Susan

Susan is a fully qualified person-centred counsellor, registered with the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP) and works with adults and children over 9 years.

Susan is a qualified Person-centred therapist with several years’ experience working for a charity organisation where she worked with children, young people, and adults. Whilst at the organisation she worked within schools to support children when life became challenging, whether the challenges arose from school or home related issues.

She has been established in private practice since 2019, where she continues to support others.  In private practice during the covid pandemic Susan supported NHS workers who worked in the care home sector, whilst also providing a service to the young people she worked with.

Susan provides her clients with a tailor-made service in a safe, confidential and secure space.   She feels this is beneficial in meeting her individual client’s needs as there is no one size fits all, and each person may need a different ways of working with therapy.  This may be talking one to one, the use of sand, paint, drawing, doodling, memory boxes, and/or playing games.  This ensures she provides her clients with the methods and tools in which you can explore any of your worries or concerns.

Susan works with all aspects of abuse, whether the here and now or historically. She also works with trauma from suicidal thoughts, sexual abuse, self-harm, bereavement, grief, loss, domestic violence and abuse, work/relationship/friendship related stress, mild to moderate Autism, moderate mental health, and anxiety.

The world around us has an impact on us all, sometimes good, and sometimes not. Talking helps us to process it all, explore it and learn how to internally manage it, to get the best in life and what we need from it.   She can help you improve how you communicate your needs but also help you to understand others and the world around you.

Susan has had a varied life since leaving school some 35+ years ago and has lived abroad and worked in a variety of different job settings.   She is also a wife and a mum.   She lives with disabilities and difficulties, so her understanding of these challenges comes from a lived experience along with living with M.E and childhood trauma.
