me.
Until I found Carole!
Carole understands!! Finally someone gets me and my depression and the pain and fatigue. Carole’s been there, done that and worn the t-shirt. Carole has such laser vision and quickly knows the questions to ask you to help you think and re-think and maybe dig a little or a lot. Carole has helped me see things differently, question myself differently all without any JUDGEMENT! I think I have felt judged and unheard most if not all of my life. Carole helped me realise that, and then has helped guide me into living a more calm, self accepting life. If you have been labeled or diagnosed of having Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, ME, Fibromyalgia or having Chronic Unresolved Pain throughout your body; do it for YOU! And reach out to Carol, I promise you will not regret it. If you’ve been searching a long time and feel in your heart of hearts there must be an answer and that you know your life wasn’t meant to be like this, reach out to Carole. I have made leaps and bounds in less than seven months and it's all because I felt very safe to be vulnerable with Carole, which is huge in this process of recovery. Carole will help you walk in the right direction. I just love her.
"Carole is a very genuine and warm person with a great sense of humour. Gave me many tips, advice and tools to help me deal with my chronic back pain. Definitely made me think outside the box! What's more, Carole got straight into the cause of my back pain - emotional stress. This is something I had suspected for years. It was Carole who finally made me realise the truth of my situation. I would definitely recommend Carole as a person to help you on your path to pain recovery."

I found Carole to be a warm and empathetic therapist. I always felt heard and validated. She has a real gift for seeing beyond what is shared, to the underlying issues, helping me to see things from a new perspective. I now feel much more able to take care of myself and realise my needs are just as important as everyone else's and to make them more of a priority. This was a whole new concept for me and one I intend to continue working on. Thank you Carole.

"Carole is an extremely caring therapist who provides highly accurate insight for her clients. Her understanding of Tension Myositis Syndrome coupled with her intuition and empathy, make her someone who can provide invaluable help along the road to recovery for those suffering from chronic pain. I very much valued the sessions that I had with Carole and felt that she helped me with her calm understanding and compassionate presence. I would recommend her to anyone struggling with pain and trying to make sense of it in their lives and in their steps to overcome it. Seeing Carole is a great investment in your own recovery."

During a particularly difficult time, Carole helped me separate reality from the confusing and depressing thoughts constantly running around my head. She helped me gain insights into who I was and what I really needed and how to cope with the maelstrom of events in my life. Carole is a warm, engaging and thoughtful listener and really seemed to understand me and I would thoroughly recommend her to anyone who needs similar guidance.
