Sues George PGDip Integrative Counsellor UWN MBACP
Hello, thank you for visiting my profile.
I am a warm, compassionate and understanding professionally qualified integrative counsellor and a registered member of the BACP. I live with two friendly cats called Norman and Albert and I enjoy interacting and relating with people from differing backgrounds, cultures and ethnicities in a sensitive and supportive manner. I offer therapeutic counselling within a safe, confidential and comfortable environment.
I believe that we are all unique and intrinsically valuable individuals who are shaped by our past and present experiences. When we find the time to explore our experiences with someone who is trustworthy and non judgemental we can begin to find the keys to unlocking our potential and getting the most out of our lives. I am passionate about helping you reach your potential and overcoming any obstacles you may be facing.
What is counselling?
Counselling is a private and confidential conversation with a therapist who is interested in helping you to explore your past and present experiences and to plan for your future. Each counselling session will usually last for up to one hour and will take place on a day and at a time that is convenient for you. You are in control of how many counselling sessions you want or feel you need. Counselling doesn’t just have to be about having a conversation with a therapist but can be creative and fun.
How can counselling help?
Counselling can help you to explore any thoughts, feelings, behaviours and relationships that may be challenging or problematic, aiming to support you to find positive and helpful ways to find healing and to move forward.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have gained a post graduate diploma in integrative counselling from the University of Wales Newport.
Integrative means that I use aspects from person centred therapy, cognitive behavioural therapy and relational psychodynamic therapy to ensure the "best fit" of counselling model for a client's individual needs and preferences which allows flexibility within the counselling process.
I have experience using a full range of integrative therapies in differing environments including within a generic counselling agency and a project that specifically supports victims and perpetrators of domestic abuse, as well as in my own private practice. I have extensive experience counselling carers of people with dementia and late onset mental illness and working with families to support family functioning. I have previously taught counselling skills at a local F.E. college.
