Sue Stephens MSc, HCPC, MBACP (Accred.) 07771 537199

  • Sometimes coping  with life can become difficult because situations can lead us along a difficult pathway, sometimes into crisis. We may find it hard to understand our own behaviours, thoughts and emotions, as well as those of others. Coping may not be easy and it may be difficult to talk over issues with family and friends. I can help you find solutions that will help you deal with situations, which will empower you,  leading to improvement in your emotional and psychological wellbeing. I combine a variety of talking and creative techniques to support people with a range of issues, face to face, online, via video or telephone therapy.

I was a senior practitioner within clinical NHS and voluntary mental health and addiction services prior to becoming a consultant at the national charity DrugScope. I combine my clinical background with intuitive sense, empathy and a deep perception of client need.

I work with people of all ages and I specialise in working with children from age 5+ and young people, aged 14-18 years. I am an HCPC registered Art Therapist (AS16514) and a Level 5 CPCAB Children's counsellor. I am enhanced  DBS checked.

I am able to offer online support to people whose lives have been affected by COVID19.
