Suzanne March, Registered MBACP (Accred), Dip. Couns. Counsellor/Psychotherapist
I am a Registered and Accredited Member of BACP with over 18 years experience. I practice in Maidstone and have been accredited for over 10 years. I work with adults, couples, older adults and young people over the age of 16. I provide long term and short term counselling.
My approach is integrative using different theoretical models within the humanistic framework including CBT, TA, Gestalt and Person-Centred. I work with stress, anxiety, depression, loss, bereavement, relationships and couples, separation and divorce, work and health related issues, personal development and others, as outlined below. I have worked in primary care with the NHS as well as privately, and have over 5 years specialist counselling experience of working with bereavement and loss. I have additional training in couple and relationship issues, am an approved counsellor/psychotherapist for various health insurance companies and EAP providers and I am also a Relate trained Trainer.
I am insured, have regular professional supervision, and abide by BACP's Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling & Psychotherapy.
It can be very difficult taking that first step to come to counselling. I offer Initial Consultations in order that you may assess whether counselling is the right way forward for you. Some concessions are available.
