Sue Clough


About Me:

Hi, I’m Sue.  I came to study counselling after having therapy myself at a difficult time in my life when I was struggling to cope.  The experience of having someone there who was impartial, non-judgemental, caring and who really listened to everything I said was so helpful for me and gave me the confidence to believe in myself again and have the courage to move forward with my life.  I can provide these conditions for you, and sit alongside you in your journey of discovery.  It takes courage to reach out, but you have taken the first step towards getting the support that you need.

What to Expect:

I am in my final year of a Diploma in Person-Centred Counselling and my work experience has been in the hospice movement, initially as part of a community team supporting patients and their families and then in counselling people with life-limiting illnesses and bereaved loved ones.  The process of grieving takes time and can be confusing and lonely as you navigate a rollercoaster of emotions against a backdrop of societal pressure to continue with your life and pick yourself up.  

My Approach:

Many of the difficulties you may be seeking help with; relationship difficulties, bereavement, full-time caring, parenthood, unemployment, and financial problems, are things that I have experienced myself and this background will help me empathise with you, although I believe that every experience is uniquely different, as are you.

Area of Focus:

I can offer you a gentle place of empathy in which you can explore your feelings at your own pace and following your own agenda.  

Lets Connect:

I believe that counselling should be accessible to everyone and that is why I am working for Inside Talk, allowing you to receive professional counselling at a time and place that suits you and at a reasonable price.
