Cedar Counselling (Karen Lambert)
Who am I?
I am a qualified counsellor and am also a member of the BACP (the professional body who ensure that counsellors work ethically and in the best interests of their clients). My approach is open, honest and down-to-earth and I am a firm believer in the counselling process and the good that it can do. My counselling room is next to my home in Yalding, it's quiet and peaceful and offers you a confidential space to explore any issues that are troubling you.
I am well aware that at times life can be difficult, you may feel anxious, over-whelmed, worried or just not right and talking with me could help you in a different way than talking to a friend of family member. This is primarily because you can be honest with me without me judging you. I'm here to listen to you and to support you in working things out for yourself.
What to expect
After our initial telephone conversation, if you feel that you would feel comfortable working with me, then we'd meet for a consultation. This is often a fact-finding session, and is also the time for you to see whether you'd like to continue your counselling with me. I'm happy to answer any questions you may have about what counselling is and what you can expect to happen in our sessions. If you then decide that counselling is for you, we would meet on a weekly basis for 50 minutes, with regular reviews to check how you feel the process is going.
I have experience of working with both adults and children and work on a weekly, one-to-one basis. This can be either short- or long-term work.
I am insured and work in accordance with the BACP Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy.
