Therapy & Counselling for all ages. The award-winning AoC which stands for The Arts of Change is a counselling and therapy based in the West Midlands, and we can either support you face-to-face at our beautiful healing studios in the heart of Dudley, or offer telephone or video counselling, so you can be anywhere in the UK or overseas.

At The AOC we really want to help you whether you are a family needing emotional support, a couple trying to save their relationship or trying to save money from using expensive family courts and solicitors, an individual looking for professional counselling or therapy in order to work through and heal psychological, behavioural or social difficulties.

Even if you are a community group or organisation or charity that needs experienced and high-quality trainers to deliver exciting, powerful, creative, arts-based, educational and self-developmental training programmes, workshops, short courses or one-to-one support for children, young people or adults in Dudley, Sandwell and across the West Midlands and the UK – we can help. We are based right on the border of Sandwell and Dudley where we have our own lovely therapeutic rooms and training spaces and provide a fantastic team of registered and qualified associate therapists and trainers.

We have a dedicated team of professionally trained male and female counsellors and therapists, with a wide range of different modalities including dramatherapy, integrative counselling, play therapy, psychotherapy, CBT, dance movement therapy, mindfulness practitioners and more.

We really understand many issues, are totally non-judgemental, warm and friendly and will support you all the way and even if we cannot help you directly - we will try our very best to find someone who can. We appreciate for some of our clients that reaching out for professional help can be embarrassing, a sign of failure or very scary. We aim to help you overcome those fears and encourage you to take that step towards healing and acceptance by reaching out for our committed support to help you help yourself.

What do you love most about your job?

I am a professional lead therapist with The AoC and have been a qualified therapist for over 22 years with a lot of experience but every day feels new and different, What I particularly love most about the job is the fact that although clients walk into our studios or receive telephone or video counselling and therapy support - with what may appear to be the same issue or difficulty, behind the similarities are unique individuals, and that is what I love most - working with the heart and soul of my being to help these truly amazing and diverse human beings recover or grow or transform into even better human beings.

What inspired you to start your own business?

We wanted to make a difference and found that there weren't many organisations offering what we do. We spent eighteen months before we even opened our doors to clients - just trying to work out what kind of service we would offer. It took a long time, but he haven't regretted one single day.

Why should our clients choose you?

We have been nominated twice now for Partner of The Year award and this year came in the top three out of ten possible organisations for our great service to others. We won our first award in 2016 for being innovative and creative. We think you should choose us because we don't have a long waiting list, so you can be assured that you or a loved one can receive counselling and therapy support quickly, and all our counsellors and therapists and qualified , registered and fully trained and best of all we go out of our way to make your visit or call meaningful and if you don't believe us - just go onto our website and read all our amazing testimonials and video reviews. on Twitter
