Hello, my name is Karen and I am a qualified person-centred counsellor. I offer therapy online or over the phone. You may have found yourself struggling with stress, anxiety or depression; no matter the situation, I am available to offer help and support.
I have supported many clients who have felt they cannot cope and move on from the past or felt weighed down with depression, coping with relationship breakdowns or past abuse.
You may be struggling with confidence and a loss of self esteem and want to regain that self-belief but life has got in the way and you wish to rebuild to the self you want to be.
You have taken that first step to read my profile and if these issues feel familiar to you and you want to regain some happiness again in your life, please reach out so we can start to work on them together.
Training, qualifications & experience
My many years of background in HR provided the opportunity to specialise in supporting those within the workplace who were struggling with their mental wellbeing. I was and have always been incredibly passionate about increasing awareness of mental health for managers and employees alike; this strongly motivated me to retrain as a counsellor.
Both before and during the pandemic, I have worked with a wide range of clients all with varying issues.

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.
College of Sexual and Relationship Therapists
COSCA is the professional body for counselling and psychotherapy in Scotland, and seeks to advance all forms of counselling and psychotherapy and the use of counselling skills by promoting best practice and through the delivery of a range of sustainable services. COSCA Counsellor Accreditation is a pathway to entry onto the UKRC.
It is a requirement of all individual and organisational members of COSCA to abide by its Statement of Ethics and Code of Practice and be accountable to the Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
