Karen Marshall MBACP (Accred). Person Centred Supervisor. EMDR. BUPA Recognised
My name is Karen I am a Person Centred / Integrative Counsellor working within my full time private practice based in Rotherham.
Before I qualified as a therapist I worked within the NHS for 11 years, I found the work very rewarding, however I discovered that I wasn’t often equipped with the necessary skills in order to facilitate patients (and indeed myself) in processing difficult information that was being delivered to individuals.
Subsequently, I proceeded to gain the necessary qualifications and Clinical experience in order to practice as a professional Counsellor / Psychotherapist.
My training was undertaken within the NHS, I had the privilege of gaining an Honorary Placement; I worked alongside other professionals' and gained the experience of the client’s hospital journey before some of them being referred or referring themselves to the hospital Counselling Service.
I have also worked within the YWCA.The YWCA supports women, some whom were facing issues like homelessness, street workers and offenders.The service was invaluable not only to the people who used the service but to me too; I developed my understanding of social, cultural, economic, educational and geographical issues that affect our society.
In 2008 (until 2015) I was part of a small team that developed a local Counselling Service, My work involved working within this specialist centre that offers Counselling / Psychotherapy to women and men who are affected by PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder), panic attacks anxiety, depression and other symptoms associated with trauma or other transitional life experiences.
I offer a kind, warm and compassionate space in order for you to explore and process your personal life experiences.
I am committed to my own self awareness, I attend Continued Personal and Professional Development Training in order to facilitate my own self understanding and development.
