About me

Thank you for visiting my profile. My name is Sue Tyrer, I am a qualified Registered Counsellor and I offer both short or long term counselling on a one to one basis.

Perhaps you feel you would like to talk about difficulties that are affecting you and your life at the moment. Perhaps you are struggling to make sense of these feelings and emotions and would like to talk to someone who can offer you a safe, confidential and non-judgmental space to listen to you and give you the opportunity to explore your feelings and find a way forward that suits you.

I have experience of working within the education system, working within the Redditch area in a High School as a School Counsellor supporting students aged 13 years to 18 years addressing many different issues to include self-esteem, body image, bereavement, self-harm, feelings around adoption, bullying and stress.

I am a CRUSH Facilitator working alongside West Mercia Women's Aid offering programmes of support to young people aged 12 years to 18 years whom have been either victims of domestic abuse or have witnessed domestic abuse within the home.

I have Private Practices in both Alcester and Redditch areas. Alcester premises has some road parking to the front however there is a free car park to the rear of the building and can be accessed through a short walk way alongside the premises. The building is quaint, the counselling room is accessed via two small flights of stairs which may be problematic for clients with excessive mobility problems, however this can be discussed if applicable. I look forward to meeting you.

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.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
