Life brings all sorts of challenges and some can be much harder to overcome than others. Most adults can remember a time when they were dealing with a situation so tough that everyday living became more challenging than usual. For children and young people, who have not had time to develop their own coping strategies, such situations are even more difficult to cope with. Many children who are having a difficult time do not know what it is that they are feeling and cannot put it into words. Counselling for children and young people might be slightly different to the traditional idea of therapy you may have in mind.

Are you struggling at the moment, and it feels that you're the only one having a tough time? Or are you recognising that you want to do things differently, but don't know what that might be, or where to start? If you'd like to start working out how to start moving towards a different future, one where you can be in control of your choices, then talking therapy may be of benefit, by helping you to untangle your feelings, explore the past, talk through different options or simply to listen while you work out what's next.

I entered the world of psychotherapy so I could manage and eventually overcome the painful emotions and thoughts that I had experienced. If this is the case for you, then psychotherapy can help you explore uncomfortable feelings that have held you back from living life to the full. Life often throws the unexpected at us, be it through relationships, either personal or professional, we sometimes find it difficult to cope alone and need the support to help us through this difficult time.

Hi and welcome to my profile! I am a fully accredited Cognitive Behavioural Therapist (CBT) with the BABCP. We can all experience difficult times in our lives that we may require help and support with.  When we experience distress we can often have negative feelings and thoughts which can influence how we might behave or deal with a certain situation. We can often find ourselves in a vicious cycle of negative thoughts and behaviours that can be hard to break.  CBT works on a 'here and now' basis, exploring your current difficulties and give you effective coping strategies to be able to make changes in your life and move forwards.

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.

Sometimes we reach a point in our life where feelings of anxiety or depression take over. Together we can explore what brought you to this point in a caring, non-judgmental and welcoming environment. We will look for any patterns or early decisions made in childhood and work towards making new ones that work better for you. I have found that the journey of psychotherapy is a challenging but very rewarding journey of self-exploration, self-awareness and self-acceptance.

I'm passionate about helping people to resolve their problems and achieve their goals. This is therapy not simply to understand yourself, manage your emotions or control your behaviour but, rather, to resolve therapeutic problems permanently by identifying the biographical origins and 'relearning' the experience. The main approach used, Relearning Experience Process, is a brief, solution-focused therapy requiring only a few consultations to achieve complete resolution. I have 23 years' experience helping people overcome OCD, PTSD, childhood abuse, depression, social anxiety, lack of confidence or assertiveness and need for approval.

Sometimes, things happen that can be too hard to manage by yourself. Are you feeling stressed, anxious, scared or alone? Are your relationships going wrong? Has something bad happened to you? Do you need to make a decision but you're not sure where to turn? Has someone you know died and it's affecting you more than you think it should? Would it help to talk to someone who's outside of the situation?

Struggles in life are inevitable. Yet feeling overwhelmed by them and not coping isn’t. Sometimes we need extra support and guidance to be able to get past these hurdles. Feeling overwhelmed / worried / anxious? Like you can’t go on anymore? That you aren’t worth it? These are the type of issues that I work with to enable my clients to change this thinking pattern into a more healthier perspective and belief about themselves. To better understand yourself and work towards letting go of the baggage is being carried around on a daily basis. Together we can do this and so much more.

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 Rubery?
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 Rubery 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.
