Location: Braintree

My Name is Suzanne, I practice Person-Centred & Integrative approaches, working with Clients past, present and future.
I have a private practice in Braintree Essex which offers clients a private calm and safe environment which is so often needed. I have had experience working with both Adults and Children. I am also on the Counselling Panel for the charity Mid and North East Essex MIND and have helped with online safeguarding university students as a co-Ordinator for the Chat with Charlie foundation.
No-one should have to face mental health alone. I am here to help, I am non-judgemental, congruent and a supportive therapist. I believe in building trusting relationships with my clients. I will listen empathically.
