My name is Karen and I am a qualified therapeutic counsellor. I imagine you are here because something in your life is troubling you, holding you back and preventing you from feeling secure, happy and fulfilled. Please be reassured that it is perfectly normal at certain points in our life to face difficulties that can leave us feeling distressed, out of control and overwhelmed, resulting in us suffering mentally, emotionally and physically. You may want to look at the past, work on the present or question what matters to you and decide on goals for the future. We often struggle alone with our problems but you don't have to....

I believe we are all susceptible, at some point in our lives, to feeling overwhelmed by what life can bring. Sometimes we encounter experiences that are hard for us to come to terms with leaving us in need of support, this may be in the form of a bereavement, a relationship breakdown, a job loss; any event that we struggle to comprehend and understand. Other times a series of events may have taken place that leave us feeling like we are walking under a big black cloud and fail to see a way forward. At times like this counselling can help.

As a non-binary therapist with a BAME and LGBTQIA background, I specialised in LGBTQIA -focused & life/gender transitioning counselling.
Have you ever been judged by just being who and what you are? Have you been disapproved of your sexuality, identity, gender identity, your life choices, and what and who you want to be? It is difficult to live our lives every day being questioned by our families, friends, or others. Maybe at times, even we started to ask ourselves, Am I “normal”? Am I doing the wrong thing? Should I just try to do what they want me to do, but can I? Am I passable enough or will I ever be? It feels natural to me, but why are they judging me for it? Most important of all, do I deserve to be happy by being myself and how could I ever achieve that?

I am a qualified person-centred counsellor and psychotherapist based in Manchester and offering online counselling to the UK. My approach is warm and friendly and I work with care and compassion. I offer a safe space, free from judgement, where you can be yourself and explore any issues that may be causing you confusion, discomfort or distress. You will decide what we talk about and we will always work at a pace that is comfortable for you. It is important, to me, that you feel at ease working with me, so I offer a free first session (50 minutes), so you can see how I work and decide whether you wish to continue.

I am part of the LGBT + community and identify as a cis gay man. As a consequence I have seen how life can throw many diverse LGBTQ -related challenges at us: loss, crisis, change - that cause us to question our sense of self. Yet I believe within these challenging times we have the ability to grow and develop - even flourish - through the untangling of our internal and external worlds: who we are, our authentic selves, others’ around us as well as the world in which we live.

Sometimes the challenges that we face can become too much. Maybe you've had enough of doing the same thing again and again in your relationships and life and don't know how to change. My practice can help you find a way through the despair or anger or sadness or flatness you're experiencing by working together in a way that suits you, personally. I believe that we can be damaged by the expectations of the world around us as well as by our earliest and most intimate relationships. Do get in touch at karenadlertherapy.com and let's see together how I can help you make the changes you desire.
