Karen Brown Psychotherapy and Counselling Service BSc Hons - Reg MBACP
I offer Psychotherapy, counselling, incorporating mindfulness and meditation
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.
See my reviews on Google maps and on my website. www.counsellingkbrown.co.uk
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 Hove, both locations are close to transport links and my Crawley practice has free on street parking. The Hove practice is close to on street meter parking
Some of the areas of counselling clients come to see me about include: Trauma, Anxiety, Generalised Anxiety Disorder, Depression, Disassociation, Panic Disorder, Relationship Issues, Affairs and betrayals, Addictions. Anger management, Low self Esteem, Self Harm, Bereavement, Eating Disorders, (please see full list below)
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 through life
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.
Please advise at the time of making an appointment of any medications that you are currently taking
