Sue Howlett, BPC Registered, PD Psych
I am an experienced qualified counsellor and psychotherapist based in private practice in the tranquil setting of the House at Snow Hill in Farringdon and also at the Wellbeing Space in Farnham Surrey. I offer open ended long term psychotherapy as well as short-term counselling. My first career was in the financial services sector in the City and I am familiar with the stresses, anxieties and frustrations that working life brings. Psychoanalytic and psychodynamic therapies aim not only for the relief of symptoms but for deep-seated and lasting change. Psychotherapy may be able to help you if you are:
- Feeling depressed, stressed or anxious
- Feeling constantly irritable or angry
- Finding it difficult to feel or understand your feelings
- Finding home or work overwhelming
- Lacking a sense of purpose or meaning in your life
- Coming to terms with loss
- Feeling blocked in your career or education
- Having relationship difficulties
- Having difficulties with your sexuality
- Struggling with family conflicts including parenting
- Suffering from repeating patterns of behaviour
- Wishing to understand yourself better
- Wanting a more fulfilling life
- Looking for a more contented, balanced life
If you wish to consider open-ended therapy or shorter term work do contact me by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or on 07787 686313. We can have an initial discussion over the phone. There will be no charge for this initial discussion and you can then decide whether you want to come and have a further consultation which will give us a chance to meet in person and discuss your needs.
