Karen Campbell Counselling (MSc and MBACP registered)
Hi, I’m Karen. If you are struggling with something difficult in your life such as anxiety, depression, bereavement, loss, grief, guilt, stress or relationship issues. I offer a safe and confidential space for you to explore your thoughts and feelings.
I am a qualified and experienced person-centred counsellor, having worked within a GP surgery and my private practice located in The Hub, Vicar Street, Falkirk which provides discrete access to my counselling service.
I will listen, offer support and understanding, whilst at the same time be accepting of your values, attitudes and life-style in a non-judgmental way in an environment that is safe and confidential.
I have experience of working with a wide range of client issues such as anxiety, depression, stress, illness, relationship and family issues, sexual identity, body image, bereavement and loss, post-natal depression and many others.
I work face-to-face, long and short-term with individuals from the age of 16 years. I also offer online one-to-one counselling via Skype or Zoom for clients who face challenges getting to my office in Falkirk due to their location or personal circumstances.
I offer daytime or evening appointments, normally available within 5 working days.
What counselling can do for you
Coming to counselling is about making a positive choice to seek help from someone who is not involved in any other aspect of your life. It isn’t always easy to talk to the people closest to you about what is troubling you. You may feel guilty about not coping or you may worry about upsetting or burdening others.
I will support you to talk about what’s troubling you to discover any root cause or identify ways of thinking that are stopping you moving forward in your life. I will work with you to explore ways of how to move forward, lessening your distress and taking a different perspective.
What people say about me
I often receive comments from clients such as I’m ‘easy to talk to’, they ‘don’t feel judged’, they feel ‘accepted’, and that I’m ‘caring’ and ‘warm’. I believe these comments show that my clients trust me with their most private thoughts and feelings.

How to get in touch with me
The next step of contacting a counsellor may seem daunting. If you have any questions regarding counselling or wish to arrange an appointment, I am happy to be contacted by phone, text or email, whichever you prefer.
If you call and I’m not available to answer please just leave a message and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can. Your message will only be heard by myself ensuring confidentiality from the outset.
Counselling appointments usually last an hour. This can be weekly or fortnightly whichever suits your circumstances. I also offer an initial half hour appointment which is an opportunity for you to give an overview of why you are seeking counselling and see how we could work together.
