Hi I am Stuart and I am a BACP Accredited Counsellor and EMDR therapist I work in an integrative manner counselling people with all sorts of problems and issues including depression and anxiety. Together we can use the counselling relationship to help you to cope with various life events such as bereavement, divorce and loss etc. I am also trained to use EMDR treatment for people suffering from PTSD (Trauma). I can offer time-limited or open-ended counselling sessions at hopefully an affordable rate.
I offer a free initial assessment session and the reason for this is to make sure we both feel comfortable and are able to work together to ensure YOU get the help that YOU want.
Sessions last 60 minutes and I work in a secure room at Redditch Therapy Centre.
Please email me or telephone for more details. Sometimes it's nice to be able to talk things through with someone in a confidential space away from the stresses of the outside world.
