Karen Brown - BSc (Hons) Integrative Counselling Registered Member BACP
'Life' can be difficult and whatever resonates with you, a long term problem, an immediate crisis or if you are just feeling stuck. I am able to offer you a calm space where you have the opportunity to explore what has prompted you to seek counselling.
I practice in an holistic way and approach you as a whole to help you to regain a balance in both mind and body. I offer counselling walking amongst nature, clients often find being outside during therapy to be very calming.
Some of the areas of counselling people come to see me about include: Anxiety, Generalised Anxiety Disorder, Depression, Panic Disorder, Relationship Issues, Feeling sad, Family Issues, Affairs and betrayals, Separation and Divorce, Addictions. Anger management, Low self Esteem, Bereavement, Eating Disorders (please see full list below)
Many of my clients have benefited from MBSR (Mindful based stress reduction). I aim to help clients gain a healthy work/life balance and teach exam stress relief techniques.
Whether you wish, one to one, face to face or online counselling, (couples counselling is face to face only). I will work with you in an Integrative/holistic way which allows me to tailor the sessions to your needs. Sessions can be long term or short term/time bonded.
I have experience of working with young people and have volunteered with a charity that offered counselling to young people age between 14 - 25. I have also worked with a cancer charity supporting both those with a diagnosis of cancer and their families.
I am a registered member of the BACP and adhere to their ethical guidelines.
