Susan Brill ~ Dip.Couns. RMBACP
41 North Street
I offer a professional, confidential counselling service at exceptionally low rates to make private therapy affordable to everyone (£15 week-days, £20 after 3pm & Saturdays), for a 60 minute session. I am a Registered Member of The British Association of Counsellors & Psychotherapists, and hold full Indemnity Insurance. I work from a private room in Wake House, Bourne, Lincs, offering a safe, comfortable and quiet space for you to talk through your concerns.
The primary goal of any form of counselling therapy is to release the client from any emotional distress, mental confusion and/or limiting beliefs. Person-centred counselling arms the client with the opportunity to become more self-aware, and more in control of creating the sort of positive changes they want to see in their life.
Fees: £15 (week-days), £20 (after 3pm and Saturdays)
Sessions: 60 minutes
Home visits may be possible should mobility be an issue. Travelling costs will be added to session fee - (advised and agreed prior to the first session).
~ Couple Counselling will be available in early 2017.
~ Online Counselling will be available in early 2017.
Wake House has its own free car park at the rear of the premises.
