Su Collins MBACP
My aim is to create a non-judgmental and confidential environment where you are enabled to gain an improved understanding of yourself towards positive and informed choices. Ultimately, through the counselling process and working relationship, you the client, becomes able to discover or strengthen your resources for change and hoped for outcomes. As counsellor, I offer to look with you at the future, from the present time, in respect of the past. Counselling is based on listening, providing time for you to concentrate at the work at your pace.
As a qualified and experienced counsellor who works from an integrative approach using different therapies and skills such as; Person Centred Counselling, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Transactional Analysis (TA), Psychodynamic Counselling and Mindfulness. Person centred counselling continues to be at the core of how I work integratively. Ultimately, my work is to listen unconditionally, and with empathy to the issues which bring you to counselling at this time in your life.
Some areas of experience are;
anxiety, addictions, bullying, changes in life through loss including bereavement, coercive relationships, confidence/self esteem issues, depression, family issues, identity, relationship issues, self-harm, stress, childhood issues and work related problems.
The counselling space provided is a warm, comfortable and spacious room in which you are able to explore your feelings, behaviours and thoughts towards positive change. Each session and the work which takes place is in respect of your own, unique story and issues you bring.
