About me and my therapy practice
Hi, my name is Karen Cromwell and I am a qualified counsellor with 30 years experience in private practice and 13 years in NHS. I am a registered member of the BACP.
During my 4 year training, I studied a variety of therapeutic approaches, including person-centred, CBT and solution focused; which enables me to work in the best way for you, depending on your goals. I have a particular interest in helping clients understand the connection between the body and the mind, and I am passionate about supporting people in the practical application of stress management skills.
With a warm and very personal approach, my intent is to help you see where you have choices in your life, and to help you develop the inner resources to deal with any problems or feelings whatever the cause. As your counsellor, I am committed to offering you support, honesty and respect, in a safe, confidential environment; and within that atmosphere you have the opportunity to talk and be heard. I also have a strong commitment to my own ongoing personal development, and I am enthusiastic about sharing my experience and understanding with kindness, and without judgement.
Counselling sessions with me last one hour, and cost £55. Reduced rates are available if necessary.
I offer counselling in 3 different ways:
- Face to face with increased protection for Covid
- Online via Zoom or Teams
- Outdoors in nature - walk and talk
My first session
The first session is an opportunity to find out what you need and to see if you feel comfortable talking to me. If you decide to continue, we can explore your reasons for coming, and perhaps identify some goals, which helps to set the focus for our time together.
