For over twenty-eight years I have provided counselling and Social Work services in hospital and community settings across Australia, with people experiencing many different emotional and physical health challenges. I am passionate about helping people address stressful feelings and emotions regarding past or current experiences, to gain clarity, make clearer choices and feel better.
Down to earth and judgement free, my approach is focused on how stress and/or trauma is impacting your physical and emotional health. Supporting you in making the changes you want and need to move forward in your life.
The pace of appointments is guided by you. You are the expert in your situation and I am guided by this. I believe we all have the answers we are seeking if given the opportunity to unpack and clarify what is getting in the way.
The most common feedback people provide at the end of appointments is they feel calmer, the issue they came in with doesn't feel like so much of an issue anymore, and they have a greater sense of clarity about what to do next.
Expressive art techniques
If you are someone who prefers to express themselves creatively or perhaps finds it too difficult or painful to talk about your experiences, then be sure to ask about the option of using expressive art techniques. These techniques provide a way to safely explore emotions and memories and get to the core of the issue without necessarily needing to talk about the event or concern. No art experience is required as the process is about self-expression through simple mark making rather than creating a piece of art.
If you are ready to move forward in your life, contact me today to book an appointment or find out more. Please don't hesitate to reach out if you have any questions. I look forward to connecting with you. Karen Northey Trauma informed Counsellor and Therapist EFT Practitioner (Emotional Freedom Techniques) Social Worker
