Sue Deakin (MNSC) Individual and Couples Counsellor.
Something NEW that might be of great value to both new and existing clients, considering present national issues. With increasing social distancing and isolation and the practical and psychological issues associated, I am now offering 30 minute sessions for £20, hopefully some of the people who may find this helpful..
- People who no longer have a full hour available for a session due to school closures and/or other family members working from home.
- People currently self isolating (for what could be as long as 12 weeks for some of us) and possibly suffering with loneliness - split your regular sessions in to halves and have the opportunity to touch base with me twice in one week. Helping to prevent loneliness and also talk through any other anxieties surrounding isolation.
- People who previously had doubts about talking therapies being “for them”. Make the most of this extra time we are all being gifted and use a 30 minute session as your starting point.
- People who have never considered talking therapies, but feeling overwhelmed or anxious about the current situation and all sorts of other life problems that continue regardless.
- People who usually manage their own thoughts and stresses by going to the gym, socializing, keeping busy and are no longer able to. Discover alternative stress busting exercises and relaxation methods.
- Those suffering enhanced pressure at this time such as: key workers, those with high risk relatives, people facing financial uncertainty and business owners balancing their team and their own self care.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
