I am a member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists and work mainly from a person-centred perspective, although the approach we take will be tailored to suit your needs and your aims.
Current research suggests that it is the relationship between the client and counsellor that is as important as the approach.
Before becoming a counsellor I spent many years in industry and running my own business. I believe that my life experience outside the counselling environment has given me great insight into many of the issues my clients bring.
As a member of the BACP, I abide by their code of ethics, and undertake continuous professional development.
I work face to face both short and long term.
If you are reading this Profile the chances are there is something in your life causing you concern, and if thats the case perhaps two questions are running through your mind:
Will counselling help me?
How do I select a counsellor that I can work with?
To help you answer these questions I am happy to offer an initial session/assessment free of charge. if after this initial meeting, we both feel we can work together further session can be booked and paid for one at a time with no obligation to a set number of sessions on your part.
I am located just north of Bromsgrove, within 2 miles of J4 of the M5 and within 2 miles of J1 of the M42
