Susie Bates - Psychotherapist
Hello, I am Susie, a qualified psychotherapist working in Carmarthen and Cardigan. My approach to counselling is person centred providing the opportunity for you to be listened to and supported.
My initial focus is on building a warm and empathetic relationship with you, to hold space for you so we can then begin to explore whatever has brought you to seek counselling. We all have struggles in our lives, these may be present day issues you are struggling with or issues from your past that are causing you problems or leaving you feeling stuck. Together we can explore ways to move forward with any difficulties that best suit you as an individual. We will work at your own pace in a way which feels safe and appropriate for you.
I have gained experience of working with a number of issues including anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, trauma, childhood abuse and relationship difficulties. I have worked as a volunteer with West Wales Domestic Abuse Service and continue to volunteer with Carmarthenshire Counselling Service.
I offer both short and long term counselling, we can decide which suits you best when we meet. The first session can be an opportunity to meet and for you decide if I am the right person for you to work with. Please feel free to contact me.
I am a Registered Member of British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy and work to their ethical guidelines. I am in reciept of regular supervision.
