Karen Boram Counselling & Psychotherapy

‘21 Certificate of Excellence

Who am I: First of all, "welcome" and thank you for taking time to read my profile and my way of helping and/or supporting you in a therapeutic journey of self discovery and change, whether that be for yourself or yourself and a partner. I am a fully qualified and experienced integrative counsellor and psychotherapist and a registered member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP). My work is to help overcome challenges which are overwhelming and to deal with issues of identity, difference and diversity. My passion is working with clients to help bring some clarity and balance into their lives, giving them permission to explore their life, be in touch with their feelings and to help with their own personal growth and self development. My philosophy of counselling is based on the person as a whole - working on the mind, body and the emotions. My role as a counsellor is to guide and help a client along the journey of change by providing a safe place to promote a deep inner healing to help restore trust and harmony in ones 'self' and other relationships. Bringing more self awareness brings with it contentment and a walk through life with more focus, purpose and positivity. The approach I use is individual for each client, dependent on my client's personality, story and emotional need. My counselling model is an eclectic blend of different elements of models or therapies ie. psychodynamic, humanistic and Intercultural and if required some initial grounding using mindfulness or focussing, alongside breathing techniques. What to expect: Counselling can be daunting and uncomfortable for some clients, so I will ease you slowly into the session by actively listening to your story in a non-judgemental and confidential setting. This first session will give you an insight into the world of counselling as a tool for providing you with a new perspective on and solutions to your issues. We will work together to focus on bringing clarity into your thoughts by reducing confusion which then allows for effective decisions. Decisions then lead to positive changes in behaviour. Work experience: Working with a key West Kent based registered charity, helping and supporting those affected by domestic abuse. Giving face to face support with detailed risk assessment and putting into place safety planning for clients. NHS Counselling work at two GP surgeries helping clients with presenting issues to include trauma, abuse, depression, anxiety and relationship and gender issues (both for individuals and couples). College counsellor supporting and counselling students with emotional and diverse presenting issues. Most of my counselling work is from my private practice at my counselling room based near Sevenoaks, Kent.

What do you love most about your job?

The uniqueness of an individual is my passion and to be able to help someone focus and challenge their energy to change their mindset is inspiring.

The word 'inspiring' itself means believing in themselves and believing in others.

What inspired you to start your own business?

To have more flexibility with time for clients and to be in the comfort of my own therapy room, which I have made into a calm and peaceful place in order to encourage and promote grounding and clarity in my client's mind.

Why should our clients choose you?

I am a qualified female psychotherapist and counsellor with an empathic mind and a skill of listening to my clients story. Depending on the narrative, I can either be directed by my client or can be directive using an integrative approach to bring together different elements of specific models or therapies ie. psychodynamic, humanistic and Intercultural.

Can you provide your services online or remotely? If so, please add details.

I provide counselling services either remotely or face-to-face - whatever suits your needs.

What changes have you made to keep your customers safe from Covid-19?

The Government have advised that a number of services are able to stay open such as the NHS and other medical supporting services - it is considered vital that anyone who needs any kind of health or mental care comes forward and seeks help.

I will be closely monitoring and adhering to the national restrictions and guidelines in order to protect my clients, this will include the following:

* hands - asking all clients to use hand sanitiser on arrival which will be provided.
* distancing - wearing a face covering when entering and exiting the counselling room - this can then be removed when seated
* space - the size of the counselling room allows myself and my client to be seated 2 metres apart
* ventilation - the counselling room will be ventilated by keeping the window slightly open

I will be unable to offer my clients water so I suggest that you bring your own bottled water.

Therapist FAQs

This will vary according to the level of experience and training that the therapist holds.

This will depend on where you live, what level of training your therapist has and what they specialise in (whether they are a counsellor, psychotherapist or psychologist) and also how many years of working experience they have.

Your professional therapist will be able to advise you on the full range of therapies available and will be able to help you select the best one to suit your needs. They will also be able to answer any questions you may have. Use Bark to get free quotes and find a trusted therapist today.

You need to devote some time to finding the right therapist as the connection you have with your therapist is essential. You need someone who you can trust, someone you feel comfortable talking to about difficult subjects and intimate secrets, someone who will be a partner in your recovery. Therapy will not be effective unless you have this bond, so take some time in the beginning to find the right person.

It is worth talking to a few potential therapists and asking questions. Therapists also have special areas of focus, such as depression or eating disorders. For some issues, such as trauma or PTSD, seeing a specialist is absolutely essential.

Everyone’s treatment is different. How long your therapy lasts depends on many factors.

You may be offered a single session of counselling, a short course of sessions over a few weeks or months or a longer course that lasts for several months or years.

It can take a number of sessions before you start to see progress but you should gradually start to feel better with the help and support of your trusted Bark therapist.

Professional counsellor training takes three to five years and can be a diploma or degree level. Qualification requires a minimum number of client hours acquired through a work placement.

You may also want to ask for testimonials of their recent work. You could also look at their profile page on Bark and Bark can show you reviews from past customers who have used their therapy.

Therapy has repeatedly and consistently helped patients with a whole host of issues. It can help with mental health conditions such as depression, anxiety or an eating disorder. Or it can help with an upsetting physical health condition such as infertility, a difficult life event such as a bereavement or a relationship breakdown. It can also be used to tackle difficult emotions such as low self-esteem, anger or sexual identity issues. Therapists also offer couples therapy. Therapists can also help with anxiety issues deriving from the coronavirus.

Absolutely! Many therapists offer sessions over the phone or through an online video chat platform, so you can have a session from the comfort of your own home - all you need is a strong internet connection and you're good to go.
