About

Hi, I’m Karen Finch at Open Window Counselling. I provide an approachable, empathetic and non-judgmental counselling service based in Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs. I’ve helped many clients to successfully overcome debilitating anxiety, emotional trauma, and to move on with their lives after significant grief. I often work with clients experiencing big changes in their lives, helping them to make sense of what is happening and to gain optimism and confidence – finding new opportunities within seemingly overwhelming situations. My specialty is emotional trauma. I use a trauma informed approach, with kindness and without judgment.
Sometimes life can feel really difficult and we become overwhelmed. You might be experiencing challenges and changes; at work, study, in your relationships, or with family and friends. My approach is to help you make sense of your situation. To see a different perspective and learn strategies to gain more control of your thoughts, feelings and emotions.
Please get in touch. My first session is a free intake interview to help you feel comfortable with me and the counselling process. My rates are reasonable, similar to the amount you would pay as a gap when seeing a Psychologist
