Welcome to London East Counselling
“Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate” (Carl Jung)
My name is Sue Goode and when you are ready to help yourself, I am here to work with you on taking those important and difficult first steps towards your desired outcome. We can do this together whether its a behavioural change you are looking to work on, relationships, processing loss or just trying to figure yourself out.
I work intuitively, psycho- educationally, and am fairly straight talking. I often work looking at the deeper picture therefore really helping you to access reasons behind behaviours and develop your authentic self, rather than living with an adapted version that’s often likely to make you feel miserable, stressed and unfulfilled. Whilst acknowledging the importance of the protective ways of being from past necessity, these ways are often outmoded and not helpful now. After all, you want something to change and usually, it is ourselves who have to do the shifting! Come and learn some new ways of relating and being that will serve you better now.
I have a humanistic and holistic approach and acknowledge the importance of the whole person – mind, emotions, body, and spirit. The inner child as well as the adult. I integrate and combine different theories and models which I aim to tailor to best suit you and your needs.
I see it, that although we are complex beings, we only tend to develop difficulties, illness, or destructive habits e.g. such as anxiety, addictions, or depression when our innate human needs were not met in the past and are not met now through our current situation or lifestyle. I work with helping you identify which needs are not being met sufficiently and find ways to address these.
I am an experienced, qualified, and Accredited counsellor with a Diploma in Integrative Counselling. I am registered with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and UKRCP. I am also a qualified supervisor with a dip in Integrative supervision for counsellors and those in helping professions.
I work as an affiliate with many employee assistance programmes and am experienced at short term solution focused work and longer term counselling and psychotherapy for more long standing or deeper issues.
I work to the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy code of ethics and framework for good practice (www.bacp.co.uk/ethical_framework) and follow its rules relating to confidentiality.
As required by the BACP, I am in regular supervision and follow an ongoing programme of continued professional development.
The sessions will be confidential and focused on you and your needs. You can expect to be listened to without being judged, shown respect and empathy. The sessions last for 50 minutes. The number of sessions will be negotiated in the beginning and reviewed during the work to meet your needs.
I frequently use creative ways of working with you e.g. art, imagery, visualisations, two chair work, metaphor, and relaxation techniques. Each individual is just that, individually unique and no matter what label(s) you have been given previously, I am interested in you as a human being.
