What is Counselling and Psychotherapy?

Counselling usually deals with present issues that are worked through with a supportive and thorough discussion. Counselling is more concerned with immediate life situations that have caused confusion or distress. Psychotherapy is a form of treatment that goes deeper and is usually longer-term than counselling. It can help to uncover and change a person’s entrenched beliefs and behaviours which have had a negative impact on their life and relationships. The goal of psychotherapy is to increase a person’s self-awareness by examining their unconscious patterns. Nobody is immune to some of life’s difficult periods, and having support is crucial towards better mental health. As a counsellor, I love to see children and adults gain the strength they need to overcome personal challenges.

The Counsellor

Hello everyone, I’m Karen! I’ve been working with children for 30 years as a teacher, both in Australia and overseas, and in primary schools and high schools. I’m also a counsellor/psychotherapist with experience in working with carers, in an alcohol and drug service and more recently with clients referred through job services. I could be described as a generalist counsellor. As a member of PACFA, I use a range of modalities to tailor counselling sessions for the client. Person-centred counselling, brief solution-focused, narrative therapy and cognitive behavior therapy are some examples of the approaches that I like to use, as my clients report that they feel heard, understood and supported through whatever challenges they face. My qualifications include:

  • Diploma of Education (Primary)
  • Graduate Diploma of Counselling
  • Master of Counselling and Psychotherapy

If you’re unsure of anything or have any questions, please call me for a no-obligation 10 minute phone conversation. Some private health care funding may be available.
