Hello my name is Karla Rumens and I work predominately as a Person-Centred Counsellor here in Guernsey.
"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 20 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.
