About me

My service is being offered close to Birmingham City Centre. I work with clients who are experiencing symptoms of depression, symptoms of anxiety and trauma. I also offer bereavement counselling, couple counselling for couples and individuals experiencing relationship difficulties. Other parts of the service includes young people counselling and mentoring. Client can access the service by contacting me by email or telephone. Therapy or other interventions, is offered by face to face or over telephone and the initial session or assessment is offered on a face to face basis.

My goal as the therapist is to assist you to be and become to the best therapist to yourself, look after yourself so you can prevent having a setback after you have recovered from your distress and exit treatment. Merging this therapist goal with your goal as the client allows for us to work together in agreement to achieve your specific goal or reason for accessing therapy. We will develop a treatment plan together that is aimed at meeting your recovery using specific interventions proven repeatedly to improve mental health difficulties and reduce the likelihood of a relapse.

I am trained, qualified, experienced and accredited Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapist and my practice includes, treating client with mild to severe symptoms of depression and symptoms of the different anxiety disorders which are; Generalised anxiety disorder, Social anxiety disorder, Panic disorder, Health anxiety disorder, Post traumatic stress disorder as well as low self esteem presentation which presents with both symptoms of depression and symptoms of generalised anxiety disorder.

I am a trained qualified and experienced couples counsellor and young people counsellor and therapeutic counsellor. The service is offered in a confidential setting and is compassion focused with the warmth, empathy, understanding, acceptance and is non- judgemental. The foundation of treatment is built on a working relationship that is also a partnership where therapist and client make decisions together in their treatment and the client determine the goal or presentation for treatment. Treatment may involve one session or it may may long term and treatment will end when the client has achieved and can end therapy at anytime they believe they no longer need treatment of it treatment gains are not made.

My experience and training also allow me to work with young people who are experiencing difficulties engaging in education, training or employment at school or in University and is struggling with worries and depression and are ready yo engage in therapy.
