About Karin Blak

This is me

Before becoming a Sexual and Relationship Therapist, I used to deliver training in a variety of IT packages to businesses and private individuals. Before that I gained experience in both the office environment and catering at all levels.

I started down the route of becomong a therapist in 1998 when I gained certificates as a Neuro-Linguistic Practitioner  and Neuro-Linguistic Training Specialist.  This wetted my apetite for the subject of how we as humans work, so in 1999 I enrolled on a full-time psychology and sociology degree.

In 2004 I discovered that my special interest was intimate relationships and so was lucky to secure a place with Relate to take me further into the world of therapy.

Having completed a Pg Cert in both Relationship Counselling (2004), in Systemic Family Therapy (2007), and spent a year at the Tavistock Centre for Couple Relationships studying pyschodynamic relationship therapy I felt there was something mmissing.

A relationship tends to become more of a friendship if sex isn't included, so I decided to become a sexual and relationship therapist which is the main of my work now.

My work means a great deal to me and I am proud of the continious success of my private practice in the centre of Northampton where I see both couples and individuals with sexual and relationship issues.

How am I monitored in my work?

As part of the requirements by the British Association of Counselling  and Psychotherapy (BACP) and the College of Sexual and Relationship Therapists (COSRT), I have monthly supervision with a qualified relationship counsellor and supervisor as well as group supervision.

I frequently attend Continious Professional Development (CPD) days or courses to update my skills and knowledge.  As part of COSRT accreditation I attend my own personal therapy and will continue to do so as and when I feel the need.

On the whole I work within the framework and guidelines stipulated by both the BACP and COSRT.
