Susan Holcroft - BA (Hons),Psychotherapist and Counsellor. Registered MBACP
PEACE of MIND, HAPPINESS and CONTENTMENT are hard to find and sustain in the world we live in today. Our hectic lifestyles, difficult relationships and pressures of modern living are taking their toll on us all; emotionally, physically and spiritually.
Our Journey to counselling may arise when we are faced with challenging and distressing times in our lives. Feeling ANXIOUS, DEPRESSED,STRESSED or SUFFERING with LOW SELF ESTEEM can be where therapy begins.We may have thoughts and feelings we are struggling to cope with and certain events are becoming overwhelming.
Once a trusting relationship is established it will allow us to work with your distress, enable you to become more self-aware and to make the right choices, for you, in your life.
My personal experience of life, work related stress and training allows me to offer you a time and a place where you can talk freely and experience a non judgemental approach. My location is very discreet and I place a high regard on confidentiality. My hope for you is that you will start to feel better about yourself and/or the situation you find yourself in.

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.
