About me and my therapy practice
My name is Patricia Pataki. I am a fully qualified BACP registered counsellor offering short-term and long-term counselling for adults. I am based next to the Bullring in Birmingham city centre.
I offer a warm, safe and confidential environment to support you with whatever you choose to bring to counselling.
I have particular experience and success in working with stress, anxiety, depression, trauma and low self-esteem but have knowledge and experience in all areas. I also have an interest in working with difference and diversity (including sexuality) and my work is clinically supervised by a leading expert in my field.
Due to my knowledge in CBT I can offer safe and effective techniques to deal with low mood and anxiety. CBT is an approach that focuses on the present instead of dwelling in the past. It is a practical way of alleviating stress in our everyday lives.
About my approach
I am integrative which means that I integrate multiple therapeutic approaches (mainly humanistic, CBT and psychodynamic) during my work.
I believe that the relationship between client and counsellor (the therapeutic relationship) is the strongest healing force within therapy, so I will take earning and preserving your trust very seriously. I will always listen to you and I will help you sort through your thoughts and feelings, to help you gain a deeper understanding of yourself and life in general.
If this sounds like something you are be interested in doing, you may contact me by phone or via email.
