My name is Karen and I invite you to explore the power of therapy.
Having worked with young adults in a low secure forensic unit, adults and children with autism and learning disabilities and with groups in rehabilitation I understand how important getting the right help is and believe in the power of psychotherapy to help you transform your life.
I am familiar and work with personality disorders, trauma, grief, women’s issues, anxiety, stress, abuse and Couples too. As a Movement Psychotherapist I am drawn to the body and its language and so often in sessions pay attention to ‘where you are breathing in your body’, ‘What your hands are saying’. The body focus works where there is trauma as becoming safely embodied and finding a stable and solid foundation is extremely important.
Many people don’t enjoy paying attention to their breathing and find knowing how they feel very difficult and so the therapy is focused on talking through what was, what is the experience for them about a particular situation or relationship and what is important for them to understand, to know and to heal.
Often people seek Counselling for help with bothersome thoughts, patterns that keep showing in their life whether that be in intimate relationships, work or how they manage day-to-day tasks. Whatever your reasons for seeking help you have come to the right place and I look forward to hearing from you.
My promise is to offer confidentiality, warmth and honesty on your therapeutic journey. When you are ready, you can book your sessions in person or online.
