About me

Hi I'm Karen

I believe that providing I am not wasting your valuable time and money during sessions, it could be helpful for you to know a little about me before making an appointment.

Prior to becoming a qualified Counsellor I trained as a hypnotherapist and NLP practitioner. I have spent over 25 years in both educational settings and the NHS. I have utilised therapy myself in previous years for things such as post-natal depression, work-related anxiety and empty nest syndrome and I found the experiences positive and immensely invaluable.

Life can be unpredictable and some experiences can cause reactions we don’t fully understand. Counselling can help gain relief and clarity, helping you to find a healthier way forward. Hearing your thoughts and feelings out loud, in the presence of a trained professional can bring about shifts in awareness and perception. Facing your concerns or fears can feel empowering, helping you to feel more in control. My aim is to provide a warm, welcoming safe environment where together we can explore any worries, problems or issues that are causing you any distress, sadness or anxiety.

With counselling you will gain an understanding of why you are feeling the way you are, working together on an equal level we can find a healthier way forward. I understand that revealing your thoughts and feelings to a stranger is not always easy.  As a trained counsellor I am able to provide to you a confidential, non-judgemental and empathic environment where trust can be built, allowing exploration to flow naturally when the time is right for you. I will support you and encourage you throughout.

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

Accredited register membership

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.

Other areas of counselling I deal with

Eco therapy- Walks in Nature:  I can also offer socially distanced face to face sessions either walking in nature or seated in a quiet area also in nature.  It has been extensively proven that nature is beneficial to therapy and our overall wellbeing.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
