Karen Macmillan Counsellor (MBACP, Dip. TA Practice)
Is it time for change? You don't have to do it on your own. I can support you to understand yourself better and live a more grounded and fulfilling life.
I offer both short and long term counselling. My style is gentle, empathic and holding.
I counsel adults around a wide range of issues. These include: anxiety, family & relationship issues, depression, low self-esteem and boarding school.
I am a member of BACP, NCS and UKATA, abide by their codes of ethics and am fully insured.
Training, qualifications & experience
My core training is in Transactional Analysis (TA) counselling and psychotherapy; I have additional training and experience in working with adult ex-boarders.
I have worked as a drug and alcohol counsellor and as a college counsellor.
