Bournville Counselling Practice (Eleni Kypridemos MBACP)
For me, counselling is vocational.
I feel passionately that everyone should be able to access therapeutic services of a high standard. We work together in an open and empathic way to bring issues into our awareness, choose to accept/not accept and ultimately find a place of healing in ourselves.
My experience has been predominantly working with vulnerable people and includes; military personnel, sexual abuse survivors, perpetrators/offending behaviour, alcohol and substance misuse, addiction, children and young people, homelessness, young adults, older adults, family and friend supports, refugee/asylum seeker.

You can expect to experience
A safe, confidential space to explore your feelings and concerns.
Be listened to by a trained counsellor who will offer focus, challenge and clarity.
Be challenged about some of the unhelpful feelings and behaviours that may be hindering your growth.
Encouragement to make positive choices for yourself.
counselling can be difficult painful work and I would encourage you to stick with it, hopefully seeing yourself change and move forward means that you will want to come.
I offer therapy for all types of issues.
I also offer specific therapy using a Orthodox Christian approach if desired.
