Susan Jane Therapy (Susan Tennant)
Hi, my name is Susan.
Welcome to my profile and thank you for taking the time to read it.
I am a fully qualified registered professional counsellor.
Do you want to understand why you feel sad or angry?
Do you want to identify what has lead you to this point in your life?
Do you want to know how to communicate more effectively and assertively, to be able to say how you feel, and ask for what you need to feel better?
Acknowledging that how you feel now is not how you want to feel or how you want to live your life. Being able to process it and to move forwards towards a more confident and happy life. If you want to feel comfortable with who you are, then counselling can step in and help.
I can provide that safe space to talk freely, where you feel listened to and supported. I will not judge or give opinions, but will provide coping techniques, and will encourage exploring ideas and options.
I can help you find ways to overcome areas that feel completely stuck and worthless, and encourage the ability to look at change to provide hope.
I work with you as an individual not as a set pattern of procedures. It is important to me that you feel safe, comfortable and respected at all times.
I offer an environment that is professional, welcoming and genuine, and far removed from anything clinical.
If it be Anxiety, Depression, Stress, Self-esteem, Relationships, Childhood or overwhelmed by emotions and life and want change, then counselling could help.
If this sounds like something you think you may want to give a go, or you wish to have an initial chat or have any questions on how counselling could help you, please do get in touch.
Please be assured that if you leave a message I will get back to you.

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.
