Karen Warriner, FdSc Humanistic Counselling and Psychotherapy, MBACP(Accred.)
Counselling - Humanistic Counselling and Psychotherapy offering Person Centred, Existential and Gestalt therapy.
Are you looking for a warm approachable therapist to talk to in a safe confidential space? I believe that the relationship between myself as the therapist and you as a client is key to effective therapy. If you need to talk and explore your issues with someone who will listen with empathy whilst enabling you to develop self-awareness and self-compassion, please contact me to see if we can work together.
I am a fully insured and qualified accredited member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy MBACP (Accred).
I work with children, young people and adults in my private practice and school settings. I also work at Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice Care where I counsel patients, carers and family members (the latter both pre and post bereavement). In addition I have a special interest in counselling individuals on the Autistic Spectrum, those with Learning Difficulties and Language and Communication issues.
Coach House Counselling offers face-to-face counselling with both daytime and evening appointments available. As a qualified professional, I adhere to the BACP Ethical framework and it's values and principles.
I am now also offering counselling via telephone or Zoom video platform. We can discuss which media you would prefer. Payment would be via Bank Transfer 24 hours in advance.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am professionally qualified, with a Foundation Degree in Humanistic Counselling (FdSc) and an accredited member of The British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy MBACP (Accred). I have also undertaken further specialist training with Place2Be, a successful charity which champions children's mental health and well-being.
I come from a background of working in health and education and believe mental health and well-being is key to enabling us to live happier, healthier and more fulfilling lives. Counselling empowers us to support ourselves, with self-knowledge and self-compassion.
I work with adults, young people and children in both private practice and school settings, with experience of supporting clients with a wide range of issues and challenges. I also offer counselling to student counsellors.
I am also privileged to work at Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice Care, counselling patients, carers and family members. As such I have a special interest in supporting those with a terminal or life limiting illness or those affected by this issue and bereavement.
All counselling is tailored to individual need, providing personalised support through a warm and engaging therapeutic relationship.
When working with children I use a child centred approach based around attachment theory, incorporating the language of play and creativity to support the counselling process.
In addition, I have experience of supporting individuals with language and communication difficulties, autistic spectrum and learning difficulties and can differentiate to meet individual needs.
I am experienced in helping clients who are finding it difficult to cope with:
* Relationship issues
* Low self-esteem
* Panic attacks
* Family break-down
* Terminal or Life Limiting illness
* Grief and Bereavement
These are examples of common issues, it is not intended to be an conclusive list. Please contact me with any other issues you may be experiencing to see if I can help!
