About London East Counselling
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 therapy. We can do this together whether its a behavioural change you are looking to work on, relationships, processing loss or just trying to know and love yourself better.
I work intuitively an am fairly straight talking and often work at the heart of the issue therefore really helping you to access and develop your authentic self, rather than living with an adapted version that’s often likely to make you feel feel miserable stressed and unfulfilled. After all you want something to change and usually it is ourselves who have to do the shifting!
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 am an experienced, qualified and Accredited counsellor with a Diploma in Integrative Counselling. I am registered with British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and UKRCP. I am also 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 practice from EC2M 4NS and E18 1AN
My working experience includes education, both adults and children and family work including supporting and teaching parenting skills. I also have much experience as a facilitator of reflection groups and workshops.
My approach is integrative and frequently I use Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Gestalt, Transactional Analysis (TA) as well as combining other different theories and models. I am also an experienced brief solution focused therapist, which means I can work with you to resolve your problems in a very focused and time limited way. I aim to tailor these different approaches to suit you and your needs.
I am easily accessible at South Woodford, London, E18; Harold Wood, Essex, RM3 and near London Liverpool Street, E1. Conveniently located close to London Underground and mainline stations and by road and buses.
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.
