Hi, I'm Suzanne. I'm a person-centred counsellor and a registered member of the BACP. Being a parent can be the most amazing, wonderful time. However it can be challenging, overwhelming, and distressing too. Feeling confused, lost, stressed, and like you are failing as a parent are all emotions that can be involved. Navigating the tough times is when a little help can make a big difference. Having two children myself, both of which have suffered traumatic events that affected the whole family, I offer a friendly, caring, confidential environment where you will feel heard and understood whilst finding the best way forward for you.
How I might be able to help. Counselling for me felt like a warm blanket of security, an environment of being heard and understood, and this is what I aim to offer you. We can explore your emotions and behaviours in a safe environment in a relationship of mutual trust and respect. Combined with talking, we can use visual aids such as emotion cards, buttons, timelines and diagrams to aid you in understanding your thoughts and feelings. You bring whatever you feel you need to discuss and explore, and together we work towards your goals. I will sit alongside you on your journey as we aim for you to find the solutions and understand what is going on for you, to enable you in feeling able to move forward however you feel is best. There is no rush, sessions are not limited. We work at your pace and review progress together.
Taking the first step is a scary yet brave step, and that is why I offer a free telephone conversation as my first contact, for us to talk things through and see if person-centred counselling, and working with me feels right for you. There is no obligation to book a session, the free chat is the first step on your journey and I aim to put you at ease and aid you in deciding your next step.
I am here to listen and I care. Please take a look at my website to find out a little bit more about me. Thank you
Training, qualifications & experience
I have a Level 4 Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling Skills and I constantly strive to improve my self awareness and develop personally and professionally.
My previous employment has always been within helping roles, having done care work, occupational therapy and physiotherapy. My longest standing role was within the NHS, and was the role I left when traumatic events effected my family. I now volunteer for Samaritans and work in private practice within my counselling role.
Life throwing a few curve balls my way means I have felt how life-changing therapy can be, and I would be honoured to be part of your journey.
