Throughout her professional journey, she has adeptly navigated the intricacies of mental health, empathising with the challenges individuals face when contemplating that pivotal first step towards seeking therapeutic support.
Understanding the hesitations and fears associated with delving into one’s past, Karen acknowledges the profound impact that unresolved issues can have on present-day behaviours. Whether grappling with addiction, alcoholism, pornography, gambling, neglect, abuse, loneliness, intricate parental relationships, challenges in friendships, or the debilitating effects of depression, anxiety, panic, PTSD, and sexual abuse, Karen recognises the intricate web of emotions that individuals may grapple with.
These issues, often unnoticed by the individuals experiencing them, can significantly shape life experiences and contribute to an overarching sense of depression or anxiety. Psychotherapy, in Karen’s view, serves as a transformative tool, enabling individuals to comprehend the underlying reasons for repeating destructive patterns of behaviour. The therapeutic process unfolds in the secure and non-judgemental environment that Karen strives to provide, ultimately facilitating the exploration and understanding necessary for meaningful change and the pursuit of a more fulfilling life.
