About Me

15 cropped and lightened.jpg

Hi, I'm Karen and I run Total Focus Therapy. I have a love of outdoors and the simple things in life.


My first career was Teaching and for many years I worked with pupils with Special Educational Needs and those that had been through trauma of some kind. I quickly realised that a large part of the job involved active listening. I saw how pupils responded to this and quickly decided to follow my passion and train to be a Counsellor. I decided I wanted to be able to focus completely on each individual and tailor therapy to what each individual wants and help them to explore and find solutions for themselves...therefore 'Total Focus Therapy' was born.

Both during training and after qualifying, I have had experience working with various agencies which has given me a broad base of knowledge to draw from. This includes working with Young People, those experiencing anxiety and depression and those who are in recovery or seeking recover from addiction to drugs and alcohol.


I also realised that  releasing stubborn emotions, thoughts or patterns may sometimes need a different approach, and that’s when I decided to use my training in Spectrum Healing too, to offer another choice in how a client may wish to approach things.

I have travelled my own personal journey and can see that if we are willing to explore, find answers and then make the changes we need to, wellbeing can improve and we can find more joy and fun in our life.
