About me

Hello my name is Susy.  I am a counsellor and want to give you the opportunity to be heard and understood.   My belief is that the power of the therapeutic relationship is a safe place to unravel and explore what is going on beneath the surface.   It is the beginning of finding the real you.
 
All too often our innermost feelings and thoughts are dismissed as not being important and we don’t ask for help  – this has a negative effect on mental and physical wellbeing leading to unwelcome behaviours, stress and depression.   Sometimes problems of low mood, anxiety and poor self esteem are issues we have been carrying around since childhood.  I am able to offer you experience, empathy and realness in a non-judgemental space to help you see things clearer and from a different perspective.  
 
I believe that each and every person is unique and my training as an integrative therapist allows me to work with each client in the best possible way.  This, combined with my kind and sensitive approach, allows us to work together to unravel and understand what is going on, and how to get you to a better place.
 
My own experience of counselling has seen me through difficult times and I want to provide help to those wishing to promote positive change too.    Therapy can give you the chance to focus purely on yourself.    It is a brave thing to seek help and I look forward to helping with whatever is on your mind, no matter how large or small.
 

If you are ready to take that step, send me an email or call me to set up an initial introductory conversation to discuss how we can work together.

‘Don’t set aside your happiness. Don’t wait to be happy in the future. The best time to be happy is always now.’     

I have successfully helped clients with many problems, including lack of confidence, relationships, grief, addiction, low self esteem,  anxiety,  depression,  work-related problems, family disfunction and caring.

I am able to offer both face-to-face and on-line, short or long term therapy for adults of all ages.

Member organisations

BACP

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.
