About us

28 July 2021 - A limited number of Saturday morning slots are currently availabile in our Low Cost Service - please get in touch as soon as possible if you'd like to enquire about one of these spaces!

St John’s is a team of counsellors based in Bromsgrove, providing counselling to adults, couples and young people/children who need support in dealing with whatever difficulties they are experiencing.  It doesn't matter if these are long-standing issues, or more recent developments, we are able to help with whatever you're struggling with.

We understand the importance of finding the right person to work with, and so our range of therapists means that we can match you with the most appropriate professional, by:

  • Offering a range of different approaches, eg Integrative, Person Centred, CBT
  • Having both male and female counsellors
  • Providing a breadth of specialisms and experience
  • Working with specific issues, such as anxiety, depression, low mood, panic attacks and bereavement, as well as the less defined questions about who we are, undertanding why we feel the way we do, and behave in certain ways, and what we want out of life
  • Being available for short term or long term counselling

We also understand that the practicalities of attending counselling are also important factors, and so to make this as easy as possible for you, we have:

  • Appointments available 6 days a week, including most evenings
  • Miminal waiting times - we are often able to schedule an initial appointment within a week of you getting in touch with us (dependent on therapist and timeslot)
  • A range of fees, including a low-cost option provided by our trainee counsellors

We know that taking that first step towards counselling and reaching out for help can be daunting, so we aim to reply to all emails and calls within 24 hours whenever possible.

Training, qualifications & experience

All therapists at St John’s are qualified counsellors (or in the case or our trainee colleagues, working towards it), and all (including trainees) are members of a professional body, eg the BACP, NCS.

Within the St John’s Team, we have a wide range of qualifications, experience and specialisms, and so we will be able to work with you, whatever difficulties you are experiencing.

Member organisations *

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

We have verified that at least one professional at this organisation is registered with the relevant professional body.

Therapies offered
