About me

Hello I'm Karen,

I offer confidential individual Professional Counselling MNCS (Accredited Therapist and Clinical Supervisor) and also Movement Psychotherapy. Our time together is yours to explore unhappiness, pain, shame, depression, low mood, bereavement, addictions, fear, low self esteem, relationship troubles, anything that is bothering and concerning you. Perhaps you want to tackle things from your past or try to change things in your life today.

I can help you if you are struggling with overwhelm, rage or feel very emotional and on edge. If you need help choosing a positive direction and would value the clarity that comes from sharing with a therapist who can understand your needs and difficulties and help you to find a sense of stability and guide you in finding your own answers.
It is important to understand that you don't have to go through these difficulties alone. I offer you my full presence and first free consultation so you can find out for yourself if working with me is the right fit for you. My promise is to fully support you in helping you discover your own solutions.

Adults - I currently see women and men in midlife change and crisis, people with deep anxiety and stress, loss, addictions and suicidal thoughts. Some clients are looking for short term therapy and others longer term work. Many clients with emotional difficulties and relationship problems, depression and psychosomatic illness and those who have suffered abuse. Perhaps you know exactly what it is you need help with and perhaps you don't but you feel that something is not quite right within yourself and your world.

Children - working with children through the Art of Dance Movement Psychotherapy allows those with emotional difficulties, anger issues, learning disabilities, autism and other needs to find ways of recovering and discovering what is meaningful to them  and what helps them to cope with school, work, make friends etc. Anxiety and Stress are big problems at this time and this work lessens the impact and even resolves and dissolves the tendencies that are experienced in the body.

I offer a first free consultation where we chat about what you are looking to get from therapy and if you feel you can work with me and I think that I can give you the best support in line with your expectations than we can book sessions together.

I work form Risca, Blaenavon and Monmouth

Please email or call me with any questions you may have. I look forward to hearing from you.
