About me

Hi I'm Susan and I am a person-centred counsellor experienced in working with adults and young people, from 11 years old. The person-centred approach is a type of talking therapy that is centred around you. What I won't do is give you advice or tell you how to live; what I will do is actively listen to you, accept you without judgement and try to understand what it's like to be you living your life. You are the only expert in your world of thoughts, feelings and experiences so I am guided by you and will work with you to achieve your goals. I provide you with a confidential and secure space for us to work together on whatever is troubling you, so that you can make positive changes towards leading a more fulfilled life. I am committed to providing professional, ethical and safe counselling for you to work through your problems in a trusting and reliable environment.

I am experienced in working in a variety of settings including voluntary work, schools and private practice and have helped with various client issues such as; 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.

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 suit your requirements and I am available on a variety of days and times. I am located in a quiet area with free parking and I work from a private counselling room separate from the main building.

Client testimonials:

"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 was going through some big changes in my life, 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!"

"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"

Testimonials from under 18's:

"These sessions have helped me understand how I actually feel, rather than only using 'happy' and 'sad' to describe my feelings"

"I've felt more positive in class and not so negative towards school"

"I felt like a weight has been lifted".
