A warm welcome, a safe confidential space to explore any issues you choose. A contractual agreement between counsellor and client. A regular time slot and consistency with appointments.
I use various models of counselling dependent on the needs of the client including: Cognitive behavioural therapy, person centred counselling, integrative counselling, humanistic counselling, and Psychodynamic counselling.
Additional methods of use are the 12-step Minnesota model for abstinence from addiction and Motivational interviewing Techniques.

Testimonial from M B (client)
I always felt safe and held in the counselling space. She listened with her eyes and this was felt. I felt she understood everything I had gone through and could identify with my situation. She did not say this, but I felt it. I went through a difficult time during counselling because what I talked about was painful and hard, but I always felt safe and never felt judged. Susan is kind, warm and open. She is the best counsellor I ever had. M B.
