General Counselling

Karen offers face to face, online and phone counselling in a confidential and safe environment.

Karen has the ability to connect with people of all ages, making them feel comfortable and where they are able to explore their deepest concerns.

Sessions often last 1 hour and can be delivered face to face, walk and talk, phone or online. The first session essentially covers the boundaries of confidentiality, consent and counselling agreement forms, getting to know one another and discussing your presenting concerns.

Karen will offer you a therapeutic plan to address these concerns, which you are able to take away and consider. A positive relationship between the counsellor and client is important, therefore you may find that at the end of the first session is when you will determine whether Karen is a good fit for you.

Counselling Teenagers

Karen has significant experience working with young people and teenagers who are going through life’s challenges.

Six years working in a secondary school as a Careers and Pathways Coordinator has given Karen insight into what many young people are struggling with.


Sometimes all a person needs is someone to download to, where they feel heard and listened to, not judged and safe to disclose any concerns or issues they are going through. This can be in the form of anxiety, depression, self-harm, general mental health, bullying (online or face to face) family issues, friendship, and relationship issues.

All information remains confidential between Karen and client, unless it is a critical incident, which is discussed in the first session. It is important the young person feel safe and comfortable, which is often determined at the end of the first session.
