Providing a confidential, therapeutic space you need to explore the thoughts, feelings, and challenges in your life.

Welcome to Solihull Counselling and Psychotherapy

Life brings many challenges and understandably at times we might look for support in facing them. However, having the courage to even contemplate talking through our issues and challenges can be incredibly difficult.

Often, we can suppress our feelings of unhappiness, but deep down, we can feel the pain from our past or the anguish from our current problems. Even if we do have someone to talk to, we can feel unable to share the truth for the fear of hurting others or being judged by them if they were to know how we really feel.

I provide a confidential, therapeutic space to help you understand whatever difficulties or problems you might be experiencing in life. As someone independent and outside of your day-to-day life, I work with you to explore your issues and help you find new ways of looking at your situation. This allows you to gain a deeper understanding of yourself, helping to make new, meaningful choices or find new ways of coping and responding to your current difficulties.

When we understand a little about how our mind works and we have some guide posts on how to manage our emotions healthily, we not only build resilience, but we can thrive and, over time, find a sense of peace and growth.

Finding yourself reading this suggests you have taken the first step along the path to a better tomorrow, so please get in touch to arrange an initial discussion.

Get in touch

It is often helpful to start with an informal, no-obligation telephone call to discuss the reasons you are thinking of coming to counselling and whether it could be helpful for you. It is also an opportunity for you to gain a sense of whether I am the right counsellor for you and if I think I can help with the issues you bring. Alternatively, please fill out the booking form to arrange a call back at a time that suits you.

All enquiries are usually answered within 24 hours and all contact is strictly confidential, using secure telephone and email services. If it is not appropriate for any reason, for me to leave a message, please advise of this and provide specific times when it is suitable to contact you.


Counselling sessions for individuals last up to 50 minutes and cost £65 per session.

A secure link will be provided by email or text, ahead of each session, for you to make payment. I use a provider called SumUp and you can read more about them here.

Please kindly note that if you wish to postpone or cancel an appointment, a minimum of 24 hours' notice is required. In the absence of this, full payment for the session will be due.


I offer confidential face-to-face sessions at my private practice in central Solihull – located in a quiet, peaceful location, with plenty of parking available and easy access to public transport.

In addition to providing face-to-face therapy, I also offer telephone and on-line sessions for clients in Solihull and beyond via Zoom. Contact me to find out more about how on-line therapy works.
