Karen Lubner (Psychotherapist & Counsellor)
My therapy practice
I offer a safe, confidential, empathic and non-judgemental space where together we can discuss, explore and work through your feelings, thoughts and experiences.
There are times in everyone’s life when things can feel challenging, distressing or overwhelming.
Psychotherapy can offer a valuable space in which to explore behavioural and emotional patterns and gain a deeper understanding of one’s feelings, thoughts and behaviours. It offers an opportunity to make different choices and can be a space for personal development, exploration and growth.
I prioritise building a good, collaborative therapeutic relationship with my clients.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a qualified psychotherapist with an MA and Advanced Diploma in Integrative psychotherapy and counselling from The Minster Centre in London.
I have over seven years experience in offering psychotherapy and counselling to adults for a wide range of emotional and psychological challenges, including depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, challenging life events and transitions (such as separation and divorce, illness, immigration, victims of crime), stress and relationship difficulties.
I draw on a number of therapeutic approaches to best suit clients’ individual therapeutic needs and goals.
I have worked with clients from a range of social, cultural and ethnic backgrounds in various therapeutic settings including NHS brief counselling, affordable community counselling and in NHS services for more complex mental health needs.
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
Accredited register membership

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
