Susan Evans (Reg. MBACP) Post-Grad Dip. Counselling and Psychotherapy Practice.
Counselling really can help you to work your way through many of life's toughest challenges.
I will not only listen to what you tell me, I will hear what you are saying.
I will support you as you find your way to achieving the changes you want to make in your life, and to move forward in your own unique way.
I support clients experiencing a wide range of issues including: managing anxious thoughts and feelings, relationship difficulties, family dynamics, low self-worth, anger, resentment, bereavement, loss, depression, long term health issues, carer responsibilities, stress and childhood experiences.
Prior to becoming a counsellor, I worked for more than twenty years, supporting children, young people and their families as they navigated the many challenges which relationships, life experiences and events can bring. During this time, I supported children and young people, including some experiencing attachment issues, ASD and ADHD.
Currently, I also provide counselling for both young people and adults in third sector settings where I support clients experiencing a wide range of issues. These include: anxiety, depression, low self- esteem, panic, relationship difficulties, family dynamics, anger, resentment, bereavement, loss, depression, long term health issues, carer responsibilities, stress and childhood experiences.
If you think that talking about how you are feeling right now would help, please get in touch. Email, phone or use the contact form on my website: westkirbycounsellor.co.uk.
I look forward to hearing from you.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
