My name is Karen Aldridge, and I'm the founder and principal therapist at Time & Space, Longridge. Our aim is to provide our clients with the time and space they need to cope, change, accept and feel. To talk, and really be heard. To express emotion and feelings without fear or worry about acceptance or respect.
I have been a counsellor and mindfulness practitioner for over 20 years, and I believe wholeheartedly in the process. I never stop learning new ways of helping my clients because I know that everyone's needs are different. I will draw upon many different genres of counselling and other therapies to ensure that I provide an experience that works best for you.
During this period of isolation and Social Distancing,
I am offering both on line Video sessions and telephone sessions.
if you are affected financially, please speak to me about a range of concessions and payment options.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am qualified counsellor with a higher diploma in counselling, registered with the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP), and also have master practitioner qualifications and experience in Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), Mindfulness, Hypnotherapy and Reiki.
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.

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).
