About me and my therapy practice
Do you need a safe confidential place to speak openly, with someone neutral and non-judgemental? You may be looking to make some changes to your life, or have a dilemma to talk through. Maybe you've lost someone close, feel isolated or stressed, or have a problem that's preventing you from moving forward. I'm about empathy - seeing things from your viewpoint - and working to build a trusting therapeutic relationship where you feel comfortable enough to be yourself. I'm quite interactive, so you'll get much more than 'hmms' and 'uh-huhs'.
Working in a person-centred way means listening, understanding and believing. Rather than giving advice or opinions, it's about exploring options together so that you can make your own decisions. This can help with increasing confidence and self-esteem, by learning to trust your own judgement. I always promote self-care to help increase self-worth. We will work at your pace, and you choose the focus of the session. My aim is to help you live your best life!
I have 'broad shoulders', am not easily shocked, and never judge whatever clients choose to share with me. Sometimes people are fearful of speaking about their feelings or showing emotion. Please be reassured that this is a normal part of the therapy and healing process, and will be welcomed sensitively.
I practice from a lovely, welcoming counselling centre in Bridgend town centre, and offer telephone counselling to existing clients. Call, text or WhatsApp me, search Facebook @karencounselling121 or see my website www.karencounselling.co.uk
My response time is fast - usually within a couple of hours between 8am and 8pm - so please be reassured that I will get back to you asap.
