Zsuzsanna Purnell Dip. Con. BSc.
Hi, I am Zsuzsanna, a qualified Transactional Analysis Counsellor.
I have been running my private practice in Hungarian and in English. I am very thankful to have met so many brave and beautiful people, vulnerable hearts and interesting life stories. It has really been a pleasure and honor to see those hidden wings get stronger.
Having worked as a counsellor, I have noticed the limitations that talking therapy has to offer and this is why I have developed my own style of working creatively with people and with their inner child. I focus on the body, mind, and spirit as a whole to enable people to find their truth and power.
About the therapy:
First I will invite you for a free 50 minutes consultation, where we can find out if we are the perfect match or not. If we decide that we want to work together, we will be meeting at least once a week: it can be in a nice and cosy therapy room or it can be outdoor if that is what you prefer.
The sessions are private and confidential. We will discuss what you would like to change in your life (sometimes this is the hardest bit) and then with your power and dedication and with my expertise you will achieve it. Simple, isn't it?
My main priority is to maintain an ethical practice, to keep a non- judgemental attitude towards my clients as well as to expand my learning. If you would like to find out more about how I can help, please get in touch and I will be happy to help.

In addition to counselling, I'm a wife, a mum, a stepmom, a sister, a friend - amongst other things. I have been fascinated about the human mind all my life and after discovering a book by Eric Berne I became determined to use Transactional Analysis method in order to help others.
After years of learning about others, about myself and about the colourful dynamics between people I started working as a counsellor at Change Grow Live. Here I had the pleasure of deepening my knowledge further on addiction. I am greatly thankful to my clients who shared their life journeys with me, who taught me what it was really like to suffer from addiction and the constant self-hatred that goes with it most cases. At the same time working for CGL, I had a counsellor job with the YMCA, where I worked with troubled teenagers. Here I learned a lot about the bullying that goes on in schools, the danger in the use of social media and I began educating families on how to keep their beloved teenagers safe and happy.
At the moment combining two of my passions, I am starting up a weekly football group; teens against parents. Here, parents and teens can bond and fight in a fun and safe environment. I have a strong passion to help families and prevent separation of parents if possible.
