Hi, my name is Karen Harrison, I remember searching just like you are now. Accessing counselling whether it’s your first time or not can be a difficult step to make…

“Do I really need help? Is it as bad as I feel ? Shall I just call and see what they say? Who is the best one to contact? Decisions, decisions!”

I do understand, and consider the steps you have made when I am contacted.

I offer a professional and confidential service to clients throughout Staffordshire, Cheshire, Derbyshire and Shropshire. My work over 15 years has been within charitable, public and private sectors. I also work with trainee Counsellor’s who attend from Keele, Staffordshire and Wolverhampton University, this may be as a Counsellor or Supervisor.

We shall draw from the heart of suffering itself the means of inspiration and survival. ‘Winston Churchill’

I am available by appointment. My experience has produced effective results with clients within the following areas of therapy: Anxiety, Depression, Phobia’s, Low Self-Confidence/Esteem, Relationships, Bereavement, Physical/Sexual Abuse, Trauma, OCD, Domestic Violence, Addiction, Nutritional Advice, Supervision and Work-related Issues.

I aim to help clients to live a happier and healthier life, so that they can achieve their goals. I am fully qualified, Accredited and insured, and work within the framework of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy. I am also a member of the EMDR Association for UK and Ireland.

We build too many walls and not enough bridges. ‘Issac Newton’

I have continued my professional development throughout my career and attend regular supervision in line with the BACP guidelines.
