About Me

CECILIE SASU

Therapeutic Counsellor and

Clinical Supervisor

South Croydon / Selsdon

Counselling Therapy

and Supervision.

Reg. Member MBACP (Accred)

I embarked on a career in counselling because it helped me through some difficult times, and I firmly believe it can help others too. Counselling can be hard work and emotionally challenging, but also rewarding and even fun. It certainly does not have to be all serious.

 

I try to bring all aspects of my personality into my work with clients in the hope that my clients feel comfortable and safe enough to share their stories, feelings and experiences with me. By becoming more self-aware, clients might in this way find a more meaningful way forward.

 

I work in an integrative way as a counsellor which means I draw upon different theoretical approaches when I work with clients, rather than working with just one approach. I will tailor what I offer to you, the client, depending on your needs and requirements.
