Karen Brown - BSc Hons Psychology and Counselling - Registered Member BACP
When you are experiencing thoughts and feelings that you are not able to process alone, counselling can be a way of making sense of them and helping you to move forward with your life.
I have a genuine and warm character and real desire to help you. Whatever your issue, a long term problem, an immediate crisis or if you are just feeling stuck. I am able to offer you a calm space where you have the opportunity to explore what has prompted you to seek counselling.
I hold clinics in Crawley and Caterham, both locations are close to transport links and have free parking.
Please see testimonials from clients at: www.counsellingkbrown.co.uk
Some of the areas of counselling clients come to see me about include: Trauma, Anxiety, Generalised Anxiety Disorder, Borderline Personality Disorder, Depression, Panic Disorder, Relationship Issues, Family Issues, Affairs and betrayals, Separation and Divorce, Addictions. Anger management, Low self Esteem, Self Harm, Bereavement, Eating Disorders, Addictions (please see full list below)
Many of my clients have benefited from MBSR (Mindful based stress reduction). I aim to help clients gain a healthy work/life balance and offer exam stress relief techniques to students. At the end of our sessions you will have a 'tool box' to take with you as you continue your journey.
I am experienced in working with both one to one and couples counselling. I will work with you in an Integrative/Holistic way. Drawing from different models of therapy allows me to tailor each session to your particular needs. Sessions can be long term/short term/time bonded.
I have worked with young people in an educational setting for over 10 years and have volunteered with a charity that offered counselling to young people age between 14 - 25. I also have experience of working with children and young people who have emotional and behavioural difficulties. I have also volunteered with a cancer charity supporting both those with a diagnosis of cancer and their families.
