Karen Jones Adv Dip CP, Dip Hyp CS
Choosing the right counsellor for you is an important first step on the pathway to a happier future whether face to face sessions, online or telephone.
If you are feeling overwhelmed, sad, depressed, lost or confused, fed up and want to gain back control of your life, then you are ready for change, ready to become the happier person you deserve to be.
Whether working on a personal level, with family issues or work related stress, no problem is too small or too large.
Within my therapy sessions I offer warmth, understanding and non judgemental acceptance and support. I am a fully Qualified and Insured Advanced Counsellor/Psychotherapist, Hypnotherapist and Mindfulness Coach working from a peaceful centre in Barns Green, West Sussex and work with clients from surrounding areas including Southwater, Billingshurst, Crawley, Cowfold, Partridge Green, Storrington, and Redhill.
I offer an intergrated form of therapy, as we are all different and view the world in our own unique way. One therapy does not suit all so being trained in all the major theories enables me to pick and choose the right model or models to suit your individual needs. All therapy is individually tailored to fit each client. I am trained in Person Centred, Solution Focused Brief Therapy, Psychodynamic, Transactional Analysis and Behavioural therapies such as CBT, MBCT and REBT, and Human Givens.
I also offer coaching in Mindfulness, helping you to stay calm and focus on what is happening here and now instead of looking to the past or future.
I offer a safe and confidential environment where there are comfortable and quiet therapy rooms and plenty of free parking. My aim is for you to feel valued and safe, in a professional setting, enabling you to explore the issues that are troubling you in your own time and to work together to help you find self acceptance and a happier future.
I offer counselling to adults, children and adolecents on a one to one basis and Couples Counselling. I also have 18 years experience working with children with special educational and social needs, including Autistic Spectrum Disorders. I am also able to offer an 8 week mindfulness programme, a scientifically proven way to deal with depression, stress, anxiety etc.
I am passionate about helping people to live happier lives and reach their full potential and find my work incredibly rewarding. Together we can work through your concerns, at your own pace, making sense of your thoughts and feelings to help you move forwards and reslove those issues that are holding you back.
Whether it's anxiety, anger management, bereavement, depression, relationship issues, generalised anxiety disorder, or help with addictions we can work at your own pace.
Addictions, abuse, separation, family issues, divorce, eating disorders and self-harm can all be worked through in this safe environment. Helping you to gain an understanding of your behaviour is the first step towards positive change.
I have a special interest in working with teenagers and young adults. Although there are school and college counsellors doing a fantastic job, there is often a fear of what will be kept on personal records at school, college or work.
All sessions and their content remain completely confidential. Self harm in itself is a secretive act, together we can look at the underlying causes and work at your own pace to address these issues in a calm and comfortable, completely supportive environment.
In my Hypnotherapy clinic, I see clients of all ages who want to change unhelpful behaviours, become more confident and relaxed. For a more detailed explanation of the Hypnotherapy services I offer, please look at my web site or my listing on the Hypnotherapy directory.

Skype, FaceTime and telephone sessions available. The advantages of online counselling are that there is no travelling time or costs for clients and we can be more flexible with session times to suit you as not restricted to clinic hours. Online counselling has been proven to be just as successful as face to face sessions.
By offering an Integrated approach I can blend the different types of theories to form an individual treatment plan to suit each client. We are all individuals with their own unique set of issues and one approach does not suit all.
I always offer the core conditions for therapy, genuineness, unconditional positive regard and empathy.
