Karen Sedgwick MBACP, UKATA Dip. (Psychotherapy), Adv. Dip Counselling
It can be a daunting process finding the right counsellor for your own unique situation and experience.
I place the relationship between client and counsellor at the heart of effective therapy and believe it is important that you find a counsellor you feel comfortable sharing your thoughts and feelings with.
At our initial session we will discuss what you would like from therapy. It also offers an opportunity for us to meet, to help you decide if I am the right counsellor for you and for me to ensure that I have the right experience to meet your needs. I offer this initial session at a reduced fee.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have many years experience of counselling individuals with a range of problems. I gained my Advanced Diploma in Integrative Humanistic Counselling (BACP Accredited) in 2008 and have more recently received a Diploma in Transactional Analysis from UKATA.
I am a professional member of BACP, UKATA and EATA and abide by their code of ethics. I am professionally supervised by a UKCP registered supervisor as part of my commitment to ethical practice.
My theoretical approach is Transactional Analysis and I incorporate some CBT techniques into my work when appropriate.
