Sue Day MBACP (registered)
Thank you for looking at my profile. My name is Sue and I offer relational therapeutic counselling on a one to one basis. I believe that counselling can really help people make the changes they are seeking and can transform their lives. I work in an integrative way, utilising a blend of theoretical approaches to enable me to work with you in the most effective way to meet your individual needs.
How counselling can help;
I have experience in working with issues such as anxiety (including generalised anxiety disorder), depression, relationship difficulties, self-worth and loss/grief. I have a particular interest in working with issues leading to and surrounding various addictions. Perhaps you may be considering making changes in your life or you feel like you have reached a point where ‘enough is enough’ and you don’t want to deal with it on your own anymore? I will aim to build a trusting, strong therapeutic relationship with you, where you can begin to discover more about you, identify your choices and strengthen your personal resilience.
Perhaps there is something in your past which is stopping you realising your potential in the 'here and now'? I will offer you a non-judgemental space where you can explore and begin to understand and accept your personal history.
What to expect when you contact me;
I know it can take a lot of courage to ask for help. I understand this and I will meet you with warmth, without any judgement and try to help you on your path forward.
Life can throw us some massive curve balls, life events can send us reeling, human lives rarely run smoothly all the time. You don’t have to negotiate this on your own. Please contact me if you would like to book an initial session with me and start your therapeutic journey.
I am a registered member of the BACP (MBACP) which means I am committed to working ethically with you and put your wellbeing at the centre of our work together.
Where I work;
I work from two different locations, Leighton Buzzard and Pitstone. I offer daytime and evening appointments. Please let me know which location you prefer when you contact me. I work from dedicated therapy rooms in Central Leighton Buzzard. There is plenty of parking options in Leighton Buzzard and I can advise on the best place for you when you contact me. It also has excellent public transport links.
My Pitstone based room is a lovely therapeutic space and has the benefit of off street parking as well as plenty of spaces on Cheddington Road itself.
