Heathrow Psychology was established in 2007 by Dr. Karlinsky. For most of the past thirteen years, Dr. Karlinsky worked independently so that she could be available to her family while her children were young. Since then, in addition to one on one therapy, she has collaborated with other mental health professionals running groups and workshops. Recently, she selected other counselors in training to work under her supervision, in order to treat as many people who are requesting services as possible.
The most important piece of Heathrow Psychology’s philosophy about mental health is that the therapists are people too. We know what you are feeling. We have felt it. If we haven’t had the experience, we have had one that may have been just as difficult or painful. We have our own stories, with ups and downs. We have fallen, failed, our relationships have ruptured, and been repaired. There isn’t a human being that comes through our doors that we judge to be any different or “less than” us. We are here to provide a service with which we have been educated, trained, tested, and researched. But the most important teachers have been our clients, and we remember that and uphold that respect always.
