About me

Hi, I'm Susannah, I'm a fully qualified, insured counsellor and registered member of the BACP working online and in Epsom, Surrey.

I provide a relaxed, friendly and non judgemental environment in which clients may safely explore and work through issues that may be proving problematic, concerning or stressful. I offer both online and telephone counselling sessions.

Working together.

I am a person-centred existential therapist, which means as the client you are always in control of your own therapy. I will listen to what you would like to achieve from our time together and will be guided by you at all times.

I will support and facilitate your exploration of the areas you would like to look at, ensuring your well-being and autonomy throughout. Our time together will be unique to you with therapy focused on meeting your needs and working towards the goals/desired outcome YOU wish to achieve.

I work with clients 16 years and above across a whole range of areas including:

Self-worth and confidence related problems, stress, panic and generalised anxiety, depression, rejection and abandonment, eating disorders and body dysmorphia, domestic violence, sexual abuse, divorce and family issues, relationship difficulties, redundancy and work-related concerns.

I specialise in identity and personal image related issues, and currently I help with the wide ranging effects corona virus and lock down are having on our lives.

Getting started

Please feel free to call or email me in the first instance to discuss your particular needs or ask any questions you may have. I offer a free initial telephone session and all contact is confidential. I look forward to hearing from you.

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.
