Susan Blundell, Psychotherapist, Counsellor, Supervisor and Trainer.
We seek therapy when we are in pain. You know something isn't working for you but you may not be able to pinpoint what. You may be facing acute known difficulties such as bereavement, the loss of a job or relationship problems. You may be experiencing familiar distressing situations and begin to wonder why you encounter the same problem over and over again. Or you may find yourself personally limited by anxiety or depression or the ways you find yourself reacting and relating. Life transitions can also be confusing times, as you ask yourself big questions such as: Who am I? What do I want?
Susan Blundell is a psychoanalytic psychotherapist and an experienced and qualified counsellor, based in Tonbridge, Kent, near Tunbridge Wells and Sevenoaks.
I have over twelve years' qualified experience working with men and women of all ages, background, sexuality and many ethnicities. I have worked in the NHS, hospital and GP surgeries, charity setting and in private practice.
I offer space, time and relationship for you to talk about what concerns you; bringing insight; new perspectives and opportunities for change - with the aim of enabling you to live your life more freely and fully.
My therapeutic approaches are psychoanalytic, psychodynamic. relational and CBT.
