About me

I am an experienced adolescent, adult, couple, family and group counsellor/psychotherapist. I live in Stourbridge in the West Midlands and work in-person and online from my home office on Bell Vue (road) in Wordsley. I have been self-employed since 2005 and am willing to work with anyone who wants help to deal with something going on in their life. My fee depends on your income: the less you earn, the lower the fee. Give me a call or send an email to make an appointment.
