About me

"I can't thank you enough for how much you have helped me. You were there when I needed help and you guided me to such an amazing place. When I came to you I wanted help with a particular issue but I feel as though my recovery has gone so much further than this"

I am a person-centred counsellor experienced in working with both adults and young people from 11 years old. I am passionate about people and about counselling; I value each person as an individual  and I am committed to helping them to become the best they can be.  I offer a safe confidential space for you to talk, during those times when life has become difficult and when it's hard to know where to go next. Finding someone to talk to who listens and understands how you feel is the first step of the journey towards positive change. Together we can work on untangling your thoughts and emotions for you to reach acceptance and move forwards in your life .

My experience is in schools, charities and private practice and I have helped clients with many problems, including anxiety, depression, relationship difficulties, bereavement and loss, family, identity, panic disorders, personality disorders, childhood trauma and abuse, low self-esteem, self-harm, substance misuse, emotional and physical abuse, anger management, work place difficulties and I have worked with ex-armed forces personnel coming to terms with trauma memories and finding ways to move forward in civilian life:

"I was made to feel at ease in comfortable surroundings and at no point did I feel judged which I was nervous about. I would highly recommend Susan Powell. She was very friendly and knowledgeable, and overall I found it a very helpful experience"

I am home-based and offer appointments on a variety of days and times, depending on your availability. I am located in a quiet area with free parking and I work from a private counselling room separate from the main building. Every client is different, with different needs, and each person moves forward at their own pace so it is important that your needs are met and you decide how many sessions you need. I therefore provide an open-ended service to match your requirements.

"I was going through some big changes in my life, like graduating university, moving away from my family and starting my first full time job in teaching, so my anxiety was rearing its head. I found that you were able to help me to understand these feelings much better and deal with them like I wasn't able to before. I cannot thank you enough for making me feel so much happier!"
