About me

Hi, I'm Suzy, a person-centred therapist with a deep trust in the healing capacity that a counselling and psychotherapy relationship can provide.

I strive to build counselling relationships in which clients feel empowered and listened too, as I offer an attentive, understanding and accepting space.

I am a naturally empathic person and this helps me in my endeavour to form genuine and prizing relationships. I believe we always understand the other via ourselves, through our kinship as fellow human beings.

The nature of my counselling practice allows people to explore their difficulties; acquiring compassion, patience, and gentleness for self, the ability to feel in the present, to develop healthy boundaries that allow personal growth and healing.

How I work

I am extremely attracted to the Person-Centred Approach, in which I'm trained, as it comes from a position that emphasises the uniqueness of each individual. Seeing beyond labels to the person, I recognise that it is you that knows yourself best. Each session is guided by what you want to do. I won’t say what we should be doing or talking about. My aim is to create an environment where you can work through your difficulties at your own pace. 

My own experience as a client is valuable in enhancing my awareness, I know that the following qualities are especially important if you are to feel comfortable in sharing your difficulties: trustworthiness, honesty, being kind, supportive and respectful of you. There are profound benefits in experiencing a therapy relationship which is co-created and emerges out of equal, genuine, empathic caring and where these attitudes are perceived by both.

What to expect

I think a sufficiently safe and trusting atmosphere is fundamental to growth.  I will take you and your difficulties seriously, I am a good listener and I am prepared to invest the time into building a relationship. I am open-minded and non-judgemental.  Having someone to talk to who understands is an important part of counselling and recovery. 

By fostering therapy relationships where you are encouraged to speak in your own voice, in a climate of exploration; my experience is that you can develop the confidence and self-belief and an enhanced awareness of how to work through problems as they arise ~ guiding you in the exploration of possibilities and impossibilities. I offer a genuineness that isn't always available to us in our everyday lives, this quality of presence can be deeply therapeutic and lead to greater self-insight and self-understanding.  

If you would like to find out more about how I can help, please get in touch.

Areas of counselling I deal with

Other areas of counselling I deal with

I often work with clients who are in crisis and I work with clients who are experiencing particular areas of difficulty including anxiety, depression, sexual abuse and sexual violence, low self-image, self-injury and self-harm, suicidal thoughts, PTS and post traumatic growth, diversity and identity issues, relationship difficulties and domestic violence.

I also work with young people who are living within social care settings and with mothers who have had children removed to this system. I work with people who are struggling with difficult family and friendship dynamics and with bullying and exclusion. I have knowledge, experience and understanding working with autism and neurodiversity. (Age range 16+)

I have a nuanced appreciation of the complexities of oppression in areas of diversity and an innate understanding of identity trauma and the human condition in all its intricacies. This is helpful in therapy where it is crucial to comprehend issues pertaining to power and powerlessness and the ways these factors are heightened in traditional hierarchical systems.

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.
