About me

My name is Andy and I am a fully qualified and experienced psychotherapist in Birmingham. I work from home in a comfortable and confidential space based in Kings Heath, centrally located in Birmingham and the wider West Midlands areas. Free onsite parking is available.

Clients seek counselling & psychotherapy for various reasons. It is often because of the difficulties and challenges in daily lives that sometimes become overwhelming and may impact upon relationships, work, and personal and professional judgements. It is sometimes beyond the control of the individual to address those issues without professional help.

I offer you a chance for you to reflect on the difficulties or problems you are experiencing. with someone outside of your everyday life. Together we can explore your situation in a way that leads to fresh perspectives - and perhaps a new understanding of yourself.

Member organisations


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.

This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
