About me

Hello and welcome to my profile.

Counselling can help us to understand and deal with difficult situations, traumatic previous experiences and painful feelings. It can help us to increase our self-awareness, motivation and move towards achieving our own individual potential. It is an opportunity to talk openly about what is troubling us and to explore our thoughts and feelings in a safe, confidential and non-judgmental environment while feeling supported. It can help us to understand why we experience difficult times and support us through making hard decisions and making changes to our lives.

Counselling is work that we do together. At the beginning of the therapy, and indeed, throughout the therapy, my aim is for us to identify what you want from the sessions and how the therapy will work best for you. I am an Integrative Counsellor. I have studied various models of Counselling including Person Centered, CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy), Psychodynamic and Solution Focused, and use aspects of these individual models to inform my practice which means that I feel equipped to tailor how I work with you as an individual.

I am a qualified Counsellor and a registered member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy). I hold a current enhanced DBS certificate and am fully insured. I offer confidential therapy for individual adults and young people (over the age of 11) within my private practice in the Redditch, Bromsgrove and South Birmingham areas, as well as some home visits. I am committed to delivering good practice and adhere to the BACP ethical guidelines (details may be found on the BACP's website) and regularly attend Supervision and Continual Professional Development training.

After a career in Customer Service, Family Support and raising my family I retrained as a Counsellor which involved 5 years of formal training and a closely supervised placement. My Counselling experience includes working with a broad age range of people, with a broad range of difficulties and situations. I have worked within a hospice setting, gaining experience of working with bereavement, pre-bereavement, life-limiting illnesses and palliative care and carers. Within private practice, and while working with other Counselling agencies I have gained experience of working with issues such as anxiety, depression, relationship problems, abuse (sexual, emotional and physical), work related issues, and low self-esteem. I also deliver IAPT work.

I have training and experience of working with people with an acquired brain injury and their carers and have worked within a charity in supporting these individuals. During this time I set up and managed the charity's Counselling Service.

I am more than happy to provide any additional information so please feel free to contact me via e-mail, text or phone call. If I am unable to answer your call please leave a message or text me with your number and I will be happy to call you back.

If I am unable to offer you an appropriate appointment with myself, I may be able to offer you an alternative option.

I offer reduced rates for students and those on low incomes - please feel free to ask.
