Karin Graber MBACP, Psychologist M.Sc., Psychotherapist MAS
I am a Psychologist and BACP registered psychotherapist. I offer a warm and confidential service in a quiet Health Clinic in Harborne.
I have many years of experience in working with people in challenging life circumstances or with Mental Health difficulties. I work in an integrative way, meaning I draw upon different therapeutic approaches (for instance interpersonal, cognitive-behavioural, schema therapy) as they make sense in light of your problems and preferences.
In an initial session, I would want to get to know you and your current life situation and we could explore what you hope to get out of therapy. And of course,this is also a chance for you to find out if I am the right therapist for you. I offer this initial session at a reduced rate of just £15 with no obligation to continue.
Please feel free to call me for a chat if you want to find out more or to book a first appointment. If I can't pick up the phone when you call me, I will call back as soon as is possible.
Whatever your life journey may look like, I am here to support you. Together, we can tackle your problems, make sense of your life experiences and work towards reaching your goals.
