Specialising in Bereavement and Animal Therapy
Accredited Counsellor and Psychotherapist along with animal therapy in Arundel, West Sussex
Welcome and thank you for visiting my website.
My name is Karen Parsons and I am an experienced Accredited Counsellor and Psychotherapist in Arundel, West Sussex.
As a qualified therapist I have specialist knowledge and education in bereavement counselling. If you have experienced the death of someone who was very important to you, you might be finding it very difficult to adjust to the immense changes happening in your life right now. Grief can shake everything up - your beliefs, your personality, and even your sense of reality.
Grief, although normal, can manifest in a huge range of unexpected ways. Some people get angry, some people withdraw further into themselves and some people become completely numb. Sometimes, grief can turn into something more serious - like depression.
I am committed to providing counselling and therapy in a safe, confidential and non-judgemental environment. I offer a place where you can explore what is really troubling you at your own pace. Sometimes you may feel unable to cope, overwhelmed, very low or that your problems are just not important.
