About Susan Hartley
SimplyCounselling is here to help you when life brings challenges and obstacles that stop you from living your life the way you want to.
As registered counsellor I work with adults who may feel stuck when facing difficulties and obstacles that challenge living life in a healthy and fulfilled way.
My approach as a therapist is Integrative. This draws upon theories and skills that are best suited to each client’s needs by recognising each individual as unique.
Practising in Stratford upon Avon I see adults who are seeking change. I love my work and I never cease to be amazed at human strength, compassion, humility and the capacity for positive change.
My training, work experience and any achievement
With extensive knowledge and experience in the corporate world, I established a successful workplace counselling service. I also worked as a Director and Supervisor at a large charitable organisation in the city of Birmingham providing services on a voluntary basis.
As an accredited member of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP), I abide by the Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy (2010).
