About me

CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) UPDATE

I am offering counselling face-to-face, by video link and telephone.

Please get in touch for details.

~ "Thanks to Tim's genuine and empathetic approach, I was able to open up in a way that really helped me to explore my problems."

~ "As a result of my therapy, I now feel ready to move forward with greater optimism about life and without any self doubt."

Welcome

Life can be difficult.

There may be times when you feel overwhelmed or unable to cope, that you are struggling, stuck in a crisis or that nobody seems to care.

I can help.

As an accredited and highly-experienced therapist, I can offer you a safe and supportive environment in which to explore your thoughts and feelings. I can be that someone who will listen, help you to make sense of things, and help you to experience the healing process.

Helping adults and young people

I feel privileged to have helped many adults and young people overcome a range of issues, including:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety and panic disorders
  • Anger management issues
  • Grief and loss following bereavement
  • Relationship difficulties
  • Severe trauma
  • Physical, emotional or sexual abuse
  • Coping with a diagnosis of terminal illness
  • Gender identity
  • Self-harm and suicidal tendencies
  • Addiction.

Helping people with special needs

It’s also been my pleasure to support adults and young people with special needs, both as a counsellor and a care worker. These include:

  • Autism spectrum disorders (ASD)
  • Asperger syndrome (AS)
  • Attention deficit hyperactivity disorders (ADHD)
  • Bi-polar depression
  • Dyslexia
  • Severe epilepsy
  • Visual impairment.

How do I work?

I am a person-centred counsellor, and I integrate other approaches (such as CBT and solution-focused therapy), if I feel these will be helpful and appropriate. My approach recognises that some life experiences can stop you from feeling good about yourself and fulfilling your potential. It acknowledges that the best way to resolve your problems is to explore your feelings and thoughts is in a counselling relationship, with someone who you can trust to be on your side and see things from your point of view. By exploring your feelings, together we can make sense of them and know how to make sure they don’t bother you in the future.

I firmly believe the person-centred approach represents the best way of identifying the root cause of your problems and achieving a long-term solution, enabling you to successfully deal with any identical or similar challenges in the future. And in then working together, we can devise and implement any coping strategies, that will also help you deal with your concerns.

An accessible counselling service

I offer counselling in person, as well as by telephone and Skype.

My counselling rooms are situated in Wombourne.

There is plenty of free on-site parking.

The rooms are accessible by the number 9, 226, 255 and 256 bus routes.

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.

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.
