COVID-19 Update

Face to Face appointments available. An online therapy service will be available for the foreseeable future.

The practice has been deep cleaned, re-decorated and reorganised to accommodate Covid social distancing guidelines. Pictures posted on latest news.

Hand Sanitizer is available as you enter the building and in my office. The office will be wiped down with antiseptic wipes between clients and cleaned on a daily basis.

The cleaning regime at the Monastery has been stepped up. Entrances, corridors, stairs, surfaces etc. are cleaned on a daily basis.

You may want to bring your own water. Bottled water is available.

If you have made a face to face appointment but feel at all unwell, please do not come to the practice we can work online instead. I will adhere to that as well.

Welcome to Finding You

Welcome to my website. I hope you find it easy to navigate, useful and helpful. I am Karen and I have been working in mental health for nearly two decades. I have taught trainee counsellors and I am a very experienced, highly qualified, psychotherapist/counsellor and have been running a highly successful, established private couple therapy and one to one counselling practice in Bishops Stortford for over twelve years.

You can now book appointments online and make payments through a secure Worldpay payment gateway. Concession rates are available, please ask, if eligible I will provide you with a concession code to apply at checkout. If you cant find an appointment time that works for you. Please give us a call and we will do our utmost to accommodate you.

When choosing a psychotherapist/counsellor please check their qualifications and make sure they are registered members of an accredited counselling organisation. Someone advertising themselves as a psychotherapist has normally trained for five years for that qualification. Someone advertising themselves as a counsellor has normally trained for three years for that qualification. Make sure yours has. Unfortunately, many who advertise that they are qualified psychotherapists/counsellors are not. Finding You is registered on the British Association Of Counsellors And Psychotherapists website (BACP)
