Counsellingherts|Susan Freedman Counselling and Psychotherapy in Herts

- when life becomes overwhelming

Welcome to my website!

My name is Susan Freedman and  I have a private practice in Bushey, Hertfordshire, just a short distance from Watford.  I am an experienced counsellor and psychotherapist offering long or short term,  individual, face to face psychotherapy and counselling in Herts.


Sometimes we experience overwhelming feelings of sadness, anxiety, anger, guilt, emptiness or confusion which interfere with day to day life and prevent us from functioning at our best.


Sometimes we experience a life event that is difficult to cope with  or is overwhelming such as bereavement, serious illness, breakdown of a relationship,trauma, loss, work related issues, redundancy.  Is the uncertainty around Brexit causing additional stress or anxiety?


These are all issues that I have found counselling and psychotherapy to have been helpful.    I recognise that sometimes it is difficult to ask for help or you may be unsure about how effective counselling will be or whether it is right for you.   Please feel free to contact me by telephone or email should you have any queries and I will do my best to answer them.


How will therapy help?


I offer a confidential therapeutic space where we can explore together any difficulties or painful feelings you may be experiencing, whilst working at your own pace.  We can make sense of recurrent difficulties by making links to the past, think about unhelpful behaviours and thoughts and explore any options for change -  in an environment where you will not be judged and which is confidential.  By exploring your self and gaining insight and awareness you may be able to make sense out of the confusion and make positive changes.


If we decide to work together I will offer you regular once a week 50 minute sessions on the same day and at the same time each week.  This offers a sense of security and safety.



What clients have said:

"Thanks to you and your wonderful counselling ... things are so far so good. ... slowly but surely ... a big thank you to you once again for all you did for me.  You dont realise you've helped me so much on my journey to a better and happier life ... bless you Susan."
