About me

Hello, my name is Susan.


I am a registered member of the BACP and  listed on the BACP  Accredited Voluntary Register (AVR) and an accredited member of the National Counselling Society.   As an Advanced Counsellor and Psychotherapist, I work with an Integrative approach, therefore using different therapeutic techniques to tailor a treatment plan to suit each individual. The types of therapy I work with are Psychodynamic Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Person Centred Therapy, Gestalt Therapy, Thought Field Therapy (TFT),  Emotional Freedom Therapy (EFT) and Hypnotherapy.

I offer a confidential, understanding and empathic approach to my clients and always aim to help clients understand their difficulties by ways of exploring their own thoughts and feelings, helping them to achieve a satisfactory outcome.

I work with both adults and young people 16+ in private practice, where I can offer a safe, secure and comfortable environment in a private consulting room within my home.  I work with private self-referrals and referrals from outside agencies . I have previously worked as a school counsellor helping students with emotional and behavioural problems, uncovering unconscious thoughts and processes.

I have attended training in Asperger Syndrome and have worked as a volunteer Group Support Worker with the Asperger Society.  I have  completed an Asperger Personal Assistant training course and therefore have a good knowledge of Asperger Syndrome, helping both the client and their families to manage the challenging behaviours they face daily.

I have medical knowledge having previously worked in the NHS for 12 years in an admin, secretarial and managerial role, covering GP surgeries, The GP Out of Hours Service, The Primary Care Trust and local hospitals, which included Mental Health services .

As a Member of BACP I am bound by its Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy, the Ethical Guidelines for Researching Counselling and Psychotherapy (where practitioners undertake research) and subject to the Professional Conduct Procedure for the time being in force". Advanced Professional Diploma (Course 4) in Counselling and Psychotherapy (accredited).
