Sue Sichel MA, MBACP, BAAT, HCPC (Accred) Integrative Psychotherapist
I am an experienced counsellor/psychotherapist, my approach is to offer empathetic understanding and non-judgemental listening in a safe space. Everyone is unique and therefore I draw on many different methods to suit each person's needs. My aim is to connect my client with their own inner resources through authenticity and self-empowerment.
I work with individuals, children and adolescents offering - short and long term therapy, with flexible working hours. I offer a sliding scale for people on low income and students.
I offer a compassionate, safe and confidential environment that supports the exploration and expression of feelings, thoughts, beliefs and circumstances that may be having an adverse effect on emotional well-being and quality of life.
Sometimes we just need a space to be still and reflect, a space where we feel accepted, understood and supported in gaining a deeper awareness into why we behave the way we do or that can offer us an alternative perspective on challenging life situations.
My aim is to support you in making sense of your life and working with you in moving to where you would like to be.
Training, qualifications & experience
I offer an integrative arts approach, based on the needs of the client, drawing upon art and psychodynamic psychotherapy, which means that I work in a way which explores what lies beneath our actions and repetitive patterns of behaviour, how the past affects the present; our relationships, our work and our feelings.
I currently work for a charity, managing and providing supervision to therapists offering counselling to children, parents and teachers in Central London.
In my private practice I work with children, young people and adults (in short and long-term therapy) as well as providing supervision to both qualified and trainee counsellors/therapists..
I have an MA in Psychodynamic and Art Psychotherapy. I am a registered member of BACP (the professional body that regulates psychotherapists in the UK), I am an accredited member of The Bristish Association of Art Therapists. I am a registered member of HCPC. I am DBS cleared and have regular 1:1 supervision.

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
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.
Health and Care Professions Council
The HCPC are an independent, UK-wide health regulator. They set standards of professional training, performance and conduct for 16 professions.
They keep a register of health professionals who meet their standards, and they take action if registered health professionals fall below those standards. They were created by a piece of legislation called the Health Professions Order 2001.
Registration means that a health professional meets national standards for their professional training, performance and conduct.
