Karen Collins MA, MBACP(Snr.Accred) Counsellor & Supervisor, BSc. Hons (psych)
07970 690324 / 07970 690324
I am an experienced, senior accredited counsellor/psychotherapist and senior accredited supervisor, who offers a non-judgemental approach to counselling. I genuinely believe that no problem is too big or too small. If it is causing you distress, then it is important to me. I use an integrative approach and believe there is always an alternative solution to a problem. As a counsellor I believe in a collaborative approach, with clients setting their own agenda and deciding what they want to work on. I believe you always have a choice and I will offer you a supportive and understanding space to explore what those choices may be.
I offer a safe and confidential counselling service in a dedicated therapy room, located in a discrete area, with parking facilities.
I have 14 + years experience in short term therapy; within GP practice, for large companies and within private practice. I have experience in longer term therapy; within secondary care for the NHS and private practice. I have experience as a counselling lecturer and offer CPD training. I am also a senior accredited clinical supervisor.
