Karen Wormald Msc, Bsc, UKCP Accredited, MBACP (Reg) Counsellor/Psychotherapist
Your decision to look for counselling is the first step in helping you to move forward with whatever issue or difficulty that has prompted you to look for a counsellor at this time. I have experience as a Psychotherapist and Counsellor of meeting people with a whole range of issues and would like the opportunity to meet with you to discuss your needs.
I am a Person-Centred and Experiential therapist with a particular interest in childhood trauma, anxiety, neurodiversity and spirituality. I have experience of both short and long term work including issues relating to workplace stress and mental health.
I work with individuals on an open-ended basis or for an agreed time period, with the aim of enabling you to enhance your life and to live it more fully. Sessions last 50 minutes and are on a weekly basis at an agreed day and time.
My practice is within easy reach of Shepshed, Loughborough, Ashby and Coalville.
I have completed additional training to enable me to work with young people (11 to 18 years).
Current ways of working
Currently I am working remotely via Zoom (or similar) or via telephone counselling. I normally see clients from my therapy room at home in Shepshed, Leicestershire. Additionally I usually have some availability at either Ashby or Loughborough.

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
UK Council for Psychotherapy
The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) is a leading professional body for the education, training and regulation of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors. Its register is accredited by the government's Professional Standards Authority.
As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.
UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
Accredited register membership
