Welcome, and thank you for taking a moment to consider how we might embark on a journey of healing and growth together. I'm Karine and I aim to create a supportive and empathetic space where clients can openly explore their thoughts and feelings, working together towards healing and personal growth. A space to explore your thoughts and feelings, where your voice is heard and valued. Throughout my career, I have dedicated myself to working with both adults and young people from diverse backgrounds, assisting them with a range of issues such as anxiety, depression, stress, and relationship difficulties.

People at times regard seeking counselling as a weakness, however in my view it actually shows great strength to seek support when you are facing issues in your life. Having the courage to look 'inside yourself' is the first step. Working together, I will be there to provide a safe and confidential environment in which we can explore a way forward together. It is a privilege to have acquired the skills to support people who are facing challenges such as: Relationship issues; Stress; Psychological Trauma and PTSD; Anxiety/Depression; Anger issues; Bereavement & Loss; & Phobias

Hello and welcome! My name is Alex and I offer in-person sessions in Reading (town centre), or online via zoom. I am a fully qualified, BACP-registered, counsellor with a proven track record of helping people work through all kinds of problems. I think that part of the problem we all share is that we grew up in a society that didn't really understand human emotions. Thus, we quickly learned that emotions are a problem and that the only proper way of dealing with them is to shut them off, brush them under the carpet and put on a brave face.

We sometimes experience moments in our lives when we may question ourselves, and therapy provides a way to voice those thoughts in a supported space. With warmth and empathy I strive to establish a strong therapeutic alliance based on trust and mutual respect, aiming to empower you to overcome obstacles, develop healthier coping strategies and cultivate a greater sense of self awareness and fulfilment. Hopefully we can work together to achieve this.

Therapy provides a place in which to safely explore thoughts and feelings free from the fear of judgement. My aim, as a therapist, is to empower my clients to live their lives as they wish, free from mental tension. I believe that the emotionally wounded deserve acceptance and compassion. I recognise that sometimes there are dark days. I integrate Person-Centred and Psychodynamic theories into my counselling.

Hi, I’m Debbie. I don’t yet know why you need my help. Maybe you suffer from anxiety, lack of confidence, self-doubt, a debilitating phobia, panic attacks, PTSD or Trauma. Maybe you can't quite put your finger on it but just know you want to feel different and better. More whole? Be more part of life rather than an observer? Less lonely? No longer held back? Perhaps you've tried many times to make permanent changes and haven't yet succeeded.

Hello. I'm Penny and I offer short or long-term therapy with an integrative approach. Is there something that is troubling you? Something you’d like to talk through, but with someone outside of family or friends? Perhaps you’re asking yourself some questions about who you are, what is going on in your life, or about the relationships you have? Maybe your feelings seem overwhelming, or you can’t identify what emotions you’re experiencing? Whatever issue you’d like to bring to counselling it is my hope that you will find some clarity and peace

I don't have an ideal client as I see each person as unqiue with their own set of issues and needs. I aim to explore with the client the issues they are currently experiencing and then would aim to facilitate the client to identify their needs and then explore how to establish realistic expectations of themselves and others. When we have done this I would help the client to establish their own goals and identify ways to achieve this. I would employ a variety of methods to do this based on the individual's needs so we may focus on understanding the past and its impact on the present or we may focus on the here and now issues.
