About me and my therapy practice

I trained as a Person Centred Counsellor in 2008 and have worked in a variety of settings, working as professional Counsellor. I am able  to offer a safe non-judgemental environment, in which clients can explore their world. I seek to work with people who feel disconnected from society. As the counsellor, I am the facilitator of your journey aiming to understand your world with more clarity  from your frame of reference. Also to be able to walk along side you. I would encourage you to think of this unique time together as your time . Sometimes in our lives we all struggle to make sense of our world and our place in it. I am here to empower you to look more in depth at your personal boundaries and relationships, and to promote how transformative the counselling process can be. 

Practice description

Welcome my name is Karen. I am currently working online and provide a professional and safe service, in which you can feel at ease and be assured your personal data and confidentiality will be safe guarded. I am currently using Zoom Meetings, that has client to counsellor secure encryption, which complies with the DPA (Data Protection Act) requirements and the BACP Code of Ethics . I will be warm and welcoming to you and create an atmosphere in which you can explore your thoughts and feelings and seek to understand in more detail, your relationships with the significant people in your life. 

My first session

In the first session with you I would like to gain a brief understanding of the reasons you have sought counselling, by asking what your expectations of the counselling process are and how you  feel I as the counsellor can help you. We will get to know each other in the first session. We will discuss the contract and confidentiality requirements. I will try to get a better understanding of your reasons for seeking counselling and give a description of how I work. I will ask about any goals you would like to meet , but you maybe unsure of your reasons for seeking counselling and that's ok as well. Your first session will last one hour.
