Hello. My name is Susan Light and I am a qualified counsellor, psychotherapist, consultant and trainer. I am qualified in a number of different therapy techniques that allow me to work with a great variety of people with countless different issues.
In the 16 years I have worked as a counsellor I have encountered such a rich variety of clients as to make my work both very interesting and extremely rewarding. For example, I have worked with people who have been in a serious accident, been bereaved, witnessed a traumatic event or been abused; those going through a relationship breakdown or suffering from workplace stress; people with drug, alcohol or other addictions; people who are seriously ill, or are caring for a loved one who is ill.
But I donít just work with people with problems. Lots of people work with counsellors because there is something they want to achieve, and something within them stopping them from doing it. From simply wanting the confidence to holiday alone to wanting to win the World Championships or build a business empire, I help people achieve their dreams.
In my work I use a wide variety of different counselling and psychotherapy techniques, but I prefer not baffle my clients with jargon. At the end of the day, I find that clients arenít really bothered whether I use therapy A or technique B, they just want to know that I can help them. And I can.
Clients come to me privately or through referrals from Employee Assistance Programmes and occupational health agencies, insurance companies, employers, solicitors and the commissioning services of the NHS. All receive the same high standards of professionalism, confidentiality and care.
