Suzi Lauder


SUZI1-290x300Hello, my name is Suzi Lauder, I am a therapist with many years experience working in private practice in Stratford-upon-Avon, Alcester & Bidford upon Avon. I offer Counselling and Psychotherapy using Transactional Analysis (TA) primarily.  This is a powerful and effective therapeutic approach which is widely used by psychotherapists and counsellors to resolve areas within your life where you may be experiencing difficulties. I also have a special interest in using music and voice, and have over 20 years experience in this area.

Some people use the words counselling and psychotherapy interchangeably but for me counselling is usually best suited for those seeking solutions to current problems, psychotherapy on the other hand is generally more helpful to individuals seeking personal development or who have experienced deep seated or lifelong struggles. I use the term therapy to embrace counselling, psychotherapy and personal development work.

We all have the right to be heard and we all have the power to change. 

I offer an informal and FREE initial meeting where together we will decide and both agree how to proceed, and what the focus our work will be. Our work is strictly confidential and you will be listened to without judgment and with respect. You will be supported and valued for your uniqueness and worth and it is my intention to help you gain a deeper awareness of yourself, and to challenge limiting beliefs or unhelpful behaviours you  may have that prevent you from living the life you want to live. I utilize all my skills and life experiences to help you make the changes you want to make.

I work within the professional ethical frame work bound by the BACP and  UKCP Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy.

I am a member of the following Professional Organisations:

United Kingdom Association for Transactional Analysis (UKATA)European Association for Transactional Analysis (EATA) International Transactional Analysis Association (ITAA) The Berne Institute Counselling & Psychotherapy & UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP )
