Counselling, Psychotherapy and Hypnotherapy

The Natural health centre is not only a centre for beauty and physical health but also a place to come to invest in your emotional well-being. On this page you will find details of the therapists who provide counselling, psychotherapy and hypnotherapy. Whether you are seeking support for a current problem, looking to get help with a longer term issue that has trouble you; or whether you seek support in overcoming an emotion or behaviour that impacts upon your life, our therapists are available to support you through your difficulty.

COUNSELLING is suitable for anyone looking for short term therapy (usually six sessions), often for a specific problem or issue, or for general feelings of stress and anxiety. Through talking with a third party, thought processes can be triggered and alternative response and solutions discovered.

PSYCHOTHERAPY will help an individual to dig deep to the root cause of a personality, behaviour or situation, and is likely to be longer term and more thorough.

HYPNOTHERAPY explores the subconscious mind, opening the mind up in a very relaxing and gentle way. It can be a powerful and effective means of resolving phobias, stress, habits and behaviours as well as more general issues.

As a Counsellor, I work with clients on issues including , anger management, bereavement, depression, family and relationship issues; feeling ‘stuck’, low mood, low self-esteem/self-

Lucy Ferguson: Counsellor, Psychotherapist and Hypnotherapist
Ad. Dip. PC MNCS (Acc), Cert Hyp. CS, MA (Hons)

I am a qualified counsellor, psychotherapist and hypnotherapist with an Advanced Diploma in Psychotherapeutic Counselling and a Certificate in Hypnotherapy Skills. I am an Accredited member of the National Counselling Society and the National Hypnotherapy Society.

There are lots of different ways of approaching problems, issues and aspects of lifestyle, so I will always work with the client and their specific story, feelings and concerns. I always appreciate that at first it might not be easy to open up to someone you don’t know, and my priority is to provide a relaxed and comfortable space which is safe and completely confidential. Any kind of therapy is a journey in which I will work hard to guide, reassure and support each client as they work towards solutions or changes, or simply have a place to come and talk to a non judgemental listener.

Hypnotherapy: In hypnotherapy, I work with the subconscious mind to help you overcome habits, behaviours and negative emotions. I can help you improve your self-esteem and self-confidence. Hypnosis can be very effective and powerful, working at a deep level but in a gentle and relaxing way.

Whether it’s counselling or hypnotherapy, or a blend of both, it can be a positive, uplifting experience to improve aspects of your life and, essentially, get to know yourself better.

Susannah Brindle: Counsellor, Psychotherapist, Dramatherapist  BA (Hons), MA, UKCP reg, HCPC reg

Confidential, experienced and highly qualified psychotherapist/counsellor with over 15 years experience. I offer a safe, non-judgemental space in which to explore difficulties and stuck patterns enabling a new, healthier way of being to emerge. I have a particular interest in understanding and shifting stress, anxiety and depression.
My working background has been in the Health Service, voluntary sector and private practice. I established a therapy and counselling project working with families affected by addictions and am experienced in supervising other counsellors.
Psychotherapy or shorter term counselling is a place where you can find perspective and insight, a place where negative behaviour patterns can change. A counsellor provides a supportive setting in which to share feelings, thoughts and processes. Throughout our lives we will all experience periods of difficulty which may be linked to an event such as the end of a relationship, illness, trauma or a bereavement or there may be a general sense of unhappiness or lack of purpose in life. Psychotherapy and counselling can help you stay in the present moment and use our awareness of what arises as a gateway to understand difficulties from the past and hopes and fears about the future.
I see psychotherapy and counselling as a collaborative endeavour where client and therapist enter into a relationship through which both can be changed by the encounter.

I work with individuals and groups with the aim of enabling you to enhance your life and to live it more fully. I am trained as a Core Process Psychotherapist and a Creative Arts Therapist.

I am experienced in helping clients who have experienced difficulties with:

  • Stress
  • Relationships
  • Panic Attacks
  • Anxiety
  • Bereavement
  • Redundancy
  • Depression
  • Addiction.

I am aware that the decision to start counselling and choose a counsellor can be challenging. You are welcome to contact me with any queries. I am offer a free no obligation 15 minute phone conversation.
My counselling/psychotherapy practice is within easy reach of Woodbridge, Aldeburgh, Ipswich and Felixstowe in Suffolk.
I am registered with the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) which regulates psychotherapists and counsellors and the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) which regulates a range of healthcare professions.
