About me

Welcome

My name is Susan Collins and I’m enthusiastic about people having a sense of well-being and self worth; in fact your well-being is at the heart of our work together. I promise you unconditional acceptance regardless of who you are, where you’re from, or what you believe. I will work hard to understand your feelings and experiences as we work together and to help you feel better.

What is Counselling?

Counselling is a ‘Talking Therapy’ which allows you to explore and work through issues and experiences which are negatively impacting your ability to move forward healthily with your life.

As Human Beings we have an inner desire to be the best that we can be, striving for acceptance but sometimes we lose our way. This is when Counselling can help.

As we work together our aim will be to set the right conditions in order that you can you once again feel more self-accepting, worthy, confident, freer and with a greater sense of overall well-being.

What is Counselling for?

Life is not always a bed of roses and there are times in our lives when our circumstances leave us wondering which way to turn. When something happens suddenly and unexpectedly we can be left doubting our ability to cope.

You might not want your family and friends to know that you feel vulnerable because you feel scared of not being understood and then rejected.

At these times of change it may help to talk to someone who not part of your close family and friends circle, who won’t be affected by your choices but who will accept you exactly as you are.

What do I offer?

I offer One - to One Adult Counselling wither face-to-face, by telephone and online.       

(Please note: I do not offer Couples or Adolescent (under 18's) Counselling)

My work is open ended which means that you can take as long, or short, a time as you feel you need to reach your goals and your own sense of well-being. I do not limit the number of sessions that you may have. We will continue weekly sessions until you feel better.

For face to face work I use rooms at Complementary Health Centre, at Rock Park, Llandrindod Wells (currently unavailable due to Corona Virus Outbreak)

When you choose Telephone or Online Counselling with me, I promise to be in a private and undisturbed room where my end of the conversation will not be overheard. This is my commitment to maintain confidentiality for you.

I offer you a high standard of care within a confidential, professional relationship where I promise to be non-judgemental, empathic, honest and genuine.

Not sure?

If you're not sure whether Counselling is for you then, I will happily offer you a free of charge 30-minute telephone session for us to briefly chat about your worries; that way you can check me out and decide if you want me to work with you. Just ask for this service when you contact me.

Where to find me?

I am based in Mid-Wales but can take calls and online connections from anywhere in the UK, simply email me at contact@peacefulsoul.uk or phone me on 07505 133222
