Hello, I’m Karen.
I help people to explore the connections and behaviours within relationships. I also combine different types of counselling so that sessions best fit each person. It’s a creative approach that helps people explore difficulties and opportunities for change in a way that works for them.
Life brings many challenges. Events or relationships can feel overwhelming, difficulties can be hard to get on top of, or we can feel a loss of direction or purpose. Counselling is a safe, confidential space, where I listen with empathy and without judgement. I talk with you to explore and reflect on the thoughts, feelings, and challenges that you are facing in your life. This can be helpful for making sense of challenging times.
Together we can explore your situation in a way that can make it easier to understand. It may help you to understand yourself better, too. For example, you could be having difficulty with a relationship, living with anxious thoughts, mood swings or depression, bereavement or loss, feeling unable to cope with a situation, loneliness, or stress.
My core values are honesty, trust, loyalty and kindness, mutual respect and creativity, and I bring these values to my counselling. I value each person that comes to counselling, acknowledging that everyone is an individual with different needs and values.
I know and believe, in the difference that counselling can make in people’s lives. I also believe in helping people find the difference that makes a difference.
