About us

St John’s is a team of counsellors based in Bromsgrove, providing therapeutic counselling to individuals, couples or young people/children in need of support while they deal with whatever difficulties life has thrown at them.  This is particularly relevant at the moment, as we all adjust to the uncertainty and change that has occurred recently, and looking at what the "new normal" may mean for us.

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

  • Offering a range of different modalities, 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 accessible as possible to our clients, we have:

  • Appointments available 6 days a week, including most evenings
  • 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 if possible, and to arrange an initial appointment promptly (often within one week, dependent on therapist and timeslot).

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.

Accredited register membership

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

Accredited Register Scheme

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.

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

Fees

We have a range of fees, depending on the therapist.  However, as a guide, you can expect to pay £45 - £55 for individual counselling, and £60-£70 for couples counselling.  We also have a low-cost option (£15), provided by our counselling trainees.  Some of our counsellors consider offering lower rates in certain circumstances, so if cost is a barrier to you seeking out counselling, please get in touch with us to discuss what we may be able to offer you.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
