Sue Lovat B.A (Hons); MBACP - Integrative Counsellor: I am an experienced, qualified Counsellor providing professional, confidential services promoting personal development and growth
I have a private counselling practice in Bolton, at a friendly local therapy centre.
I am a BACP Registered integrative counselling practitioner, with experience of working with a wide range of client issues, including:
Anxiety and Depression, Abuse (Emotional, Mental, Physical, Financial), Anger, Bereavement, Childhood issues, Crisis management, Divorce, Domestic Violence, Family concerns, OCD, Relationships, Self-Esteem, Sexuality, Terminal illness; and many more.
I work voluntarily at a local women’s refuge, counselling survivors of domestic abuse and women in crisis.
As an integrative practitioner I underpin my work with a person centred approach, working at the client’s pace, before integrating the appropriate therapeutic intervention to address client issues. I am therefore practiced in utilising therapies that include CBT, Gestalt and Transactional Analysis.
I am an affiliate counsellor for a reputable Employee Assistance Programme provider, successfully offering short term solution focussed therapy under the umbrella of staff welfare.
I am a qualified Counselling Supervisor, and I also have many years’ experience providing staff supervision.
As an Integrative Counsellor, I use different therapeutic interventions to support individual clients. Whatever your needs, I can provide a safe and non-judgemental environment where you can talk through your concerns and find ways to help you cope more successfully.

‘Don’t let anyone rob you of your imagination, your creativity, or your curiosity. It’s your place in the world, it’s your life. Go on and do all you can with it, and make it the life you want it to be.’
Mae C. Jemison, first African-American woman astronaut.
My experience has led me to believe in the potential of us all to learn and grow, and this is at the heart of all my counselling practice. Having this approach, I feel that personal and professional improvement is important if we are to feel fulfilled as human beings.
This experience has shown me that we are all able to build positive attitudes that help us to change and deal with our difficulties. For me it is important to rise to life's challenges and view them as opportunities to learn and develop.
