Hello my name is Karla Rumens and I work predominately as a Person-Centred Counsellor Supervisor and Trainer here in Guernsey along with experience of being part of a Tutor Team.
"The key to transformation is to make friends with this moment, what form it takes doesn't matter, say yes to it, allow it, be with it"
I first became interested in counselling 22 years ago in 2001 after undertaking a certificate in 'Communication and Counselling' Skills. This furthered my interest when I had the opportunity to undertake further training for a Diploma in Integrative Counselling.
I aim to provide you with a warm open and confidential space for you to explore any issues that may be troubling you in a safe & peaceful environment.
As well as working with adults I am also proud to be on The National Counselling Society's additional 'Specialised Sub Register' as a Children And Young Persons Therapist - CYPT which requires me to have demonstrated specific competencies to enable me to work within this area.
This is in addition to my work with adults.
