SOME OF THE PROCESSES YOU MAY EXPERIENCE DURING OUR THERAPEUTIC ALLIANCE……
The goal of Gestalt therapy is for the client to collaborate with the therapist to increase personal awareness, and with awareness comes restoration of choice. By actively exploring the roadblocks that have been getting in the way until now. No need to revisit the past. The therapeutic relationship itself is based on mutual respect and curiosity rather than one of ‘expert cure’.
It’s a style of therapy that is humanistic in nature. In other words, the approach focuses on the person and the uniqueness of their experience. New ways of relating and living are explored in the present moment experience and involve creative experimentation to explore, heighten awareness, and try new ways of authentic being……
Progressive Muscle Relaxation guided by a Clinical Hypnotherapist directs the mind to a state of focused attention, a state of inner absorption and concentration. By passing outer and habitual distractions, and limiting beliefs. When our minds are concentrated and focused, we are able to use them more powerfully by harnessing this unused potential and increase natural intelligence……
NLP & Body Psychotherapy
Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) explores the relationships between how we think (neuro), how we communicate (linguistic) and our patterns of behaviour and emotion (programmes). In effect, NLP is a powerful change management tool that transforms the way people think and act.
NLP is how to use the mind’s own language to change our internal sensory-based representations to consistently achieve our specific and desired outcomes……….

Karen has a unique skill set which has given me results, unlike any other therapist. I highly recommend her to anybody who is ready to do the work. Every session I've walked away feeling lighter. I've found her easy to trust, nonjudgmental, and grounded.
After 20 years of seeing counsellors, I have rarely come across a therapist who specialises in such a powerful tool like gestalt. I've been seeing Karen for a few months & the results are incredible. I'm experiencing an integration of myself at significant ages with who I am now. That feels very liberating & has created more space emotionally to be able to make healthy choices.
I arrived to Karen as a total skeptic and leave as an advocate. Having a psychology degree and having worked in the counselling field, it takes a lot to impress me. She was able to get results from the first session and only 6 intensive sessions before I was happy with the progress and wanted to slow the pace to adjust. Having visited 4 other psychologists in my time to assist with grief and trauma, this has by far had the most impact.
