About Susy

I completed my counselling training (Professional Diploma in Integrative Counselling) in 2011 at the University of the West of England, which is fully accredited by the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP). This means my qualifications have been verified, I am held accountable for my work, and I abide by a professional Code of Ethics. Membership also requires I be fully insured, receive ongoing supervision, and commit to a continuing education within my field. I hold a post-qualifying diploma in counselling children and young people (AQA, 2015) and am a Certified Practitioner of Neuro-linguistic Programming (NLP) and Timeline Therapy (2017). Most recently in 2018, I became an iPEC trained Energy Leadership Coach (CPC) which has led me to take more of a progressive and dynamic approach to therapy.

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.
