A bit about me...  After 15 years of professional adventure guiding, I studied earth sciences to become a cartographer for Lonely Planet. I've since retrained as a counsellor and gained a psychology degree. I bring the experience of a life spent outdoors together with modern science to offer a thoughtful, balanced, and practical approach to counselling.

Karen Grant

Registered Counsellor

Modern life is challenging. Cost of living, natural disasters, loss of life, climate change - the impacts are formidable and pervasive. You may be experiencing stress, anxiety, and/or despair. There is extra pressure on relationships as different perspectives create tension within families and across communities. Many people experience grief for what has already been lost. Your mental health may often be neglected as you struggle to just stay afloat.

My practice focuses on the psychological impacts of these big challenges, providing counselling to relieve anxiety, reduce despair, and restore relationships.


I offer a unique counselling experience. My practice is conducted mainly outdoors. The lack of formality suits many people, as does the restorative atmosphere of the natural environment.


Using proven therapies and a down-to-earth approach, I can help you understand and overcome challenges to live your most fulfilling and wholehearted life.

The Right Fit

The success of therapy relies on the relationship between you and your therapist. We need to be the right fit.
I start from the position that problems need fixing, not people. I weave the natural environment into my sessions, even when it's not possible to be outside. If this sounds like a good fit, I encourage you to start with the Introductory Session, a 15 minute chat on the phone where you can assess our connection. There's no obligation and no charge.
