About me

Hello my name is Stephanie and if you are reading this I would like to welcome you in making the first steps in accessing support. The last two years have been an extraordinarily difficult set of circumstances and I would like to let you know that you are not alone and the anxious and depressive feelings that you may be experiencing are completely understandable. If you feel ready to seek support from a professional, I will ensure to put your needs first by offering you the space and time to make sense of what is and has been going on for you.

I am registered with the BACP as a fully qualified integrative counsellor offering a professional, friendly, safe and effective space in Kings Norton. Practicing as an integrative counsellor is a recognition that there is not a 'one size fits all' approach to therapy. I see each client as an individual and treat them accordingly. My aim is to assist in developing enough support and insight to help you find yourself and to support you in making the choices you truly want.

My First Session

An informal assessment will be conducted for our first 50 min session in order to provide the time and space to properly consider what has brought you to therapy. This initial session also provides a chance for us to meet, for me to find out more about what has brought you to therapy, and for us to decide whether counselling, with me, is the best way forward.

Practice description

Sessions take place at The Health and Wellbeing Centre in Kings Norton, which provides a range of health and wellbeing services through qualified and experienced practitioners.

The centre has been open throughout covid restrictions for essential services, as supporting mental health issues. The centre is still adhering to 'Covid-19 safeguarding protocol' which we hope will re-assure you that we are taking all necessary precautions to minimise the risk of spreading infection.

Training, qualifications & experience

My training includes a foundation degree in integrative counselling (with distinction) and currently studying for a MSc in Integrative Counselling to become a psychotherapist. My 4 years counselling experience, combined with my own life experiences and journey through personal therapy has provided me with additional understanding and empathy on how it feels to be in the client’s chair.


Currently studying: Master's degree Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy Studies MSc (UKCP Accredited), 2020 – 2023

BACP registration, 2020

Foundation Degree Intergrative Counselling (BACP Accredited), 2017-2020

Introductory Certificate in Counselling, 2017

The Integrative Counselling Foundation Degree has given me an in-depth understanding into the significance of the counselling relationship, in placing the client at the centre of the way I work. Through a balance of discovering relevant theory, placement practice, personal and group reflection has broadened my understanding of what counselling is for me, in developing my own coherent integrative model.

My primary aim of undertaking the MSc Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy Studies is to facilitate my academic and practical professional development further and as part of the requirements for professional registration as a Psychotherapist.

Member organisations


British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
