It's good to talk!
My name is Karen Chippett and I have been working as a Counsellor since 2000. I am fully qualified having achieved my Diploma in Person-Centered Counselling from Warwick University in 2000 and I am a Registered Member of BACP.
If you have found yourself here perhaps that is because something is troubling you and you are looking for a way forward. Counselling may well be the answer and I offer a free 30 minute initial consultation to talk through what is worrying you and to consider whether you feel that we could work together to try and understand your situation.
If this is the first time you have considered seeing a Counsellor you may be wondering what exactly counselling can offer you. Counselling is an opportunity for you to explore your situation with a trained, qualified and experienced Therapist who will support you in a non-judgmental, empathic and understanding way whilst in a confidential environment so that you feel safe and supported. The work that I offer can be either short or long term dependant upon your needs and would normally take place on a weekly basis. Counselling sessions are usually 50 minutes long and I will always do my best to try and make your appointments as convenient as possible. I offer daytime appointments.
I work both face to face in a private room in Poole or using online media such as Skype, FaceTime or WhatsApp offering a friendly, safe, sensitive and non-judgmental space where you can talk about the issues that are affecting your life.
I have experience in working with both adults and young people who are struggling with relationships, stress and anxiety, panic attacks, self esteem issues and bereavement. I also have experience in Pet bereavement.
As mentioned previously, I offer a friendly, sensitive, safe and non- judgmental space where you can explore the issues that are affecting your life. I have a very relaxed style of working whilst staying within professional boundaries. I receive regular Supervision to ensure that I am working safely and ethically and giving you the support that you need.
If you feel that talking to me might be helpful to you and you wish to make an appointment for your free 30 minute initial consultation please email me at , or call me on 07545 223381. If I am unable to answer your call please leave me a message and I will get back to you as soon as I can.
My fees are £35-£40 per session.
