Arranging an initial meeting via my website www.karenwpsychotherapy.co.uk is easy. You will be invited to my rooms in Midhurst for a consultation, where we can discuss how best we can work together and importantly think about your past and present and why you have come to therapy and why now? There is no commitment, and the consultation usually takes about an hour. At the consultation we discuss your expectations of therapy, whether you are best suited to open ended or time limited therapy etc.
Hello, I am a fully qualified Psychoanalytic Psychodynamic Adult Psychotherapist. I have experience of working within the NHS, University Counselling Departments and London clinics, both face to face and via Zoom.
I understand how difficult it can be to take the first step into therapy. However, by understanding our past, having room to reflect on our experiences and how it influences our way of living in the present we can discover how things can be different, leading to a more fulfilling life. My experience has shown me how much anxiety, depression and trauma can effect our way of living and the negative impact it has upon our health both mentally and physically.
We are often unaware of the issues that cause us problems. It may be trauma related which includes childhood neglect, physical or sexual abuse. Or perhaps there is an acute event such as loss of a loved one or something else that is impacting you now which is causing anxiety or/and depression for example.
Like all UKCP registered psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors I can work with a wide range of issues, but here are some areas in which I have a special interest or additional experience.
