Creative Therapy & Counselling. At The AOC we really want to support you whether you are a family needing emotional help, a couple trying to save their relationship or an individual looking for professional counselling or therapy in order to work through and heal psychological or social difficulties or cannot travel to us so we can support you via telephone or video/Skype conferencing. We are based right on the border of Sandwell and Dudley where we have our own lovely therapeutic rooms and training spaces and provide a fantastic team of registered and qualified associate therapists and trainers.
We have a dedicated team of professionally trained counsellors and therapists with a range of different modalities including dramatherapy, integrative counselling, play therapy, psychotherapy, CBT, dance movement therapy, mindfulness practitioners and much more.
We really understand most issues and are totally non judgemental and will support you all the way. We appreciate for some of our clients that reaching out for professional help can be embarrassing, seen as sign of failure or scary. We aim to help you overcome those fears and encourage you to take that step towards healing and acceptance.
