Susie Holliday MBACP (Registered), Dip.Coun | Person Centred | CBT
Hi there, my name is Susie and I am a qualified counsellor based in Liverpool city centre. Asking for help can be hard and it takes courage to decide that you are ready to do something about how you are feeling or what is happening in your life.
It may be you are going through a difficult time with a life experience, such as a relationship or illness, or that thoughts or emotions you have struggled with for a long time have become too much to carry alone. Sometimes feelings can be complicated and confusing. You may feel unsure about what you are feeling, what you think you should be feeling and how to find a way to make sense of it all.
I would like to offer you the opportunity to talk about what is troubling you with someone who is not involved in your world, does not know your family or friends, and has no expectations of you.
I am a trained humanistic counsellor, this means that I am non-judgemental and the core of my practice is that I provide a friendly, safe space encompassed by empathy and unconditional acceptance. With in the confidential space, difficulties can be explored which can increase your self-understanding in order to bring change and possibilities.
As I am a qualified Cognitive behavioural therapist (CBT) I can bring elements of CBT in a humanistic way. CBT can be additionally beneficial with anxiety disorders, addiction, PTSD, OCD and eating disorders.
