Therapy and Counselling in Wakefield
"When we are no longer able to change a situation, we are challenged to change ourselves"
Viktor E Frankl, (1905-1997), Neurologist, Psychiatrist, Holocaust Survivor
Welcome! I am Su Wallace, my counselling practice is in central Wakefield with easy access from Dewsbury, Leeds, Pontefract, Selby, Barnsley, Doncaster and Sheffield.
I am located a short walk or ('Free City Bus' ride) from Westgate East Coast mainline station and the central bus station. I am five minutes drive from the M1 and ten minutes from the M62 interchange. There is free, on-site parking (with permit from reception), and a major supermarket across the street which offers two hours free parking, and has a café if you wish to gather your thoughts before or after your session.
I work with couples, individuals and families, over short or longer term work.
I seek to help clients understand the events and feelings that brought them to the feelings they have today and to move forward to a more user-friendly version of the future with less stress, more understanding and a sense of greater personal freedom and ability to choose.
Many people ask my position on working with the LGBTQI++ communities - I embrace all identities and orientations and am concerned to avoid binary labels, I prefer the term People. I am a late middle age cisgender woman.
I work from a position of the client being in control, I won't tell you to attend every week or for a certain number of sessions. We can talk together about what is appropriate for you.
Please see the 'Couples' or 'Individuals' page for further information.
Time for Transformation? Have a look at these pages and please call me if you need further information or to book a session.
Counselling for individuals
The most important relationship we ever have is the one with our own self. If we aren't 'worth it' or 'good enough' for ourselves, we have no self-love, how can we expect other people to love us deeply?
Feeling like we belong in our own skin, and our mind and body cooperate to keep us healthy, leaves space and time to achieve the things we want to in life.
So whether you want to explore your relationship patterns, resolve a hurt or expand your sense of self, individual counselling can help you to clarify your thoughts and feelings.
