Andrea Andrews MBACP (Accredited)
Birmingham Counselling & Psychotherapy Centre
127-131 Pottery Road
I am an experienced humanistic counsellor and accredited member of the BACP offering one-to-one counselling on an open ended or short term basis. I work with a wide range of issues and can provide a confidential and safe space for you to bring whatever you want, or need, to explore.
I work on the basis that each person is born with the resources to do what is best for them. Unfortunately life can be very difficult at times and these resources can seem hard or even impossible to access. I believe that if people are given the right conditions, they will flourish and live fulfilling and satisfying lives.
My approach is to value the "whole" of you; your feelings, thoughts, experiences, beliefs, body process and behaviours. I would journey with you to raise your awareness and understanding of your feelings and thoughts, as well as the choices you make and how you relate to yourself and others. With increased awareness comes the ability to make satisfying choices and live more fully.
