Suzy Smith MBACP
My name is Suzy and I am an experienced and fully qualified BACP registered Counsellor working from central and South London.
I work with a person-centred approach. This means I treat people with dignity and respect by being aware of and supporting personal perspectives, values, beliefs and preferences. We work at a pace and in a way that is comfortable for you. I also use an integrative style, which means I sometimes use tools and methods from other therapy models when appropriate.
My experience includes working in addiction recovery and in prisons. I am able to work in a sensitive manner, no matter what your background or worries. I understand that coming to counselling can feel overwhelming and want to make you feel as comfortable as possible.
I have experience of working with clients with learning disabilities, as well as ADHD and Autism/Asperger’s. I am happy to discuss working in a way that is comfortable to my clients and make any adjustments that may be appropriate.
I offer a non-judgmental approach, and all sessions are confidential so that you can feel safe. Each session will last for an hour.
I can work long or short term, dependant on your needs.
Your first session will be for one hour and will be an opportunity for you to meet me and discuss your needs. We can then decide if you want to continue, and what support I am able to provide.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions you have, I look forward to hearing from you.
