Hi and welcome.
My name is Susanne (also knows as Sanne) and I am a qualified counsellor with experience in working with young people (11-18) and adults, as well as running mental health groups to support people who struggle with anxiety and depression.
I am passionate about providing a space where people regardless of age, sex, gender or ethical background, can feel seen, heard and understood in a warm, empathic and friendly environment.
I offer face to face, Zoom and telephone appointments ~ I also have a limited number of Walk and Talk sessions available.
As an integrative counsellor I adapt my style to suit and support your needs. I do this with care to make sure we go at your pace to allow you to get the most out of our time together.
Remember your experience will be unique to you.

I have 4 years experience of in counselling and 7 years of running and facilitating mental health groups for both adolescence and adults.
I truly believe in the therapeutic process and is aware how much growth and self-awareness it can give you as an individual. It can help you feel understood, valued, accepted as well as reduce anxiety, low mood and depression.
We will work together to find a way of being, which feel right for you.
Since qualifying as a counsellor, I have continued my passion for working with young people and specialised in working with adolescence, to support young people as they transition from child to adult.
This has also given me further insight into struggles people may find themselves having as adults.
I also hold an ACTO qualified in delivering counselling online and on the phone.
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.

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

If you decide to come for counselling we will decide between us (or with your parents/carers - if you are under 18) how we will work together. Usually, it is once a week and ideally at the same time each week. I do work in an open-ended way, which means we are not tied down to a certain amount of sessions.
