Karen is a UKCP Registered Psychotherapist, and Somatic Experiencing Practitioner. She is also a member of the College of Sound Healing, and the international community of Flow Game hosts.
With over 16 years clinical experience working with individuals and groups, Karen has developed a unique approach integrating Psychotherapy, Somatic Experiencing ®, EMDR, Brainspotting, Sound Healing and the Flow Game. She also works with the arts therapeutically.
Whilst Karen hosts conversations for individuals in all kinds of distress, her special interest is in helping people find relief and recovery from the symptoms of stress, trauma and PTSD. Her clinical experience includes six years as a member of London Underground’s Counselling and Trauma Service, and the role of Clinical Lead at a trauma recovery centre.
Karen has worked with ex British Military and special services personnel, London Underground’s train drivers, Police Officers, Firefighters and Paramedics, in addition to many members of the general public. She has provided services for the NHS, is a registered practitioner for Aviva and Vitality Health Insurance, and currently consults for the counselling team at Occupational Health, Gloucestershire County Council.
When Karen isn’t working, her passion for both art and nature finds her either in a gallery or in her garden. Karen writes poetry, plays Gongs, and lives happily with her canine companions. And just like other people she occasionally surfs the hidden dimensions of the sofa.
