Susan Foley Dip.Couns. BA (Hons)
Hello and welcome to my profile.
My journey into counselling began over ten years ago, when I faced my own difficult life experiences. Through counselling I was able to explore my own unresolved issues that had held me back from finding a more complete and peaceful self.
Throughout my career I have worked in a supportive role. I trained as a nursery nurse and worked in primary school for some years before moving into family support. Once my own children had grown I set out to realise my ambition of becoming a counsellor.
I value the uniqueness of an individual’s life script, and how our experiences have helped shape the person that we become. I understand how daunting attending a first counselling session can be – the first step is always the hardest.....
Working as an integrative practitioner, it is my aim to provide a safe, confidential and sensitive setting to enable your counselling journey to begin. Working therapeutically, I will support and work alongside you in enabling you to have a deeper understanding of your issue and how you may make changes, achieve an aspiration or develop a greater sense of well-being in your life.

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.
