Hi my name is Suzanne and I am a fully qualified integrative counsellor, working within the NHS, private sector and private practice for a number of years. I use a variety of counselling approaches, including CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy), to suit each of my clients’ needs, but most importantly I believe in offering warmth and understanding and place a good deal of emphasis on developing a trusting relationship with my clients.
We all find ourselves facing difficult situations at various times in our lives and sometimes having someone to listen can be all we need. I offer a safe and confidential environment for my clients to discover and explore options, choices and ways of coping with life. My job is to come alongside my clients as they face challenges and find resolutions or simply peace.
My areas of experience include:
Anger Management, Depression, Anxiety, Generalised Anxiety Disorder (GAD), Stress in the workplace, Panic Disorder, Phobias, Low Self-esteem and Assertiveness issues, Diagnosis of Illness, Pre-bereavement, Bereavement, Complicated Grief, Spirituality issues and Well-being.
So are you struggling with anxiety, stress at work, feeling low or cannot find your purpose or meaning in life? Or is life just too overwhelming and you find yourself sailing in stormy waters? Or have you lost a loved one and are trying to deal with grief or experiencing other types of loss such as redundancy? If the answer is yes to any of these questions or you have other concerns you would like to discuss, then perhaps counselling is for you and perhaps I can help.
Availability: I work in Birmingham on Tuesdays and Thursdays and in Tamworth on other days of the week.
Fees: Individuals £40 per hourly session. Student concessions also available. Couples counselling £50 per hour.
