Susan Brill, RM (BACP) ~ (Adults £25-£30, Couples £40, Home Visits £35)
BACP Registered Counsellor ~ I am a highly experienced counsellor, and have worked in my own Private Practice for 5 years. I offer a professional, confidential, affordable counselling service, (£25 up to 4pm, £30 5pm onwards, £40 couples, home visits £35), for a 60 minute session. Home visits for those unable to travel to Wake House due to disability or severe anxiety.
I am a Registered Member of The British Association of Counsellors & Psychotherapists, and hold full Indemnity Insurance. I work from a private room in Wake House, Bourne, Lincs, offering a safe, comfortable, light, airy and quiet space for you to work through your concerns. (Room 26 has been newly refurbished - See photos below).
The primary goal of any form of counselling therapy is to release the client from any emotional distress, mental confusion and/or limiting beliefs. Counselling arms the client with the opportunity to become more self-aware, and more in control of creating the sort of positive changes they want to see in their life.

£25 - Individuals up to 4pm
£30 - Individuals 5pm onwards

TESTIMONIALS - (A selection of messages received from my clients):
- "After only a couple of sessions, I was able to talk about deep seated issues I had buried deep in my mind".
- "Long term counselling was right for me. I have had short term counselling 4 times in the past but never felt as 'cleansed' as I do now."
- "At the beginning of counselling I couldn't answer the phone, put the rubbish out or even go into my garden. I needed an escort to go anywhere. Now I can walk around our village with confidence on my own, and I am even using the bus to go places!."
-"Thank you so much Sue, you made a real difference and helped me more that you know!."
- "At the end of my counselling journey I described myself as a crysallis who has emerged into a beautiful butterfly."
- "I can never thank you enough. I feel better than I have since my children were tiny (1990)."
- "Thank you for all your support over the past 2 years Sue, for giving me the opportunity to unpick my thoughts, for timely prompts and sensitive questioning....I have grown a lot - and learned a lot from you."
-"You will never know how life-changing this experience has been for me".
