Karen Mcilvenna - Registered Member MBACP
Hi, I'm Karen, I am a professionally trained Cognitive Behavioural Therapist.
I am trained and experienced to work with a wide range of issues, from clinical disorders like depression and anxiety disorders, to general life concerns and difficulties such as stress, anger and grief.
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 have also been involved in the field of emotional health for many years, as both a therapist and as a Samaritan volunteer since 1998.
If you would like to find out more about me or how I can help, please do get in touch.
