COGNITIVE BEHAVIOuRAL THERAPY

How do you work?
I work with individuals and work either face to face or via Skype with sessions an hour long.  I work within the guidelines set by B.A.C.P. to insure good practice with all therapy confidential. 

Who can benefit from counselling & psychotherapy?
People and children of all ages, backgrounds, religions, races and cultures can benefit from counselling. We all experience times when we feel different, lost or isolated or find it difficult to get motivated about anything. However, you can significantly benefit from talking to someone who is empathic, impartial, kind and non-judgemental.

What will happen next?
I will arrange to meet for an initial consultation so that we can explore your needs, expectations and goals. I will also conduct an assessment of your presenting problem to determine the best way of helping you.

How long will therapy take?
The length of therapy is determined by your goals and presenting problem. Therapy sessions would normally be on a weekly basis. I will try and meet at the same time on the same day every week to suit your schedule. I have daytime, evening and weekend sessions available.

CBT can have very effective results in short periods of time. Short-term and long-term therapy is available.

How much will it cost?
The cost for an individual 60 minute session is £50.  Payment can be either made in advance or  at the end of every session with cash, cheque or bank transfer. 

Where will the sessions be held?
All counselling sessions are held at my Private Practice in Lisvane, Cardiff, CF14 0UP. 
In special circumstances home visits can be accommodated.

How do I make an appointment?
To arrange an initial session either call or text on 07971902155 or email at cbtwithkaren@gmail.com.


What to do if I am at risk and feeling suicidal?

If you are at immediate risk, then go and see your GP today and if they are not available present yourself at A & E at your local hospital.
