Are you feeling depressed or anxious or don’t feel good about yourself? Maybe relationships with others are difficult and you feel lonely, or work is stressful. Or you might just know that something is not right. Are you seeking to change direction and live life to the full?
If you can relate to any of these then therapy offers you a way to a better place and can help you feel differently. Many people find it really helpful to talk with someone who cares and who has the skills to help them to find a way forward. This is what I offer. By coming to therapy with me I will give you a safe space where you can share your difficulties and burdens and work on the issues you bring.
I will listen to you without judgement, it can be powerful to be properly heard and to have someone alongside you in times of distress. We can work together to untangle your thoughts and feelings, and improve your ways of coping and being in control. I may gently challenge at times to help you reach a better place. As a person I am warm, approachable and caring, and will sensitively support you to heal and change and grow.
Please feel free to contact me and find out more. We can have a chat on the phone and you can ask any questions you may have. I appreciate how reaching out for help can be difficult and will be respectful of that.
If you would then like to talk further, that could be followed by a first session with me. We can talk more about your concerns and what you might want from therapy. The session will allow you to see if I am the right person for you and whether the kind of therapy I offer suits you. If following that we decide to work together then we would meet for a 50 minute session each week.
Would you like to know more? Then phone (if I can't answer please leave a voicemail) or email me.
My practice is located at the Solihull Well Being Clinic, Highfield Road, Hall Green. It is wheelchair accessible with parking and bus routes (e.g. 6 and X20) nearby, and about 15 minutes walk from Hall Green station. It is well positioned for south Birmingham and Solihull (although my counselling and psychotherapy clients also come more widely from the West Midlands and Warwickshire).
Timescales and fees
Sessions are usually weekly and last 50 minutes. The length of therapy varies, it is your choice and depends on what you want to consider. We can start with six sessions and then review towards the end to discuss if that is enough or if you would like more sessions.
I offer appointments between 09:00 and 17:00 on a Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.
My standard fee is £50 a session; if that is not affordable then please talk to me. I also offer reduced rates to those training to be a psychotherapist or counsellor.
Thinking about therapy
People may spend a while thinking about therapy before starting; it is an important and sometimes difficult decision. You could be at an early stage; see the FAQ for information about psychotherapy / counselling. You might be uncertain if therapy can help; you could phone me to discuss that. Getting closer to deciding? - see Making a decision. Or you might be considering if I am the right therapist for you; My approach and myself gives an idea of what you can expect from me.
