Susan Stinchcomb MBACP (Registered)
I am a professionally qualified Counsellor/Psychotherapist with extra training in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Suicide Intervention. I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and I integrate different counselling modalities to best suit your needs. I work across various sites on the Wirral and have experience in working with Young People and Adults.
I can offer face to face, telephone and electronic counselling.
I understand that taking the first step, when you feel that you may need some extra help, can be very frightening so to contact a counsellor shows great courage. I have experience with working with a wide range of people, men and women, young and older and have worked with Wirral MIND, Age UK, WIRED, Action for Children and Headway. Our first meeting will be an assessment of what is troubling you now and the issues you may like to work on. My therapy rooms are private, comfortable and non clinical, have designated parking and are accessible via public transport.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have over 20 years experience of supporting people through voluntary and paid roles in the community before training to become a Counsellor.
I have worked extensively with people and their families coming to terms with an Acquired Brain Injury such as Stroke, Brain Tumour, Assault and Epilepsy and have undertaken further training to enable me to work with in this area in a counselling capacity.
I have experience, through work with Action for Children, of working with Young People struggling with various issues from anxiety and depression to body image issues and behavioural problems. I have taken further training to understand the impact of Neurodevelopmental Conditions such as ADHD, Dyspraxia and Autistic Spectrum Disorders. I continue to work with Young People at my offices in Heswall and Birkenhead.
I am comfortable working and communicating with people from all backgrounds and have experience of working with people who have experienced trauma, abuse, addiction, depression, marital difficulties and child-parent conflicts, bereavement, domestic violence, long term health issues, caring responsibilities and suicide. Miscarriage, teenage angst, health anxiety, eating disorders, body image issues, ADHD and adverse childhood experiences.
