Karen Hogg MBACP Accred
Counselling offers a private time to explore issues that are concerning you. I aim to offer a comfortable and safe setting and support you to consider alternative ways of managing the situations that are bothering you.
I have been working as a counsellor for over 25 years and began my private practice at home 20 years ago.
I offer individual counselling for people over 18.This year I have received requests for counselling from individuals for anger management, anxiety, depression, grief and loss, life choices and from young people considering their direction in life.
I receive referrals from local GPs, employment counselling schemes eg AXA and insurance companies whose clients have private health cover eg BUPA.
I used to work with troubled families and young people for a local council. I am a trained teacher so appreciate the educational issues that arise for parents during these years.
Our first meeting would involve a discussion about your concerns and all being well we would arrange an agreed number of sessions planning to review regularly.
I am happy to talk on the phone and answer any queries before making an appointment if that is useful to you. Please call or email me whichever you prefer.
