I am an experienced BACP and BABCP counsellor, I offer one to one counselling in a confidential setting. From time to time we are faced with difficulties /confusion. I will endeavour to help you address these issues that are preventing you from leading a more fulfilling and satisfying life. I offer a confidential, non-judgmental, empathic approach drawing on three main schools of psychology - Person Centered Psychodynamic, and CBT. I also use solution focused techniques.
Do you sometimes feel that life gets you down? Are there some difficulties or struggles that you would like to make sense of? Would you benefit from talking to someone who is empathic and non judgmental? I believe that when you come and see me that you feel listened to and herd,and that I genuinely try and feel what its like to walk in your shoes.
I came into counselling due to my own personal difficulties and struggles, dealing with loss/relationships and coping with painful emotions. At that time it felt as if there was nowhere to go and no one to talk to. If this sounds familiar then maybe I can help you.
Apart from my private practice I also work for the NHS in Birmingham. As a consequence I work with many presenting problems and have a wide experience of common difficulties including relationships,anxiety, low esteem and depression
I am committed to continuing personal and professional development and regularly attend training as specified in BACP and BABCP.
My practice is in Bromsgrove and close to M5 and M42 motorway junctions. Please feel free to phone or e-mail me or alternatively you can text me.I can usually offer appointments within a few days and if you prefer evenings or weekends then this can be arranged.
