Karon Dillon, MBACP
Sometimes in life, we may struggle with difficult feelings and feel overwhelmed, leading to anxiety and depression, which in turn may lead to relationship issues. With a bit of support and someone to talk to, this can often make things a little clearer and help gain a different perspective and make a difference to how we feel. This is where counselling can help and I offer a safe, confidential and non-judgemental space to do just that. I believe there is always hope and a way through.
I am a qualified counsellor and a member of the British Association for Counsellors and Psychotherapists and adhere to their ethical guidelines. I qualified in April 2015 and have had experience of counselling individuals who have found themselves in a caring role for loved ones and friends as well as counselling children at Place 2 Be through creative play.
At times, the counselling journey may bring up some difficult feelings and I may not have all the answers for you. My role is to support you on this journey as we work together to help you find your own answers and make choices that feel right for you.
My main focus is helping people with anxiety, depression, loss and bereavement.

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.
