About me and my therapy practice
A warm welcome. I’m Karen, a qualified counsellor who understands that life can be challenging and that it often takes courage to ask for help. I offer an empathic and confidential space for us to explore together the difficulties you are facing.
As the client, you are the heart of our work and the expert in your life. My role is to help you explore your thoughts and feelings without judgement, in order to help you gain a better understanding of yourself and your situation and so move forward.
My work with adult clients focuses on a range of issues, both short and long-term, including bereavement and loss, loneliness and isolation, work and life stress, family and relationship difficulties and low self-esteem.
I also work as a counselling volunteer with two agencies - Rennie Grove Hospice and The Road Victims Trust. The former work includes supporting end-of-life patients, carers and clients on a curative pathway. The latter role involves supporting victims and their families of serious road traffic collisions including drivers, witnesses and bereaved relatives.
I look forward to supporting you. Karen
I offer short and long-term weekly or fortnightly sessions. These currently take place online or by telephone. I will return to face-to-face counselling when appropriate.
I am also able to offer walk-and-talk therapy having completed training in this area. It is an alternative to working in a traditional therapy room and we would literally walk and talk outdoors in the natural environment. This is subject to it being appropriate for you, and would be discussed properly during the initial assessment session.
My first session
I offer a free 20 minute phone consultation for you to tell me a little about yourself and what you would like help with. You can also ask me any questions about counselling and the way I work. If you would like to proceed we will then arrange an initial first session. Prior to this I will send you some information about how we might work together and arrange a mutually agreeable day and time for this to happen.
