Susan Steer Supervisor, BA Hons in Counselling, MBACP (Accred)
Due to the current Corona virus outbreak any counselling will be offered as telephone or zoom sessions for the foreseeable future. These are difficult times, but you don't have to be alone. There will be times when we all experience emotional difficulties in our lives and where we will often look for support from our family and friends. Sometimes, however, this is not enough.
Hello and welcome. My name is Sue and I am an accredited member of the British Association for Counsellors and Psychotherapists and I respect and practice within its ethical framework. I offer confidential face to face counselling in a warm, comfortable and friendly riverside office setting in Stockton. This is easily accessible from the A19 and has ample parking.
I have substantial experience working with both male and female adults and young people. This includes working with a variety of issues from anxiety and depression through to relationship and anger management
I offer a confidential and safe space in which to explore your experiences and issues offering a person-centred counselling service to give you the opportunity to make changes in your life. Feeling heard and understood is often the first step towards change. So, I invite you to take some time for yourself. If you would like to discuss how I can help you, please give me a call or email me.

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.
