I am an Integrative Counsellor, with extensive experience and specialist training in Trauma Therapy. I work with both adults and adolescents. I draw from several counselling approaches but overall I'm relational and compassion focused. I offer a warm and non-judgmental space where together we can explore any difficulties or challenges you may be facing and express your thoughts and emotions in a safe environment. You may be experiencing low mood, anxiety, PTSD , bereavement or relationship breakdown. Whatever your need, I am here to listen and can help you to make sense of your experiences and feelings and find your own way forward.

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.

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 .

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 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.

People will come to therapy at different points in their life for different reasons. For some people, difficult emotions, distress or a stuck feeling may have developed over a period of time; for others a significant life experience may prompt the need for therapeutic support. Whatever your specific circumstances are, recognising the need for support is a positive step forward. I offer a gentle, empathetic approach, creating a safe place in which to explore the areas my clients wish to focus on.

My focus is on collaboration to form an empowering therapeutic relationship centred on your needs. Alongside facilitating personal agency, I aim to situate the difficulties brought to therapy within the broader context they occur as problems seldom exist in a vacuum. I have over 10 years of experience in mental health services with a range of presenting difficulties. I offer a free 15 minute consultation as an opportunity to identify if we could work together. This can then be followed by a more detailed assessment appointment. After this regular therapy sessions can be arranged to work on your identified goals.

Trauma and PTSD Counsellors
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is a psychological reaction that occurs after an extremely stressful event, such as physical violence or military combat. Those suffering from PTSD have recurring memories of the stressful event and are anxious or scared even in the absence of danger. Flashbacks and nightmares are common symptoms as well.
