Susan Livingstone MNCS (Accred)
I was going to say a few things about me, but that's not why you're here. You're here because you recognise it's time to talk about you. I can help with that. I have worked extensively with clients who experience professional "burn out", relationship issues, bereavement and loss, trauma. The list goes on. Having juggled work, family, personal loss, training and much more in recent years, I understand overwhelm. This experience means that I will listen without judgement, empathise and help you find ways to cope, moving on from the unhealthy habits and emotions you're stuck in. We'll work collaboratively towards your goals.
To get started, please use any of the contact details on my profile here. I will call you to discuss your needs and to arrange our first session. At the first session we will agree on how to follow up (usually weekly or fortnightly sessions, depending on your preference). I take payment for the first session during the initial call and at the beginning of each subsequent session (cash or card payment only).
Training, qualifications & experience
I trained with the College of Cognitive Behavioural Therapies in London, completing each of their 4 diplomas in CBT/REBT and Integrative Therapies.
