Counselling for You
Counselling and psychotherapy with Karen Sedgwick
Based in central Uckfield
In response to the current COVID-19 situation in the UK I am offering telephone and online appointments.
Would you like to change something in your life?
Has something happened in your life and you need help and support?
Maybe you are unsure about the future, a relationship or your job?
Would it be helpful to talk to someone in confidence without fear of being judged?
Counselling For You offers a confidential and supportive space to talk, be heard and explore the issues affecting you.
Hello, my name is Karen Sedgwick, I have an Advance Diploma in Humanistic Integrative Counselling and a UKATA Diploma in Transactional Analysis (psychotherapy).
I have many years of experience helping clients reach a deeper understanding of themselves and their relationship with others.
I am a member of both the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) and UKATA (UK Association for Transactional Analysis) and work within their ethical framework.
I believe the key to successful therapy is the relationship between the counsellor and client. A good relationship provides the solid and supportive foundation necessary to promote change and growth.
I am one of a group of like minded, ethical counsellors at Resilience, a health and wellbeing resource for the area. Our therapy rooms are in central Uckfield with plenty of free parking, close to the train and bus station.
I have several years experience working with a number of issues including:
Grief and loss Self Esteem
As a counsellor I primarily use Transactional Analysis as a framework to help clients better understand their relationships with others and themselves.
About Transactional Analysis
Transactional Analysis (TA) was founded by Eric Berne in the 1950's and is a widely recognised and accessible form of modern psychology.
Sessions will explore your thinking, feeling and behaving and look at how these have been shaped by your past experience.
The goal is to help you regain autonomy over your life. Berne defines this autonomy as the recovery of three vital human capacities - spontaneity, awareness and intimacy.
At the heart of TA is the basic philosophy that:
People are OK, every individual has value and worth
Everyone has the capacity to think
People decide their own destiny and these decisions can be changed.

I am what I choose to become."
