About me and my therapy practice
Hi, I'm Suzanne and I am a fully qualified and accredited integrative counsellor with over 10 years of experience supporting both adults and children. My approach to therapy and counselling has its roots in a rich variety of approaches to human development and relationship.
At present, I work in private practice with adults and children either virtually or by phone due to the pandemic but hopefully when it is safe to do so will offer face-to-face counselling again.
Along with my private practice I work in the educational setting offering counselling in schools with special needs and mainstream children and work from the standpoint that no one approach can describe the complex nature of who we are and who we can become.
As a counsellor, I can offer time-limited therapy or an open-ended contract.
Therapeutic work involves listening, understanding, exploration, and support. This can help, to reflect on your experience, and working together to unravel thoughts and feelings that can cause you to feel stuck, confused, distressed, or disturbed. It can also be a place for looking at immediate issues in a new light, but above all, I can provide a unique space in which you can share your innermost issues in an environment that is safe and supportive but above all confidential.
With my experience of working with children and young people for many years, I work creatively through imaginative play and art as this approach enables me to see and reach within a child’s inner emotional world which in turn can then enable the child to use self-expression, both physically and emotionally to explore life events that may have had an effect on current circumstances.
I feel very humbled and privileged to be able to offer a safe, confidential counselling service to children and young people within which they can explore their true feelings to provide a solid platform upon which to build a positive future.
My first session
Please call me on 07926719329 If you would like to make an appointment for a free 15-minute telephone conversation to see if counselling is for you.
If you then feel that you would like to continue, you would then book an assessment where I would take some history from you about the current issues you're facing and what you feel you would like to achive from therapy. This session also gives you the opportunity to have a feel for the way I work in counselling and discuss how you would like to progress and more forward.
