I am a South Birmingham based therapist with a psychology background offering appointments with young people and adults. I offer a flexible, non-judgmental and confidential therapeutic approach. Sessions are 50 minutes face to face (free parking) and longer appointments can be discussed based on requirements. Skype and telephone sessions are £30 per 50 minutes and face-to-face work is £50 per 50 minutes. I can also offer group work but please contact me regarding this. If there is no waiting list, I can offer appointments within a two week period.
Since completing my degree in psychology and my masters in person-centred counselling psychology, I have received further training in solution focused therapy, compassion focused therapy, transactional analysis and EMDR. I also have over three years’ experience with CBT and mindfulness. As I work integratively, I will formulate your personal therapy plan with you in the first assessment to address your needs, assessing which approach will be most suitable. I am available for short and long term work depending on your requirements. I have also worked in senior schools so am able to work with adolescents. I have wide ranging experience; I have worked with adolescents in schools, adults, in GP surgeries, and in private mental health care at The Priory.
As I work flexibly, we can work to set goals (which you can bring to session or we can decide together) and use my counselling skills to help you explore your issues. Coming from a person-centred background, I work with the idea that you are your own expert and I am here to assist you on your journey to change. I am available for short or long term work; we can decide together which way of working will suit your needs.
Please contact me via email for an informal discussion regarding your therapeutic needs. Counselling is based on a the therapeutic relationship and a discussion prior to first meeting will help us both to determine whether we are a match for treatment. If you leave your number in an email, I will be happy to arrange a mutually convenient time to call.
