About me

My name is Karen Megahey and I am a qualified psychodynamic counsellor and supervisor, based in Sherborne, Dorset. Most of my experience has been working with adolescents in schools and charities. However, I do also work with children and adults. The psychodynamic approach focuses on understanding the root causes of a client’s current distress. These causes may lie deep within the unconscious and cause repeating patterns of difficult emotions and harmful behaviours. With my clients, I am able to use a number of techniques, which may help them gain knowledge and understanding of their internal and external world, bring some unconscious processes into consciousness and so make the client more able to cope with current and future difficulties.
