Counselling and Psychotherapy in Kings Heath, Birmingham

My name is Marla Prudom and I qualified as a counsellor twenty five years ago since that time I have worked consistently in counselling and psychotherapy developing my skills and experience in a number of settings all of which have proved useful in my work with clients who come from all walks of life. I currently run a private practice in Kings Heath, Birmingham within easy reach of Moseley, Harborne, Solihull and Edgbaston.

I work with both Couples and Individuals on an open-ended basis or for an agreed time period, with the aim of enabling you to explore at your pace the issues and problems that are adversely affecting your life and those close to you. The purpose of engaging with counselling or psychotherapy is to help you find better ways of dealing with your problems and relationships.

I have solid experience in helping people who are having difficulties with :

  • Relationships
  • Affairs
  • Stress
  • Anxiety
  • Bereavement and grief
  • Redundancy
  • Depression
  • Sexual abuse and rape
  • Lack of confidence
  • Issues of loss such as separation, divorce, role and identity crisis; empty nest syndrome
  • Miscarriage
  • Infertility
  • Cross cultural issues
  • Fear of intimacy and rejection
  • Conflict
  • Change
  • Divided loyalties
  • Aging and loneliness
  • Sadness and unhappiness

    this is not a comprehensive list and is an indication of some of the problems for which people have sought my counselling help

    Counselling in Kings Heath

    My psychotherapy practice is in Kings Heath, Birmingham within easy reach of Harborne, Solihull, Moseley and Edgbaston. There is free street parking nearby, and I am on the No. 11 and 50 bus routes.

    I have a pleasant and private dedicated therapy room to see clients. However, there is no waiting room and to avoid any unnecessary delays it's best if people arrive on time.

    If you have any questions and seek clarification on any aspect of my work as a counsellor or in relationship psychotherapy please do not hesitate to contact me and I will answer your questions.

    It can be daunting to pick up the phone to call someone you don't know so feel free to email me with your queries. I will endevour to answer you as quickly as possible however, inevitably there will sometimes be a delay, so rest assured I will respond.

    It is also not uncommon for people to be in two minds about seeking counselling, I will be pleased to have a brief conversation with you about your doubts and uncertainities. Whilst I think psychotherapy can be useful for many people I am equally clear that it is not for everyone and it is not in my interest to put you under any obligation or pressure, the aim is always to ensure that as a counsellor/psychotherapist I act with integrity and with your best interests in mind.

    Following a consultation if a mutual decision is made to proceed with counselling I prefer to establish a regular time and day to meet. This helps with continuity and containment as clients incorporate these sessions into their lives. However, only for those who work shifts it may be possible to make alternative arrangements. Once a time and date has been agreed I put aside these times for you and you only.

    Counselling and psychotherapy requires courage, patience, time and financial investment. Whilst it is nobody's interest to unnecessarily prolong sessions I ask that people seeking my service commit themselves to at least six consecutive sessions. (There is some flexibility to take into account people's work schedule or prior commitments). This is because people's histories are complex and it can take time to develop a rapport of trust between clients and therapist where issues and problems can be talked about in confidence. Many of the problems and difficulties have arisen sometimes over a long period which is why it takes time to explore their origins and to work through the accompanying thoughts and feelings and to bring about an understanding and clarity regarding one's behaviours and motivations. For some people the initial six sessions may be sufficient however, for most people it serves as an introduction to laying the ground work for on going therapy.
    During therapy a space is created for any and all of human emotions to be expressed, experienced, thought about and processed in order to gain a more rewarding and different perspective that will allow you to make the changes you want in your life.

    If you would find it helpful please feel free to contact me by email, phone or text and I will happily respond to your questions and clarify any of the points raised on my website. There will be no obligation or expectation on my part as it's far more important that you have as much information as you require to make a reasonably informed decision that you're comfortable with.
    As a first point of contact some people have found it useful to have a brief telephone conversation with me and it allows us to get a sense of one another before committing yourself to a consultation.
