I have included some client feedback comments here for you to have a look at taken from several people I have helped recently. All feedback was given after completion of our work together and consent was given for me to use the comments for this purpose-names have been changed to protect client confidentiality.
" I have worked with Karen for the last four years and I can honestly say this investment in myself is one that I will never regret. Karen met me at a time when I was ‘rock bottom’. Depression, grieving loss and low self-esteem had finally snowballed into one big dark cloud and I didn’t know how to rescue myself. Karen helped me work through a whole facet of life experiences and relationships to make sense of who I am. Ultimately, through her own empathy, insight and genuine care she transformed the way I see my world and my relationships. I am confident that I will never be under that darkest cloud again as she has helped me develop a mental ‘toolkit’ of coping strategies and tactics that I will take forward into my next life chapters. Thank you Karen."-Sarah
"I have known Karen for several months, during a very painful period of my life where I became utterly confused and lost. Before meeting Karen I was very skeptical, as it is far too easy to fall into the trap of stereotypes , and also as a male, possibly more difficult due to ego, to admit you need help and support at all. Karen literally saved me from a situation that was tearing me apart inside and I certainly don't say this lightly and certainly not for effect just for the benefit of this testimonial. I am writing this to sincerely express my appreciation for a person that genuinely helped me through am extremely difficult time and to ensure whomever reads this understands there is indeed support out there and that Karen is not just fully qualified by her educational credentials but by her personal sincerity and desire to listen to you , and to support you, when you are at your most vulnerable. Very few people can you honestly declare have changed your life, Karen is certainly among them. Thank you!"-Paul
"Karen has a fantastic style- warm, accepting, and supportive. She gave me huge encouragement and belief, helping me create a space to understand myself and my experiences. Depending on the content and stage of the therapy, Karen was there to provide empathy and understanding, to share reflections, ask key questions, and on occasions to laugh with me-all evidence of the strength of the connection we were able to establish. The time spent together was transformational for my personal growth and my internalisation of the experience will help this continue for years to come. I would highly recommend Karen as a therapist"-Rich
"On my first meeting with Karen she asked me what I hoped to gain from therapy. I answered "peace". I was at a point in my life where I felt desperate and I could not see how to resolve the family situation that was making me so miserable. Karen was extremely warm and kind and she made me feel safe and able to tell her anything and everything. She listened to me without judgement and helped me understand why I felt the way I did.She has a wonderful way of making you feel valued and she encouraged me to believe in myself and trust my own judgement. She has guided me towards the peace the I now feel and I am incredibly grateful to her for all she has done for me"-Susie
"Counselling and Psychotherapy has been a great experience and has helped me in so many ways. Just needing someone to talk to and know that I have that was what really helped. I could trust Karen, I've never been able to trust easily. Karen was and is great, and I couldn't thank her enough. She made me feel so comfortable and welcome. Thank you"-Rachel
"I found that Counselling was one of the best choices of my life, Karen has helped me greatly. Thank you so much"-Carl
" I thought Karen was extremely helpful, professional and understanding. She helped me overcome barriers I didn't think possible!-Lindsay
