Karen Grant

Registered Counsellor

Challenges in life can feel overwhelming. They often result in uncomfortable levels of stress, depression, and anxiety. They create barriers to wellbeing and impact relationships. Counselling can provide simple, proven strategies to address those barriers, manage stress and anxiety, restore healthy relationships, and improve wellbeing.


I offer a unique counselling experience. Most of my sessions are conducted outdoors. It's unusual in professional counselling but with care and guidance, the natural environment enhances the counselling process. Using evidence-based, person-centred therapies, I can help you understand and overcome challenges, and live your best life.

My background is in outdoor guiding and fitness instruction. When I trained as a counsellor, it made sense to take my practice outside. I now bring all areas of my expertise - what I've learned from a life spent outdoors together with contemporary, evidence-based therapies - to offer a thoughtful, balanced, and practical approach to counselling.

What you can expect from counselling

  • To be heard - completely and without judgement

  • To gain insight and understanding - through discussion and therapy

  • To be supported - through kindness and connection

  • To experience positive change - both personally and in relationships

The Right Fit

The success of therapy is determined by 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.
