Karen Butcher

Member Status: Accredited

Member No: NCS16-03703

Location: Huddersfield

I am qualified to work with young children, teenagers and adults. I work using an integration of models and tailor these to meet the individual needs of a client. With young children, the process is very child led and I use therapeutic play to support a child to process their emotions in a safe space. Work with a teenager requires a secure understanding of the teenage brain and the challenges as they develop towards being a young adult.
My work with adults has been diverse and I am able to offer a flexible approach, ensuring that each individual feels comfortable to explore areas that are important to them.
I also work part time in Child and Adolescent Mental Health in Kirklees.
