Jane Broom Registered Member MBACP (Accred)
Hello. I am a BACP Accredited Counsellor and Psychotherapist able to work with both adults and young people, practicing from my private therapy room in the centre of Stourbridge. I am on the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) Register and am guided by their Ethical Framework for the Counselling Professions.
You may be seeking support for a specific issue such as anxiety, low mood, bereavement - or have a general sense that things aren’t quite right in your world. Whatever your reasons, taking this first step towards setting up counselling may feel rather daunting, so do please get in touch and I’d be happy to talk through any questions that you might have about how I work and what to expect.
It’s the relationship that we develop together that will be key so I aim to provide a safe, confidential space in which I hope you will feel accepted and heard.
I work integratively which means I blend together different theoretical approaches – person-centred, CBT (cognitive behavioural therapy) and attachment theory. As sessions progress this allows me the flexibility to develop with you 'the blend' which best suits your needs. I am experienced in working with clients to a limited number of sessions where the focus needs to be very specific, as well as working long term.
I look forward to hearing from you.

I decided to re-train as a counsellor having personally experienced how transformative counselling can be. My previous work has been in corporate, educational and creative settings giving me a range of professional and personal experiences to draw upon.
I work in private practice in both Stourbridge and Birmingham. I have worked previously as a counsellor at Bereavement Support South Worcestershire which is based at St Richard's Hospice in Worcester. I have good experience of working with young people through being a Locum Counsellor at Haybridge High School and Sixth Form in Hagley, and a volunteer counsellor at King Edward VI College in Stourbridge.
