Karen Salmon MBACP
I have an inherently caring and nurturing disposition and my reflective nature and listening capabilities have led me to become a qualified counsellor.
I hold a Foundation Degree in Integrative Counselling which incorporates psychodynamic theory that deals with helping a client unravel deep-rooted issues from the past in order to resolve the impact it is having on them in the present, and person-centred theory where the clients focuses on changing the skewed perception he or she may have of themselves with a view to become the best person that they can be.
I have over several years experience working at Northampton Rape Crisis Centre and for the past year on a private basis. I have helped people with issues such as eating disorders, low self-esteem, self-harm, depression etc. I find the integrative approach most suitable as it allows me to adapt theory to suit the client.
I am very passionate about my work and helping others to resolve internal conflicts.
I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and pride myself in maintaining a high standard of professionalism by complying with the ethical codes of conducts set by the BACP.
I provide a comfortable, secure, private space enabling clients to feel confident and safe enough to talk freely.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
