About me

My name is Sue,  I am a fully qualified Brief Solution Focused Hypnotherapist, Integrative Adult Counsellor (MBACP) and (UKCP) Integrative Child psychotherapist and Certified Cyber Therapist.

I offer

  • Individual Counselling to Adults
  • Individual Counselling and Psychotherapy to children and adolescents
  • Online Counselling to Adults and Children & Young People
  • Parent-child intervention
  • Individual parent sessions.

My therapeutic approach is integrative which means I may draw on a number of theories and models to assist me in the understanding of your difficulties and will work with you to help you address and resolve your worries and concerns.

I work from a relational/humanistic perspective as I believe the relationship between the therapist and client is fundamental to the work and in the promotion of emotional growth, health and well being and change. I am able to offer traditional talking therapy, online (video, email, messaging, telephone) and also creative arts/play based psychotherapy.

I also specialise in working with children and adolescents who may suffer with anxiety, depression, exam stress, OCD, ADHD, neuro-developmental disorders, bed wetting, encopresis, separation anxiety, attachment difficulties and trauma.

I have experience of working with adults with mental health difficulties such as anxiety, depression, phobias, OCD, agoraphobia.  I am particularly interested in working with children & young people who suffer with anxiety and depression.

I have a private practice in Maldon and also Chelmsford. If you would like further information or wish to make an appointment I can be contacted on my mobile number or alternatively you can email me.

I offer appointments Monday - Friday (daytime and evenings) and also Saturday mornings 9.00am - 1.00pm.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

BACP

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.

UKCP

UK Council for Psychotherapy

The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) is a leading professional body for the education, training and regulation of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors. Its register is accredited by the government's Professional Standards Authority.

As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.

UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
