Birmingham Counselling & Psychotherapy Centre
127 Pottery Road
Simply making contact with someone like myself can feel very difficult. Yet the need to face what troubles us can seem urgent. I understand that considering counselling can feel a little frightening. I treat every person who contacts me with respect and regard. A good way forward is an informal, no obligation, talk over the phone. You can ask any questions and decide if what I can offer would be helpful.
I work in a dedicated counselling & psychotherapy centre in Warley. It is a welcoming confidential and safe environment in which to explore problems.
I am an experienced counsellor and have worked with a wide variety of clients and client problems. These include depression, anxiety, stress, bereavement, loss, identity and relationship problems (at home, at work, and post retirement). I also have long-standing experience of many issues around addictions.
The issues a client may face may be of recent origin or long-standing. Sometimes the problems may feel undefinable or one may simply feel unhappy and not know why.
I offer counselling on both a short-term and long-term basis. Usually after one or perhaps two sessions we agree on a way forward for you.
My core approach is to consider how the past may influence present feelings, relationships and experiences. I believe that in therapy a client can develop hidden resources - promoting change and growth of new skills and capacities.
