Karen Campbell (MSc Counselling and Psychotherapy, MBACP)
Hi, I’m Karen and 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 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.
What counselling can do
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.
Together we can work out what you would like to achieve from counselling. You are in control of what you talk about. I will support you to explore what is troubling you and help you come to a different perspective.
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.
How to get in touch
The next step of contacting a counsellor may seem daunting. If you have any questions regarding counselling or wish to arrange an initial appointment, I am happy to be contacted by phone, text or email, whichever you prefer.
If you call and I am not available to answer please leave a message and I will 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.
