Hi! You may be here because of anxiety, low mood, issues with food, relationship breakdown, family difficulties or trauma.
Counselling can help us get through tremendously difficult times in our lives but also create longer term change by deepening our self - awareness, bring insight into certain behaviours and building our resilience. I will listen closely to your story without judgment and we will decide together if/how we might work together. I am an Integrative Counsellor so make use of a range of models and theories. I use some CBT tools, Transactional Analysis and I find thinking about our systems and the people/ society around us to be very useful. Depending on you I may suggest some creative tools,

Hello - if you are struggling with low mood, anxiety or overwhelm I offer empathetic, friendly and professional support.

Client quotes: 'My experience of therapy with Karin was positive and enlightening... the strategies and techniques we discussed are still proving invaluable long after my sessions.' ‘The biggest thing I learned is to allow myself to say no to taking on additional commitments without feeling guilty.

I am a creative psychotherapist who works frequently with adults, teens, and pre-teens, who feel overwhelmed by symptoms relating to anxiety, depression, and experiences of trauma; who wish to understand themselves better in order to move forwards. My specialism is offering a therapy experience which involves both conversation, and creative tools/techniques, to help people get to the heart of their issues. Have you ever felt like how you feel is beyond words? Or that you don't want to speak directly about what is troubling you? If so, rest assured that there are lots of other ways to engage in therapy, and that is my speciality.

My name is Toby, and I am a solution-focused and analytical psychotherapist. I centre my work on understanding the root of our behaviour and emotions while striving to facilitate active and meaningful change in the present. By integrating behavioural approaches such as CBT, REBT, DBT, and others with the depth of more analytical approaches like psychodynamic and analytical methods, I can work in a more effective and long-lasting way.

If you or your child are struggling to function because of anxiety or depression I am also trained in CBT.
We all have times in our lives when we feel overwhelmed. This can impact on our relationships and other areas of our lives. These feelings may make it difficult to reach our potential or know how to progress. Counselling offers a reflective space which is helpful for building self-awareness in order to work through past or present life challenges. I employ a flexible approach which is informed by your needs. I draw on different theories to create a style of therapy which is individually tailored to you, and your aims. I hope to provide an open and accepting, and genuinely safe and non-judgemental space to reflect without fear.

The most common problems I see include: Panic ttacks, Agoraphobia, Health Anxiety, Depression, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and Phobias.
I have over 10 years of experience working with adults to overcome mental health problems. CBT is an ideal treatment for those who are looking to change, whether that be to make some changes in the way in which you think about things, or some changes in the way in which you do things day to day. CBT can also help clients come to an understanding of 'why', E.G. what is it about you, your experiences & vulnerabilities which perhaps help explain why you struggle. This is often validating & helpful rather than self blaming. Together we will equip you with the skills and understanding you need in order to move forward with confidence.
