About me

Welcome to Continuum Counselling - My name is Karen Lafferty, and I am a BACP accredited Person Centered Counsellor.

I have worked as a counsellor for a number of years across a variety of different settings from NHS, to charities. I have training in CBT, which can be helpful for client struggling with anxiety, depression, phobias & OCD. I have several years of experience in the field of addictions and have supported clients with alcohol, drug, and gambling addictions.

I aim to provide affordable counselling through a variety of different mediums - Counselling can be carried out face to face in the North Lanarkshire area, by telephone, by Skype, or by email exchange - which ever is most comfortable and convenient for you. I am happy to provide you with a free initial 15 minute consultation to help you decide if counselling is right for you. This will take place by telephone, or Skype.
