About me

Hi, I'm Karen, a UKCP Reg Psychotherapist & EMDR Europe Consultant offering 50 mins online sessions.
Practising for over 24 years with people struggling to develop or remain in committed relationships; who belief that they are addicted to love and fear repeating negative patterns of behaviours within relationships; who struggle with other addictions, or find it difficult to set boundaries, who are experiencing difficulty with intimacy and allowing people to get closer, who struggle with self confidence or self worth, who feel lonely & isolated; or would like to stop people pleasing and have difficulties prioritising their own needs; who have experienced infidelity/betrayals of trust or struggle with communication.
I specialise working with trauma treatment. My primary treatment approach is using EMDR although I integrate other treatment modalities, including Brainspotting, Internal Family Systems, (IFS) and Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT). to work with symptoms of trauma, toxic stress or adverse life experiences.
Both EMDR and Brainspotting help to enable people to heal from emotional distress that are the result of a disturbing life experience and regulate the automatic nervous system.

I am a fully trained and qualified couples' counsellor and offer relationship therapy/couple therapy and psychosexual therapy. I originally trained with and worked as a Relate relationship and couple's therapist between 1999-2004.

I have experience working with a diverse range of issues, such as stress, anxiety, grief and loss, depression/low mood and phobias, low self confidence/self esteem, depression/low mood, psycho-sexual issues including loss of desire, retarded or premature ejaculation, porn addiction, sexual orientation; mid life crisis/loss of direction, performance anxiety including presentation anxiety and enhancing sports performance.

Areas of interest

Although I deal with a wide range of issues, my main interests are ruptures with early attachment bonds.
An example of how an early attachment rupture might be affect many people is and become symptomatic is upon entering into an emotionally intimate relationship or upon having or raising children because these experiences wake up buried feeling about broken attachments(eg parents/caregivers).
