So often in our lives we reach a place where we are struggling in some capacity or another. It may be a deep-rooted issue that goes back to childhood, a past relationship or a trauma. It may be some destructive behaviour such as a form of self-harm or an eating disorder. It may be a negative thought process that is having an impact on our daily life. Whatever the issue, I believe counselling can help. Having a place where we can allow ourselves time and a calm space to think, talk and work things out can be absolutely priceless.

I have a particular interest in trauma and how it impacts our nervous system: PTSD and C-PTSD, dissociation, hearing voices, addictive behaviours and coping mechanisms and their link to childhood trauma; 'ACE's' (Adverse Childhood Experiences), and how these affect us as adults. Trauma comes in many forms; obvious, overt ones such as physical or sexual abuse, car accidents, war, disasters etc, and also less obvious or covert forms like emotional abuse or neglect, bullying, or just 'not getting what we need' on an emotional level. I'm a member of ISST-D, a trainee member of UKCP and BCPC, and have specialist trauma training.

Most of us are taught from an early age that we should hide parts of ourselves to get by. As the person we are pulls away from the person we’re told we should be, we’re left with lingering distress and a struggle to feel truly connected and at home within ourselves. I believe the more we understand, accept and nurture ourselves, the more equipped to find the connection, community and purpose we’re longing for. Perhaps you feel that sense of struggle, or are feeling unmoored from the person you really are. Perhaps you're looking for support as you grow and find your way.

Perhaps you have relationship or family issues or would like to work on ways to improve how you relate to people. Or you may be coming to terms with a loss or trauma in your life and are looking to process your experiences and see a way forward. We come to therapy for many reasons.

As a lead therapist in a prestigious rehab, as well as private practice, I manage other counsellors and work with clients bringing a specialism of trauma into the treatment of addiction. My training, studies and experience, both professionally and personally has taken me toward looking at addiction as a symptom of psychological trauma. Trauma is often rooted in relationship difficulties, which may mean we need to experience trusting interactions and connections in order to repair the original wound or to understand the carnage addiction may cause.

I am currently offering telephone, online video and face to face counselling by appointment. If you are currently looking for a counsellor it may well be that you have reached a point of change. You can no longer put up with the current situation you feel you are in. You may be suffering anxious feelings or low mood, or be struggling with anger and frustration, or any number of other concerns. These are feelings that we all experience from time to time, but they can be limiting and have an effect on our general happiness and satisfaction with life.

I am passionate about Humans' ability to heal when they feel supported and accompanied on their personal life path. We all have greater potential and resources than we think. A lot of the times it is difficult to access this for various (and many) reasons... Fear, trauma, beliefs, illness... Transformation or change is possible. Sometimes we can "shut down" so much emotionally, that we don't even notice we do. Therapy can help with exploring our ways and difficulties to relate, and be in this world as well as what empowers us.

I believe that life is filled with challenges and obstacles for a reason; that these have inherent in them a great potential for personal growth and transformation that only becomes manifest once we face our problems and endeavour to understand them. The first step towards overcoming our sorrow is to listen to what it has to tell us: the lesson that it is here to teach. Nonetheless, most of us do not have the presence, nor the guidance, nor the knowledge of how to provide our difficult thoughts and emotions with the space that they need. This lack of space is what leads to increased anxiety, depression, as well as low self-esteem.

Hello there. My name is Karl and I appreciate you taking the time to read my profile. If you're struggling with unhelpful or negative thoughts and emotions then I can appreciate how distressing this may be for you. I can help you manage these through the use of CBT & EMDR based techniques and strategies. In my practice I consider my clients to be a co-therapist and we will work together. CBT works by the theory that we can manage and modulate our emotions through evaluating/changing our cognitions & behaviours accordingly. EMDR utilises bilateral stimulation (eye movements) to aid the reprocessing of symptoms of Trauma and PTSD.

You may feel unfulfilled, bored or creatively inhibited. All of these difficulties affect the quality of your life.

I believe in the power of opening up, and while I will draw on theory and knowledge to support each individual client, I am led by the client and their individual needs. An ideal client is someone who wishes to build a therapeutic space alongside me, allowing me to facilitate safety and build trust. I am experienced at working with complex mental health needs, therefore I begin by creating a formulation of the problem with the client, and collaboratively establish their needs and personal goals. i am interested in helping others to learn about themselves through relational dynamics they experience.
