Suzanne McIntyre - BABCP Accredited / Registered Member BACP
Is it anxiety or depression that is troubling you, maybe family expectations or issues relating to bereavement? Perhaps its relationship difficulties or events and challenges that are impacting your self-esteem? I offer a confidential, non-judgemental space where you can be free to bring and explore what matters to you.
Training, qualifications & experience
Have you ever found, no matter how hard you try, parts of your life remain quite perplexing and hard to come to terms with. Therapy can really help you get in touch with such elusive, often difficult aspects. Through the course of therapy, together we will discuss the patterns of the past and new ways of proceeding in the future.
We live in a very complex and at times lonely world, which has many pressures that can trigger varied psychological issues in us.
My therapeutic approaches are tailored to the individual or couple. The therapy process could involve helping with current distress, despair and struggles and their impacts on daily life or simply getting to know yourself and/or your relationships better.
There are many different experiences and dilemmas that can lead people onto therapy and we will explore your issues in an understanding and professional way.
I am an Accredited CBT Therapist, a Registered Counsellor with NHS experience and with further interests and experience in Compassion Focused Therapy and Mindfulness. I work with diagnosed mental health disorders, with feelings of anxiety, depression, with low self-esteem and with difficult relationships in all aspects of our lives. I offer short and long term therapy.
My private practice is in based in both Chelmsford and Braintree

As an accredited member of the British Association of Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapy (BABCP) and registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), I am bound by their ethical framework for good practice in counselling and psychotherapy and I work to both their codes of ethics.
I work in a supportive and open way, making sure your voice is heard and respected. In time you should be able to recognise that you have the potential to understand yourself and your needs, conflicts, anxieties, defences and relationship patterns on a much deeper level, enabling you to explore alternative ways of being and relating, to ultimately bring you a greater personal satisfaction and stability in your life moving forward.
Understandably, finding a CBT Therapist or Counsellor can sometimes be a daunting experience so please be assured of an understanding and compassionate response if you get in touch with me.
