Susan Kelly
Counsellor and Business owner

Why choose me? You have so many counsellors to choose from - I cannot promise that I can solve everything in your life, but I can help you to see it differently. I promise I will give you empathy, warmth and genuinely care for you. Clients have always returned for second and subsequent sessions; I think this shows that they are comfortable working with me. I suggest that you try a session and If I am not right for you, that is OK. 23 years as a Science teacher and Pastoral leader working with teenagers and their parents daily, as well as other staff members helped develop my listening skills and broaden my life experiences and listening became a big part of my role . I am a people person and hope that you will find it as easy to talk to me as so many people have before you. I have non- epileptic seizures, but I have never had one with a client, I think because I concentrate fully on you. I love singing, crochet, being a Wife, Mum and Grandma. I have travelled extensively and have recently discovered the joys of owning a Motorhome.
