Sue Fox, Reg. MBACP
I see life as a journey with all its stumbles and frailties and its enormous potential for human growth. “There is nothing stronger than the human spirit.” However, there are times during life’s journey when confusion and bewilderment, turmoil and upheaval, uncertainty and perplexity can take hold. These are times when counselling can be beneficial and lend a helping hand in order to sort through challenging times. My aim is to provide clients with a safe place in order to explore the depths of their difficulties.
As a Counsellor, I am keen to facilitate people, helping them to gain insight into their problems, the patterns that complicate their lives and to provide them with an emotional language in order to handle and enhance their personal growth.
I also have and interest into the many perspectives of Religion, Spirituality and Faith. As a counsellor I am very open to all faiths. I welcome the opportunity to discuss with and seek what these facets mean to my clients, to search for a wider meaning to life and that of living and experiencing our human existence.
I initially trained in Psychodynamic Counselling in the early 1990’s and worked in both a voluntary and a paid capacity, contracted to Social Services. My life’s journey has also taken me into the field of teaching and training where I have taught counselling skills for a number of years for a local college. Beyond this, I have worked closely with unemployed people and also training staff within the Health and Social Care sector.
I work within the BACP Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy and I am subject to its Professional Conduct Procedure and have regular clinical supervision.

My fees are £40 per session. I understand that we all have different needs and I discuss the fee and the timing of the sessions when we initially meet, as I feel it is important that to benefit from the therapeutic relationship, we are both able to commit to this process.
What is Psychodynamic Counselling?
Psychodynamic counselling initially evolved from Sigmund Freud’s theories on the unconscious and uses the therapeutic relationship to gain insight into unconscious relationship patterns that have evolved since childhood. Memories and other evidence of early relationships are used to make sense of current situations and concerns.
