About me

Hello, my name is Karen and I am a counsellor based in Guernsey. I have worked and trained in both the Uk and Guernsey where I have lived for 30 years.

I believe we all have the potential to lead fulfilling lives but sometimes we can feel confused, lose direction and become unsure which way to turn.  I can offer you a safe, supportive and confidential space where we can explore any concerns or issues that may be troubling you and gently address difficult feelings, free of any judgement. As a Counsellor, I will not tell you what to do or make decisions for you but through working together, help you move forwards, create changes in your life and develop greater self-understanding.

Central to my work is the development of a trusting relationship between client and counsellor; you will be offered acceptance and understanding and perhaps for the first time, be fully heard.

I recognise that we are all unique and so I offer a range of therapeutic approaches and skills in working with you, depending on your needs.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have extensive experience working in education and health in counselling related roles for both the voluntary sector and public service and for the past two years, have volunteered for Guernsey Bereavement Service.

Level 5 Diploma in Integrative Humanistic Counselling (NCS Accred)
BA (Hons.) Psychology and English
Postgraduate Diploma in Careers Guidance
Introduction to Counselling Skills & Bereavement & Loss
Certificate in Counselling and Developing Bereavement & Loss Awareness

I am committed to my ongoing development and will be training as a relationship therapist.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.

Wheelchair user access

I offer Skype appointments to assist clients with mobility issues.

Availability

I try to be as flexible as possible to accommodate clients' life, work and home commitments. I offer evening appointments.
