Karen Woodley Counselling Psychotherapist MA, MNCS Accred.
Hello I'm Karen, I offer Professional Counselling and Psychotherapy for Relationship difficulties, Anxiety, people on the Autism Spectrum; Childhood issues, Body stresses, Feelings of 'I just don't feel right' 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.
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 women who have been abused, are going through midlife changes, have suffered emotional and narcissitic abuse and just want to get their life back in flow.
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 Risca, 7 min walk from the train station
Please email or call me with any questions you may have. I look forward to hearing from you.
