About me

Hi, my name is Keren. A warm welcome to my web-page. I have over ten years experience counselling children, young people and adults. I provide a confidential space where you can be heard and understood. You can talk about whatever is on your mind and we can reflect on it together. It could be about past or present issues that are bothering you, such as: bereavement, anxiety, depression or relationship issues. Together we can explore your thoughts, feelings and experiences, to help you make positive changes in your relationships and life. I have the fullest commitment to offering a service which is welcoming to all backgrounds in a supportive and non-discriminatory manner. I am open to negotiating a cost that is more affordable to you, if necessary. I can offer online or face to face (when safer).

What to do next

If you would like to find out more, please email or call me to set up an initial meeting free of charge. This gives us an opportunity to discuss what you want from counselling sessions and how I can help. If you decide you would like to continue, we can arrange further sessions together.

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.

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.

Accessibility

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.

Supervision

  Working together I offer a safe space to help you reflect on your work with clients, including work with children and young people.  I aim to develop a collaborative working relationship with you, so you feel safe enough to openly explore any thoughts, feelings and experiences about your work, without judgement.  In supervision we explore your client work together to help us understand your clients better and improve your work with them.  This includes exploring any issues arising from sessions, celebrating progress and success, discussing any difficulties, blindspots or ethical dilemmas, increasing your self-awareness and resilience, and thinking about ways to facilitate positive changes in your clients and improve their wellbeing.
