About me and my therapy practice

Llanelli Counselling Service is managed by qualified counsellor & psychotherapist Susi De Lacey MBACP(Reg.,); MASSIP; Dip.IIP; LLB

Is anxiety, depression, panic attacks, insomnia, painful memories,  work related stress or fear of redundancy affecting your life? Maybe you've someone close to you has died or is seriously ill? Perhaps you are struggling with caring responsibilities?

Due to the Coronavirus outbreak clients  cannot access my counselling room at present, instead we use telephone counselling on online via Skype or Zoom. 

We use creative techniques based on CBT and Adlerian Theory which help overcome the issues and develop clients' self-encouragement and motivation. We look at how their position within their birth family, early recollections and perceptions growing up have affected their view of the world, coping strategies and patterns of behaviour in adulthood. This understanding helps them find better ways of dealing with difficult situations, feel stronger and healthier again.

I offer a FREE no obligation half hour initial telephone consultation, then weekly or fortnightly sessions from Mondays  to Thursdays  for £40 per 50 minute session. These don’t need to be the same slot each week. I currently offer £5 off counselling students' sessions.

PLEASE NOTE- I DO NOT PROVIDE COUNSELLING TO ANYONE UNDER 21 OR COUPLES, NOR THOSE WITH DRUG OR ALCOHOL ADDICTION

To book a free consultation please telephone 01554701755 or text 07476555338 or email Llanellicounselling@yahoo.com. Please leave a message if I am unavailable.

IN LINE WITH THE GDPR YOUR DETAILS WILL BE SECURELY STORED, AND NOT SHARED WITH ANYONE UNLESS I BELIEVE YOU ARE AT IMMEDIATE RISK OF HARMING YOURSELF OR SOMEONE ELSE.


Practice description

After a career in law, I spent many years helping people with mental health issues access support. I retrained as a counsellor to support people who feel overwhelmed, anxious or depressed trying to cope with life's challenges. Before starting Llanelli Counselling Service, I was a counsellor in a GP Surgery, also for the NHS Bereavement Service. I usually offer one to one sessions in my consulting room, however due to the coronavirus outbreak all my counselling services are now provided by telephone or online via Zoom or Skype

My first session

I provide a half hour FREE no obligation telephone session in order that clients can briefly discuss their issues, I explain how I work, and carry out a basic assessment so we can both decide if I am the right person to work with you. If so, we then find a mutually convenient date and time to start working together on whatever you wish to discuss. Until the Coronavirus is over, for your safety and my own this has to be via telephone, Zoom or Skype. I also explain how my easy to access payment system works. 

I do not provide counselling for anyone under 21, couples nor those with drug or alcohol issues. If I feel I am not the best person to see you, or if I am unable to take on more clients, I will recommend other counsellors who maybe able to assist.

About me and my therapy practice

Over the past ten years of working in mental health I have supported numerous clients struggling with hoarding disorder or chronically disorganised homes. As a result I have developed my two hour CPD "Small Steps Hoarding Awareness Workshops for professionals." I deliver this training across Wales to numerous local authorities, Social Workers, Environmental Officers, Housing Associations, Emergency Service personnel, counsellors and support workers. Over 120 people have attended so far and the  feedback has been excellent. Please note this training is not aimed at service users but at professionals wishing to understand the causes, issues and to gain new skills when working with such clients or interested in this topic.This is available both as in house training or full details of future events and tickets which cost £30 per person are available on Eventbrite or by emailing me for the link or for a quote for in-house training.  

What I can help with

Anxiety, Bereavement, Depression, Loss, Personal development
