“Karin is a phenomenal counsellor/therapist”

An amazing listener who offers the most valuable advice and understanding. After every session, I felt like things made more and more sense.

" I've met myself with your encouragement"

Talking about my most vulnerable past has become my biggest strength. That helped me to give my pain and fear a voice and now soothe myself.

" Karin was the best decision
I made for myself"

I was able to build a build a great therapeutic relationship with Karin. This allowed me to be my 100% unfiltered self, making it easier to identify the areas I needed to work on.

The most important thing to me in counselling/therapy is building a relationship with you.
