Karin is an experienced counsellor and has been working with clients since 2005. Karin believes in providing a confidential space, free from judgement, allowing you to talk openly about the issues which are causing you difficulty. This warm and professional relationship supports you as you discover new ways to deal with the difficulties which have brought you into counselling.
There are a number of approaches that Karin uses within the Humanistic model of counselling, which focuses on the open and trusting relationship between the counsellor and the client, these include:
ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy), Mindfulness, CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) and NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming).
Life is difficult, relationships are challenging and pain and suffering are inevitable, yet we try to avoid this inevitability. Karin believes that by understanding and changing the way we relate to difficult and uncomfortable thoughts and feelings, we can allow them to come and go without struggling with them.
