Sue McNally-Mills BACP registered BA Contemporary Art, DIPCOUNS BCPC
I am a fully qualified BACP registered and experienced counsellor ready to help you explore the you are facing in your life. I offer a supportive, safe and confidential setting in which I can help you to gain an understanding of yourself and your relationships and to develop skills which may support you in your daily life.
I follow an humanistic and creative integrative approach, which means that I draw from the psychodynamic and person-centered traditions within counselling. In practice this means that I believe in the importance of establishing a working relationship in which my clients feel safe and listened to, without judgement. Each individual is unique and my approach is very much led by you, and the issues you bring to me.
I work individually some of the issues I work with are;
- self esteem
- low mood
- anger management
- family relationships
- substance misuse
- managing stress
- attachment issues
- alcohol issues
When you first contact me (by phone or e-mail) we can arrange a day and time to meet. The first session will be an assessment for us to discuss what you would like to work on. If at the end of this session you feel comfortable for us to work together, we will meet at the same time each week and sessions are 50 minutes. I offer short and long term work and we can decide together what will suit your needs.
My career in counselling began with working within the charity sector with substance misuse and homelessness in which I gained substantial and valuable experience on these and related issues. I have also worked within the NHS mental Health services working with a wide range of issues.
