Karen Booth is a grounded and professional counsellor with many years’ experience working with a range of clients from young adults, women, men, couples and the LGBTQI community. Karen’s extensive experience is across a broad range of concerns including addiction, trauma, grief and loss, chronic illness, sexuality, relationships, anxiety and depression, survivors of childhood trauma and childhood sexual abuse, stress (including PTSD) and anger management.
Karen currently runs a private practice, is a trainer for other counselling practitioners in Hypnotherapy and is an accredited Work Cover counsellor. Karen’s approach is based on Gestalt Therapy which is a form of counselling that appreciates the individual in their entirety. Karen understands the interconnectedness of the past, present and future and also the physical, emotional and spiritual nature of her clients.
Karen works dynamically, exploring ways of being and relating with the self and others in the here and now, through recognising and changing life patterns. She bases her therapeutic relationships with clients on mutual respect and curiosity, rather than her own expertise. The client is the expert and Karen will encourage you to access your own wisdom.
Karen uses an integrated, client-centred approach and tailors each session to meet the clients’ personal therapeutic needs. Karen incorporates many contemporary models of counselling into her counselling sessions, including: Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Process-Oriented Therapy, Mindfulness, and Solution-Focused Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Psych-education and Contemporary Trauma Therapy. Karen also uses Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) to explore the relationships between how we think, how we communicate and our patterns of behaviour and emotion. This is a powerful tool for change, that transforms the way people think and act.
Karen Booth has appointments available in the following location: North Sydney
