About me

Thank you for visiting my profile in your search for support.

Please note that during the coronavirus lockdown all my client consultations take place online.

I specialise in support with

  • anxiety
  • personal change and transitions (private or work life)
  • loss, grief, bereavement
  • low self esteem
  • illness (esp chronic and life-changing)
  • cancer counselling
  • coronavirus wellbeing support

I work with adults (18+), and do not offer couples or children's counselling.

During a free 20 minute online consultation you can tell me a bit more about why you are seeking support and ask me any relevant questions. Together we can then decide on next steps. You can find out more about the online counselling I offer via my website here https://karinsieger.com/online-counselling-karin-sieger/

My standard fee is £75. I offer reduced fees for those affected financially by COVID19 and key workers (£50-£75).

Contact me by email to arrange your free consultation. 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.

About me: I hold a Masters in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy, which means I can draw from a range of approaches (including humanistic, relational, psychodynamic, CBT) depending on what is most relevant and helpful. I trained in the NHS, where I also worked before setting up my private practice. Before training to become a therapist, I spent some 25 years in consumer and media research (incl BBC World Service and AOL). My website https://karinsieger.com is among the top 10 UK psychotherapy blogs where you can find a large range of self help articles written by me.

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.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

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.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
