If you’ve arrived here, you may be finding life hard right now and wondering if counselling or psychotherapy might help you.

You may be experiencing relationship difficulties or stress at home or at work. You may be going through a life transition, job loss, illness, bereavement or divorce or perhaps you are worried about a loved one.

Perhaps you are troubled by memories of painful experiences in your past.

Possibly, you feel anxious, alone and in need of support.

Possibly, you’re ready to make some changes and are unsure how or where to begin.

I hope that by reading this you will decide therapy can help you and that you contact me to arrange a free consultation.

These are some of the reasons you might decide to start therapy with me

  • You’re finding it difficult to cope with pressures at home, work or university.

  • You find yourself procrastinating and struggle to make progress with important assignments, creative work or career decisions.

Karen Nolan Counselling and Psychotherapy

I am a psychotherapist and counsellor based in Greater Manchester. Currently, I work online and by telephone with people from across the UK.  I offer you a safe, confidential space where you will be heard, accepted and supported to achieve the changes that you want for yourself.

All of us experience difficult periods in our lives, health issues, family tensions, career setbacks, disappointments and losses. During these times pressures can build up, we feel overwhelmed and our motivation and sense of wellbeing are affected.

If this is happening to you, then you may be feeling tired, distracted and unable to concentrate. You may have lost interest in things you used to enjoy and avoid seeing friends. Perhaps you feel irritable and short-tempered with colleagues and family.

You may be feeling sad, depressed or anxious and finding it difficult to cope. Psychotherapy can help you explore what is happening in your life, make connections between past and present, gain fresh perspectives and find a way forward.


Journey Together

If any of this sounds like what you’re experiencing right now, then starting to think about how you might sort things out can feel daunting and can bring a huge sense of relief. Psychotherapy offers a scaffold to support you as you take those first steps and begin to imagine how your life might be, if your current difficulties were eased.

As your therapist, I will be there to accompany you on your journey, supporting you to process your feelings, gain clarity, explore possibilities and discover new ways of being.

I am an experienced and ethical counsellor and psychotherapist, a registered member of BACP (the British Association for Counsellors and Psychotherapists) and a trainee member of UKCP (the UK Council for Psychotherapy). If you would like to talk to me about starting therapy please get in touch to arrange a confidential telephone consultation or continue exploring the site to find out more about how I work.
