About me

Has life thrown something in your path that you are struggling to make sense of? Are you aware that your stress or anxiety levels are heightened and you are confused by these feelings? Then perhaps you need someone to talk to, to help you make sense of the confusion you are feeling and the unexplained emotions that can feel overwhelming and leave you feeling alone.

My experience includes my own private practice based in South Birmingham and working for the Priory Wellbeing Centre in Birmingham City Centre. I have also worked within the NHS profession for the past 13 years and was previously working within a Charity organisation for 5 years.

At times we can all face difficulties and through my work, I have experience of working with a range of issues including Depression, Self-Harm & Bereavement. I am a qualified registered BACP person-centred counsellor who works within the BACP Ethical Framework and am fully insured. I offer long term or short term counselling dependent on individual needs.

What to expect

An initial assessment is required to enable us to discuss your goals of counselling and the ways in which I work. This will allow us both to establish if we can work together and is an important part of the therapeutic relationship going forward.

Sessions are offered on a weekly basis and lasts 50 minutes.  Parking facilities are available without charge and there are local bus routes close by, making accessibility trouble-free.
