about

davanti karen dempsey picHello. I’m Karen Dempsey, and I offer psychotherapy and counselling to individuals and couples in Purley, Paddington and Clapham – as well as online counselling via Skype.

I am a UKCP registered psychotherapist, and a registered member of the BACP.  My approach is integrative and transpersonal. I abide by the professional guidelines set out in the BACP’s Ethical Framework.

As well as my private practice – where I work on an open-ended basis – I offer short-term counselling at an NHS surgery in Lambeth, supporting patients who are experiencing depression and anxiety. I am a Clinical Team Leader for an IAPT service, managing placement therapists working at The Awareness Centre in Clapham.

I have also been involved with voluntary and charitable agencies:

  • Help Counselling in Notting Hill, working long term to help people through their stress, depression, anxiety and relationship troubles – and to discover hope, strength and self-esteem.
  • Cruse bereavement counselling service in Croydon, supporting people through their grief.
  • City Pregnancy Counselling & Psychotherapy, specialising in miscarriage and pregnancy-related issues – for men and women.
  • The Caravan in Piccadilly, offering counselling and listening services to people who reach out to someone when they have nowhere else to go.
  • Association for Pastoral Care in Mental Health in Croydon, working with people living with mental illness in the community, and helping to run creative writing groups.

My qualifications include:

  • MA in Transpersonal Counselling & Psychotherapy
  • Diploma in Transpersonal Integrative Counselling & Psychotherapy
  • CPD in Couples Counselling
  • CPD in the Trauma of Miscarriage
  • Certificate in Integrating CBT Modalities
  • Awareness in Bereavement Care – Cruse
  • MA in Creative Writing
