Sue Harman BA, MBACP
You may be feeling confused, angry, anxious or depressed, or feel the need to change direction in your life, become more positive. Relationships can be at snapping point and we can start to feel trapped and unhappy, sometimes without even knowing the full cause of our roller coaster emotions. But anxiety can build, we are not at ease and we fear being overwhelmed by it all.
Being a fully qualified professional counsellor, I offer one to one counselling where our meeting would be warm, friendly, confidential and private, giving you time to feel listened to without being judged. We all need help at some point in our lives and, if it was a physical symptom that we had, then we would go to the doctor. Sometimes we do have physical symptoms that persist, a nagging call from our body that all is not well, a warning. I also offer telephone or on-line counselling when face to face is not an option, perhaps due to the Coronavirus.
It can be hard to make that first phone call but we could have a talk so that you can see how it works without obligation. I can be available most days and evenings. If you would like to talk with me about counselling, and any issues you have, then please call me on 07963 093250 to have a confidential chat or do feel free to email me if you prefer. If I do not answer straight away then please leave a message so that I can get back to you as soon as I can.

I was a Counsellor at a doctors surgery for many years with many types of issues being brought. I offer short and long term therapy, it truly does depend on what you bring and how deep it is. That is for us to gently talk about and agree upon when we meet.
I also have many years experience of working in the private sector and have recently completed on-going professional development in many different areas, including Mindfulness which is very effective for all types of anxiety and stress, enabling us to deal with those thought loops that go round and round without end. I am also interested in how our bodies are sometimes telling us what is wrong yet we ignore it.
I am part of a professional body called the British Association For Counselling & Psychotherapy and abide by their codes of practise which means that my work is supervised by a suitably qualified person. It also means that I agree to continue learning in the counselling field so that I am always bringing the best to my client.
I have the relevant insurance in place and am covered to work with children.
