Donna Karpel - Counsellor
Bushey, Hertfordshire, Borehamwood WD6
When we are facing difficulties in our lives no matter how big or small, seeking counselling can be a safe place to talk about what is troubling you. I am a fully qualified experienced registerd member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy, and am here to sit alongside you without any judgment, offering a confidential space. I am warm, open and am naturally empathic, and can offer you a new way of looking at things. I will offer suggestions, sometimes be challenging if I feel this will be helpful to you, and come into your situation with fresh eyes, an open heart and much experience, and a strength to help you regain your sense of who you are. Ultimately you are the expert on you, but my aim is for us to work together to explore your present feelings and how the past and old wounds may be impacting on you now.
I am also a fully trained Samaritan and have lots of experience offering emotional support to people who are experiencing feelings of despair, distress, and suicidal thoughts.
I currently work with adolscents (16-19 year olds) as a school counsellor and work as a berevement counsellor within two different organisations, at the North London Hospice and at Grief Encounter.
I offer both long term and short term therapy, and am experienced in working with a range of issues varying from:- Anxiety, Depression, Bereavement, Panic Attacks, Relationship Issues, Post Traumatic Stress, Personal/Work related stress, Bullying, Exam Pressure, Abuse and Low self-esteem.
I charge £60 per session but I offer a reduced fee for those who can prove a low income and who are on benefits, as well as for students. I can also offer flexible times for counselling sessions during the daytime and some evening slots are available.

What do you love most about your job?
What I love most about being a counsellor is that it is a privelage to be able to accompany people on their jouney of self-understanding and change, and shine some light into their into their life. To be able to give people a new perspective on looking at things and wanting to help them to have more of a positive impact on their lives is deeply rewarding.
What inspired you to start your own business?
My desire to become a counsellor and start my own private practice was an easy decision to make as to be able to help and assist people with the challenges of daily living is such a strong passion of mine. I am passionate about self-discovery, exploration and healing, and being a therapist allows me to sit alongside people showing them support, compassion and care to encourage them to be their best and most authentic self.
Why should our clients choose you?
Clients should choose me because I am naturally a warm and empathic person, and genuinely want to help clients find a new positive direction in their lives. From having my own personal therapy many years previously I learnt that there is no shame in seeking counselling and in fact it can completely turn around ones life. As a result of my positive experience I have been able to go on and support many others through my positive change. My experience enabled me to pursue my true passion and gave my career a sense of meaning.
