About me

Welcome to my profile, my name is Debbie Reed and I operate from my private practice at St John's Counselling and Therapy Services in Bromsgrove. My aim is always to provide a safe and supportive environment for those aged 11 years and over from all walks of life.

My practice office is situated on the Kidderminster Road in Bromsgrove and over the last 10 years I have gathered a wealth of experience in many different and challenging issues which include, loss, bereavement, depression, anxiety, work related issues, stress, low self esteem, low self confidence, Separation and divorce, self harming, phobias, relationship issues, and personal self development.

I am an accredited member of the BACP, and also a memeber of UKATA,ITAA, GHR, all my work is guided by their code of Ethics.

Within my practice I offer one to one Integrative Humanistic counselling, that incorporates approaches such as, CBT, Transactional Analyisis, NLP, Gestalt, Mindfulness, Clinical Hypnotherapy, for individuals and couples. Appointments are available from Monday to Friday between 8.00am - 6.00pm to suit your schedule.

Further information

Counselling is about helping you to find ways to live your life more satisfactorily. To feel more comfortable with yourself and your relationships, to feel more in control, to make changes that might be needed, to come to terms with events in your life

People from all walks of life seek the help of professional, qualified counsellors. Many of us at some point in our lives require counselling and may need help to work through issues for example such as;

Generalised anxiety disorder
Family issues
Panic disorder
Anxiety
Low self esteem
Bereavement
Depression
Stress Management
Loss
Relationship issues
Phobias
Communication problems

My practice

The Therapy Hour is 50 minutes and offers a range of psychotherapy, counselling, supervision and consultancy services.

Whether you are interested in working with me as a private individual or as an organisation, your first point of contact will usually be an email or telephone call. We will usually spend some time on the telephone discussing your needs in an attempt to establish whether we are the right people for the job. If I am are unable to help, I will do my best to refer you to a practitioner or service that can.

If I think I am able to provide the kind of service you are looking for, I will invite you to an assessment or consultancy session. .

The initial assessment session is an opportunity for us both to assess whether counselling or therapy is something from which you would benefit, and for us to explore how we may work together.

At the end of the assessment, I will offer some feedback and will advise you as to whether or not I feel therapy would be beneficial. Some clients make an appointment to begin work there and then, while others prefer to go away and think about it. I'm more than happy that you should do this since your relationship with your therapist will be the most important element in the potential success or failure of the work you undertake.

Working Together
I would normally expect you to commit to an initial 6 sessions of work, usually (although not always) occurring once weekly. I find this often proves sufficient for those bringing relatively simple issues. For others, the six sessions offers a time-limited introduction to counselling and therapy, during which period I am able to assess needs and preferred style of working in more detail. For such clients, the review which takes place at the end of the initial period allows them to examine what they have achieved thus far and to consider what remains to be worked on. If we decide to continue, we will formulate a plan for continued work, usually in an open-ended contract.
