About me

Are you suffering with anxiety or feeling lonely? Are you feeling lost, uncertain or directionless in life? Have you experienced changes that are hard to manage, struggling to feel happiness or find purpose in life? As an integrative Psychotherapeutic Counsellor,  Sue works with clients to explore mind, body, emotion and soul, believing that if any of these parts of self are out of balance, our whole being can be affected. Sue works alongside clients to identify how connected or disconnected these parts of self care, which can aid in the unravelling of the root cause of the problem. Issues may present through anxiety, depression, mental health, stress, and lack of fulfilment. Sue integrates, Psychotherapy,  Person Centred, CBT, Gestalt and Transpersonal Techniques to help clients access their deep inner world where the client can recognise and resolve their problems. Sue is a registered member of the BACP (MBACP) the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists.

Member organisations


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.
