Suzanna Brodie, Post Grad Dip, BA (hons), MBACP reg
I am a qualified, experienced therapist, counsellor and BACP registered member. I work with clients suffering with addiction, anxiety, depression and relationship issues. I offer a warm and empathetic approach in a comfortable, intimate and confidential environment.
I work with clients to explore what is behind their addictions, anxiety or depression so they may gain a better understanding of themselves and the choices they are making, thus building greater self esteem and empowering themselves.
I provide a safe non-judgemental space so it is possible to talk about any current challenges you may be facing and to reflect back on your life to identify patterns of relating and ways of being in the world. I believe this holding experience to be at the heart of change and overcoming difficulties.
I currently work at The Farm Dayhab, an online rehab offering a 28 day mental health and addiction teatment programme. I run group therapy and 1-1's alongside my private practise; https://thefarmdayhab.com/
I have in-depth experience of 12 step recovery programmes and have worked in a multitude of settings, including a male prison for 'The Forward Trust', an organisation working towards change within the prison system for people struggling with addiction. I have also seen clients through the NHS at a Women's Centre providing short and long term therapy, alongside my private practise.
Taking the first step is often not easy. I am happy to have an initial chat on the phone to see whether you feel we can work together. I hope to help you move forward with more awareness of yourself and explore your choices to feel happier and derive meaning in your life.
Training, qualifications & experience
I studied at Regents University where I gained the Certificate, followed by a Diploma of Higher Education in Counselling and Psychotherapy. I run groups centred around addiction and trauma and specialise in this field.
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).
