Do you ever wonder what life would be like if you allowed yourself the time and energy to work on yourself?
I mean really do some deep, hard, grounding work.

From one-on-one therapy to group workshops I can help to delve into the problems in your life. Let me ease your burdens and share the workload to help you get to wherever the end point is for you.

Remember, life is marathon not a sprint.

I'm Karen Hartley, a humanistic integrative counsellor offering a warm empathic approach. I'm easy-going and love to have fun, more importantly, I like to meet new people this is what fuels my passion for helping others. I come from a media background and consider myself a creative at heart, I always try to find ways to inject some of that creativity within the sessions.

Individual Sessions

I offer one to one therapy sessions face to face (London, UK) or online.


Corporate / Commercial
Do you want to evoke change in the workforce to help create a better emotionally resilient environment?

Are you hosting an event centred around mental health or a similar subject that needs expert input?

I believe that having a supportive environment and a safe space to express your thoughts and feelings can help make sense of the things you are facing, helping you live a happier life.

We'll explore possible causes and triggers and develop effective coping strategies. Tailoring each treatment to your needs using approaches that include cognitive behavioural therapy.

    "I couldn't recommend Karen more highly, we worked together to host an online talk focused on mental health during the quarantine! She was punctual and professional, whilst also being extremely fun and engaging! The audience immediately opened up to her and we learnt lot's about managing their wellbeing during a very difficult time! We look forward to working with her again in the future!"

    "I felt very positive about my initial assessment. I felt heard, understood, reassured, and I came away from the session understanding areas I would like to focus on going forward. Rather than feeling emotionally overwhelmed at the end of the assessment, I actually feel empowered and focused."

    "Before I started counselling I felt very low about myself, self conscious and very lost in general. Karen completely changed my life and my view on different aspects about myself. She provided me with the help I needed, from dealing with my emotions to helping me find a confidence about myself I never thought would exist. Karen made me feel very at ease through a safe environment and I would recommend her to anyone who would need support or help."

    "After breaking free from a difficult relationship and going through a major life change, Karen not only helped me to understand and accept my feelings but also helped me to improve self-love, patience and my approach towards myself. She created the safe environment that I was needing to be able to start a new and much healthier chapter. She’s been such a huge help in my personal growth and I would recommend her right away!"
