About me

Covid-19 Update – I am currently offering sessions online, please contact me for more details about arranging sessions during this time.

Hello, my name is Karen Baillie and I am a UKCP registered psychotherapist based in Isleworth, London, TW7. I have been in private practice since 1994, offering counselling, psychotherapy and supervision. I also work with counsellors and psychotherapists in training at Diploma and MA Level.

My therapeutic approach is integrative and I draw on Psychosynthesis, Jungian, humanistic and psychodynamic perspectives in my work. I provide a confidential, safe and non-judgemental space where you can explore and resolve the issues or concerns in your life.

People come into counselling and therapy for a variety of reasons and I can offer both short term and longer term work depending on what you want and on the issues that we are working with.

If you are interested in counselling or psychotherapy, the first step is to call me on 020 8560-3707, to make an appointment for an Initial Assessment Meeting. This meeting is for you to tell me about yourself, the issues that you might want to focus on and to ask any further questions you may have of me. If after that meeting we decide to work together, I ask for an initial commitment to 6 sessions. In the 6th session we would review the work together and decide whether to complete at that point or continue in ongoing counselling or psychotherapy.

Sessions last for one hour and usually take place on a weekly basis.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

UKCP

UK Council for Psychotherapy

The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) is a leading professional body for the education, training and regulation of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors. Its register is accredited by the government's Professional Standards Authority.

As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.

UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

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.

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.
