Karin Sieger MA, BA (Hons), Reg. MBACP (Accred)
Thank you for visiting my profile in your search for support.
I am Karin Sieger, an experienced, BACP accredited and registered psychotherapist based in central Richmond, where I see clients in person* and online.
Here to help you during the coronavirus crisis
During this period all my client consultations take place online and I offer
- a free 20 minutes initial consultation online;
- corona crisis support for a fee that suits you. Get in touch to discuss your needs;
- a sliding scale from £40-75 for assistance with all other issues.
If you are looking for support to help you cope with the mental and emotional impact of coronavirus then check out my website for information about my COVID19 mental health support package https://karinsieger.com/covid19-mental-health-support/
I offer short-, longer-term as well as one off consultations, depending on my clients' needs.
I specialise in support with
- coronavirus related difficulties
- personal change and transitions (private or work life)
- loss, grief, bereavement
- low self esteem
- illness (esp chronic and life-changing)
- cancer counselling
I work with adults (18+), and do not offer couples or children's counselling.
An initial session is an opportunity to discuss the reason you are seeking support and what you are hoping to achieve from therapy / counselling. You can also ask me any relevant questions. Based on this meeting we would then decide next steps.
My fees are as follows
- 50 min session in person - £75
- 60 min session online - £90
- One off consultations in person or online: 90 mins (£140), 120 mins (£186)
Feel free to contact me in confidence. I aim to respond to you within 24 hours (excluding weekends and Bank Holidays). If you don't hear from me within this time, then please check your spam folder, esp if you use Hotmail or Yahoo.
Training, qualifications & experience
I hold a Masters degree in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy from the University of Roehampton.
In my work I draw from a range of approaches including Person-Centered, Relational, Humanistic, Psychodynamic, Transpersonal, Cognitive Behaviour (CBT) and Body Psychotherapy.
I am accredited by the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP) and a member of the BACP Register of Counsellors and Psychotherapists, which is accredited by the Department of Health.
I trained in the NHS and voluntary sector. After my training I continued working for two London-based NHS Primary Care Trusts.
I have personal experience of cancer treatment.
