About me and my therapy practice
I am a qualified, experienced counsellor with experience of working with adults, teenagers and children over 9 years of age. As an Approved Counsellor with Banardo's adoption agency regulated by Ofsted, I am able to assist adoptive adults who require family support, adoptees, and birth parents. (I have recently trained in Attachment Focused Therapy and Life Story Work).
I am also qualified in couple therapy and have been working with charities such as Marriage/Relationship Care. I offer compassionate, affordable counselling help in a quiet, confidential location. Please check my website for further information: www.susanoakleycounselling.co.uk
My first session
In our initial sesssion together I will listen to you to understand the challenges and struggles you are facing. It will be an opportunity for us to get to know one another and informally assess your situation. I will definitely not be judging or giving advice. We will talk briefly about confidentiality and answer any questions you might have. At the end of the session you can decide whether you feel comfortable with me and whether further sessions will be helpful for you. You are always in charge!
