About me

Hello I am Suz welcome to my profile. I am an experienced counsellor and psychotherapist working from Harborne and Bromsgrove. I offer individual face to face counselling on a long or short term basis. I work in a person centred way working along side my clients. I offer a warm , safe , non judgmental therapeutic relationship and environment.

Counselling offers a space to reflect on you and make some sense of your emotions. It will help you to discover your own resources and become more self aware. I work at my clients pace and offer support throughout the counselling process. I am able to work creatively as sometimes finding the words may be hard. A more creative approach may help you feel more relaxed.

I am an experienced LGBT affirmative therapist. I have experience working within the community through working at Healthy Gay Life in Birmingham. I understand the difficulties such as coming out, gender and sexual orientation, cross cultural relationships, religious impact on sexuality, transitioning as well as other issues. I am passionate about working with and exploring identity issues this includes sexuality, gender and social class.

I have also worked at Solihull Bereavement Counselling Service. Everyone grieves differently and this can be an extremely hard time. Shock, Denial, Depression are just some things you may be experiencing. I work with people who are affected by pet Bereavement too. As a pet owner myself I know how devastating losing a pet can be.

Sports Counselling can help you if you are being held back maybe feeling anxious about joining a gym? Together we can explore the reasons that are stopping you from making that first step. Or maybe you are a passionate athlete and you have lost your passion sometimes our worries stop us enjoying what we are most passionate about. I have an interest in sport I am a keen athlete myself maybe I can help you.

Other issues that may bring you to counselling are Depression, stress, relationship issues, family issues, anxiety as well as generalised anxiety disorder, affairs, panic disorder , problems at work and many more.

If you feel I may be the right counsellor for you, please ring me for a chat If you leave a voice mail I will return your call as soon as possible. Alternatively send me an email.
