"As a counsellor, I love to see children and adults gain the strength they need to overcome personal challenges”. Karen Towers
Hello everyone, I’m Karen! I’ve been working with children for 30 years as a teacher, both in Australia and overseas, and in primary schools and high schools. I’m also a counsellor/psychotherapist - you can read more about me, my background and qualifications HERE.
LGBTIQA + Groups
Anyone aged between 17 and 23 who are interested in small group support, get in contact!
Large groups can often increase anxiety, so numbers will be capped at a maximum of 5 people and a minimum of 3. Art Therapy will be introduced, once groups are established. At this stage, expressions of interest are asked to be in as soon as possible. Logistics such as dates, times, costs, & locations will then be discussed, and groups formed when minimum capacity is reached.
Counselling is available via a range of Informal sessions: Walk & Talk Therapy, Cafe Sessions, Online or over the Phone. Counselling is also available at 1/81 Market Street, Wollongong, as well as at R&R Education Emporium in Thirroul.
Clients on the NDIS with self-managed or plan managed plans are able to receive support through this service.
If you’re unsure of anything or have any questions, please call me for a no-obligation 10 minute phone conversation.
Counselling for Children and Teenagers
Helping children to express themselves. Parenting these days is tough gig; please feel free to contact me on 0412 361 008 for a no-obligations chat if you feel that your children are “not quite themselves”.
Children and most teenagers don’t want to sit still and talk for an hour! Karen uses a range of resources and activities to engage with children and help them to express themselves. Creative activities, such as fabric therapy, art and play therapy, books, cards, games and gardening are some examples. Read more HERE.
All children and teenagers are welcome, including those with special needs and with Autism Spectrum Disorder.
Cafe sessions and Walk and Talk therapy is also available for teenagers. Walk and talk therapy is exactly as it sounds. We take to the
great outdoors and have a session while walking.
If you’re unsure of anything or have any questions, please call me for a no-obligation 10 minute phone conversation. Please get in touch with me online HERE, via 0412 361 008 or email@example.com
