About Me

Hello and welcome.    I’m Karen Johnson and I’m qualified accredited Counsellor based in Milton Keynes. 

I can support you in making sense of what is happening in your life and help you to see things in a different way: I will listen without judgment or interruption. My role is not to give you advice but help you to explore your feelings and provide the time to think about yourself and for yourself.

I’m here to help you work through your challenges in a safe, supportive way respecting your values, lifestyle, background and beliefs.  I offer a discreet and professional service tailored specifically to your requirements.   Being able to talk about your problems can make you feel less alone.  

I help clients see things in a different way and help them make sense of what is happening in their world, teaching them useful tools to help them manage stress, anxiety, depression or simply to help them build confidence or self belief in themselves as a person.  

I spent many years in a stressful corporate environment and faced many of my own personal challenges such as stress/anxiety, lack of confidence and self esteem as a result of workplace bullying.  Seeking counselling at the time I was in a difficult place offered me a lifeline to feel good about myself again and regain what I felt I had lost.   It inspired me to retrain and become a counsellor and help others who may be experiencing difficulties in life.  

I have used all of the techniques I’ve trained in to help me overcome many of these obstacles and improve my own mental health and well-being and used these techniques to help a number of clients improve their mental wellness and go on to lead more happy and fulfilling lives.   I work to a strict code of ethics and am governed by a variety of bodies within my field.  

It’s important that you feel comfortable with your therapist and feel like you are in safe hands, so I offer a free, no obligation, consultation for us to talk through your situation and see how I can help you.    

What some of my clients say

I luckily found Karen while going through a difficult time, from the first session she gave me ways to start thinking positively and gave me different processes to help keep anxiety down. Through being able to talk to Karen openly I was able to work out what was causing my anxiety which was a big help in turning things around. I would recommend Karen at Mind Calm to anybody who feels they could benefit from therapy.

Karen really stepped in at a time when I saw no way out – she really helped me slow life down and realise I need to enjoy the little things in life.  I really appreciate everything  Karen has helped me work through and see from a different perspective, encouraging me to explore my own solutions and build my confidence and self esteem in the process.    Karen is kind, patient, and demonstrates such empathy and understanding, anyone would be lucky to have her help them in their time of need.


I have seen hypnotherapists before but was really stands out for me about Karen is how she entwines NLP into the hypnotherapy to ensure that the sessions are tailored specifically for her clients.  It is clear that Karen is very passionate about helping people and I really like her compassionate approach.  I would highly recommend Karen.

I am the biggest of sceptics, so after an initial chat with Karen, I wanted to give hypnotherapy a try in relation to my unhealthy eating habits. I was very much on the fence as to wether it works but Karen put me at ease. I booked in with Karen for my first session. I relaxed into the   talk, listening to Karen’s calming voice. I still didn’t think it would work but I can truthfully say that I was well and truly submerged in the experience. As a result, I have curbed some of my bad eating habits and just don’t fancy particular foods. I am shocked at how effective the whole experience was and I actively recommend Karen’s services. A great experience.
