Sue Mort Counselling

Vale of Glamorgan

Nearly all of us at some time in our lives need a little help to deal with life's challenges. As an integrative counsellor/life coach, my role is to provide a confidential, safe space where a therapeutic relationship can be cultivated allowing the client to explore their thoughts and feelings and enabling them to make any changes they feel appropriate.  Although my work is underpinned by the humanist approach, (client directed talking therapy) I believe in the principles of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), (solution focused therapy) and often incorporate these concepts and techniques. Sessions are face to face, last 50/60 minutes, and are usually attended weekly, but this is flexible. I work with individuals and couples from the age of 16 upwards.

What do you love most about your job?

Being able to help someone to boost their self-esteem, to reach their full potential, to emerge from the debilitating darkness of depression, to escape the constraints of anxiety, to cope with the devastation of bereavement, or to overcome the painful effects of trauma (both recent and past) is hugely rewarding.

What inspired you to start your own business?

Unfortunately, it seems that waiting lists for counselling are often extremely long, and so there seemed a need for such a service. This combined with the fact that I am passionate about helping people, whether in distress or just needing a little support, inspired me to embark on a career in private practice.

Why should our clients choose you?

I hold the Diploma in Counselling, BA (Hons) - 1st class - in Counselling and Psychology, and ASIST (suicide intervention) trained. I originally came to counselling in 1997 volunteering with both the Samaritans (Bridgend) and Cruse Cymru (Neath/Port Talbot). I studied for the Certificate in Counselling Skills at the University of Wales College Newport in 1998-99, and then later attained my Diploma in Counselling Theory and Practice with Well Training Ltd, Swansea. The practical component of the diploma was conducted at a local GP's practice and a drug and alcohol harm reduction agency and this experience is proving invaluable now. 

I abide by the ethical guidelines of the BACP, of which I am a member. I am also an accredited professional registrant member of the National Counselling Society and have public liability insurance with Howdens. As stipulated by these bodies, I continue to undergo regular professional supervision where I receive guidance and support from a highly qualified practitioner.

More importantly though, I see the work I do not just as a job, but as a vocation, offering confidential, caring counselling.

Counselling FAQs

Expand all

Your expert Counsellor will be able to advise you on the full range of services available and will be able to advise on what is most suitable. Use Bark to get free quotes and schedule an appointment today.

At your appointment, you will be encouraged to talk about your feelings and emotions with a trained Counsellor who will listen and support you without judging or criticising.
The therapist can help you gain a better understanding of your feelings and thought processes and find your own solutions to problems. However, they will not usually give advice or tell you what to do. The Counsellor might sum up what they understand you have been saying so that they can help you to form a plan of action.

Counselling can take place in a number of ways. These include:

  • Face to face session

  • Group session

  • Phone session

  • Email session

  • Online through live chat services or video conferencing software

You may be offered a single session of Counselling, a short course of sessions over a few weeks or months or a longer course that lasts for several months or years.

It can take a number of sessions before you start to see progress but you should gradually start to feel better with the help and support of your Counsellor.

You can be confident that any of the Bark local Counsellors listed will give you a reliable and efficient service to help you feel better.

You could look for Counsellors that are accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA) which means that they have met the PSA’s required professional standards to practise.

Before you choose a Counsellor, you could read testimonials and read details of the issues they can help with on their website.

You could also look at their profile page on Bark and check out reviews from past customers too.

Counselling can help with many issues. These include the following:

  • Mental health conditions such as depression, anxiety or eating disorders.

  • Physical health conditions such as infertility.

  • Difficult life events such as a bereavement, a relationship breakdown or work-related stress.

  • Dealing with difficult emotions such as low self-esteem or anger.

  • Sexual identity issues.

  • Divorce.

  • Redundancy and work issues.

  • Phobias and fears.

Absolutely! Many Counsellors provide their services remotely via an online video call or the telephone. Not only is it more convenient, but it's also the preferable option for many people who would feel more comfortable holding the session from the comfort of their own home.
