Karen Green Adv Dip Couns, Reg.MBACP, ACC
Are you overwhelmed? Worried? Depressed? Struggling with relationships? Counselling can help. I am a skilled and compassionate counsellor providing individual and couples therapy in Wells, Somerset and also central Exeter. I offer a safe and confidential space where you can come and make sense of what's troubling you or causing you pain.
People seek counselling for a number of reasons - often they are anxious, down, and struggling to keep going on some days. These people can find counselling helps them get back on track so that they function 'normally' again. For others, life just seems so much harder than it needs to be and they seek counselling to understand why that is and change it. Very often, people are weighed down by the 'baggage' of their past and they come to counselling to free themselves up from this. Others seek counselling because they want to develop themselves into a better person.
Whatever your reason for considering counselling, I offer a counselling approach which is tailored to suit you. I offer a non-judgemental and respectful space to talk and I believe no issue is too small or trivial for counselling.
I am an Integrative Counsellor, which means I work with a variety of different approaches depending on what's needed. I draw from Humanistic/Person-centred, Gestalt, CBT and Transactional Analysis approaches. I also offer in depth inner child work.
Many clients find that talking through their issues is enough to help them make sense of it all, look at it from a different angle and find ways of bringing life back into balance again. If you want something different from just talking, then I offer other, creative and imaginative ways of working which are aimed at helping you to express yourself and unlock insights into what's going wrong for you. These include guided visualisation, roleplaying, drawing and painting, sandplay and working with models.
Couples often struggle with communication issues. It may be that one, or both parties just doesn't feel listened to by the other, or it may be that one, or both, finds it hard to express what they really mean. Counselling is very good at helping couples find better ways of communicating.
I work with couples on a range of issues, including:
- sexual problems
- affairs and infidelity
I am a member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling & Phsychotherapy) and also the ACC (Association of Christian Counsellors).
