Meet The Team


Karen Aerts

I decided to open my own practice five years ago, after working in a variety of charities and other services. As a BACP member I genuinely enjoy my work, helping others overcome problems and living happier lives. I am an eclectic therapist and will tailor the sessions to suit your individual needs.



Tink can sense which clients will benefit from her calming presence. This may come from her own traumatic start in life as a street dog in Romania, and having natural empathy with those who have suffered distress. You can request Tink comes to your sessions, just let Karen know when booking.


“I was going through a particularly difficult patch, emotionally recently, and decided to ask for help. I found Karen to be a great listener and gave me time to offload everything. She equipped me with some strategies to help me move forward. I can honestly say, that within a day or two, I felt like a new person. I will be forever indebted to Karen for her advice and time. Thank you.”
