Suzanne Coussins. MBACP. MNCP Accred. MFDAP.
I am an Integrative Psychotherapist and Counsellor working in Chartridge, Buckinghamshire. Chartridge is conveniently located for Amersham, Chesham and surrounding areas.
I work on both a long-term and short-term basis and my integrative training allows me to call upon a variety of therapeutic approaches. This enables me to relate to my clients’ individual and unique needs.
I believe that our work together can assist in gaining a better understanding of your feelings and how your earlier life experiences can impact the “here and now.”
My practice allows clients to explore their concerns safely and confidentially allowing for the opportunity of growth, self-discovery, change and understanding.
I offer a space that is supportive, non judgemental, compassionate and empathetic.
As well as running a private practice I have also worked within the NHS as a psychotherapist. I adhere to the ethical frameworks of the BACP and UKCP.
I work with both individuals and couples.
I have experience working with:
- Bereavement and Loss.
- Bi-Polar Disorder.
- Childhood Sexual Abuse.
- Couples and Families.
- Divorce and Separation.
- Domestic Violence.
- Eating disorders.
- Personality Disorders.
- Relationship issues.
- Suicidal thoughts.

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
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.
