Welcome to my profile, known as Sue, (she/her) in my Private Practice I work with young adults (18+), older adults, seniors and organisations. 

I offer sessions Thursday and Friday, whilst flexible to suit your needs, give me a call to discuss.

My fee is at a price point to reflect upon and facilitate people from all walks of life to access support.  

I offer telephone and Online video calls,  (in-person therapy will resume once it is safe to do so).

An experienced professional counsellor deploying 7 C's of Compassion, Curiosity, Creativity, Clarity, Commitment, Connection and Choice to support your healing, growth and development.  I work within the well thought out BACP ethical framework because this fits my own values, principle and professional ethics. 

About me and my therapy practice

I deliver support through an Integrative style of therapy. This means my experience informs me 'one size doesn't fit all' I recognise and understand as a Human Being we are not mono-minded but multifaceted, multi-dimensional and complex individuals. Utilising concepts from Person-Centred, CBT, Bereavement, Trauma & Strength based theory and philosophies, for example.

Our work together may explore any dimension or parts of self you may wish to bring, I am led by you and your needs, recognising and understand as Aristotle said, "the whole is greater than the sum of its parts,”. Our work together is seen as two persons meeting, facilitating your healing and growth, at your pace.

My experience within counselling has been gained over 18 years, within various counselling settings including Private Practice, Cruse Bereavement Care, Victim Support, Alcohol Services, Family Centre and Hospice Care.

Supporting individuals and families experiencing a wide variety of mental and emotional conditions which cause concern.

Currently employed and for over 5 years, three days a week, in a Hospice, within a specialist trauma & bereavement Counselling Service, supporting families experiencing and going through the toughest of times imaginable and unimageable. Supporting through anxieties, life-limiting and life-shortening illnesses, palliative care, end of life (EOL) and complex bereavement process which follows the death of a precious loved one.

I offer you experienced, compassionate and professional counselling support, give me a call today.

Practice description

My focus is on you and supporting you to feel better, utilising and integrating 18 years of experience, skills, and knowledge. Working collaboratively to explore what you need here and now, to support your healing.

I offer you a grounded presence of safety, listen and hear you, offering time and attention within an empathic, and confidential environment. A space to support you to untangle, understand and discover aspects of yourself that perhaps you haven’t noticed and put to good use before. This will lead to you making informed choices and taking mindful action, whilst shifting and mastering your emotions, so they are not the master of you.

This may feel daunting as you read, typing I reflect upon the words of Lao Tzu, the Chinese philosopher who said, “A journey of a thousand miles began with the first step", and here you are, already taking your first step.

My mission is to foster personal and professional growth and development.

My principal aim is empowering you to regain and maintain balance in your mental and emotional worlds, long after therapy has ended.

Supporting you to create informed choices and decisions for your overall well-being, creating connections, peace of mind and resourceful living.

A trauma informed and experienced counsellor, trauma leaves us feeling like a castaway, treading water or a sense of being thrown around in a tsunami or erupting volcano, creating anxieties. I will offer you ‘tools’ to aid your healing,  together we will find your direction to peaceful shores. Where you can make sense of, heal, into post traumatic growth and into the person you choose to be, from this day forward.

Take your second step today by contacting me and start your personal journey to a more fulfilling life.

My first session

How to choose a counsellor who is 'right' for you may seem like a minefield. This is natural and normal. 

People have many concerns which bring them into counselling and indeed it takes courage to acknowledge and strength to seek support from another. Especially someone you've not met before, yet the results are both rewarding and life enriching.   

Our first session is for us both to evaluate if we are a 'good fit' to work together collaboratively.  please contact me to discuss your needs.

Please feel free to ask as many questions as you need

About me and my therapy practice

Hello and welcome I offer Telephone, On-Line  and In-person supervision.

Offering time and space dedicated to you and your work as a practitioner.  

My fee is £60 for 90 minute sessions - concessions for students and volunteers. 

My aim is to create a safe place in which you feel held and grounded in your work, where you feel free to talk about all aspects of your work.

My purpose is to enable you to be supported so you are not left alone to carry or struggle with the impact from hearing clients narratives. 

My experience is human beings are not mono-minded but multifaceted, complex beings.  We have parts that are healthy, parts that need more nurturance and parts that are happy and content. The self being the harmonising and organising central part and the sum of the whole Being.

We will work collaboratively with creativity exploring ideas outside the box as we investigate the relationship between our mind, body, and spiritual aspects of being human.  In relation  to your client work.

My work is informed by 17 years supervising experience with, CPCAB and Degree students at all levels, volunteers, and professional practitioners and those working within an emotionally charge environment e.g. carers, nurses, doctors.

Within a variety of setting and environments e.g. schools, bereavement, hospice, domestic violence, sexually abuse agencies, addiction services, victim support.  To general counselling with clients presenting anxieties, depression, loss, illness, low self-esteem and colleague in private practice.

Working via telephone, Video call and face to face.


Practice description

Supervision is essential my focus is on all dimensions of your work and care for you as the carer and holder of others and to support you to maintain effective, sustainable practice.  Supervision is a safe, rich source of support, learning, reflection, time to mull over, review, compassionately evaluate, question, explore new pathways.  Gain a different perspective, a space for you to breath, take stock, hear self, understand, grow and develop.

Time and space is dedicated to you and your client work, I provide a space for you to celebrate your achievements, gain affirmation for your work. Whilst gently stretching and challenging appropriately so you can reflect upon all aspects of your counselling work and grow and develop within you practice.

As a supervisor my strengths sit in my compassionate intradependent way of Being, genuine openness, receptivity to change and curiosity, offer flexibility to work with and stay with the unknown. My creativity facilitates strategies, new perspectives and renewed energies, enhancing well-being and capabilities. Flexible and adaptable within the immediacy of our supportive sessions.

I own a competent knowledge of theories ranging from Humanistic, psychodynamic, Jungian, Cognitive and Behavioural, Existential, Logotherapy, Person-Centred and Transactional Analysis. 

Demonstrated in an Integrative style of support and how interpersonal dynamics are played out in relationships. Theory is one of the cornerstones and underpins all our counselling work along with ethics and the law.  Bringing responsibility, accountability, structure, and motivation. Passion and caring about the work we offer to others seeking alleviation of suffering

I am interested in listening and hearing who you are as a counselling practitioner within a relationship where you will be received with equality, respect and valued as a person of worth. 

My first session

Meeting you where you are in your work, when we first meet I often say to supervisees I believe there is no right or wrong way to counsel ….. there is only ethical v unethical, lawful v unlawful and healthy v unhealthy ways to be in our work. Our focus in supervision will be on the fundamental ways which shape and inform our work as an ethical, lawful, and healthy robust practitioner. A counsellor who makes a difference to the clients they serve. 


If you would like to have a chat or a 30 minute Zoom call to see if we are a good fit to develop a therapeutic alliance, please contact me to arrange.

Warmest of regards 

Sue
