When you’re feeling overwhelmed or stuck by life events choosing the right counsellor may seem a little daunting. Clients turn to counselling for an array of reasons; each of us having our own personal journey and unique story. Whether you have had therapy previously or this is your first time, I aim to make your counselling experience as comfortable as possible.
I began my counselling career 10 years ago working for Mind with clients who were in crisis and experiencing emotional distress. I have since worked in GP practices around County Durham with patients experiencing:
As well as my Private Practice I work for several Universities and an Eating Distress Charity covering the North East.
My fee is on a sliding scale offering reduced rates for block bookings, those receiving benefits, on low income and students. Please contact me for further information where we can arrange an initial appointment either face to face or by telephone.
“Sue is one of the most remarkably kind people I’ve ever met. The way she talks to you in sessions makes you feel heard and understood at times when no one else is able to help. Sue taught me so much about how to deal with my mental health issues but above all she helped me to understand that my feelings are valid and that I am valuable. She acted as a base from which I could build strong foundations which has helped me to achieve so much. I cannot recommend her enough. I know I wouldn’t be where I am today without her help.”
“You have made such a big difference to me and my family, especially my daughter. You helped me see everyone is not as perfect as they may seem and as long as you know you are doing your best at who you are and what you believe in; you’re doing great.”
“When I first met you; I felt utterly hopeless. Sue, you have gone above and beyond, you’ve helped me through one of the darkest periods of my life. I will never forget you. I can’t thank you enough for your support.”
“Thank you for all your help over the past few weeks. You have helped me put things into perspective and turn my life around. I used to feel like a scabby old caterpillar but now I feel like a beautiful, bright butterfly! No words can sum up how grateful I am to you.”
