Susie (Susan) Layton MBACP
I offer a warm and calm approach, and work together with you, as you look at the issues that have brought you to counselling.
I am experienced in working with a broad range of issues including depression, anxiety, stress, low self-esteem, abuse, trauma, panic attacks, OCD, bereavement, loss and relationship issues.
I facilitate a safe space, giving you the opportunity to explore your thoughts and feelings in a non-judgemental, confidential and accepting way, building trust and understanding.
I believe counselling can enable a person to gain a greater understanding of themselves and to live with an increased sense of well-being, purpose and ability to develop healthier relationships.
My counselling room is in a private, peaceful setting (with off-street parking) in Watford, close to junction 19 of the M25.
I offer both short and long term counselling (depending on your needs) and we would decide together which is most suitable for you.
If you would like to enquire about counselling, please phone me on 07763 520350 to arrange an initial session.
