Karen Dibbens BSc (Hons) Dip Couns. MBACP
Please note - at present due to the COVID-19 situation I am only able to undertake video link counselling or phone Counselling.
I offer a warm, safe and confidential space for you to be listened to.
I work at your pace helping you to explore what you really want both from the counselling therapy and then concentrating more specifically on areas in your life/relationships you'd like to change or improve.
If you have problems that keep going around and around in your head. If you are unhappy and can't identify why. If you are really struggling to cope with life :-
Counselling can offer an amazingly good emotional release, offering you the comfort of feeling truly listened to. I will endeavour to offer empathy and be completely non-judgemental of whatever information you bring to the session.

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.
