The relationships and experiences that we have, shape the way that we understand the world around. These can make us feel uneasy, and we need to think out aloud. Having an objective ear can help to better understand ourselves. This can be related to personal relationships, our working life, family challenges, life events and many aspects of the world around us. I offer a space that works ethically, and within the boundaries of confidentiality and safeguarding. I aim to support exploration of how challenges and concerns can be overcome in a collaborative way and at your pace. I offer individual counselling.

I believe every person is the expert in their own life. Together we can explore the circumstances that are feeling difficult for you, with space to reflect, hear yourself think and take a deeper look at what might be behind what's happening for you. Whether you're feeling stuck, struggling to overcome painful experiences, or feeling trapped in patterns you can't seem to change. I won't tell you what to do, but I will help you to find your own insights and clarity to process your feelings and move forward in ways that work for you.

I am an accredited member of BACP and UKCP with experience in the NHS, university, and voluntary sectors, and in private practice since 2002. Sharing what troubles you, in a professional setting, is a positive step towards creating a better life for your self. Perhaps you have become frustrated with bringing about change in your life or maybe life events are beginning/continuing to cause you difficulties. You may be aware of thoughts or feelings about these - or experience them physically in your body. You may also feel stuck in trying to bring about change on your own, or to be different from how you experience yourself right now.

When emotional problems arise it can be difficult to know where to turn and pressures to cope can leave us isolated and desperate. There may be people around who offer their time but feelings of shame and fears can make it difficult to make use of them. It might be that there is no-one to speak to and problems originating in the past are getting in the way of you finding satisfaction in life. Traumas can remain unprocessed and present themselves in everyday life. Psychotherapy is a way of exploring oneself and relationships to try to make sense of the patterns and issues that are blocking you.

My name is Julie and I love living in the city, the hustle and bustle of life and human connection. I worked in hospitality management for 25 years and understand the pressures of working full time while running a business and a home. I believe that therapy should be an open space for us to come together and work out what is going on and how you can make some changes to make life better.

You feel like you can’t cope, you’re fed up, you’ve had enough. Your life isn’t what you want it to be. Living has become hard and there’s no joy in your world. It’s like everyone else except you is happy. You’re haunted by your past. You think you’ll never be happy again. You feel alone like no one else understands how hard your life is at the moment. On the outside you look fine but inside you feel like you’re dying. Everything you do feels like an act to look like you’re okay. You don’t know how to change things or what to do about it anymore.

I work with clients with a wide range of issues. Most commonly they feel low, anxious, stuck, blocked or lost. They are often seeking quite broad or deep change within themselves. Sometimes they don’t really know what they are seeking but know that something is not right and that they are out of touch with their inner Self. But what they have most in common is that they are seeking a space where they can seek to explore how they feel, to understand themselves and what is happening in their lives and relationships, what has happened in the past, and how it may be impacting their present and their imagined future.

Do you sometimes feel different? Or that what you go through is unique only to you? perhaps you believe things that happen to you are all your fault? Or you struggle in relationships? I understand the need to feel part of the world, not 'messed up' - we are social creatures who often care what people think. And we have a natural desire to be the best person we can be - something to be cultivated. The conflict to fit in, whilst being true to yourself - creates tension, anxiety, depression, poor coping strategies. Plus the modern pressures of life rarely let us 'just be'. The process of therapy can resolve these deep conflicts.

Hi I'm Sarah and I specialise in working anxiety, depression and trauma. Maybe you are feeling anxious, overwhelmed or exhausted. Maybe you are struggling to cope with a traumatic life event. Or maybe you are generally finding life unmanageable at the moment. At times we can lose our way unintentionally and then find it difficult to get back onto the right path. If this sounds familiar, my therapy approach can help you regain some strength, clarity and balance so that you can feel more calm and back in control of your life.

My way of working is somewhat dependent on you and your wants from a therapy space. I am trained to work with CBT, person-centred and attachment based therapy. I have done additional training in: Somatic Abolitionism, Emotional Regulation Skills and CBT adapted to work with those that self-define as autistic. I have worked with many clients and believe therapy works best by meeting the client where they are and towards what they identify they need. I work openly with race and other forms of systemic oppression in therapy and support clients from minoritised identities to explore this in therapy.

People seek counselling and psychotherapy for various reasons. Not everyone knows what is bothering them. Often it is the difficulties and challenges of daily life that become overwhelming and unmanageable, impacting relationships, work and decision making. It is sometimes beyond the control of the individual to address those issues without professional help.

Do you feel stuck, lost and alone in life? Do you feel overwhelmed by your problems and struggle to understand why you feel so unhappy and unfulfilled? Do you worry about letting people get emotionally close to you and so tend to distance yourself from others? Yet then feel isolated and deeply unhappy? Have you always felt different or as though there was something wrong with you? Do you have a longing to understand yourself and feel an emotional connection with people in your life? I have worked with many people with these kinds of problems. It is likely that you experienced emotional neglect or trauma as a child.

I am Sade and I aim to support you with varying emotional, psychological and general difficulties. I also realize that not everyone has a main 'problem' as such. We sometimes simply want to understand ourselves better, explore our feelings discreetly and without judgement, develop healthier relationships and have better life experiences. Whatever your reason for seeking therapy at this time, you are welcome to my practice, Simi Sara. I hope we can develop a relationship that supports you in reaching your goals, dealing with hard issues and being heard. Sessions with me are usually weekly, at a time convenient for us.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, psychologist, or counsellor, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counsellor in King's Heath, Birmingham?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Psychologists in King's Heath, Birmingham specialise in therapeutic approaches such as CBT, EMDR, and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), among others. Finding a psychologist or counsellor who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

Can I afford counselling?
Yes. Most counsellors offer reasonable rates or will work on a sliding scale basis. Many accept health insurance. Feel free to discuss this when you contact the counsellor.
