About me and my therapy practiceHi, I'm Karen I am a qualified psychotherapist and a certified CBT therapist working with Adults, Couples & Young People in the Altrincham area. My approach is integrative, meaning I use different counselling methods which are client led in a confidential, non-judgmental and safe environment. When we are faced with challenges in our life the opportunity to discuss this with someone impartial who will not judge you, can be a positive choice. My experience enables me to support you to make sense of your thoughts, feelings and behaviours. Together we can identify what might be stopping you from reaching your full potential.
I have experience of working with a wide range of difficulties such as anxiety disorders, depression, stress, abuse, trauma, low self-esteem, anger, & self-harm. I also offer couples counselling for relationship difficulties & differences. Currently I work as a specialist senior counsellor within the NHS with survivors of sexual abuse and trauma.
I will endeavour to help and support you gain some clarity with how and why you are feeling the way you are, and work with you to help you feel that sense of self again. I am a firm believer that having some knowledge and perspective on why we feel the way we do can be very powerful in the healing process.
My first sessionI understand it is important for you to find the right counsellor, therefore, I offer an initial free telephone consultation so that we can explore what is going on for you and also to have an opportunity for you to see how I work and if we could work together
