Karen Haynes - Member of the BACP & NCS
I believe that each client requires an individual and tailored counselling approach.
I provide a professional and confidential counselling service in Leigh-on-Sea & Southend-on-Sea. I work in an integrative way, using Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, Transactional Analysis and Person Centred approaches. I think it is important to tailor my approach to the needs of the individual as I do not believe that one approach is appropriate for everyone.
I am experienced in working with children and teenagers as well as adults. Whether you need help to deal with anxiety, panic attacks, anger, low self-esteem or confidence. I also work with bereavement and loss, addiction, co-dependence, confidence, self esteem, domestic abuse, health anxiety, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and family or relationship problems.
I offer a mindfulness program if required and a range of alternative health coaching, I have a holistic approach to health.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) member Counsellor/Psychotherapist (www.bacp.co.uk). I work within the BACP’s Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy. I did not become a counsellor until I was in my early forties, having spent 20 years working in Banking and finance and the health industries. This means that I am able to bring a wealth of life experience to my counselling work, which I believe is very important for a counsellor. I currently have a private practice in Leigh-on-Sea and Southend-on-Sea in Essex and have experience working as a Counsellor in a Secondary School for children. I also have worked with ex-offenders and addicts with the 12 step program, I offer a mindfulness program if required and a range of alternative health coaching, I have a holistic approach to the mind and body.
