Growing Space Counselling is home to a team of practitioners who offer an inspiring array of complementary skills and expertise to support you through periods of challenge, change and/or development.

Susanne Barthelmes - Counsellor, MBACP

I am the founder of ‘The Growing Space’ and a BACP registered counsellor and therapist. I am also a professional member of ACTO, the association for online counsellors and therapists and ICO registered. I can support you in a range of presenting issues including traumatic experiences, separation, bereavement, illness, relationship problems, sexuality, identity, work-related issues and other profound life challenges. I have a special interest in depression and anxiety and can help you find healthy ways of coping and improving things.

As a person-centred, integrative counsellor, I use a range of tools and approaches (including CBT) to adapt to your individual needs. I offer face-to-face, online and telephone counselling for both short-term and long term work. We will decide together what approach best suits you; day-time and evening appointments available.

Counselling sessions (50 mins) cost £55. Initial 30 mins 'getting-to-know' session availabable.
