Karen Foran, M.Sc Counselling & Psychotherapy, M.Sc. Psychology, PG Cert CBT
Hi, I'm Karen I am a qualified counsellor and Registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP) working with Adults and Young People in the Altrincham area.
My approach is integrative, meaning I use different methods which are client led in a confidential, non-judgmental and safe environment. When we are faced with challenges in life the opportunity to discuss this with someone who will not judge you can be a positive choice.
My experience has enabled me to support you as you make sense of your thoughts, feelings and behaviours, so you don’t feel that you have to do this alone. Together we can identify what might be stopping you from reaching your full potential.
I will endeavour to help and support you gain some clarity with how and why you are feeling the way you are, and work with you to help you feel that sense of self again. I am a firm believer that having some knowledge and perspective on why we feel the way we do can be very powerful in the healing process.
