Q1. What should I expect in the first session?
It is quite normal to feel nervous or anxious at the first session. I will introduce myself and ask you some questions in order to find out more information about your reason for coming for counselling and get an idea of what you want to achieve.
Q2. What will happen in other sessions?
I will encourage you to tell me about the difficulties you are experiencing and help you to work through your difficulties in order for you to find solutions or ways of accepting your situation.
Q3. How long will I need to come for counselling?
This depends on the nature of your difficulty. It also depends on your commitment to change. People change at different rates and there are no right or wrong time periods as some people adapt to change more quickly or slowly than others. Making changes in your life is not always easy and is the reason that you are experiencing difficulties.
Q4. Where do I work?
I am a counsellor in Kingswinford, Birmingham and Oldbury.
Q5. What is counselling?
Counselling is getting assistance from a professional such as myself, to explore personal, social or psychological difficulties in confidence.

Because of the coronavirus (Covid-19) outbreak, my face to face counselling services are closed until further notice.
However, I am able to offer counselling sessions via telephone or online video calling. There are many advantages to this, such as keeping yourself and others safe, but you may find it's more convenient to have your sessions from the comfort of your own home as well as saving time and money.
My services are no longer restricted to a location and you are welcome to contact me if you need support regardless of where you live. Call now on 07843 813 537 to book your first session or if you would just like a friendly chat about your issues and how I can help.
