Welcome to

Otus Counselling

Helping you through challenges and facilitating growth.

Counselling for individuals in a safe, comfortable environment

Welcome, and thank you for visiting Otus Counselling.

My name is Stephen Blake and I provide counselling for adults and young people (16+) in the Birmingham area.

In case you are wondering, the word 'Otus' means 'Keen of Hearing' (it also has to do with owls!).

Counselling isn't just about listening to what someone has to say (a good Counsellor does much more than that!) but, undoubtedly, excellent listening skills are required to be able to help someone through their personal difficulties. I strive to be 'keen of hearing' with every Client whom I have the privilege of counselling.

I specialise in helping people who are feeling anxious, stressed or depressed progress towards a calmer, happier state of well-being. 

I work from therapy rooms in King's Heath and King's Norton. If face-to-face counselling isn't appropriate for you, online counselling (Zoom) or telephone counselling is also available, depending on your preference.

Feel free to contact me if you have any questions about how counselling works or to arrange your first counselling appointment with me.

Contacting me via phone or e-mail enables us to discuss the reasons you are thinking of coming to counselling and will help you decide whether I am the right Counsellor for you. If I am not able to answer your call (I may be in a session at the time), please leave a message for me and I will call you back as soon as I can.
