I am an experienced BACP Registered and Accredited counsellor and psychotherapist. I work in private practice, where I offer a confidential space for individuals to start to talk and consider the changes they may need to make. I draw on Jungian and Psychodynamic theories and models in my work with people.
Issues that I offer therapy for, include: anxiety; depression, relationship difficulties, managing difficult life events (past or present); emotional difficulties, lack of fulfilment and concerns about meaning in life. I offer my services face to face, to people from the West Midlands, Worcestershire and beyond. My consulting room is in Bromsgrove.
You may be feeling depressed or anxious, troubled by relationships at home or work, struggling perhaps to cope and to make sense of it all. Life may feel overwhelming at times. You may feel lost and unsure where or whom to turn to. Psychotherapy can help you to cope more effectively, get a better sense of yourself and change the way you relate to others.
As well as looking at your current difficulties, we will look at what you have experienced in the past, work with your dreams and other images as a way of trying to gain a deeper understanding of what might be happening for you unconsciously. The aim would be to access your untapped resources, as well as addressing how you have created obstacles unwittingly; hindrances that trip you up and prevent you from living as you would like to.
How therapy is arranged
I welcome enquiries by telephone or e-mail (M 07949592475 or firstname.lastname@example.org). A brief telephone conversation follows, which can help you explain a little about your situation and decide if you would like us to meet.
If we decide to meet, you will be able to tell me in more detail about yourself and what it is that has prompted you to look into psychotherapy. You may have questions for me and I will discuss these with you, to help you decide what you want to do next.
I generally work in an open-ended, long-term way, but am also able to work on a short-term counselling basis. Sessions can be once, twice or three-times weekly, as required, and depending on what you are looking for.

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
