About

Have you been struggling with anxiety or depression for some time now? Are the things that you use to manage your thoughts and feelings not working as well as they used to? Are you worried that you may be losing control of your life and that others around you are suffering because of it? Are you finding it hard to sleep because you cannot switch off your mind? Do you want to be be able to handle those difficult thoughts and feelings and be able to live again rather than just existing? If that sounds familiar, psychological therapy can help.
Hello! My name is Karen Hawkings and I am a psychologist with over 12 years experience of providing therapy for a variety of problems such as depression, anxiety, insomnia, OCD, PTSD. I specialise in working with psychological trauma. I primarily use Acceptance and Commitment Therapy as a basic therapeutic foundation ( a form of CBT), as well as EMDR.
We work together as a team to help you accomplish goals related to what is important in your life. My therapeutic stance is one of client and therapist “being in the same boat”, striving to compassionately and respectfully work together to construct a life worth living. I see clients in comfortable clinic rooms in Chester, Bangor and on Anglesey
