About me and my therapy practice

A young client once asked ‘how can you help me if you don’t know what life is like for me?’ what a wonderful question. The client had a good point, how could I help without knowing what life is like for them? This is the focus of my approach.

Counselling experience isn’t an ‘out of the box’ experience, it isn’t a case of just ‘topping up the fuel tank’ when we are running low. The end product might be similar, a sense of feeling refuelled and ready to hit the road again, but the experience is very different for each person. When I work with people the first few sessions are like a ‘getting to know you’ process, the focus is on understanding what life is like for this client. I try and see life from the client’s perspective in order to begin a process of understanding what life is like for the client.

Trained as an Integrative Counsellor, I work using Person Centred Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Transactional Analysis. In addition to this I’m also trained to deliver Therapy in Nature, which takes counselling out of the traditional counselling room and outdoors, here we can engage with nature while working therapeutically.

I have specific training and experience in bereavement counselling and additional training in working with trauma, depression, anxiety and victims of sexual abuse. In addition to my work with adults I currently work with young people at the charity 'Off the Record Twickenham'. I have experience of working with clients suffering from anxiety, depression, anger, low self-esteem, low self-confidence, ADHD, Sexual Abuse, Suicide Ideation and Self-Harm.

I am a Registered Member of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP), and currently working towards accreditation. I offer counselling and psychotherapy in London, either indoors within a counselling room or outdoors in nature. Feel free to contact me for more information: karl@reachforhelp.co.uk
