Susan Hooper MBACP
Good relationships are hugely important to our wellbeing - we often measure our happiness by the quality of our personal relationships. Feeling rejected, misunderstood, undervalued, used, controlled or burdened by others can cause great negativity in our lives.
Being an integrative, person-centred counsellor means that I work with different psychological theories to understand human minds; using a range of theories means we can work in a way that feels most useful to you.
It may be that we explore your personality, internal drives and behaviours. Perhaps it may help to attempt to understand the other person more, with the aim to discover why the relationship is causing your life such difficulty and work to lessen the negativity.
My private counselling practice is situated on the Yew Tree Estate, Yeovil where I offer appointments Mondays and Thursdays only until 7pm.
1:1 sessions only. No couples.
NB:To access my counselling room you need to be able to manage steps and a steep, but brief, slope.
