Karen Cotterill Dip. Integrative Counselling MBACP
10 Radford Crescent
If you feel unable to cope, Counselling could help you.
I work relationally, in a non-directive, non-judgemental way, giving you time and space to reflect upon how you relate to and cope in your world. In a safe, secure and confidential environment, we work together to explore your predicament to gain a greater understanding and awareness of how this is affecting your life; this could be something from your past, something that is influencing you now, or your anticipation of future events. By accomplishing this insight we can begin to seek a solution as you are encouraged to take responsibility for your own choices, decisions and actions. When the spoken word is hard to find, we can work creatively.
Integrative counselling offers a flexibility and scope where I am able to combine elements from different therapeutic approaches rather than be restricted to one specific method, which can at times be limiting. This allows me to work with you in a way that best suits your needs.
I offer an assessment session, which allows us to meet each other, go through some practicalities and begin to consider the issues that are troubling you. Weekly sessions are then offered should we wish to continue our work together. Please see more details under fees section.
