Susie Bates - Counsellor
Hello, I am Susie, a qualified counsellor offering affordable therapy in Carmarthen and Cardigan. My approach to counselling is person centred providing the opportunity for you to be listened to and supported.
My focus is on building a warm and empathetic relationship with you, to hold space for you to explore whatever has brought you to seek counselling. We all have struggles in our lives, these may be present day problems or issues from your past that are causing you distress or leaving you feeling stuck. Together we can explore these difficulties and look at ways to move forward in your life which best suit you as an individual. We will work at your own pace in a way which feels safe and appropriate for you.
I have gained experience of working with a number of issues including anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, trauma, childhood abuse and relationship difficulties. I have worked with West Wales Domestic Abuse Service and continue to volunteer with Carmarthenshire Counselling Service.
I offer both short and long term counselling, we can decide which suits you best when we meet. The first session can be an opportunity to meet and for you decide if I am the right person for you to work with. Please feel free to contact me.
I am a Member of British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy and work to their ethical guidelines.
