Karen Woodley Counselling Psychotherapist MA, MNCS Accred.
Hello I'm Karen, I offer Professional Therapy in the form of Counselling / psychotherapy to adults with relationship difficulties, on the Autism Spectrum; those of you who want to work through Childhood issues, Body stresses and also Couples Therapy.
My training has been Person-centred, Integrative and somatic based which means I am able to work in the here and now with you through an Holistic approach whereby your mind and body are brought into the therapy work together.
Currently my clients have difficulties with Anxiety, Loneliness, Relationships; difficulties with being able to express themselves and trusting their own experiences. People with poor self esteem, with trauma and a terrible inner critic that stops them from living without fear.
Free Counselling is offered to NHS staff COVID-19
I invite you to come along and chat about what you are looking to get from therapy, see if you feel you can work with me. My promise is to give you the best support in line with your expectations.
I am based in Blaenavon and in Risca.
Please email or call me with any questions you may have. I look forward to hearing from you.

Areas of counselling I deal with
Other areas of counselling I deal with
If you find it difficult to listen to your own emotions and knowing what you want and wish for in your life with a sense of something being wrong but cant quite understand what, Counselling can help.
Perhaps you have learnt to always put others' needs first and have lost touch with yourself, find yourself stuck or emotional without reason then talking about this is a great way to start to begin to get a sense of being back in control of your life again.
I look forward to hearing from you. Sometimes we need to make sense of things that have happened, feel again to move on and live with vital energy again.
