About me

How can I help you?  Many people think Counselling is something we need when we experience problems like anxiety, depression or overwhelming feelings of sadness, that challenge our coping mechanisms. However, in my view, Counselling should be seen in the same way as going to the hairdresser to get your emotional well-being shipshape. It is almost like trimming the dry split ends, to help you get emotionally healthy and ready for real-life again. Trimming the anxiety to a manageable length. 

Just like some people need a short back and sides haircut others might need a new hair colour. Whatever your needs, you will be allowed to share your feelings in a safe space where there is no judgment. You work at your own pace and with your own challenges. It doesn’t matter what the challenge, the focus will be on supporting you when you need it most. 

My journey made me more compassionate and open to other people, and the big emotions we might face. Different times in our lives bring different challenges. When we start off in life, we might need help choosing a partner, later in life, we might need help with, our careers, fertility, children, ADHD, death, anxiety, depression and feeling overwhelmed with curveballs like COVID. It may be very difficult to come to terms with these challenges and it is completely normal to feel overwhelmed. We all deal with things in different ways and sometimes it helps to verbalise our thoughts in a safe space that frees our minds from overthinking. Counselling and online therapy can be a way of acknowledging different needs and getting the support that is right for you.

I am a qualified EMDR therapist and for you to experience the value of EMDR, you can engage in 2 sample sessions. 

I have been working as a Counsellor in private practice for more than 20 years. I have been part of an executive team in a Private Medical Practice since 2017 where I have been working with a General Practitioner and Psychiatrist. I am an Accredited Member of the NCS, ACC, and PTUK.

So why not give yourself an emotional "makeover" with colourful talking, a tint of exploring, and a few highlights of understanding. 

Discovery session (first session) at no cost.  

Who can benefit and how?  

*  EMDR is the first line of intervention for PTSD.   
*  We attend the gym, meditation, yoga, drama and piano - why not a session with an emotional support purpose!
*  We all need time to work through all those BIG emotions. 
*  Partners, individuals or parents we could all do with a helping hand. 

*  We all need time to make sense of our emotions. 

Discovery session

Initially, we will have an online discovery session, and it will take about 20 minutes. It will be a session to introduce and share the things we are going to explore!

How does it work?

*  Safe space
*  One-to-one online sessions every week. 
*  Each session lasts 45 minutes. 
*  In the comfort of your own home.

The next step:

The discovery session will help you to get to know me and also to see how the sessions will be conducted.  Also gives you peace of mind before you commit.

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Testimonial -   "Sulette is such a lovely, welcoming lady.  She is very experienced and gives amazing advice to the children, which helped my child heal from past experiences. I am so glad that I decided to get in touch for help, and I truly don't think my child would be this happy without the therapy. I am forever grateful. Thanks, Sulette."
