Su Hewitt (nee Rawlinson)
I am a humanistic integrative counsellor, which means I draw on many theories to apply the best technique for the most success in addressing arising issues, if that seems appropriate. My technique offers assistance with many aspects of life, including work, relationships, health, making decisions, painful experiences, sexual and gender issues, or loss. I can assist young people, children, and adults.
I follow the BACP ethical guidelines, and their codes of practice. I treat all information with respect and as confidential at all times, and only in very specific instances, would it be likely that client information would be made available to someone else. These circumstances would be made very clear, agreed, and any disclosure would only happen with the client's prior knowledge.
I provide one-to-one individual, and couples counselling. Sessions are usually weekly, and 50 minutes in duration for individuals and 60 minutes for couples, with the exception of the first session in some instances.
I work with long term and short term clients, depending on the requirements of the client. I also offer top up sessions post-treatment and online therapy after working with individuals face-to-face for a while first.

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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
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).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
