Welcome to Finding You. We are an empathic, confidential, professional, BACP registered counselling psychotherapy practice based in Bishops Stortford East Herts.
Karen founder of Finding You has many years experience working with charities supporting people living with the more debilitating mental health issues such as schizophrenia and bipolar. She also has over thirteen years experience in supporting/providing emotional support to parents/carers of children who have special needs. And for a number of years worked as a counsellor for a local GP surgery and as a counsellor tutoring on AQA counselling courses.
Having a specialist interest in supporting couples; heterosexual and gay to keep the intimacy and love alive in their relationships i now specialise in couples therapy marriage and relationship work. I have undertaken a cutting edge two year post graduate couples therapy course at the Centre For Gender Psychology in London. And am committed to undertake further specialist training in this area.
When you walk in to our consultancy room for the first time we are very aware of how anxious and nervous you may feel and what a huge step that this may be for you. You will receive a warm and friendly welcome and we will aim to make you feel comfortable, safe, relaxed and secure. We will be more than happy to answer any questions that you may have and provide you with any further information that you may need. The final judge of whether a counsellor is right for you can only be yourself and you must trust your own instincts.
Finding You counselling practice moved from Stanstead Abbotts to Bishops Stortford March 2012. Our consultancy room is now based in the stunning, peaceful, historical Old Monastery, on Windhill. This move allowed us to expand and focus on building up our now thriving couples therapy counselling practice in Bishops Stortford.
The Monastery’s original entrance, in Windhill leads to a small quadrangle, now called The Courtyard, and since 1994 part of the building has been home to the Town Council and various small businesses.
The Old Monastery is an extremely peaceful and private place in which to work and is an ideal place to have a counselling practice. We are located near Bishops Stortford town centre. The nearest car park to us is in Basbow Lane, situated next to Bishops Stortford police station. Please see our contact page for further details.
