About me

Hi, my name is Karen.

I am a qualified professional counsellor. I offer a safe, caring and confidential place for you to explore and talk through what is going on for you, I endeavour to support and listen to you, in a non-judgemental manner, working together with your thoughts and feelings, and helping you grow from these experiences, so you are more able to deal with what life throws in your direction.

I understand how hard it is to make that first step, deciding to have counselling. You may have felt at times no one  understands, or you don't want to burden your family and friends as they have their own busy lives. We can talk about anything you would like to bring into the session, in a safe environment, confidentially, at a pace that suits you.

By working together I will help you explore where you are, where you would like to get to, supporting you through any changes. The Person Centred approach enables me to explore your experiences with you, offering support and encouragement in an empathic and non-judgemental manner.

I have experience working with survivors of domestic violence, not only physical, but emotional, mental and sexual abuse, exploring the issues these cause, the difficulty in being able to trust again, the struggles to accept your own self-worth. Working with anxiety and depression caused by everyday life.
I have also had personal experience working with ADHD, and Asperger's and related issues.

I offer up to 15 minutes telephone appointment which is free.
Our initial call will give us a chance to discuss your needs, by assessing your needs this will enable us to decide if we are suitable to work with each other, to ensure the best possible outcome to be reached.

Member organisations

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Wheelchair user access
Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
