Denise Lynch, MBACP, BA (Hons) Person-Centred Counselling & Psychotherapy
Solihull Wellbeing Clinic
15 Highfield Road
So you're considering counselling. It takes a lot of courage to take the first step. I am passionate about offering you a confidential and safe space where you can be yourself without fear of judgement.
I appreciate how daunting it can be to enter into counselling. I am friendly, empathic and supportive and I will offer you the space you need to explore your feelings and your emotions.
I work in a person-centred way, which means that I am led by you. I do not believe that I am the expert in your life; I believe that the answers to the problems you are encountering lie within you.
I am here to help you find the best way forward for you and will support you to make positive changes in your life.
I am also a qualified ACT Alcohol Practitioner (https://act-alcohol-denise-lynch.business.site). The ACT programme offers assistance and guidance to help you resolve alcohol issues by looking at triggers and identifying destructive cycles. Understanding your own patterns helps to put you back in control of your drinking.
Sessions are available in Hall Green - both off and on street parking outside. Local train stations and bus routes within walking distance.
I offer an initial first session at a discounted rate of £30.00 to give you a chance to see if we could work together. If you would like to know more about how counselling could work for you, please feel free to get in touch.
Flexible daytime and evening appointments available.

During our first session we can talk about how counselling may progress. This will give you a chance to see if I am the counsellor for you and give you an idea about the potential changes. This initial session is offered at a reduced rate of £30.
Cash payment at the end of each session or direct bank payment 24 hours prior to each session.
If for any reason you have to cancel a session, then I will only ask for 50% of the fee if less than 24 hours notice is provided.
If you provide more than 24 hours notice, there will be no charge.
I currently have availability Tuesday afternoon/evenings and Wednesday morning and evening and offer face-to-face counselling short or long term.
