Hello, and welcome to my website! Let me introduce myself. My name is Karen, and I have a healing room in Queens Road, Tunbridge Wells, UK. I also have a long string of letters after my name, the most important of which is probably the MICHM - this means that I am a member of the International College of Holistic Medicine.
So, what can I help you with? Given the wide range of therapies in which I am qualified, the quick answer is - lots of things! If you don't see what you're looking for in the following list, do ask, as the list doesn't include everything (it would be a very long page if it did!).
- Fears, phobias, anxieties
- Weight control
- Pain management
- Spiritual and self development issues
- Stress management and relaxation techniques
- Obsessive Compulsive Disorders
- Reactive Depression (ie depression caused by a known life event/s)
- Self-esteem and confidence issues, including performance anxiety, eg exam nerves, public speaking
- Stop smoking
- Grief and loss
- Some fertility issues
- Setting and achieving goals and aims
Why should you come to me instead of someone else? I've been helping friends and family with a variety of issues - physical, mental, emotional and spiritual - for many years, and have often been told that I am 'wise', and would 'make a good counsellor'. However, as studying for a formal counselling qualification any higher than those I already have (Level 2 qualifications in Counselling Skills and Counselling Children and Young People) is both costly and time-consuming, I have decided to leave this plan for a future date. But I do have qualifications in a number of therapy modalities, and there's almost certainly one or more that can help you.
My philosophy is that while there is a therapy to suit everyone, no single therapy can cover all possible needs. I also have a strong belief in treating all areas of a person's mind, body and spirit in a holistic way. So, in order to be able to treat all my clients in the best possible ways for them, I have achieved a wide range of qualifications in a variety of complementary therapies.
I am also awaiting the results of my Hypnotherapy course, and will hopefully be qualified shortly. Watch this space, as I am always studying for something! This is partly so that I have more therapies available to help my clients, and partly because I am endlessly curious, about life, the universe and everything, and particularly the ways in which humans can be healed, lift their energies, and generally make their lives happier and more comfortable.
Most of my therapies can be delivered and/or discussed in person or via the telephone or internet (some would be delivered by distant healing, ie Reiki and Spiritual Healing). Most can be combined with other therapies in a holistic treatment session or a series of sessions, and many complement each other very well. For instance, crystals can enhance a Reiki session, when gridded around the therapy couch or held or placed on the body; flower remedies can help to reinforce the positive intentions formed in a coaching session; and a short Spiritual Healing session at the end of a stress management session can help to send you on yoru way feeling thoroughly relaxed and refreshed.
Distant healing can be sent to you or to someone else, but it is best to ask the other person’s permission before healing is sent, for it to have the greatest effect.
I have a wide range of books on spiritual and complimentary therapy subjects, which I can lend to clients if required, and I also have a number of tarot and oracle decks and can help with intuitive readings. If you have a particular question to ask, I may not be able to provide the answer, as that may be something only you can find, but I can help to point you in the right direction.
Please also take a look at my Products page for details of a flower remedy I have developed myself, as well as Reiki-attuned crystal jewellery to help you connect to the healing energies of Reiki even if you are unable to attend for a session.
Whatever your issues, I am here to help. With a wide variety of therapies available, I hope to have something for everyone!
