Suzanne Ross dip psych, UKCP
I am an accredited psychotherapist and counsellor.
I offer a safe comfortable environment where I will fully listen to you as we explore and clarify your issues, concerns and feelings together. Giving you support and encouragement if you need to make important changes both to your outer and inner life. My aim is to make the sessions an interesting, enriching experience where there is time to contemplate and explore whats happening in a relaxed atmosphere.
I have years of experience in helping peoplewith a wide range of issues such as anxiety, depression, low self esteem, fears, relationship problems, work related issues, decision making, trauma, grief, loss and separation, family entanglements or child issues, health, sexuality, spirituality and stress.
Sometimes there might not be a specific problem it might be that you just feel uneasy, lost, stuck or uncomfortable and want to explore those feelings which can lead to greater clarity and understanding and the possibility of making changes.
My approach is drawn from a number of different models including person centered, humanistic, psychodynamic, CBT, energetic bodywork, healing, stress management and the transpersonal. I have a background in the Arts, Meditation and Mindfulness, Complimentary Therapies and the Business world. I see people from the age of 18 years and over.
