Depression, Loss & Grief
People come to see me with a variety of complaints,
- feeling cut off from the world
- including a feeling of persistent fatigue
- lack of appetite or excess appetite
- not being able to look forward to enjoyable events
- feelings of not coping
- feelings of anxiety and low self esteem
- guilt for “not really being ill”
- lack of interest in activities or relationships
- loss of sex drive and poor sleep
While most of us may have experienced one or all of these feelings at some point in time, it is when they last for weeks on end that we start to feel unwell and out of balance.
It is in these times that our body starts to need help to recover.
Many people have a problem acknowledging depression. However, telling someone that you are depressed can be the first step toward recovery.
That way the necessary changes can be made to shift your outlook on life into a brighter direction.
Change is possible, and with good therapy it starts with the first session. Be prepared to discover new possibilities for yourself.
Karen’s unique style of integral psychotherapy could be the answer. Using a combination of therapy and homeopathic remedies, she has found that depression can be treated safely and effectively without side effects.
If you are searching for a safe and comfortable space to explore your patterns, with a confident and knowledgeable guide, to have your concerns taken seriously, in complete confidence and to be provided with the best possible healing options for your particular concern:
When I first went to see Karen I had been through a devastating break up with my partner of many years.
I was having a hard time going to work, and was thinking of trying to go on disability for my severe depression.
Karen offered a flower essence for feeling broken hearted which relieved me enough to do the therapy I needed to do.
She helped me see that this relationship had been abusive, along with several other relationships in my past.
We worked together on understanding the pattern of why I chose this type of partner.
Karen then prescribed a constitutional homeopathic remedy which changed this pattern. Because of this, I have been able to learn to love myself, find a career path that feels right, and only date those who treat me with respect.
“Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate.”
