About me

Suzi is a clinical psychotherapist who is experienced in working with adults and young people (ages 11-16). She works with a wide range of issues known for causing psychological distress. These issues vary from anxiety to low self-esteem/confidence, stress, depression, addiction, grief and loss, bereavement, relationship issues, anger issues, abuse, self-harm, bullying and trauma.

The Person Centred approach is the primary modality Suzi uses as she is passionate about self-discovery, self -development and personal growth. Her desire is that all her clients are able to discover their inner strength and reach their full potential, which she believes brings about wholeness and inner peace and the zeal to live a more fulfilling life.

Sessions are suited to meet the individual needs and preferences of her clients. Effective features from various approaches such as the Psychodynamic approach, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy are incorporated into sessions to help maximise the healing and breakthrough of her clients. Suzi works to help clients recognise past trauma’s that may be affecting their current life and make positive changes. She helps clients identify, challenge and control unhelpful thoughts and works with them towards establishing a healthier thought process.

Suzi is warm, welcoming and down to earth. She empathetically embraces her clients and empowers them with positivity.

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
