Suzi Mackenzie

Primary Location
Secondary Location

I am committed to understanding how life is from the client’s point of view and to providing a safe, equal space for you to express and explore your difficulties. Through us trying to understand together the feelings and issues you’re facing, you can get more clarity about what you need and what might help. Having space to talk freely, without judgement, can be helpful in itself: I have a genuine interest in the bredth and depth of human experience, so will listen sensitively and attentively. I know that it can be hard to come for counselling and to face difficult issues, so I will work to help you feel comfortable and we will go at your pace. Sometimes in life we feel we know there is something wrong but don’t quite know what it is, or we know what it is but feel we are stuck with an issue. Counselling can help us to sense into these issues in a different way and to access the inner wisdom that we have, if only we can listen to it. I have a keen interest in mental health and am committed to seeing the person, not just a diagnosis. I am also passionate about diversity and working in a non discriminatory way.
