About me and my therapy practice

A Counsellor & Psychotherapist in the Great Barr Area of Birmingham who offers a confidential, warm, accepting & empathetic environment for you to explore & work out any feelings & emotions you may wish too in my own private therapeutic practice. My primary approach is Person-Centred which means I will listen to you without any judgment and explore the world you perceive in a safe and tentative way adhering to professional and ethical boundaries set by the BACP, so that you have the time and space to work out what you need to, in the knowledge that whatever you say is will be fully confidential. I offer the first session at half the price of a full session as I believe it is important for you to fee safe and secure with the counselling process and the surroundings be it for short or long term. The first session will also have an assessment process to identify needs and appropriate support. Once you are happy to continue with a second session, we can set goals or even just see where the therapy takes us over the time you choose.
