Karin Sieger Integrative psychotherapist , TW9
In life we do not always get what we need or want: love, trust, safety, a chance. Telling your story to someone who is independent can help you make sense and give you a renewed sense of motivation to get your life back on track.
I believe we all have the ability to positively cope with the challenges of our lives. We all go through periods where this statement sounds rather unrealistic. That is when we may need some extra time and help to cope with difficulties and get our lives back on track.
Difficulties I work with
I am passionate about how life-changing therapy can be. My work covers a wide range of difficulties and I specialise in anxiety, bereavement, loss and relational issues. Please note, that I do not offer couples counselling.
Having personal experience of cancer treatment I offer a specialised service for people affected by cancer (including family, friends and carers). Feel free to contact me or visit my website for more information. Here you can also find various articles I have written on the subject (including how to deal with chemotherapy).
My practice is bilingual (English / German).
Counselling or psychotherapy? I offer both. Counselling tends to be short-term and focuses on solving immediate issues. Psychotherapy tends to be longer-term and looks at issues that may have built up over time.
In my work, I am guided by what you are looking for. Some people want to understand why they feel the way they do, or want to start feeling better. Something specific may have happened or things just built up over time. Others have important decisions to make, and are unsure which direction to take.
Finding the right counsellor or psychotherapist can take courage; following your intuition is important. You have to feel comfortable with the chemistry and need to know what to expect.
The first session would give you an opportunity to tell me a bit more about your difficulties, what you are hoping for, and for you to ask me any relevant questions. Based on this, I would advise you what kind of approach and length of work would be suitable, and you can decide whether you would like to go ahead.
I am a registered psychotherapist and counsellor with NHS experience, accredited by the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP), and a member of the BACP Register, which is accredited by the Department of Health. I am also a writer and my website will give you a list of all published articles. Prior to training in counselling and psychotherapy, I spent over 20 years in media and consumer research on a national and international level. I have worked in a range of organisational structures and cultures in Europe, Africa and Asia.
Feel free to contact me in confidence with any queries you may have.
