About me

My name is Karen and I have been working as a Cognitive Behaviour Therapist for the last 5 years. I have over 20 years experience of working within various mental health settings and have an acute understanding of how distressing it can be to cope with various psychological difficulties. I have a compassionate approach to dealing with issues and my working environment ensures my clients feel safe and at ease to explore their difficulties.

I have experience of working with clients from age 13 and above and predominantly deal with issues around depression and anxiety disorders such as ; Social Phobia, agoraphobia, Panic, OCD, Trauma, Health Anxiety and General Anxiety. In addition part of my work focuses on relationship difficulties and low self esteem issues. I am also qualified to provide supervision to students undertaking a PG Dip in CBT or for those wishing to undertake private supervision.

I can be flexible to meet the needs of the client and will work evenings and weekends to accommodate your needs. I appreciate it can be a difficult decision to commit to therapy so please feel free to contact me to discuss any queries you have.
