Hello my name is Suzanne Houston I am a counsellor working in private practice. My aim is to offer you a confidential therapeutic service, where you can talk through concerns in a calm environment that is non judgemental, caring, confidential and respectful.
I am a qualified counsellor who has worked in the social care and education sector for several years. I have lots of experience working with families , children and young people, I worked as a school counsellor in secondary and primary schools for many years. I have also worked as a counsellor for Relate and other charities working with children, young people , couples, adults and families. I have a BSc (Hons) in Integrative and Humanistic Counselling and Psychotherapy and I trained at the Sherwood Institute of Counselling and Psychotherapy in Nottingham. I have retained a Post Graduate Certificate in Family Therapy and Systemic Practice accredited through AFT. My philosophy is not to give advice or tell you what to do, but to offer autonomy and choice, helping you to find the solution that bests suits you. I believe that it is our working relationship that is most important in helping you work through what has brought you to counselling. I am committed and passionate about offering a secure and accepting space for you to explore your feelings without judgement.
I am a registered therapist accredited with the BACP.
I work with adults, couples, families, young people and children .
