About Susy

I graduated from the University of the West of England in 2011 with a Professional Diploma in Integrative Counselling (2011). This course is BACP accredited, which means my qualifications have been verified, I am held accountable for my work, and I abide by a professional Code of Ethics. BACP Membership also requires that I be fully insured, receive ongoing supervision, and commit to a continuing education within my field. In 2015 I completed a post-qualifying Diploma in Counselling Children and Young People (AQA) and in 2017, became a Certified Practitioner of Neuro-linguistic Programming (NLP) and Timeline Therapy. My most recent training has been to graduate from iPEC as a Certified Professional Coach (CPC) and ELI Master Practitioner (ELI-MP) which has naturally created a more progressive and dynamic approach to therapy. I believe that as long as my clients are engaged and committed to making positive changes in their lives, there is no reason why the work can’t be done quickly.

I currently run a private practice in Central Bristol, and have provided short term telephone counselling for Employee Assistance Programme (EAP) providers throughout the UK. I have also worked as a School Counsellor for 11 to 18 year olds, and owned and operated two counselling practices in Victoria, Canada: a mobile service providing accessible and affordable counselling for women on lower incomes, and an office based service providing counselling to men, women and young people.

During  my training, I worked for the national mental health charity, Mind, offering face-to-face and telephone counselling to men and women in Bristol, where I received further training in art therapy, anger management, autism spectrum disorders, mental health, personality disorders, suicide prevention, self-harm, cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), mindfulness and transactional analysis (TA). I have also volunteered for Mindline, a free, confidential and non-judgemental telephone helpline service for men, women and youth in crisis.
