About me

If you are looking for help with anxiety, depression or find yourself feeling bad about yourself and lacking in motivation, I can provide specialist individual or couple therapy. My specialist areas of expertise are working with depression, anxiety and low self-esteem. I also work with other problems including PTSD, OCD and relationship difficulties. I work in a collaborative, non-judgmental way, and am always able to take a compassionate approach to difficulties, and help my clients to do the same over time.  As a Clinical Psychologist I am trained in many different approaches, so can work with you to find the most effective approach for you. To set up an initial session, just call 07855 379543 or email me on sue@summerpsychologyservices.co.uk.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am Chartered Clinical Psychologist based in Sandy, Bedfordshire. I completed my Doctorate in Clinical Psychology in Leicester in 2009. I am also a Systemic Practitioner having completed two years post-graduate training at Anglia Ruskin University in 2013. I moved to Sandy in 2016 and have been working privately with individuals and families in this area since then.

I have worked in the NHS in older adult services for over ten years so am experienced with a variety of presenting difficulties. As a Clinical Psychologist I have completed training in various therapeutic approaches.  I have completed advanced training in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Compassion-focussed approaches and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. This gives me a range of techniques and skills to draw on.

Further information

I can also offer supervision, training and workshops for organisations. I am currently working online due to the pandemic, and feedback from my clients is that this is a very acceptable way of working. I have some limited walk and talk sessions available for those who prefer face to face, and don't mind being outside in the changeable British weather!

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
