Sue Christy - Individuals & Couples (Saturdays & Evenings)
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.
For couples, Sue's highly popular after Intensive Couples Sessions (2-3 hour sessions) are a great way to get things started.
Longer, intensive counselling sessions enable us to get to the heart of important issues quickly, and deal with them thoroughly so you don’t have to talk over the same issues time and time again.
ICC is particularly helpful for couples dealing with the aftermath of an affair or major life event, as it helps to stabilise difficult situations and enables you to develop a plan for moving forward. It’s also popular with couples who can’t commit to weekly therapy sessions due to work or childcare commitments or other issues.
Saturday and evening sessions available.
"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.
As a professional member of the BACP (British Association for Counsellors and Psychotherapists), Sue is bound by their code of ethics and committed to her continuous professional development.
