Karen Cook BACP Senior Accredited Counsellor/Psychotherapist
Hello and thanks for taking a look at my profile. I've spent the past fifteen years counselling in private practice, at an NHS hospice and in the charitable sector, and now work in private practice only, in Stapleford (between Nottingham and Derby).
I am also a qualified supervisor, and for both counselling and supervision, am able to offer evening as well as daytime appointments. My practice is easily accessible by public transport or, if you are driving, there is ample on-street parking.
For detailed information about my counselling practice, I would encourage you to visit my website which I hope will give you all the information you need to make an informed decision about whether or not you wish to contact me.
Training, qualifications & experience
It was during my 30s and whilst living in Cambridge that I decided to train as a Psychodynamic Psychotherapist and over the years since qualifying, have integrated elements of other models in to my way of working such that I can offer my clients the most appropriate form of counselling for their needs.
I started counselling at Arthur Rank House Hospice in Cambridge and in private practice, and then in 2003 moved to Nottingham to take up a post at Treetops Hospice in Risley, Derbyshire, as their bereavement counsellor. Over the years since moving to the Midlands, I increasingly worked with private clients at my practice in Stapleford, presenting with very wide-ranging issues, and am now concentrating solely on this work having left the hospice in March 2013.
