Psychodynamic Counsellor

Sue is a psychodynamic counsellor and is experienced in working with adults with a wide range of issues.  She offers open ended counselling and works with people face to face on either a short or long term basis, depending on what they wish to achieve from the sessions.  As a psychodynamic counsellor, Sue will work with individuals to understand how past experiences link with current difficulties, allowing the exploration of feelings which are at the root of distressing symptoms such as anxiety and mood problems, which often lead people to seek counselling.  Sue also believes that counselling can be useful to people as a tool for self-awareness, even if they do not feel they have any particular problem or symptoms but perhaps have a sense of wanting to make changes in their life.  

In addition to her counselling work, Sue also works for a mental health charity, in partnership with an NHS Trust, working with people on diverse issues such as those around employment, housing, social isolation, long term conditions and poverty, helping empower them to develop the tools to manage the challenges they face in their day to day lives.  

Sue has worked in the voluntary sector for nearly 20 years, which has included delivering programmes supporting people with long term conditions and disabilities into education and employment opportunities and managing a social enterprise for people with mental health problems.  

She holds a Masters Degree (MA) in Psychodynamic Counselling and also a Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling and she is a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).
