Karin Scott MA PG Dip MBACP Counsellor and Psychotherapist
First session free!
I am a registered member of the BACP with an MA in Integrative Counselling and Practice, offering counselling and therapy to individuals, couples and young people.
I am an experienced counsellor having worked as a therapist for almost 15 years offering an Integrative approach which means I can use different ways of working to meet the needs of my clients. I feel that we all need help and support at times and talking with me in a safe and confidential space can help you to make changes in your life that will benefit you and your family.
I can offer you a supportive and non-judgemental relationship in which you can explore the challenges of your life now or the impact of past experiences, you can express your feelings and come to a better understanding of yourself which will empower you to make those changes and feel happier.
Having worked with Relate I gained relationship counselling qualifications and so can also offer relationship counselling for individuals and couples. All couples experience difficult cycles in their relationship and sometimes some help and support is needed to help move through these times with new ways of understanding and communication, so if you can't talk to each other talk to me and I can help.
All my experience and qualifications enables me to offer family work and support for parents also.
Training, qualifications & experience
As well my private practice I have worked in a number of different settings including CAMHs (Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service), Relate and Place2be.
I have 10 years experience working in CAMHs, working with children and young people experiencing many different emotional, mental health difficulties including anxiety, low mood, self harming behaviours, impact of neglect and abuse, impact of bullying at school and other school related concerns, behaviour/anger issues, attachment difficulties and bereavement to name just a few. This experience has enabled me to work closely with parents to help improve relationships and ensure a positive foundation for counselling and therapy to be supported.
I have completed a number of training course relating to this work including Safeguarding Children and Young People, and have a enhanced DBS.
I gained my relationship counselling qualification during my time working with Relate and so can offer relationship counselling to individuals and couples with a number of different concerns from communication issues, impact of daily life, stress, money, etc.
