In addition, we can also offer the six free sessions to some residents of Sandwell, Bearwood, Oldbury and Rowley Regis. Please contact us to find out if your GP is registered and therefore we can offer you the free sessions.

At first I was a bit nervous, talking about feelings made me vulnerable. It wasn’t a new experience for me, but it felt different this time. It was really refreshing to talk to someone without feeling judged.
