Karen Keys MBACP
Counselling for depression, anxiety, bereavement and relationship problems. Couples and individuals.
I am an experienced, qualified, Relate trained Counsellor working with couples on relationship issues and with individuals on stress, anger problems, anxiety, depression, bereavement and many other issues.
I will listen with kindness and compassion, without judging or imposing solutions, while providing space for you to explore your inner feelings. Working together, counselling helps you to untangle your emotions, sort out your worries and take the vital steps toward getting the life you want and the happiness you need.When working with individuals I look to combine counselling methods, which may be different for the needs of each unique client.
In relationship counselling there can be many factors. You may have been hurt by infidelity or you may keep having the same arguments with your partner, round and around. I work with you to determine what you want out of your partnership, the issues and patterns that hold you back or are at the heart of disagreements and we look at how to move forward into the future.
I have trained in relationship Counselling with Relate who are the UK's gold standard for relationship counselling.
