Sue Christy - Individuals & Couples - Effective & Psychobabble Free!
Sue Christy Counselling
Lower Ground Floor
36 Brunswick Road
Sue Christy’s approach is simple. She has a passion for her work and it shows. Sue’s aim is to help you find a positive outcome no matter what the problem is. No matter how deep you feel you have sunk, there is always a way back up.
An Accredited member of the BACP and a regular guest on BBC Radio Gloucestershire, Sue brings her unique warmth, personality and humour to the counselling process.
Asking for help is hard. You want someone to listen to you but find the vast listings of counsellors/psychotherapists can make your head spin. Sue uses common sense in her approach and trusts that it is the counselling relationship, not ‘psychobabble’ that will prove fundamental to the counselling process. Sue will work with you at your pace, and won’t push you - unless that is what you want.
For many people, between one and six meetings with a counsellor are sufficient to make a real difference to what was troubling them. Sue also offers longer term counselling where appropriate.
Sue works with individuals, couples and families.
"I wish I could bottle and sell what it is that we did during our time together Sue. My life looks and feels very different for me now."
Sue is a deeply caring and empathetic counsellor, and will treat whatever you bring to the counselling sessions with confidence and respect.
If you are a counselling student/trainee Sue would also love to hear from you - She is passionate about supporting those in training and offer reduced fees to all counselling students who are seeking a person-centered counsellor for support throughout the training process and beyond. She is also a qualified supervisor having trained with the British Psychological Society and offers a structured, creative and engaging developmental supervision to support you in your training and beyond.
