Susie Pye, Registered Member MBACP (Accred)
I am a counsellor experienced in working with people with a variety of issues. I help people with concerns such as anxiety and depression, bereavement, relationship problems, or low self-esteem, or who may feel unhappy, or uncertain about the future.
My approach centres on the belief that the relationship between counsellor and client is at the heart of our work together. I provide a warm and supportive environment in which we work to explore what you bring, increase self-awareness, or consider changes in your life. I am also a coach; my combination of coaching and counselling skills enables me to work flexibly to meet your needs.
Getting in touch
I am based at the Oxford Community Health Hub in West Oxford. I work in an accessible ground floor location, with car and bike parking, and easy access to the railway station and local bus routes. I also work in the East Oxford/Headington area.
If you would like to find out more, please contact me by phone or e-mail to arrange an initial consultation meeting. This meeting is to discuss what you are looking for, see how we get on and enable you to decide if you would like to work with me.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have a Diploma in Transactional Analysis (TA) counselling from TAWorks, Oxford; this training integrates coaching and therapeutic counselling.
I have worked in various local organisation and community settings, and have a particular interest in widening access to counselling and coaching by providing more affordable services.
Before training as a counsellor, I worked as a language teacher, an environmental campaigner, and an environmental policy manager in local government, where I trained and practised as a coach. I also worked as a volunteer coach and mentor with Refugee Resource in Oxford.
I continue to volunteer for the mental health charity Restore, coaching people who have experienced mental health problems who want to return to employment.

Other areas of counselling I deal with
Coaching can be a good option for people who want to think about things such as conflict or stress at work, or uncertainty about the future. I often work with people going through transitions like career change or retirement, helping them towards a specific outcome, exploring options, and identifying strengths and resources.
