Welcome To My Website
Hi, I am Karen and I am a qualified, experienced and Accredited Counsellor, working in Woking.
From Monday 20th July, I will be offering face-to-face as well as online Counselling for adults: individuals or couples, including same sex partners.
I have been counselling for a number of years and began my training when I was working for Catalyst, a charity offering help around drug and alcohol misuse and also supporting emotional wellbeing. It was the experience of seeing and hearing how many people felt ‘stuck’ in their lives that led me into Counselling.
I believe we all have the ability to change and grow, to create the best possible lives for ourselves and the people around us but to do this we often need someone alongside. Counselling can help us recognise what matters most to us so we can make more sense of our lives. Sometimes this is the first experience of having another who is interested in us and our concerns.
Our society has many inequalities and imbalances which can have devastating effects on mental health and wellbeing. My counselling is based on the belief that everyone is different, each person trying to live their lives in a way that is meaningful to them and that everyone matters. It is important in Counselling that you feel heard and understood.
Sometimes a session or two of Counselling is all people are looking for to give them a fresh perspective. If you are wanting briefer Counselling, I suggest you start with an initial session of 90 minutes. Many people find they need more sessions, usually between 12 and 25, whilst others benefit from ongoing weekly counselling over years. I base my work around how you see your needs and am flexible and responsive to this.
I have day, evening and some weekend online sessions available. If you prefer face to face Counselling when this becomes safe again, parking is off road and very easy.
If you are interested in having counselling, please send an email to: email@example.com or call me on 07495 267944.
Your first session will be at a reduced price so you can see whether you feel comfortable talking to me: £30.00 for an initial session for individuals, £45.00 for couples.
Please note Counselling is not an emergency service. If you need urgent help, please call 999, your GP or Samaritans on 116 123.
