Karen Morris



Working at smcp since 2017

I am a psychotherapist in advanced clinical training. I offer counselling and psychotherapy to individuals and couples. My approach is based on Transactional Analysis psychotherapy, which is founded on the beliefs that: Everyone's core self is OK - worthy of respect.
Everyone has the capacity to think and influence their lives by the decisions that they make and decisions can be changed - especially those life limiting decisions that we may have made in early childhood.
