About me

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

I specialise in help with

  • generalised anxiety
  • loss, grief, bereavement
  • cancer (diagnosis, treatment, remission, living with cancer, terminal diagnosis)
  • illness (esp chronic and life-changing, incl Long COVID)
  • hopelessness, feeling sad, regrets
  • personal change and transitions (private or work life)
  • low self esteem

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 at https://karinsieger.com/online-psychotherapy-karin-sieger/

I am registered and accredited by BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) and a recognised healthcare provider with AXA, AVIVA, Allianz, Cigna and WPA.

I am an integrative psychotherapist, which means I can draw on a range of approaches including humanistic, person-centred, psychodynamic, CBT depending on what is most helpful to you at the time. Depending on your needs I offer one-off sessions, short and longer term therapy.

My fee for a 50 minute session is £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. I have been diagnosed with cancer twice. My own patient experience underpins the support I offer to people affected by cancer (incl relatives).

Please note that all my client consultations take place online. I work with adults (18+), and do not offer couples or children's counselling.

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)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
