I have over 20 years experience of working as a therapist and am happy to support you with any current concerns on a short term basis, or for deeper issues support over a longer period.
When things feel rough - and you feel like withdrawing - it's often a good idea to get some help and talk to someone.
I have worked with loss, bereavement, relationship breakdown, anxiety, sexuality, depression, anger management, abuse, as well as the distress & confusion from recent or historical traumatic experiences. Working through these issues can be a very positive & liberating process.
Alongside my continuing professional development I am committed to pursuing my own personal growth and learning.
If you are new to therapy I can sometimes offer a session at half-price (£25) to see whether therapy, with me, suits you.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a UKCP (United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy) registered Gestalt Psychotherapist.
I have been fortunate enough to have worked as a therapist for 20 years.
My qualifications include a `Diploma in Counselling`, a `Masters in Human Relations & Counselling` and a `Masters in Gestalt Psychotherapy`. I'm also a member of three national therapeutic bodies, BACP, UKCP & GPTI to which I'm accountable.
I'm currently a Director of Birmingham Counselling & Psychotherapy Centre but have previously worked in industry and commerce, as well as local government as a lecturer and careers counsellor - so have a good range of working experiences to call on.
