About me

Thanks so much for visiting my page. My name is Suzie and I'm a qualified psychotherapist with over a decade of experience. I’ve worked successfully with a wide range of issues including burn-out at work, anxiety, divorce, depression, narcissistic parenting and childhood sexual abuse (to name but a few). I have worked for over a decade as a therapist helping clients find their way.

A little about me...after graduating from university in London, I trained as an accountant, later specialising in Forensic work with one of the Big Four firms. After 10 years of working hard in the City, I experienced the inevitable burnout. Through this process, a breakdown resulted in a breakthrough. I decided the corporate career ladder wasn't for me and to head in a different direction. 

I've always been fascinated about why we do/say/feel/think the things we do and I wanted to help others like I had been helped when I was struggling. And so I went back to school and graduated as a qualified psychotherapist and a registered member of BACP and UKCP six years later. And the rest as they say is history!

Please note I work mainly online via Zoom and also see clients for in-person sessions from my space in Guildford, Surrey.

Please contact me to arrange an initial call (at no cost or obligation) to discuss how we might take things forward, including a possible first session.

I don’t prescribe to one specific area, preferring to work with what you decide to bring to therapy, thereby embracing the wide diversity of issues which can arise out of our varied lives.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am trained as an integrative, transpersonal psychotherapist.

I trained at CCPE (the largest training centre for Transpersonal psychotherapy in the UK). My training lasted six years and during this, I worked for various different charities as a counsellor/ support worker including Victim Support and Mind. I also worked as a volunteer counsellor at a women’s centre in Kingston for 5 years.

The official qualification I have is a diploma in counselling and psychotherapy. This diploma is accredited by the BACP and UKCP (see below for info on these two organisations). Plus I have a Certificate in the Foundations of Counselling and Psychotherapy.

I am a registered member of BACP and a registered member of UKCP.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

UKCP
UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP)

The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) is a leading professional body for the education, training and regulation of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors. Its register is accredited by the government's Professional Standards Authority.

As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.

UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

BACP
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
