About Me

I’m Susie, an experienced, warm and qualified Psychodynamic Counsellor and an EMDR Therapist in St Albans, Hertfordshire, offering you a safe, confidential space to think and feel, and for us to explore your challenges together.

My approach is mainly psychodynamic which means that I will work with you to help you make links between your present difficulties and past experiences. We’ll work together to make sense of your feelings and challenges, help you achieve insight and understanding, and in turn facilitate positive change, self-awareness and a capacity to cope with present and future difficulties. I also offer and integrate EMDR (Eye Movement Densensitisation and Reprocessing) which is an effective treatment used mostly in treating trauma, however is also effectively used for the treatment of other issues such as anxiety, phobias, addiction and grief.

Alongside my Private Practice, I am the Diploma Programme Tutor at The Counselling Foundation, responsible for the implementation of the Diploma Course to Trainee Counsellors.

I’m an Accredited Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and work to their Code of Ethics and Standards of Good Practice. Im also a member of the EMDR Associated UK. I hold full professional indemnity insurance and an enhanced DBS check.
