About Me

Hi, my name is Suzanne, I am an experienced and fully qualified integrative counsellor.

I offer face to face, online and telephone counselling in Berkhamsted and Hemel Hempstead easily accessible from the surrounding towns and villages.

Feeling overwhelmed or stressed? Finding it hard to share difficult emotions with loved ones but need to talk? The world can sometimes feel challenging and hard to navigate.

Imagine having someone by your side who's dedicated to helping you untangle those knots in your mind. Someone who can provide a safe space for you to explore your emotions and work through them at your own pace.

My work has given me a wide variety of experience and a varied and complex set of emotional issues to work through with my clients, such as depression, anxiety, anger, low self-esteem, bereavement, illness, abuse, and trauma.

I truly believe in the positive effects counselling and talking therapies can make on one’s life. Through my personal experience of counselling, I was inspired to shift careers and have dedicated myself to extensive training and attained various counselling qualifications, including the BACP approved Diploma in Integrative Therapeutic Counselling which allows me to work with both children and adults. Currently, I am extending my knowledge by studying for a BSc (Hons) degree in Therapeutic Counselling.

In addition to my private practice, I work as a Palliative Care and Bereavement Counsellor in a Hospice with extensive experience of grief, loss and illness; I also work as a school counsellor in a secondary school. Previously, I worked in a pupil referral unit, offering counselling to parents whose children were unable to attend mainstream school and I have also volunteered at a women’s centre, offering counselling to women facing various challenges in their lives. I have a broad experience of working with young people and adults and tailor each session to the specific needs of the individual.

My training and experience have covered a range of areas including bereavement, palliative illness, anxiety, trauma, self-harm, relationship problems, divorce, mindfulness, domestic violence, and identity issues. My personal and professional experiences have moulded me, providing insight into life's challenges. I hold values of fairness, diversity, and equality, treating everyone equally regardless of their background, culture, or gender.


I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and abide by their code of ethics. As an integrative counsellor my approach combines Person-Centered, Psychodynamic, Attachment, Relational, CBT, Transactional Analysis, and Gestalt therapy.

Integrating these approaches help explore and understand how these difficult feelings have been shaped by past experiences and relationships. Thoughts and behaviours can be looked at to increase self-awareness and confidence by looking at how we communicate with others. I adapt my approach to suit the needs of each client, providing a safe and compassionate environment where we can explore any challenges and difficulties which you may be facing. My role is to help clients find clarity and inner peace.
