About me

Hi my name is Susan Timson @ Serenity Counselling. I am a Counsellor for people from all walks of life who often experience overwhelming degrees of stress; causing them to feel anxious, worried, depressed, detached and distracted. When experiencing any  of these feelings or in this state i understand and am aware of the impact this can have on people and relationships, not only toward family members but also work colleagues and the effect it can have socially.

Anxiety and depression can impact on anyone and at times it can take a while to recognise the feelings and emotions leading  to both depression and anxiety, at times i have known it to be passed off  off as just one of those things. I am ok! 

If you are looking at that and thinking,  that is not me, i don,t fit that profile, my problems are not that great! I am high functioning and able to manage on some levels - please think again. If the issues going on for you are enough to have an impact in any way, then for you they are great. 

I have trained integratively enabling me to use different Therapeutic orientations to tailor the Therapy to treat a clients unique needs.  This also allows me to deliver a very bespoke individual service to all!  enabling me to guide people towards the skills they need to process change.  From a life of anxiety, worry and depression to improvement in self esteem, and achieve empowerment and control in in their lives. This all takes place in a safe, non judgemental space. The hardest step is the first one!

Since qualifying with the Counselling and Psychotherapy central awarding body  (CPCAB) in 2011 and adhering to the British Association for counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) I use a number of proven Psychological frameworks to guide people  towards the understanding

Member organisations

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
