I offer tailored private individual attention and support with therapy approaches suiting varied issues concerning Adults, Young People and Children. If I consider you may be suited to another professional therapist, we can discuss finding you the right help.
As well as private practice my work experience includes GP referred Primary Health Care counselling, Online counselling, and school based counselling. An example of the issues I commonly work with include anxiety, depression, confidence and self-esteem, phobias, panic, addiction, styles of relating/relationships, family issues, abuse, trauma, plus my special interest in bereavement work, (please see the list of other issues I work with below).
I offer you counselling therapy and guidance so you may share your worries and find a way forward in your life and help you thrive. You are not alone with your problems - many people are experiencing similar situations, thoughts and feelings, but you are unique and experience your world in a unique way.
Personal Development Counselling is also a benefit you may like to receive through my tailored service.
I UNDERSTAND YOU MAY BE FEELING APPREHENSIVE? - this can be natural. I offer a confidential service in a private and comfortable environment where you can feel safe to be yourself and explore your worries, whatever they may be. Short or long term therapy can be an empowering and often surprising life-enriching journey which can serve you well in the future and bring about many life changing benefits.
CLIENTS OFTEN REPORT THAT COUNSELLING HAS CHANGED THEIR LIFE.. and that our sessions have brought them useful insight surrounding troublesome thoughts, emotions and behaviour, or new clarity, perspectives and options. This development ultimately brings about the benefit of increased confidence and autonomy in life. It's never too late to get help and enjoy the benefits of an tailor made counselling experience.
YOUR THOUGHTS? HOW IMPORTANT ARE YOU.. to yourself, and others? I understand that at a difficult time, feelings of low confidence can make asking for help difficult or think that ‘you should just get on with it’ or that working with a counsellor is self-indulgent, a weakness or an unwarranted expense? Perhaps consider the implications to your health and life situation and how counselling can positively help re-focus and enhance your life very quickly.
I hope I have the privilege of working with you... Susi
