Karen Sismey

Counsellor & Pyschotherapist


I am a Humanistic and Integrative counsellor and psychotherapist based in Warwickshire.  I work with individual adults to support and guide them in dealing with issues affecting their emotional well-being and mental health.  My humanistic and integrative approach encompasses an attitude of respect and empathy with an awareness of the relational nature of human beings.  My approach is rooted in my understanding and belief that our individual experiences in relation to significant others, particularly during childhood, impacts our psychological development and emotional well-being.

I believe each and every one of us has the potential for growth and personal development.  However, sometimes circumstances and experiences throughout life can hinder this process.  I will work with you to explore and understand your difficulties, offering you a genuine, safe and supportive relationship in which to do this.  From this you may experience new ways of being and identify and move towards healthier ways of being in relationship with yourself, others and life.

I trained at The Sherwood Psychotherapy Training Institute (Nottingham) and am fully qualified with a BSc Degree in Humanistic and Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy awarded by Staffordshire University.  I am a registered member and uphold the values and commitments of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).
