My approach

I help my clients to better understand what causes them to feel, think and behave the way they do and support them to make positive changes in their life story.

'You' Centred Counselling

Focused on your unique needs and what you want to discuss and achieve.

Creating a Safe Space

Putting you at ease so you feel able to talk freely and enjoy a valuable counselling experience.

Being Human

Meeting you with kindness and no judgement. Balancing difficult conversations with lighter moments.

Believing in You

Supporting you to create the mindset and conditions that will make you flourish.

how I got here

Why I'm a counsellor

1. To help other people through the challenges they are experiencing and work towards becoming their true self.

2. To provide clients with a positive experience of counselling because I know from my own experience how beneficial and life changing that can be.

3. A desire to normalise having counselling and promote how much one's mental and physical wellbeing are intertwined.

What My Clients Say

Online Client

With a calm, gentle, clarity Karen was able to gently help me to question and diminish unhelpful behaviours while focusing on increasing my self-belief.

Why I believe in counselling

The most important relationship we can all have is the one you have with yourself, the most important journey you can take is one of self-discovery.
