Welcome to Avenues Counselling Services.
I provide a confidential, professional service for you to explore your thoughts, feelings and behaviours in a safe and supportive environment.
Counselling can help you gain a deeper understanding of yourself and work towards a more fulfilling and resourceful experience of life. You may wish to focus on a specific issue or be feeling generally low in mood, anxious or depressed and not be sure why.
Avenues Counselling Services is based in the centre of Birmingham and offers counselling to adults and young people. Just 5 - 10 minutes walk from New Street Station, it is ideally located for easy access by all modes of transport.
