Karen Christie, FdSc (Couns), Registered member of BACP
Are you feeling anxious, depressed or finding life hard to manage? If you're going through a difficult time and looking for help, you are welcome to contact me.
Counselling offers you a confidential place to explore feelings without any pressure or judgement. This process can help reduce confusion and help make life more manageable.
I am an experienced, qualified and Integrative Counsellor, which means I work with different theoretical concepts and models depending on my clients’ needs and ways of experiencing. My core style is Person Centred which means I truly believe that we all have sufficient resources within us to lead fulfilling lives regardless of experiences. I provide a safe, quiet and confidential space for you to talk and think about what feels difficult for you. Some of the most common issues I'm used to working with are anxiety, depression, relationship issues (past or current), bereavement, anger, guilt, shame, trauma and suicide. Whatever your reason is for seeking therapy, simply talking can be tremendously helpful.
You can make an initial consultation with no obligation. If you want to go ahead from there, sessions will be held weekly on the same day and time. I provide short or long term counselling.
I am committed to my own personal and professional development. I do this by attending regular workshops, training and seminars. I also participate in monthly supervision.
