About me

Having worked for over 30 years in the National Health Service, and the last 22 years specifically in a Mental Health environment providing psychological therapy, my private practice provides a Counselling and Psychotherapy service with a particular focus on Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. This involves both brief and long-term face-to face therapy work.

The therapy offered has developed from many years of experience and training in a range of therapy skills and techniques; this enables clients to navigate their way through current reactive conditions in addition to historical and unresolved painful issues, and move towards the effective self-management of their life situation.

Common and enduring conditions including anxiety, depression, panic disorder, stress and work related issues, PTSD, bereavement, anger management, redundancy, OCD, current and historical issues of abuse, relationship and family issues, addictions, eating disorders, self-harm, long-term and medically unexplained conditions are addressed through therapy.

My practice covers the West Midlands, Worcestershire and Birmingham, and is located in Bromsgrove, Worcs. I can also offer Telephone Counselling.

Further information

Counselling and Psychotherapy

Counselling and Psychotherapy provide opportunities to talk through reactions to current issues and difficulties and enable exploration of historically based and unresolved issues.

Counselling appointments begin within an Assessment, and each appointment lasts for one hour. The number of appointments is dependent upon the needs of the client, and is always within their control, as they are the expert on their own condition. The locus of work helps to confront and explore the issues which impact upon cognitive, emotional and behavioural reactions to life crises and traumas. In general terms, the model of approach is one of Brief Therapy with a Solution Focused emphasis. However, there is not a prescribed number of appointments as this will be dependent upon the needs and recovery of the client.
