About me and my therapy practice

Hi, I'm Susie. I offer relational therapy and coaching because I believe that relationships are really important. We encounter lots of different relationships over the course of our lives: friends, siblings, parents, bosses, co-workers…and then there’s the relationship we have with ourselves. 

In my experience, people come to counselling and coaching to improve their relationships, which in turn improves their quality of life.

As an experienced compassionate coach, I can help you with both tactical and strategic career goals: from preparing for an interview or presentation, to planning for promotion or career transition.  

During my time with Google, I coached and mentored both startups and individuals.  In particular, my focus was on helping female founders.

As an experienced psychotherapist, I offer talking therapy and trauma informed therapy to individuals.  I also work with couples. Following my Diploma, I trained and worked with Rape Crisis, where I worked with survivors of both sexual and domestic abuse. Since leaving Rape Crisis, I have undertaken additional training in a number of trauma informed approaches including Internal Family Systems Therapy, and EMDR. 

Practice description

I offer long term psychotherapy, as well as short term counselling on a one to one basis.  I also work with couples.

My approach to talking therapy is integrative, which means that I draw on a number of psychological theories and approaches including: existentialism, solution focused brief therapy, transactional analysis and person centred.

I also offer trauma informed therapy. I am a qualified EMDR practitioner, and have experience of working with a number of trauma informed approaches. I often integrate EMDR sessions with talking therapy using an internal family systems approach to make sense of your relationships.

With couples, my foundation is emotionally focused. This approach facilitates the deeper understanding of you, your partner and your relationship. Ultimately, it is not the role of the therapist to help you make decisions, but to provide space for you to come to your own.

My coaching approach is largely strengths based, however I am a firm believer in working flexibly and adaptively with my clients. What’s important is that we focus together on what you want out of your business relationships, and how to empower you to execute on these goals. 

I work integratively with clients across all of my services, and  often use what are traditionally considered psychotherapy techniques - such as EMDR - in my coaching practice.

Feminist principles inform all of my services, and many of my clients are in the LGBTQ+ community.

My first session

In our first session, we will review the counselling/coaching contract and explore and agree therapy/coaching goals and outcomes.  

For therapy sessions, I am fully trained in clinical assessment and will bring this experience to our first 1-3 sessions to ensure that I understand any contextual information that is relevant to our work together.

We can agree a fixed or open timescale for our work, as well as the frequency of our sessions.

Coaching sessions from £100 per 60m session

Trauma informed therapy (EMDR)  £65 per 50m session

Couples therapy sessions £75 per 50m session
