Sharon Savage Fd.A., MBACP (Accred).
Hello and thank you for visiting my profile.
I am an Accredited BACP Counsellor. You can find my name on the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists register. I am qualified to level 5. I offer long and short term counselling. I am also a qualified Minfulness Trainer. I am able to see you in Bromsgrove, Kings Norton, Redditch, Droitwich or Alvechurch. I am a Recognised Provider for Vitality (formally PruHealth), AXA PP Healthcare and Healix.
There are times in all of our lives when things feel difficult. Maybe you are finding it difficult to cope in some way. Things might feel out of control, or you may feel sad or confused because of something that has happened. Maybe you want things to change, or want to change something about yourself.
Counselling can help you to understand and deal with difficult feeling and situations. It can give you the safe space you need to explore your thoughts and feelings. Within our therapeutic relationship you can share what you need to, without fear of judgment. I can give you a confidential space to explore your thoughts and feelings, somewhere where you can feel supported, secure and understood. We can work together to increase your understanding of your self, and move towards achieving your goals.
Having a safe, confidential space to talk things through, with someone who is not involved in our problems can really help to clear our head. Counselling can also help you to look more closely at the difficulties you are having. It can help you to look at unhelpful thoughts and patterns of behaviour, and to understand where they have come from.
Counselling is work that we do together. My aim is for us to identify what you want from our time together. I am not here to advise you, but I can support you in finding a greater understanding of you and your situation, and help you to think about changes and finding a new way forward.
I work in private practice and within the NHS IAPT service. I also have experience or working in a hospice setting, and of working with stroke and acquired brain injury survivors and carers.
I offer reduced rates for students and those on low incomes.
Please feel free to contact me via e-mail, text or phone call. If I am unable to answer your call please leave a message or text me with your number and I will be happy to call you back and talk about how working with me might be helpful.
