Susan Hooper MBACP
Counselling can be thought-provoking and potentially life-shaping; talking about relationships, life events, feelings, your ways of thinking and defences with a qualified counsellor goes beyond that of a chat with a friend.
My genuine interest in your world, your insights and processes, can help you to understand yourself better, see things in a different way, resolve to make changes maybe.
Being an integrative, person-centred counsellor means that I have studied and work with a number of different theories to understand human minds, seeking to appreciate your experiences, behaviours and the choices in order to help you made healthier choices.
My private counselling practice is situated on the Yew Tree Estate, just off Lysander Road, Yeovil where I offer appointments Monday and Thursdays only.
NB:To access my counselling room you need to be able to manage steps and a steep, but brief, slope.
