Karen Mcilvenna, Cognitive Behavioural Therapist.
I established my private practice in 2010 and I am pleased to say it quickly gained an excellent reputation for effective and friendly psychotherapy.
I am a professionally trained Cognitive Behavioural Therapist, trained and experienced to work with a wide range of issues, from clinical disorders to general life concerns.
I have been involved in the field of emotional health for many years, as both a therapist and also as a Samaritan volunteer since 1998.
The cost of a 50 minute session is £45, alternatively there is a discount available for block bookings of six sessions at £225- 6 sessions for the price of 5. (discounted rate requires payment in full up front and is non refundable).
For student counsellors/therapists who must attend personal therapy as a requirement of their course, I offer a reduced rate of £30 per session.
I am also available for group work in the areas of Self Esteem and Stress Management using CBT techniques - if your group/organisation would like group work or a course on another topic, please feel free to contact me.
