Karen McIlvenna BSc(Hons)Psych.PGDipCT
I establishedmy private practice, in 2010 and I am pleased to say it is quickly gaining an excellent reputation for effective and friendly psychotherapy.
I work with a wide range of issues, from clinical disorders to general life issues.
I have been involved in the field of emotional health for many years, as both a therapist and also as a Samaritan volunteer since 1998.
The first introductory session is free of charge without obligation.
The cost of a 50 minute session is £40, alternatively there is a discount available for block bookings of six sessions at £200 - 6 sessions for the price of 5. (discounted rate requires payment in full and is non refundable).
For student counsellors/therapists who must attend personal counselling as a requirement of their course, I offer a reduced rate of £30 per session.
I am also available for group work in the areas of Self Esteem and Stress Management using CBT techniques - if your group/organisation would like group work or a course on another topic, please feel free to contact me.
