About me

Hi, my name is Suzanne Wilkinson, and I am a psychotherapeutic counsellor and hypnotherapist. I offer counselling in Sunderland City Centre and also via Zoom or telephone.

I am an integrative counsellor which means I use different elements of specific therapies, creating a tailored therapy session for each client. I appreciate how hard it can be to make the right choice of counsellor to meet your needs. With this in mind, I offer a free consultation, either face to face, by Zoom or by telephone. This gives you the opportunity to meet me and talk about how I can support you, without any obligations.

I have volunteered for Cruse Bereavement Care for over two years and have supported people of all age groups. I am based in Hope Street Xchange (beside Sunderland University in the City Centre). It provides free visitors car parking and there are public transport links close by. There is also a café on the ground floor of the building that is open to the public (closed at the moment due to Covid-19).

Key details

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
