Susan Arckless MSc. BACP Accredited. Counsellor/Psychotherapist. Supervisor
You have overcome the first and probably the hardest obstacle by recognising your need for support. Time is needed to open up and express feelings in a safe confidential space, reflecting on how you are responding to personal challenges, exploring the way you relate to yourself and those around you,
Counselling is a joint process of exploration and reflection, I have over 20 years experience of working with both adults and children which has enabled me to develop a deep understanding of a wide range of issues that may become overwhelming in your life.
Counselling is the first stage of affecting positive change by building confidence and self esteem, empowering you to make healthy choices.
I work from an integrative theoretical style which means that I am not restricted to one approach as I believe that we are all uniquely different.
Evenings, Weekdays and Weekend appointments available.
I also offer telephone counselling if you would prefer.
I hold a current CRB certificate.
I have public liability insurance.
I have a small therapy dog called Bella who can join us within our sessions if requested
