Sue Barrett MBACP (Accred), Member of The Guild of Psychotherapists
Life can overwhelm us all at times and there are some things that we need help and support with. As an experienced counsellor and psychotherapist, I can offer you the assistance you may need through these times, and together we can explore the issues which are concerning you. I provide a confidential and safe environment in which to speak freely and openly about your life experiences and feelings, secure in the knowledge that together we will endeavour to work towards developing a greater understanding of yourself and the difficulties that you are now encountering.
I am aware of how difficult it may feel to approach a counsellor and of the anxiety that it can evoke within you, and so please be assured that I have an understanding of this when you make your initial contact with me.
I am a qualified BACP accredited Psychodynamic Counsellor and Psychotherapist and I have worked for several years at Redhill Counselling Centre, seeing clients with a wide range of problems, which include depression, anxiety, relationship problems, bereavement, sexual abuse, etc. I have previously worked at an Independent Mental Health hospital for a number of years, doing both individual and group work.
Early morning from (7 am), evening and weekend appointments are available.
I am happy to offer both short term or long term counselling depending upon the individual needs of the client.
Low Fee Space
As of November 2019, I will have a low fee space available through the C.G.Jung Clinic for someone wishing to attend a four times weekly analysis. Please do contact me for further details, I am happy to arrange a free initial consultation to discuss this opportunity in more depth with you.
