We all need support, yet so many of us go through life feeling unsupported. With counselling, you don't have to go through things alone.

I offer a respectful safe place, where you can be without fear of judgement so we can explore the things in your life that need support. Some people find it helpful to talk through early experiences; which may still impact their lives emotionally. Others find it more helpful to focus on solutions and practical ways to bring about change. Together we can find a way that works best for you.

My approach is gentle and patient, giving you space to explore whilst holding it so you feel supported. I work at your pace, in your time, by your clock. Being an integrative counsellor/therapist, I use a mix of different approaches tailored to your individual needs. All the work we do is based on us forming a good relationship, with trust and honesty.

Taking the first step to contact me might be hard, I offer a free initial telephone consultation. This gives us both the opportunity to decide how we might work together. Reduced rates are available depending on personal circumstances and session availability.

Therapy with Karin gives you a safe space to explore what's on your mind in a constructive and thoughtful way. Sessions are tailored to your needs and are flexible to support you through life's surprises.
I work with young people aged 14 upwards, adults and couples.
I identify as black british and welcome clients from all faiths, genders and sexual orientations.
