Coming to counselling can feel a little daunting; sharing some of our private thoughts and feelings with someone that we do not know can be hard and can feel a little strange. I will help to make you feel comfortable and at ease by offering you a safe, confidential space for you to talk openly, and at a pace that suits you. I am committed to ensuring that you will feel heard, accepted and understood and I will make every effort to appreciate what it is like to be you and to help you understand your feelings and emotions.

People come to therapy for many different and important reasons. For some it is to discuss difficult and emotional experiences, while for others its to have a space in their week to reflect and make time to check-in with themselves. I ask all my clients to come with an open-mind as therapy can take you on a journey of self-discovery. I have worked with many clients with varying degrees of personal difficulties; severe and mild distress including depression, anxiety, suicide, low-self-esteem, earlier life trauma, PTSD, relational difficulties and many more.

ISTDP is particularly useful in attending to internal conflicts that can arise from interpersonal relationships.

Sometimes life and the problems that arise can seem confusing even overwhelming particularly at the moment. If you are struggling with making sense of what you are feeling counselling may begin to help you to understand what is going on for you. Or maybe you are living with uncertainty, anxiety, low self-esteem, relationship issues or have endured a trauma during childhood or as an adult. Whatever is making you feel empty, incomplete, dissatisfied or anxious let's explore these feelings together in a safe, empathetic, non-judgmental and confidential space so that you don't have to be afraid of these feelings any longer.

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.

One of the main things that I love about my counselling work is the unique opportunity it gives me to be alongside and encourage you in the good times and bad times. I strongly believe that life should not be a lonely journey and I value the relationship element of counselling above all else. We can all at times be surrounded by others but feel completely alone in our thoughts or our troubles, not wanting to burden those we love. Through my work I have the privilege to travel alongside people as they bravely face their issues, creating with them moments of sanctuary in which they can gain perspective and find their way.

My own experiences of therapy have taught me that my own change and growth became possible when i could open and relax into a felt sense of trust and safety. I appreciate that if you are struggling now or have suffered in the past- to open yourself up to- and risk trusting another might bring mixed feelings of hope and fear. Yet, to take a step into the unknown is the invitation and challenge of therapy. I have been a client; in my experience the risk i took set out upon the adventure of counselling has been an acceptable one and the rewards are great.

Having the time and space within counselling to explore your thoughts and feelings in a safe and confidential environment is often the first step in making positive change in someone’s life. Our problems can sometimes feel too big or heavy to carry ourselves. Often it’s hard to pinpoint what’s actually wrong, but that low mood, and anxiety over powers us. Counselling will help you understand your behaviours and emotions that little bit better and give you insight into why you may be finding things difficult. With this understanding, it is often the catalyst for positive change leading to a more balanced and healthy future.

I work with people who are experiencing some stress or anxiety, feeling depressed, and also the common problem that 'something isn't right but I can't quite work out what'. I can help you develop coping strategies and process what's happening until you get back to a position where you feel happy and in control of your own life. I have a particular interest in working with sexual abuse and trauma. I also enjoy working with student counsellors - please get in touch to discuss arrangements.
