Winter session times for 2020 now on the Availability Page.
Welcome! I am Su Wallace, a Relate trained and qualified counsellor for couples, individuals and families. My counselling practice is in central Wakefield with easy access from Dewsbury, Leeds, Pontefract, Selby, Barnsley, Doncaster and Sheffield.
I am a counsellor for couples, individuals and families, and work over short or longer term agreements. My clients are generally from Wakefield, Leeds, Dewsbury, Huddersfield, Pontefract , Doncaster, and across the Five Towns Region, with some travelling from further afield.
I offer one hour sessions, which can be weekly, fortnightly or longer where holidays intervene. Face to face sessions can be interspersed with Zoom webcam where convenient to clients (45 minutes generally), and this makes 'conference' meetings possible where partners travel on business. Subject to time zones and contractual legalities, I can also work with clients when they are outside of the UK.
I work with clients in goal oriented way to find their own solutions to the problematic events and 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.
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. Generally, clients attend on a fortnightly basis. Weekly appointments are available for those who have the time and are looking to work hard and fast on their changes. Intensive therapy is available for those able to attend six times within a month in the daytime.
As a counsellor I work from an ethical basis and confidentiality is paramount to ensuring that we have a good therapeutic connection.
This ethical base extends to taking regular clinical supervision to ensure my practice as a counsellor meets and exceeds the professional standards required.
In my longer term work, deeper issues can be worked with in a more psychotherapeutic model.
Appointments are paid for on booking , and clients are welcome to book a block of sessions if they require me to hold specific times/days for themselves only. I use PayPal as it is secure, quick and easy. You will find PayPal 'buy now' buttons on my Fees page - please confirm a session with me before sending money!
I operate a 48 hour cancellation policy.
Coming soon - online payments via banking rather than PayPal, I'm working on it.......
I am Relate trained and qualified, to Masters level
I am located at Flexspace Business Centre, Denby Dale Road, Wakefield, WF2 7AS. There is free on-site parking and road side parking. The reception is staffed in the daytime, and there is a relaxing area where clients may wait for their appointment during daytimes.
Should the receptionist not be at the desk when you arrive, just phone me, I will come and let you in if I am not with clients.
It is not possible to 'drop in' without an appointment and the reception staff cannot book sessions or collect fees for sessions as they are Flexspace staff, not mine, They are also not trained as a counsellor so cannot hear your troubles conversationally.
Denby Dale Road is easily accessed from the M1 at Jnc 39 Wakefield, the A638 Dewsbury Road via Thornes Wharf and the A61 from Leeds and Wakefield.
My hours and days of work can be found on the 'availability' page, if your lifestyle doesn't fit these times, please give me a call to discuss possibilities.
