About me and my therapy practice

Are you struggling with experiences of anxiety, depression, or other signs of difficulties in your life? If you find yourself suffering from experiences that can be overwhelming or seem impossible to deal with, you do not have to face these alone. 

My name is Simon and I am a qualified counsellor (BA(Hons), MBACP) in Birmingham offering a compassionate and confidential therapy service that can help you to understand and overcome difficulties in a safe and supportive environment. 

Practice description

My approach is person-centred, a long-established form of therapy based on empathy, honesty and unconditional acceptance. Clients have told me I offer a soothing, grounding presence that helps create a safe environment for gaining new perspectives and empowering you to make changes that are right for you.

Having a background in studying English literature and facilitating creative writing workshops, I bring a sensitivity for creative practices to my work as a counsellor and welcome enquiries about how this can form a part of therapy. 

I also have a personal and clinical interest in the benefits that time outdoors in natural, green spaces can offer, working currently in an outdoor walk and talk therapy service with Living Well Consortium for NHS Talking Therapy clients. I am always happy to explore with clients who are interested ways in which nurturing a connection with the natural world can both complement and inform our work together.

I currently offer sessions on Fridays in-person at my office in Digbeth or online via video call. If you are considering getting in touch with me but feeling unsure, I am very happy to respond to emails, calls, or texts to arrange an informal 15-minute chat over the phone with me about how my counselling service can help you.

My first session

Counselling begins with an initial 50 minute assessment meeting, during which I will ask questions about your experiences and history, as well as your reasons and intentions for contacting my practice. This is so I can begin to get a sense for your concerns in the context of your life and world, and so you can speak freely in your own words about what is troubling you. I will encourage you to ask me any questions you may have about counselling and my practice, so that we can then decide whether it is appropriate for us to work together.

If we agree to work together, I will contract with you to build a safe and confidential therapeutic relationship, the aim of which is to support and empower you to make the choices that are right for you. There is no right or wrong thing to focus on and whatever you bring will be of importance. 

Subsequent counselling sessions are normally 50 minutes on a weekly basis, unless agreed otherwise. I can offer to work on a short-term basis, normally 8-12 sessions followed by a review, or on an open-ended, long-term basis.
