Karen Butterworth PG Dip Counselling & Psychotherapy, MBACP
I have extensive experience working for a local Bereavement charity and for the charity Mind. In private practice I work with a range of mental health and wellbeing issues including stress, depression, anxiety, Bereavement/loss, sexual orientation, anger etc.
I offer an initial introductory session for £10 which lasts for 30 minutes. The aim of this session is for me to understand your needs and to advise you of what I can offer and what you can expect. Also, because a large part of the success of therapeutic support relies on the relationship you develop with your therapist, it’s key for you to know whether I am the right choice for you.
You can book a session by telephone or via the website.
My work with clients offers a safe environment in which you can speak freely without fear of judgement and where you can work through any negative/difficult thoughts, behaviours or feelings without having to filter what you disclose. This is part of what makes therapy unique. Confidentiality is a key part of this process.
I work from a comfortable, private home location that has a separate entrance. Please visit my website for further information at www.crabtreecounselling.com
Telephone appointments are available if you have difficulty travelling and discounts are available for students. Please call for details and to arrange any appointments.

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.
