In the short while Karen has been counseling me, it has helped me to stay focused and in track. She is objective and very knowledgeable and most of all, non-judgmental. Karen has exemplified professionalism, empathy and respect for many of my mental health concerns and has provided guidance and support for issues I have trouble expressing to friends and family. Her response time and availability has exceeded my expectations and I would highly recommend her services.
Greatly intuitive and a very responsive counselor. She seems to be inside of my mind most of the time. She also gives great advice.
I've only been talking with Karen for a few days, but so far I'm very pleased. The messaging feature allows us to communicate when it's convenient for us. She asks questions that make you really think about yourself and your situation. Messaging gives me time to consider my answer, dive a little deeper into myself, which I think is more beneficial than a verbal conversation where you feel pressured to give an answer right away. I look forward to continuing care in this forum with Karen!
Karen is amazing!!! We have a great relationship. I am able to tell her anything and she will give me great advice in return! I am so thankful to have her. She’s really great!!She is always looking out for me and my feelings. We have talked about feelings all the way to boy problems. She is so wonderful and I am thankful to have her to talk to and give great advice!!
Karen is amazing. She pushes me when I need it and is gentle when I need that. She's smart, kind, and wonderful. She has been a godsend.
Karen has been amazing. From the outset, I engaged Karen to talk about weightloss and issues with that. Quickly it moved on to issues with my siblings, and then my own burn out 12 months ago and now my brothers decline as he loses the battle with brain cancer. I can't fault Karen's support and work. I'm truly blessed to have her.
I could not do without Karen at the moment - we dont just talk and talk, she really moves me through things. She has moved me from places that I would sit in a counsellor or psychologist room for two years on the same issue. I am really grateful to have her as the choice for me and I am grateful for teen counseling where I can write anytime there is a pressing issue.
Karen was helpful, very responsive and offered great suggestions to help with our issues. I would recommend her.
Karen has been a huge help in making life changes. She responses with both solutions and questions to help me decide on what I need to do. Definately reccomend her or you can get her.
Karen Armstrong is an insightful, empathetic, and skilled professional. She asks excellent questions, offers ideas to look at the situation differently, and roots out issues and solutions in a very timely manner.
I've been conversing with Karen for more than 2 years now. She's helped me with my anxiety and overrationalizing that got aggravated when I first started working in my current job. I was easily sensitive to small triggers that saddened me. She assisted me greatly with my dementors.
Karen has been amazing. She always reiterates whatever I say back to me to make sure she understands exactly what I am saying, so I know she is understanding me. She is a great communicator during sessions and through messaging. I HIGHLY recommend her.
Karen really puts what we think are issues into perspective and once we are finished with our sessions it really sinks in and we start to see things as they are and not what we have made up in our minds. Been dealing with things for over 20 years and she finally got through to me!
Karen has been amazing. She has helped me understand things so much better and I’m really happy to have picked her. She is always there when I need to talk and responds very quickly. She checks in on me often to make sure everything is ok. I’m very glad I have her to talk to.
Karen is very attentive and offers her opinion & suggestions that I so much appreciate. Her responses are detailed and very helpful. She is also very good at checking in with me if she hasn’t heard from me after a few days. She’s awesome and I feel blessed to have her to talk to.
I like how Karen responds in a timely manner. I get two or three messages a day from her, which is really important to me since I'm just starting my journey. I've had a couple telephone calls with her that were very productive. She listens to me and she gives me tools here and there to help me cope on situations at work. It's not too many tools at the same time and I was actually able to practice the tools she gave me and I'm becoming more confident in my coping skill at work with negative co-workers.
Karen is a very compassionate, non judgmental and understanding counselor! She has helped me grow into a more productive individual (in my mentally) challenge life. I thank her so much for the tools she has taught me so far. I look forward to continuing working with her. Thanks so much Karen for everything!
Karen is a very responsive counselor. She listens and repeats for clarification which is really helpful. She responds in a timely manner with texts and really aims to help with better communication.
Karen is a very attentive listener. She offers a firm and strong type of support. She is empathetic and kind. She has helped me very much. I love working with her.
Karen has helped me a great deal with current and past relationships. Coping with complex issues. Thank You!
Karen is insightful, non judgmental and goes the extra mile. She seems interested in my case and trying to understand it. Love her.
Karen always responds quickly. She acknowledges what I communicate and she offers insight that helps me look at the big picture and keep moving forward.
She is naturally insightful. I am pleased with her abilities and recommendations.
Karen’s very attentive with me during this process. She always answers back in a timely manner and will continue to engage. I like working with her so far.
Karen is awesome! She helps me work through problems and gives really good advice. She is really easy to talk to and cares about the people she is helping. She responds quickly and gives well thought out responses. Karen is really good at what she does and I am very lucky to have matched with her.
Karen is amazing; she gives great advice and responds very quickly. Her comments have already influenced my behaviour and I am trying my best to learn more about how to be comfortable with myself. Karen is very supportive and respectful.
Karen’s honestly been really helpful and she’s attentive and listens to everything and really addresses what you’re concerned with.
Karen is amazing. I've never done therapy before and was very skeptical of it. I also wasn't sure if I wanted to talk about my stresses, feelings and opening up about work and relationships. Karen has made it very easy to do that and very appreciative of the work she does. I've been working with Karen for 3 weeks and have seen big improvements and changes in my life. Very thankful for Karen and this platform. It is really amazing to talk to someone that listens and offers great advice, encouragement and doesn't judge. Thanks Karen!
I have been enjoying my conversations with Karen. She has provided a lot of insight in making sense as to why I am feeling the way I am. She has walked me through specific exercises to help me be a better communicator.
Karen is very prompt in responding and we are on similar pages regarding views of things. She seems very positive and that's just what I need right now.
I think she is very insightful. It's been a couple of weeks of talking and I've noticed a change in my mental and emotional health as well as my fiance. I definitely will continue to work through my issues with her.
Amazing and very helpful. I've been struggling and other counselors in the past have not helped. I'm comfortable discussing everything with Karen. It's like talking to a friend that's an expert.
Dear Ms. Armstrong,
At a time when I was feeling super low and lonely, talking to you helped me see a lot of things in a better, more positive light. I feel more energised and I am able to better understand how I feel and act in accordance to it. I see myself pushing harder to try new things without putting too much stress on myself and I feel a new confidence which is very empowering. This new relationship that has been established with myself makes me happy and safe. And I owe all this to you. So thank you very much for everything! And your help and support will always be remembered! I can never thank you enough for being there! It means a lot to me! :)
Karen has been great and has helped me so much in giving me clarity on the range of issues. I have really turned my life in the direction I wanted to with Karen's help. I feel enthusiastic each day and extremely happy.
Karen is great and I appreciate her checking on me! She has given me some great advise!
Thank you for checking in on me even if we haven’t spoken in a few days. It shows your professionalism and caring.
I was a little apprehensive when I first thought of on line therapy but Karen really makes me feel at ease and is very understanding of my issues. She is quick to respond and is honest with me which is something that I need. I am happy with the encouragement that Karen has offered me.
She responds in a timely fashion and remembers what I am going through
Karen has been my life line through a very bleak time. She has eased my mind and soothed my soul. Her timely responses to my emails as well as sound, insightful ,compassionate counseling has enabled me to find peace thru my uncertainty and chaos .
My counselor, Karen Armstrong, truly did everything in her powers in order to help me and my other personalities. The knowledge she possesses and the advices she gave me are NOT the only things I had benefited from, the fact of her listening to what I had to say, and the way in which she helped me dealing with my fare share of problems really say a lot about her. 10/10 would recommend to everyone, it was a pleasurable and delightful yet short lived experience having Miss. Armstrong as counselor.
Karen is awesome. I’ve already referred this website to friends.
I appreciate that I can send a message to Karen at any time and she will respond in a timely manner. At the beginning of our sessions I was suffering and needed more than the weekly sessions which I was having with my counselor in my town. Karen really helped me. I was able to write down my feelings when I was troubled and she would discuss them with me. Thank you Karen!
Mrs. Karen Armstrong has always been there to listen and provide tools to help me look at things objectively without fear of judgment. I appreciate the help.
Karen's intuition and wisdom met my issues exactly at the right time. She is an excellent counselor and an inspiring spirit.
She's an amazing counselor, always listening, giving me strength and her questions help me to find my way.
Karen is very supportive and responds to my texts in a timely fashion. She is very professional and knowledgeable and I am very happy to have matched with her who cares about me as a person and offers advices that relate with my concerns. She seems to look out for me as I express my complicated situation with her. Will definitely recommend! Thank you, Karen! I appreciate you so much!
Karen has been extremely supportive and has helped me to get a grip on my personal relationships, with her encouragement I have felt strong enough to sort through personal emotional ties, old patterns and habits. If I feel confused about what to do in a personal relationship situation Karen's expertise has given me insight into things where I would be otherwise blind sighted. Karen helped me to figure out a situation which caused my heart some flutter and my mind was conflicting at the time. I soon realised what I had to do with her help, and it Is no longer a problem. I feel comfortable where that relationship has ended.
She is extremely helpful in sorting through the craziness in my life. the part that I like is if she hasn't heard from me in a few days she will check up on me, and that means a lot.
Karen Armstrong has been very good to me at this point in time, Karen also returns my e-mails in a timely manner and with professionalism.
Karen has been responsive and helpful. She works well with accommodating my schedule. I appreciate the online confidentiality that teen counseling has provided.
I didn’t know how this would work initially but like all things in life it takes time. I think Karen has a great way of rooting out the issue and offering supportive feedback. I felt like I was heard and respected, she’s really great.
I have only been working with Karen recently but have gotten some great insights and perspectives that I never considered by myself before. In the short time that we’ve worked together she’s shown competency and great clinical skills.
Karen is amazing! She understands and listens to what you have to say then repeats it to make sure she understood my point.
Karen has been nothing but a great listener and a beautiful support to me. You’ll be in good hands with her.
Karen is responsive and caring.
Very compassionate and supportive. She always responds with something helpful and gives me a different perspective on things. I’m glad I signed up!
She’s wonderful. She understands what I’m going through and provides excellent feedback but also suggestions.
I haven't been speaking to Karen for that long now, but so far it's really easy to talk to her. She listens and takes the information I give her and puts it into perspective for me. She gets me to think and go a little deeper within myself. So far so good.
Karen has strong listening skills, she focused on the matter in hand and has a way to get you to express yourself with very little effort. My daughters and I are on our way to reconciling our differences and Karen helped us get there with her kind words and her ability to listen. Thank you Karen!
She is nice, supportive, strong, and insightful. I am truly glad that we have crossed paths; she has worked wonders on my self esteem, depression and LGBT related things.
She is great. Listens to me and talks me through everything.
I am very thankful, that I got matched with Karen. I felt so much support and understanding. Together we did an incredible job and from multiple depression signs, we worked it out to a healthy positive level.
I really like working with Karen- she is very helpful!
When I first started coming on here I was a mess. I was really reluctant to even try this. But Karen is a great counselor. She understood what I was saying and where I was coming from. She helped me every step of the way. In just a few weeks I was a different person and I'm continuing to build myself and grow. I would recommend her to anyone who really wants help and change.
Karen's replies to my messages have been kind and wise. I really appreciate having someone who listens to my concerns as I'm going through a challenging patch, and who offers such sensible advice.
Karen is kind, supportive and really makes sure she understands where you are coming from. She generally responds within 24 hours with detailed advice on your situation and if she hasn't heard from you in a while, she checks up on you. I really like that about her.
Karen was very helpful in telling me what might be wrong in my situation rather than myself. She was always there when I needed her, and she doesn't just tell me what I want to hear. It was very helpful to me that I talked to her. I was able to get out of a toxic situation.
Karen has become more of a friend to me. When my life hit bottom, she was the only person I could still trust and talk to aside from talking to God in prayer.
Karen is a wonderful listener. She will always confirm her understanding of what your going through and offer tools and advice to help. There were several days that went by without me messaging her and she simply sent me a message to check on me and make sure I’m ok. I would recommend her to anyone in need of someone to talk to!
Simply the best therapist anyone could ever ask for. Thank you, Karen!
Helped a lot :)
Karen has been very supportive and helpful to me during tough difficult times, and offers really good advice wisdom and counseling I enjoy speaking with her.
Karen has been just what I needed in a counselor. She is kind, respectful and very understanding but also tells it like it is. I never feel like she is sugar coating things which doesn’t help anyone. She has offered some unique insights and has genuinely helped me get on a more positive path personally and in my relationship.
Good, she makes me feel like she is interested
I enjoy talking with Karen and greatly appreciate her lending ear and advice.
Karen is fantastic. She always responds within 24 hours and she really tries to understand what you are saying, never taking the chance that tone is lost in text. She really tries to get to the root of an issue but does so very gently, never pushing to hard. She is also great at letting you just talk freely, knowing that sometimes you just need to get things out of your own head.
Karen is like a friend without being biased. She listens and responds with honest guidance that really helps you with your problems.
Karen is very understanding and has a lot to offer in terms of experience.
She is good and knows how to analyze the situation well. I love talking to her and I feel comfortable and relaxed while I.m doing that.
I feel much better with Karen's help
Karen is a wonderful counselor!! She is always responding in a timely manner and approaches me online in a very kind way. She addresses my needs. Thank you Karen!!!
Ms. Armstrong is very professional and nice.
Karen was always caring and responsive.
Karen has been very helpful to me. She listens to understand, gives balanced responses that can be applied in practical ways and validates my experiences and feelings. She’s been wonderful!
Karen is a very supportive counselor. She listens to the issues at hand and diagnoses it properly. Extremely happy that I have her to help with my day-to-day.
I came to teen counseling not knowing what I needed or what to expect. I felt comfortable immediately with a Karen as I disclosed some very traumatic and personal information that I do not discuss with anyone else. She is honest and empathetic. She guides you to discover resolutions and coping strategies on your own so that you can cope with issues presently and in the future. She uses open ended questions to allow you to elaborate and find a deeper meaning to what is going on. I have not been using this counselling website very long but I do feel that sharing my issues is helpful and allows me to put my life in perspective.
Karen, has been really helpful over the past 2 months. Has helped me to identify strategies in how to communicate better with my partner. Has given me tools in how to be more assertive rather then yelling to get the point across. Would highly recommend Karen to anyone having problems with their relationships.
She is very professional and always wants to know more about me and my situations.
I love that Karen Armstrong asks intuitive questions and helps get down to the true underlying issues. She has helped me become more aware of myself.
Karen is quick to respond and you can tell she actually reads what you write because she responds specifically about the things you're troubled by.
Karen listened and gave excellent advice on my issues and situation in a recent relationship. Nothing on the internet or talking to friends would have had a better outcome than talking it out with a true professional. That would be Karen.
Very helpful, I truly appreciate her.
She is kind and caring and a very good listener.
Wonderful council provided. She is very helpful and caring. :)
I really appreciate Karen Armstrong, she's very helpful and she listens really well and if she doesn't understand, she asks questions. She's really responsive and if you don't reply for a bit she checks up on you.
Karen is a very patient, wise, and understanding counselor and individual. She gives helpful words of knowledge and truly tries to understand you when you tell her things. She is a very good counselor.
She has given me a voice in a time when I am doing things for others. I feel good in sharing things with her.
A very helpful lady.
Karen is very responsive. She is intuitive in understanding the issues. She also is pretty fair in helping one see the bigger picture and offering other perspectives. I highly recommend her and I recommend teen counseling. It is an innovative way to get counseling services during one's busy life without blocking out a lot of time to visit a counselor.
Karen was very helpful in getting me through a rough time. Getting her feedback was invaluable.
She seems to know her stuff and is non judgmental. I feel pretty comfortable with her.
She is better at getting to the heart of my issues than people I have talked to in person.
I really appreciate Ms. Armstrong. She understands what I am feeling and she gives me good feed back. I feel blessed to have found this service.
She seems to have expertise in the issues I am dealing with which is just what I needed.
I love how empathetic she is and how she is professional, yet loving with her responses. She's like a mother figure with a cool, and level head to help guide those she helps.
She is amazing! Responds no matter the time of day and really seems to understand what I’m feeling and the underlying issues. I end up feeling a little better after talking with Karen
Karen has been a really big help with me and my relationship. She gives me good insight from an outside view. It is easy to be honest with her and she responds so well. I never feel judged from her. I would recommend her to anyone who wants help with relationship issues. Thanks Karen!
Wonderful, insightful counsel and Karen has a great ability to help you get clarity and see what the real issues are. She also makes you feel empowered enough to believe that you can make changes.
Right off the bat Karen seemed to listen and understood what I was wanting. She responds well and tends to get you talking. Very comforting and yet offers sound advice at the same time! I’m very happy I have been paired with her and would recommend her for anyone that truly wants help and has a hard time with people.
Karen is very supportive and helpful, caring and friendly, and has been helping me and always gives me tips and checks in with me.
She listens to what I have experienced and what I'm going through without bias.
Karen’s best trait is that she is a great listener. She is also very good at giving encouragement and helps me see the positive side of life. She allows me to talk about anything and helps me reflect on what I’ve said. She genuinely cares about the things I’m talking about and it shows in her voice and the way she responds to the things I say. If you need a listening board and someone who doesn’t judge and will encourage you, then Karen is the person to talk to.
Karen is a wonderful counselor. She is helpful, insightful and always takes time to listen and offer suggestions. She conveys a sense of caring that I have not had with other counselors.
Karen is amazing. I am very thankful that she was matched with me. She is very kind and caring and so incredibly helpful. Karen is really helping me get through one of the very hardest times of my entire life! I really appreciate her!
Karen understands my needs and has helped me gain confidence and got me back on track. I would definitely recommend her.
Karen has been such a big help. Thank you.
Karen has helped me with my struggles and I think she is an excellent listener and a kind non judgemental person.
You have helped me address my need to set boundaries for my daughter. Thank you!
Karen is very responsive and attentive. She replies to message really quick and she listens well.
So far she has been very helpful getting me where I need to be - insightful and supportive.
I think everyone should be signing up for FaithfulCounseling service during the holiday season!
That month has got to be the worst stress month of the year...
This year, I signed up on Dec. 21st, & immediately it seemed like my life was smoother...
Funny, that happened even before I started chatting with Karen Armstrong!
Just the mere act of signing up started to clear up space for me!
Karen Armstrong is amazing!
I have spoken with her before, when I first met her on the teen counseling site...
Settled me right down after major marriage stress!
Unusually, when I signed up at Faithful Counselling, I had no idea Karen was here too!
I had just thought that I should get a Christian take on my situation...
Lo & behold, I was matched to Karen again, which was great!
I didn't know she was a Christian too, from my chats on teen counseling...
Sometimes you just want to talk about religion & God when you are faced with turmoil, so that is why I switched over to FaithfulCounseling...
So great to get the same counselor!
The best was, Karen knows when not to pry or push buttons...
I felt this time like digressing into the positive things I was doing with my life, & she went with that right away...
Instead of digging up the past, we worked on what was about the future...
I have basically resolved my feelings about what happened in my marriage...
Which means that after 21 years of marriage, I am probably going to go for another 21 years...
A difficult choice...
But probably best for everyone in the long run...
Thanks Karen Armstrong for all your help, & thanks FaithfulCounseling for being there...
Of all the psychiatrists, social workers, that I have seen in person, turns out this method of online counseling, with Karen Armstrong, was the best solution for me...
Also the most affordable...
I will sign up again if a I need it...Any crisis or anticipation of stress...
Karen has been extremely supportive, caring and attentive to my situation and always responds quickly and adjusts her schedule to help me talk with her. Very grateful for her attentiveness and help with sorting out issues.
Karen has helped me through one of the hardest struggles I've been dealing with for many, many years. She's helped me to see it in a new light, which has helped me deal.
Karen is giving me the necessary tools to deal with my loss, and I feel better every day.
She’s a very understanding woman with plenty of experience under her. She’s doesn’t let emotions guide her through the counseling process. She’s able to say to you what your friends or others are unable to say. All together she’s a great counselor and I would recommend her to many people.
Karen is thoughtful, patient, and one of my best advocates. I was hesitant about substituting phone counseling for in-person sessions, but I feel supported and heard. I'm very grateful for teencounseling.com and my match with Karen.
Karen is very insightful, intelligent and professional.
Karen is a kind woman who tries hard to make sure she is serving her patients well. She gives good insight and gives her patients good ideas on things to try that might make them feel better. She responds in good time to a message and to be able to reach her when I feel the need has been an awesome experience for me.
I would say she completely understands what I am going through and what I need.
Karen has a way of saying very little to get the most out of what I am feeling and it's great. She is very understanding and offers great ways of thinking.
It didn't take long for me to feel comfortable talking to Karen. She was able to give me insight into my situation. My family and friends were not able to see the situation from any other viewpoint than mine. She saw both sides and also provided some clinical details about what was happening around me. It is funny how much she sounds like my husband, but her message delivery is comforting where my husband is not a softy at all. :0) Thanks Karen.
Karen has been so kind and helpful. She is incredibly understanding and was able to provide me with resources to help me handle my anxiety and depression more healthily. She's always been very prompt and professional. I would definitely recommend her to friends and family.
Karen is wonderful and I would not hesitate to recommend her!
Karen is an excellent counselor who really does target the issue and offers multiple ways to address it.
Karen Armstrong is understanding and supportive. She has a deep understanding of people and behavior. Suggests good coping strategies. A very good counselor, an active listener, highly recommend!
Karen has been very accommodating and helpful throughout the past few weeks.
Karen is wonderful, very professional and thoughtful. I am so glad to have her as my therapist.
Karen has been very supportive and understanding of my situation. She seems to have a very thorough knowledge of this area and she has given me the validation and the reassurance that I need as there is nobody in my life.that understands this process. I feel that i have a true ally by my side and is giving me.the confidence and clarity to continue on this pathway. Thank you.
She was the motivation and step I needed to better my life. I feel like I can tell her everything. She is wonderful.
Karen Armstrong is an excellent counselor. I would recommend her to anyone for professional and prompt counseling.
Karen is fantastic!! Very understanding and caring.
Karen is incredible. She always checks in with you, always knows what to say. She is just a beautiful person and a top-notch counselor.
Karen has been a stable supportive guidance for me through some very hurtful and despairing situations. She has been able to help me find clarity in my confusion often and acknowledge my feelings, which has given me strength and courage to keep getting out and trying to enjoy my life.
If you want to save your marriage, Karen Armstrong is the lady to speak to! (When I say speak, I mean message!!!)Thank you so much teen counseling for saving my marriage!!!! God Bless!
Karen always replies very quickly and shows genuine care, because when I don't reply to her, she will check in with me to make sure that I am ok. Karen listens but doesn't judge, and she is always supportive, gentle and kind when I'm feeling stressed. I really appreciate Karen as my counsellor!
Karen has been great. She was very understanding and empathic in her advice. Very thankful for her help!
She is great at listening to my concerns and she responds immediately. She has a very gentle approach.
Karen is great at reminding me to write back to her - I really appreciate her and her patience since my mental health is really hard for me to push aside.
Karen is absolutely great. She listens very well and always has a helpful and insightful response. She messages me all the time and responds very, very quickly. Karen has shown me how valuable it is to have daily therapy texts and weekly hour long conversations on the phone. I highly recommend her!! Thanks to her, I see myself continuing my teen counseling membership for a long time, so I can continue to have her as my day-to-day therapist.
I've been chatting with Karen for over a year now and she's been excellent to talk to. She always has an ear out and she never leaves too long between talks. You can tell that she genuinely cares about what's going on with me and how I'm doing. Sometimes, that's the biggest thing that people need. Someone that's just there and can give you a subjective opinion without feeling like you're being talked down to or just talked at. Karen actually cares about me.
Karen is great at reading through the words and understanding my concerns. She both soothes and prompts to encourage healing.
I don't have much time, as usual. Karen is a good listener, and I appreciate her insight. I like having a qualified counselor to bounce my thoughts off of. She has been very courteous, and kind. I appreciate this opportunity to have someone there to work out my thoughts and issues with, as I live in a remote area, and qualified counseling is hard to come by.
Karen is readily available everyday, and she will check up on me if I haven't communicated in a day, just asking how I am doing. I trust in her advice and she knows what she is doing. I highly recommend her!
Karen Armstrong is a very good counselor. She responds very quickly and seems very concerned about me. She has given me some techniques to help when am stressed. Although I know what I have to do, it helps to get it reinforced.
Understanding, and confident in the advice that is given.
Karen is always replying to me as quickly as she can. She taught me some psychology methods and it's really been helpful. I appreciate her patience and guidance.
I have been very pleased with this service. Many years of traditional therapy just were not working for me, even after I found a therapist I liked. Because I have very sporadic moods and often have the need to express something immediately, teen counseling is a good fit for me. I can write exactly how a feel almost at the moment because you can share 24/7. I know that in less than a day, often just an hour or two, I will have a clear-headed response helping manage what I am experiencing. Karen Armstrong has been great about accepting non-traditional choices I have made in my life and not trying to make those the source of all my problems like I have had other therapists do. I do not worry that I am going to say something that is going to shock or freak her out. Instead, I feel like she has either heard it before or just accepts it and focuses on the actual issue I am having. I would recommend iCounsling to anyone who has found traditional talk therapy to not suit them; this is great if you have a very busy schedule. I have not used the scheduled meeting times yet because I am usually too busy to plan one. However, I feel that even without using them I am getting great value out of this service.
Karen was amazing! She helped me so much and made me realize I'm a good person and a great mum. If I ever need any help again, I want Karen! 5 star rating
Karen was very good
Karen has been very helpful in opening lines of communication. Thank you.
Karen was very helpful in the past few weeks. Thanks for everything!
Thanks Karen, you were helpful!
I found Karen's insights and support valuable and enlightening. She shared various resources with me which I have found useful and healing.
We had one webcam session which I found very helpful. She always response quickly to my emails. We have a second webcam session tomorrow.
Karen is awesome. She's helped me work through a lot of issues with my children and the death of their father. I'm on my feet again.
Karen is wonderful and so kind and patient. She really listens and she makes it easy to relax enough to talk about issues in a safe environment knowing that you will not be judged for your thoughts and feelings. Highly recommended service and a LOT cheaper than other counselling service out there.
Karen gives great advice which I have started to implement in my life to great effect. She's quick to respond and very attentive.
Very understanding and could pinpoint my troubles right away.
I was in a very dark place in my life before I started talking to Karen. She helped me manage my coping skills and my anxiety as well. She's always there when you need someone to talk to and she gives great advice.
I love Karen! She's the best. She has helped me get through so much in such a short amount of time. She is very understanding and has great insight on my life and those that I'm connected to. She doesn't judge me for the things that I want to pursue and is a sense of support for me. I am very grateful to have her as my therapist!
She helped me a long time ago and now I am back because I trust her to help me again.
Karen is wonderful. She helped me through one of the toughest times in my life by recommending me various activities.
Karen has been great. Very responsive, very intuitive.
Karen has been a wonderfully knowledgable and dependable counsellor. She responds very quickly and is always ready to help.

Karen is very nice and helped me a lot when it comes to expressing myself and listening to my inner voice. Thank you very much for being there when I needed, Karen :)
Karen has been extremely helpful to me. She's been very responsive and has made me feel comfortable sharing things I've never really felt comfortable sharing with anyone. For the first time, I feel like therapy is actually helping me take bigger steps in becoming who I want to be and becoming a better person, and that's all thanks to Karen.
Karen is a great therapist to work with. She offers unbiased and sound advice; always going the extra mile to ensure progress.
Karen tells it like it is, and that's exactly what I need. I love how she will check on me if I haven't messaged her in a few days. There have been some days I don't know what I would have done without her. I am so glad I found this site and that Karen is my counselor. She has been a huge help to me this last year or so!
Karen doesn't always tell you what you want to hear, but she tells you what you NEED to hear. Very versatile and helpful with a number of issues.
Karen has been of great help for me during a difficult time in my relationship. Over the last couple of months she guided me through a heavy storm with her advice and her listening to me. Thank you so much Karen!
Karen is great. I have only been using this service for a couple of weeks, but she has already been so helpful. She is very prompt with her responses and they are always well thought out and well written. She definitely knows what she is doing, and her experience and expertise shines through while talking with her. She is very compassionate and kind. I love how she gives me a lot of options for treatment. I would definitely recommend Karen to anyone who is looking for an excellent online therapist who will be there for you.
Honestly this is my first time seeking help from a counsellor and I can't thank Karen enough! She always gives sound advice and she is very patient, too. She gives quick responses and my days have honestly gone better since I knew her. Thank you, Karen!
I always appreciate the fact that Karen responds to me every single day. I like that she never gives you a yes or no answer more of she wants you to find it on your own. She's a very understanding person and for someone who was skeptical about online help she sure turns your perspective around. I recommend her.
Karen is really good at her work. She is thoughtful and gives you things to think about. She is a great sounding board.
Karen has been wonderful to talk to. She always listens with understanding and is always quick to respond.

Karen's the bomb! Love working with her.
Karen has been nothing but great help. She is awesome. She tries to present different work-arounds and methods to help you cope with your struggles. And when you don't reply she continues to check up on you. She cares!
She is very sweet and makes contact almost daily.

Karen has been wonderful, compassionate, and kind. She is able to break down emotions in a calm, logical, manner and always checks up on me when I don't respond for a while.
I switched to Karen recently after reading her reviews. She just felt like the right match for me. I've gotten more from her then I've gotten in 6 sessions with my counselor in person. I will continue working with her! She is great
Karen is nothing short of amazing. She has helped me the most in the least amount of time. I had been through 4 counsellors before her and she was worth the wait. You won't be disappointed with Karen!
I think Karen is fantastic. Her guidance has been so helpful and I know she really cares by the frequency that she checks in. I would recommend her to anyone seeking a fantastic counselor on this site.
Karen is hands down the best person I've come across who knows just how you're feeling, what to say and how to deal with it. To date I've passed through 16 counsellors both online and here and have only felt comfortable and right since meeting Karen.
She is very knowledgeable and gave me some great ideas, apps and skills to help me through. She responded quickly and was sincerely interested in me and was so helpful!!
Karen is good at asking questions and seeking more information.
I really enjoy working with Karen, and she really understands! She has given me great feedback and resources that really help me as I am going through transition in my life.
Karen Armstrong has been very compassionate and helpful. She has also been a great resource and offering a wealth of information that has helped.
Karen is helpful and professional.
Karen is a great listener and can really help you sort out your thoughts!
Karen has been incredibly helpful in a confusing time in my life. She has helped me sort through distractions and behavior patterns with my partner, and helped me to get closer to clarity. Her understanding of Asia and different cultures has made it really easy to get a jump start on counseling and dive in to my situation with genuine comprehension of where I'm coming from. Her writing is clear and concise, and always articulate.
Thank you for always being there and always listening. You have helped me a lot and im very grateful. Thank you Karen!
I have to say Karen was A-Freakin-mazing!!!!!!
She has made me see things from a different light and I have to say she was spot on with some of the things that concerned me. I am grateful for her help with my situation. I would not only recommend this service but Karen as well.
Karen has been wonderful to work with. She is level headed and brings me back to reality smoothly. She gives me concrete exercises to work on and focus my energy.
She listens well and I hope to come back to this counseling again in the future.
She's amazing and helped me through a lot of tough times. I would recommend her to everyone. Thank you Karen!
Karen was quick and direct with her advice, and helped me address many of the troubling factors of my life that brought me to teencounseling.com. I would strongly recommend her!
Karen has been wonderful and very helpful. I did not expect to get the support I needed online!
I've been working with Karen for a while now, and she's been awesome! I've worked in mental health so I kind of get the process of therapy, and I have to say I REALLY like her. Finding a good therapist can be taxing, and I'm quite grateful that I have her in my life.
She has been very helpful and checks in with me regularly, which I appreciate.
I would recommend Karen as she is understanding and supportive when listening to my struggles dealing with my life and career. She is both kind and considerate, and asks questions that have helped me understand my situation from a fresh perspective!
Karen is very helpful and she always responds quickly with her advice and helpful questions.
I have been working with Karen for awhile now.
I am so grateful for her input and a safe place to work through issues that I am trying to reconcile in my life.
I feel like I am the only person she is working with as her attention is quite extraordinary. She responds to me quickly, ongoing and with thoughtfulness.
Thanks Karen for your professionalism, openness, and personal way of being that makes it easier to bare my soul and dig through the hard stuff.
Karen Armstrong has been so helpful in a very difficult time in my life. Though we haven't met or even spoken over the phone before, I feel a connectedness that I did not feel with my last therapist. I have been easily and comfortably able to open up about myself and my past, as well as my upbringing and my goals for the future. She has been a sounding board and a great source of comfort for me. Though it seems as if I have all the answers and don't ask any questions, I've been able to make progress with her because I don't feel judged on how I am doing as a client in recovery from multiple issues. I feel as though I am able to reach my full potential.
My counselor Karen Armstrong is great she has motivated me to contest negative and irrational thoughts with the reality of what's going on my life and my feelings about myself and the people around me. So that I could be strongest I'm very thankful for all the messages sent to me that came at the right moment.
Karen has been so patient as I've just rambled on about my struggles with depression and self-doubt, and has provided really good insight and suggestions. It feels so good to have someone in your corner who will listen and have your back when you are so down. Thank you Karen!!
Karen has provided the perfect level of compassion and guidance I needed during a very difficult time in my life. I am very grateful for this online counseling service!
Karen has helped me from the start. She was a very good listener and knows exactly what I need out of life and knows what to say. She is nice and caring and makes sure I am okay. She gave me some amazing and helpful advice and also shared with me some tools that will help me with my anxiety. I definitely recommend her to anyone. She is a great counselor.
Karen is really great! It's nice to have someone that you can open up to that can both listen and help out at the same time. Thank you Karen.
Karen has great intuition. I'm pleased how much progress had been made in such a short time!
Karen is a great counselor. In a short time, she has given me a lot of great info and advice on coping with depression and anxiety, having a healthy relationship with food and dealing with the scars of emotional and verbal abuse. I highly recommend her.
Karen continues to be a supportive person with keen insights and is very helpful in guiding me through a thought process about things.
Karen provided really great counseling! She helped me put certain aspects of my life in better perspective.
Karen has been so helpful to me. I have definitely improved since working with her :)
Karen has been great. She is thoughtful and thorough in her approach to my situation. She has been very understanding, available and considerate during this process. She goes the extra mile to check in on me to see if I am okay, or if I need to talk.
Karen is very helpful. I hope she doesn't give up on me!
My counselor Karen is very knowledgeable and has helped me tremendously. She listens to my problems and observations, doesn't judge unfairly, and has great insight into how I can make my life better.
Karen is great! She has helped me at a time when I would not have been able to have had traditional therapy because of scheduling. She works with me on creating a tool-based method for getting better which is great when you are always on the go.
Been talking to Karen for a couple days and I really appreciate all of the support she has given me and a fresh perspective from the outside. I do not have many people I can trust with my problems right now and I think Karen genuinely cares.
Karen is a wonderful, supportive counsellor. She has helped me learn coping skills for anxiety, stress, and relationship issues. She also regularly follows up to see how I am doing.
A wonderful counselor. Objective, direct, patient and kind all in one service. The kind of support I needed to get me through a painful relationship breakdown.
Karen is been very non-judge mental - always trying to be positive and encouraging to look at the good things I have and answer the questions about the better coping skills I have rather than what is negative which is something I wholeheartedly needed. She also gives actual advice and things to try. I'm extremely happy with the choice of therapist!!!
Karen has been absolutely amazing, I feel I have come so far in such a short time through speaking to her. I ramble quite a lot and she is great at picking out the important bits and getting me to focus on them. She has also given me some very helpful documents and things to read. She has taught me some great ways to deal with my emotions healthily and made me look at things in ways that I never have before. My mind-set has changed for the better and this is something that will stay with me for the rest of my life. When I first started speaking to her I felt like my life was falling apart, now I am hopeful for the future. Words could not describe how grateful I am to Karen and all of the help she has given me
Karen has helped me deal with a difficult situation. She took seconds to figure out what was going on and give me guidance with compassion for my distress. I would recommend her anytime.
Amazing help! I can finally function again.
Karen has been great. I have learned a lot from her. She always checks in to see how things are going and responds quickly. I am lucky to have found her!
Talking with Karen has helped me become more emotionally aware. I am still learning to talk about my feelings, but it is the first time in a while that I don't cry thinking about the loss of my mother. I don't know where I'd be without her. I'm grieving and that's okay.
I feel like Karen replies so quickly and has figured out the root to some of my problems, which in turn helps us to work through the issues better. I also appreciate some of the additional documents she sends over.
Karen has been a great therapist for me and would recommend her. She has given me some valuable insights that have helped me become more positive.
Karen has been very helpful with giving me feedback and understanding my problems. I highly recommend her!
I think Karen is a very smart, intuitive, action-oriented person. I feel she knows what it is you are trying to say when you are not or cannot be direct. In our textural conversations, I felt very heard. She herself is very direct in her feedback which is refreshing but sometimes a hard pill to swallow. Thanks Karen.
Karen has been amazon and really has given me the support and perspective to go through my rough challenge.
I have come a long way since I first contacted Karen. I have a lot of respect for Karen and gratitude for all the support she gave me. I needed a strong focused person on my side when I was at my lowest point. Karen helped build my confidence up and helped me believe again that I had the right to exist, to be happy, to see my son and to have pride at work. I wrote very long messages, but Karen was able to cut through all my long ramblings and helped me see what was really important. Karen helped me to focus on listing the most important goals and how I could realistically achieve them. With the help of Karen I kept making small progress towards these goals, and with the help of Karen I stayed on track and avoided distractions and overcame setbacks. The most important thing for me at the time was to get access to my son again. I had no lawyer and had to represent myself in court and do all the paper work myself. I was suffering from depression and anxiety and unable to work but with the help of Karen I went through the whole horrible family court process on my own and eventually reached a settlement with my ex-wifeâ€™s lawyers. This was incredibly stressful and there were times when the stress was so much I wanted to give up.
My relationship with my son suffered during this period as I did not see him for over 7 moths, but with Karen in my corner I decided to continue fighting.
Whilst going through these horrible court hearings I also somehow managed to restart working again after being off work for 6 months. The hardest part was restarting work as my colleagues were aware that I had been off work due to mental illness and had been hospitalized for this. However I got over this fear of people knowing about me. It has been over two months now since I returned to work again. I have also been able to turn in projects on time, maybe not with exceptional quality but I would say good quality. And most importantly I now have access to my son again. It is not a perfect settlement but I get to see my son which is important, and I can build on this. I have had three days with him so far and they have been amazing days.
Talking with Karen has helped me with my anxiety immensely. She has given me tools to use not only to calm down but also to lower the frequency of the anxiety attacks. While also reassuring me that the efforts that I'm making are making a difference. Her expertise and natural caring demeanor has given me exactly what I needed to persevere in my life goals.
I've had such a great experience with Karen so far. She is quick to reply to my messages and is able to filter through all my thoughts and get me to focus on the solutions. It's great having 24/7 support during this transitional period in my life. I highly recommend Karen!
Karen has really helped with this hard time in my life. Her advice is smart and thoughtful. I'm grateful we can talk, and she makes me feel better about what's going on with my relationship.
I was feeling lost and confused and if I wouldn't have found this program, and they would not have matched me up with Karen. I probably would have lost my mind. it's nice to have someone so knowledgeable about every aspect of what was going wrong in my life at that point to talk to you. and she is a wonderful lady and I am so appreciative for her!
Very helpful and responds in a timely manner!
Karen is a genuine, compassionate person who takes the time to provide thoughtful responses. I feel like I have a friend to confide in.
In the short time that I have been talking to Karen she has clarified so much of my confusion that I can't imagine life without her. Her intuitive powers are like a laser beam that cut through the endless static and confusion that comprises most of my thought processes. She knows just what to say and when to say it and is proving to be priceless in guiding me through the minefield that is my life right now.
Just within the last 20 minutes she has clarified a point that has haunted me for years but that no one else has been able to clearly define. The hard part, is facing how good she is because with Karen, you have to face some hard facts about yourself that aren't always complimentary. But I appreciate this since it shows she isn't just phoning her work in, she is right there with you. Karen is a rare gift and a person that I feel privileged to talk to. I'm at a kind of crossroads in my life and she came along at just the right time. I was out of answers and only had questions and she is brilliant at answering them.
She helps me out alot more than she ever could know
Karen is Truly wonderful, always incredibly understanding as to whatever issues you have going on and always a swift response there is a delay due to UK and US time difference but that is to be expected. I like the fact Karen is critical and analytical she doesn't simply show you how to cope with something but also how to prevent the same issue from happening in the future. Honestly as good as a weekly councillor session. However this is whenever you need it :D
Talking my issues out with Karen has helped me tremendously. I feel like I can be open and honest with her about my issues and get an unbiased and therapeutic response from her. I plan to continue to use teen counseling's service and keep on with my therapy.
Karen is attentive, validating, honest, extremely helpful and kind. She has been very easy to talk to and very straight forward when asked for a direct opinion. Hard to find someone who'll be both honest and kind, but she certainly is. She has been most helpful with my current situation. More so even, than any other professional I've sought! I will definitely be keeping her number and this service in my contacts list. What a great site. If you need assistance, Karen is wonderful.
Karen is great at listening to what you are saying and taking the time to understand where you are coming from. She also has great insight and ideas to help you see things from another perspective and take steps to overcome your obstacles.
She is great. Karen has been professional but at the same time compassionate and someone you can trust. Because of her my family house is not in foreclosure. She has been my Angel.
Karen has been very supportive and available through a very difficult period. Her ability to reflect back and give clarity has been very fruitful.
Karen has been great. Mindful, attentive, patient. I've gotten a lot out of my sessions with her.
When I came to Karen I was a wreck. I was drinking heavily and at the end of a bad divorce. Karen helped me to figure out my triggers for drinking. She helped me focus on getting through each stressful situation without drinking and helped me to work through the problem instead of reaching for a bottle. Karen also helped me bring closure to my marriage. Together with Karen I have found some peace and have not had a drink in quite sometime. Although I know I still have work to do yet, because of Karen's help, I know I can complete my journey to a healthy lifestyle and live without drinking for the rest of my life. Thank you so much Karen, you really did save me.
Karen has been a great help to me during my divorce. She always responds in a timely manner and even on the weekends!
I'm so glad I chose teen counseling for my therapy needs. I get to talk with Karen all day everyday if I need to. The convenience and accessibility are awesome!
She has a great understanding of my situation and has helped me with ideas and given me sound advice on how to cope with my divorce and narcissistic husband.
Karen is a great listener and really helps with finding solutions. She is very good with replying and at the same time giving you time to elaborate. I wasn't sure if I wanted to continue with the format of BH at first but through my week trial as I continued to talk to Karen, I decided that it is definitely helping and working for me. She is great!
Having the chance to have someone to talk to without fear of judgement means the world to me. I also see a counselor in person, but having the chance to have Karen answer my emails during the day really helps me to understand why im feeling certain ways and how to cope with it.
I've only been with Karen a short time but during that time I've seen her intuitiveness and I am impressed she's very kind compassionate and can interpret exactly what you're feeling. I'm happy they chose her for me
Karen was always very prompt in responding to my messages, even multiple times in the same day. She is insightful and willing to help. I'd recommend her.
Karen is always available for me even when contacting after midnight. She has a down home attitude that is non threatening and calming. She is non judgmental and encouraging, a pleasure to converse with.
My counselor is Karen. She is one of the best counselor I ever met. I was so given up of life. After contacting Karen I feel better. Karen is kind and passionate character. Karen can understand anyone's feelings very well. I thank God for giving me such a friendly counselor. Karen is trust worthy and I trust Karen than anyone in my life. Thank you teen counseling for the help that given people like me who desperately need help. Thank you Karen and I wish you long life to help people. I recommend Karen to anyone who need counseling very much.
Karen and I have really just gotten started in therapy, but she is kind, sensitive, and insightful.
Karen is so correctly insightful. Even being through a computer, rather then face-to-face, she has caught on so well to my emotions and perspectives. She is able to read through our conversations and give advise in a thoughtful manner. She takes all angles into consideration and helps where the need is the highest. I appreciate her and her knowledge and understanding in human natures.
Have been blessed with her advice. Is to the point, empathetic and concerned. Thank you
I have been consulting Karen for some weeks now, and the experience has been tremendous. It's sometimes hard to explain, but Karen has been able to come back with some very useful and insightful answers. I have had counsellors before, but teen counseling is working for me superbly as I feel, if I can just understand and overcome the last remaining remnants of my emotional issues then I will be plain sailing. Karen, and teen counseling, have offered me a "jolt" back to reality for which I am truly grateful.
She is so sweet and available when you need her. And she is very easy to talk to I would recommend her 100%.
Karen is an amazing person who makes herself available as much as possible when I am in great need. She is very calming and I appreciate her help more than words can express!
Thank you Karen!
I was so down when I subscribed to teen counseling.. I was able to let out all my problems the very next day when I have Karen to help me. What I appreciate is her availability at all times. Her responses have been immediate. We have exchanged many messages in just one day. That was so important to me feeling that there is someone who is listening and who provides support instantly. The on line help is so very helpful, mainly for people like me who are shy, introvert. I was able to get things off my chest without any restraint..
Thanks for your valuable help and advice, Karen .
Karen was amazing. I was going through a rough patch and she has really helped me through. I will defiantly talk to her again when I need to. I am not sure how I would have gotten through today without crying without her, but she really did help me tremendously.
Karen is a very thoughtful and insightful therapist. She is skilled and compassionate. After many years of abuse I felt that no one could ever understand or even care about what I am going through. Her special talents have helped me in my difficult times to move forward and work through the impossibilities.Â I give her a tremendous thanks for being a part of my life and for being the therapist that I need to grow and be successful on my walk out of domestic violence and the shame I've carried for so long.Â I will take what she has taught me throughout my life journey. Karen has the gift of connecting from the heart.Â She leads you with questions to discover the strength inside to find what you need within yourself to recover and move forward in life.Â She knows when to push, when to cheer and when to let you be, very valuable when you've been taken down to your knees by the struggles in life.
As a victim of domestic violence, with Karen in my life I really feel that I finally have someone in my corner that can help me become a survivor and no longer a victim. When I had no one else in this world Karen has came along side with compassion and understanding to show me the strengths within myself to get up every morning and take on the impossible.
So very grateful for her patience in helping me resolve so many issues with grief. After her compassion, I was able to sort through issues that I've allowed to prevent me from moving forward.
Karen has been very patient and kind and has offered lots of good advice. IT has helped simply having someone non judgemental to talk to and when ever I have sent a message Karen has replied very quickly so I have had the feeling that she has been there for me. Thank you. It's been a very helpful process.
Karen has a way of helping me through my problems while also helping me keep and maintain my dignity during some of the worst problems I was facing.
I had a massive breakthrough that although recent, has already changed my life so much and so positively. It's a change for my entire future, and has blown my mind! It was something I never would have known or imagined to do by myself. With Karen's advice, I have given myself permission to act a certain way, to keep some of my emotions for myself, and to not be walked all over. The result with these small behaviour changes has been so rewarding, and really nothing has changed, my feelings certainly haven't - just how I act and how i am perceived. I would not have had this breakthrough without Karen. She is also extremely prompt, replies fast, listens, understands, validates everything you say. You feel 100% certain she is on your side even if she guides you in a different direction. I have had bad counselling experiences in the past and know that many counsellors do not have that skill.
Karen is very understanding and easy to talk to. She gives you time to explain and makes the effort to understand when you can not find the words yourself. She helped me through a very difficult time where I felt completely helpless. She was there whenever I needed and did not limit the time on sessions to help me through the problems I was experiencing. I would recommend this site and Karen specifically to anyone who needs that extra support. I believe, she is/has and will continue to help me through the struggles I face with my mental health.
