Suzanne D'offay De Rieux MBACP Psychotherapeutic Counsellor & Supervisor
Peterborough City Centre
~ Empowering you to empower yourself! ~
'Counselling is not the counsellor being the expert, or the counsellor advising you on what to do! There is always a resolution to your current situation even when you cannot see it immediately...and so counselling exists to help you access this resolution in your own way and in your own time!'
Every Individual has the right to express themselves and what they truly feel. The self that is not hidden under the conditions and pressures of life, and influences of others. Sometimes to be heard and understood is not always possible when talking to family, friends, and colleagues despite their efforts. An impartial ear can be of better service.
I offer a safe and confidential space without judgement, you can use to comfortably, safely and openly explore your concerns, and work towards a resolve at your own pace.
Counselling is a joint venture between client and therapist. The relationship is most effective when both parties are in tune with one another as equals with openness, honesty and trust. You are the expert of your life and support is here to help you make sense of it, and use the counselling relationship to work through the difficulties you are facing, with understanding to revolutionary outcomes.
- Counselling gives you the space and confidentiality to speak openly about your life and concerns without judgement and fear of rejection.
- The relationship offers validation and opportunity for growth leading to greater insights into your self, others and your situation.
- Help you identify the root cause of your problem to deeply held painful emotions.
- Help you release pent up emotions and toxic energy that you've been carrying and empowers you to re-focus on a path that feels right for you.
I work with Individuals and Couples to suit; in the aim of supporting and guiding leading to greater self understanding in relationships overcoming the difficulties faced in the here and now - moving to resolution and happy outcomes.
What I offer
I am a passionate and compassionate professional counsellor/psychotherapist and supervisor in private practices - I believe people are whole and perfect in their own imperfections. Neuroscience research and experiments tells us that many of the distresses in life are down to the limiting perceptions and beliefs people hold about themselves, others and the world in relation to past experiences. Counselling helps you to shift perspectives so to expand your vision, enhance your wellbeing and broaden your confidence so you may make well informed decisions about what feels right for you.
I work with a diverse range of mental, emotional, behavioural and physical conditions. I offer one to one In person sessions in Peterborough and Geneva as well as Skype and telephone sessions as I believe everyone should have access to counselling support regardless of mobility restrictions or geographical distances. I am available for Short-term solution focused therapy and longer-term psychotherapeutic counselling and psychotherapy.
My counselling approach is Integrative, predominantly Humanistic (person centred) focusing on your unique individual needs working at your pace. At times when necessary incorporating Psychodynamics which focuses on the impact early relationships have in forming the personality and attachment patterns and how these patterns can be running your life today. CBT focuses on how early relational attachment and patterns informs your beliefs, and perception about your life now, how you feel, behave and act and how you can effectively change behaviours that are no longer serving you - through examining your belief system will empower you to choose differently. In addition i utilise various evidence based tools and processes from other counselling and alternative approaches including Creative Work - (Drama Triangles) Gestalt - (Constructive cycles & Destructive cycles of change) , PSYCH-K (Modification of subconscious belief patterns that activate a 'whole brain so you can see your situation from a 'Here and Now perceptive' rather than comparing with events of the past) and Transpersonal - (Expanded awareness beyond personal), where beneficial to give you the best counselling experience possible.
Experiences Private, Public, charity, EAP organisation and Prison sector.
