Hello and welcome.
I am a fully-qualified person-centred counsellor and therapist and most people call me Suse.   In layman’s terms, being a person-centred counsellor means that I believe that every individual has the knowledge and the tools inside themselves that they require to heal, grow and change.  In my counselling practice, I don’t analyse or tell people what to do, but through their counselling, individuals are able to work through any issues or difficulties which they might be experiencing and find their own way forward.

Originally from Scotland, I moved down to Cornwall in 2008, and whilst I haven’t picked up the Cornish accent, I have certainly developed a huge affection for this beautiful place and its people.  

I commenced my counselling training in 2009 and have been qualified since 2012 (in my previous life I was an accountant – proof positive that big changes are possible in life).  In addition to a Diploma in Person-Centred Counselling and Therapy, I have also received specialist training in Addictions, Bereavement and Domestic Abuse.  I became a convert to counselling in 2003, after getting some myself when suffering from Depression and Anxiety.  It kind of blew my mind, how much I learned about myself, and I am now a much happier, more settled and confident person than I was before.  I am very passionate about counselling, it’s definitely a vocation, and I love the work that I do. 

I have an easily-accessible, warm, comfortable counselling room situated at Foundry Farm in Hayle (very close to Jewsons and Asda), with parking facilities just outside.  I also see clients in my home in St Austell.  Please get in touch if you would like a free introductory consultation.
