Emily Sugarman Registered MBACP (Accred)
4 Old Cross
You might be looking for help with relationship issues, anxiety, depression, or worried about things that you are facing in your life.
Asking someone else for help can be very difficult, and it may be hard to believe anything can improve.
If you would like a safe, confidential and non-judgemental space in which to explore your experiences and feelings, counselling and psychotherapy could help you.
I am an experienced counsellor and psychotherapist, and Accredited and Registered Member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy.
Counselling and psychotherapy can help with many life experiences including: addiction – anxiety – bereavement – child abuse – depression – difference – domestic violence – fertility issues – loss – mental illness – parenting – redundancy – relationship issues – sexual issues - stress.
Please do contact me if you have any questions you want to ask before deciding whether to make an appointment.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have an MA from the University of St.Andrews, Scotland, a Diploma and a Postgraduate Diploma in Contemporary Therapeutic Counselling from the University of Hertfordshire.
Before setting up my private practice, I worked as a counsellor for Her Majesty’s Prison Service, for Hertfordshire NHS Trust Psychological Therapy Services, and with people struggling with substance abuse. I work with individuals of any age from early twenties up, on a short or long-term basis.
As an Accredited and Registered Member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy, I abide by their Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy.
