Karolina Standing MBACP Dip.Couns
I OFFER ONLINE COUNSELLING.
I work in an integrative way that draws on a range of theoretical approaches and skills to work with your individual needs and tailor the therapy to you. I place emphasis on a safe, empathic and collaborative therapeutic space, valuing the unique therapeutic relationship that can develop with each individual.
I do not believe that one type of person or life is less important or valid than another, and I do not sit in judgement according to race, gender, sexuality, dis/ability or other beliefs.
Why choose therapy?
Sometimes we encounter problems that can feel insurmountable and we find ourselves suffering and feeling stuck or overwhelmed. For some, the cause may be a specific event or transition in life. At other times, the roots of our struggles may seem vague, experienced through repeating patterns in our lives, depression, anxiety, unhealthy relationships or addictions.
Such experiences can be a call for us to look within, to expand our level of awareness and enable new modes of being that allow us to build deeper, more meaningful relationships with ourselves and others.
Counselling is a relational journey in which client and therapist work together to foster insight and understanding, to ease suffering and to recover a life of meaning, authenticity and connection. Often people find that simply being able to speak of something in complete confidence for the first time results in a considerable lessening of anxiety.
I am a fully qualified Integrative Counsellor. I am also a member of the BACP.

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.
