I have known Karen Pinder, as a client for a number of years. I found Karen to have great patience and empathy. She created a therapeutic environment whereby it felt safe to explore some very difficult and painful issues, which needed addressing so that I could move on with my life. When things hit crisis point, Karen walked alongside me through it and I never doubted her sincerity and commitment. Karen also employed a number of therapeutic approaches as a means of helping me find the strength to face what needed to be faced and value my achievements in doing so. She always achieved a good balance of professionalism and warmth, which contributed towards the safety and trust experienced during our therapeutic relationship.
Within my community-based voluntary role, it became evident that many of our service users were struggling with grief but finding it difficult to access professional support. I knew that Karen has experience in this field and had helped me work through personal grief issues, she seemed the ideal person to lead our proposed ‘Loss and Bereavement’ Support group. This was a pilot group and we approached Karen to plan and deliver 12 sessions. Karen addressed several aspects of the grieving process, facilitated some very profound whole/ small group interactions and introduced several different approaches to self-care and well-being for people coping with loss. Those who attended spoke highly of the sessions, the retention rate was very good and members of the group expressed interest in the group continuing for longer. We are now seeking funding to ensure this happen, that the sessions will run on a more frequent basis and we will be only too glad to have Karen back on board. (Practice Health Champions)
