Counselling and Psychotherapy in Sutton Coldfield, Birmingham.
I am a qualified counsellor using an integrative approach in my work with clients. I offer confidential professional counselling from comfortable private offices in Sutton Coldfield, Birmingham.
In my 'integrative approach' I call on several theoretical frameworks from both Psychodynamic and Humanistic traditions. However, the work itself takes a relational style with a focus on using the therapeutic relationship to help provide a structure and a place to help with the wide range of difficulties that can affect us in our daily lives and relationships.
Working in private practice I provide caring and professional counselling/psychotherapy and all work undertaken is strictly confidential.
