Speaking with a Confidential therapist about your mental and emotional difficulties can help you to clarify where it is you are stuck in your life and where you need support in moving forward. Many times we have not had another person available solely for us and for holding all-out life experiences without judgement and without criticism helping us to piece all the missing links together.
It could be that you feel alone and uncertain and need help in putting things into perspective which could then enable you to see options and a way forward that you had not seen before.
Often times we feel we would love to care for ourselves more but don’t know how to do this or where to start. Perhaps we find ourselves in bad relationships over and over again because the thought of being alone is unbearable or we feel things but just cannot find the words to express what it is we have to say. Perhaps you know exactly what it is you need help with and perhaps you don’t but you feel that something is not quite right within yourself and your world.
The Counselling / Psychotherapy I offer is good short term and long term and this we will discuss to find the best way forward according to your needs. What we discuss in sessions is completely confidential and as an Accredited Therapist and Clinical Supervisor, I adhere to a professional code of ethics, conduct and professional practice.
How long will Counselling/Psychotherapy take for me to feel better?
You can start to feel better immediately but it is wise to know that it can take some time and all depends on the nature of the problem. We will discuss this together during your first session where you will have the opportunity to talk about what you would like to focus on and ask any questions you may have.
How long does a session last?
The sessions are for 5omin hr or 90min.

“I made a commitment to myself to book 6 counselling sessions with Karen. I felt comfortable talking to her and was able to discuss for the first time some stressful episodes in my life. I love the way Karen noticed my tensions and reminded me to breathe, do grounding exercises with her and this really helped me to connect with how I feel. I had a couple of significant dreams during the counselling process and my aim now is to develop this refreshing feeling of accepting myself. For me, its the acceptance I received from Karen’s approach that has enabled me to discover a new self confidence.”
“Karen was an enormous help, learning quickly my needs and the best way to help me with them. She was kind, understanding and did fantastic work for my confidence and keeping my head in the right place. Using techniques I hadn’t really considered before, she helped me see that I could believe in myself. Anyone would benefit from a session or more from Karen.”
Many people are bracing themselves whilst this Corona Virus takes hold each dealing with it in their own ways. Whilst the World health Organisation is urging us to wash our hands, use sanitiser and be aware of ourselves and others in terms of sneezes and fevers some people will respond in anxious ways.
This is the message from the sister of Caroline flack who sadly took her own life last week at age forty with her whole life ahead of her. Said to have been violent towards her partner Caroline did not want to face trial.
In Counselling Therapy there are moments of joy where clients know on deep levels that they are really understood, they are truly unique and that their feelings are not going to hurt them, not going to overwhelm them because in the space with the therapist they can be integrated gently.
