I'm Karen
I can help with Trauma, Grief, Anxiety, Depression, Menopause and Neurodiversity. Whatever your human condition is, feeling lost, alone, in pain and confused, we work out together co-creatively what you need to heal.
I love what the Humanistic Integrative Psychotherapy College (HIPC) says:
"Humanistic Integrative Psychotherapy relies upon the importance of the relationship between the therapist and client to enable mind, body, feeling, and soul to come together as a whole."

I know how vital the one-to-one personal/professional relationship is in helping you re-discover or discover who you are for the first time and find your place in the world. I work with childhood traumas, anxiety-related issues, relationship difficulties, complicated grief, low self-esteem, shyness, loneliness, depression, Menopause and Neurodiversity.

You can heal your past, make new and different choices, see situations and people more objectively, and change the way you think. New ways of feeling, thinking, and behaving can emerge.

I work in private practice and am a member of the United Kingdom Association of Transactional Analysis (UKATA), the European Association of Transactional Analysis (EATA), the International Transactional Analysis Association (ITAA) and the National Counselling and Psychotherapy Society (NCPS). I work within the United Kingdom Association Counselling and Psychotherapy (UKCP) Ethical framework.
