About Karin and why the “Dear Karin” column.

I am a psychotherapist and writer and have made free support available via my articles and videos since 2013. My writing and videos are jargon-free. I like to call a spade a spade and I don’t preach. What I say is based on my personal and professional experiences. I specialise in support with bereavement, grief, loss, personal transitions, creative blocks, the emotional impact of life changing illnesses (esp cancer). I believe that we all have the potential to grow, heal and cope with difficulties. Even if they cannot be solved. Want to know more? About Karin and Services I offer.

I look forward to reading from you.

Submission guidelines for 'Dear Karin'

Not every topic is suitable for an advice column. If your own or the life of another is at risk, if you feel suicidal, self-harm or have severe mental health difficulties, then please seek medical or crisis support via your medical practitioner, the Samaritans (in the UK and ROI) or any other relevant authority or agency. In such circumstances I cannot provide advice via this column or my practice.

I only select topics for which I feel suitably qualified, which include bereavement, grief, loss, personal transitions, creative blocks, the emotional impact of life changing illnesses (esp cancer) on those with the diagnosis, family and friends.

I aim to ensure an even selection of topics for my responses.

If your submission does not get selected for the column, I will still acknowledge receipt.

Do not submit topics which may be time-sensitive.

I cannot guarantee a timely response.

Keep your submission brief to one paragraph of no more than 500 words, which you are happy to see published on my website. I may edit submissions, without changing their meaning.

Do not submit any sensitive or identifying information.

Indicate how you would like your name to appear (or not).

My responses are not a substitute for medical advice, counselling or therapy.

I cannot engage in any subsequent dialogue regards any submissions received or responses given.

I retain all rights to my published responses, which may not be used in any form elsewhere without my explicit and written consent.

Please check your spam filter for responses, especially if you use Hotmail or Yahoo.
