About me

Welcome I'm Karen. Most people experience fear, anxiety, sadness, depression or uncertainty at some point in their lives; troublesome thoughts and feelings can become overwhelming or cause other difficulties. Counselling can help you begin to tolerate, accept, make personal change or achieve growth yourself.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have been counselling in Perth and Dunfermline since 2014.

My training as a counsellor is added to over 10 years' experience meeting the needs of  young people and their caregivers by providing and co-ordinating multi-agency support  relating to learning, behaviour, emotional and mental health. I am interested in counselling for any family, childhood, effects of childhood and relationship matters.

My corporate experience spans employment in a number of sectors of the economy, in the UK and abroad. I also have an interest in working with clients who encounter workplace relational difficulties and stress.
